How much longer will this last?

Is this string wearing normally or am I doing something wrong? Is it time for a new one or do I have a while yet?

That appears to normal wear and tear. I have found that with endless loop strings, the string loops are a little more robust as the loops are served.

I shoot a lot and replace my strings every two years and I unstring my bow when I am not shooting.

I think you are fine for awhile. Hard to give you an exact date of when your string will fail.

This is a little over a year but probably only two months of shooting every day. I always unstring the top and that is the worn loop.

Your top loop wears faster as that is the one slides down your limb when your string your bow.

In my opinion you are fine for the rest of this season. I reserve my loops once before the string gets replaced.

I would not serve over your loops on a Flemish twist string. That is another reason I try and shot an endless loop string.

I have one Flemish twist string that looks like yours that is two years old with oretty heavy use and it fine, safe to shoot. Replace after the season.

Don’t let this sour you on Flemish twist strings, they are easier to twist up or down to adjust brace height and built correctly they are tough as nails. There is a reason most people I know use them.
