So... I got the "bright idea" to replace the fibers on my Sword Apex. It was definitely a LEARNING experience. After a few "restarts" and broken fibers... I got it all in and looking pretty good. The tubing I ordered came MUCH smaller than I expected, but it turned out to be a good thing. I had to use some surfactant mixed in water dripped down the tubing to get the fibers to slide in.

Anyway, here are some pix...

That looks good.
Were did you get the fibers?
I got them here...

http://www.fiberopticproducts.com/Archery.htm

The fibers seemed to be a little brittle, however, this was my first time to do this so I don't know if was just me or if maybe ALL fibers are brittle.

They shipped fast and answered my questions. I did not want the violet color that is in the multi pack but they would not separate the multi pack, so... I had to order the multi pack and then add a single line of additional green. I have from top to bottom: green, green, red, orange, yellow.

I also ordered the tubing from them. They sell it in 3 diameters. I got the smallest and it worked for me, but it was a bugger getting those fibers in all the way! I would suggest buying the middle size if your going to put more than 1 or 2 fibers in it!

That's right... I set it up that way. At anchor, I line up the pins just along the side of the sting and when I glance at my A.S., it is usually dead on. I like having it that way... Honestly, I never even set it up where I look at my pins from the other side. I just seemed natural to have it all on one side. This way, I am not breaking my focus by passing another object MUCH closer to my eye when I glance over to it...
