Ok guys and gals let's here your opinions. I want your choices for colors and string types. Let me have them all camo or colors. These will help me decide on my inventory in the future.

Jerry, I have talked to Wayne. I have been making strings for quite a while I can make quite a nice string and Iam considering starting my own business out of it. I just wanted some color opinions. And what types people prefer.

Lately I've been into a yellow/black (or dark brown) combo... They look real nice on either a camo or a pro-red bow. I usually have that or a red/black combo on my Cougar. For my Platinum Scepter 3 I like the red/black the best. The Mathews black cherry color really looks great in a yellow/burgundy combo string and burgundy cable.

Oh, I too have made a string or two... :)

Take a look at the manufactures target colors and you can get a pretty good feel for what all the desired colors would be.
Black and White will be a standard thread color to have
Blue
Red
Green
Maroon
Tan/Brown
Grey

Seems like that would cover most all of the colors I can remember seeing. And I'm sure the same assortment of servings would be a good idea too.

And thanks for all the advice you've given me with string making. Best of luck to ya

Mike, I have just about every thread color you could get. I just don't want to have string material sitting around and not use it. I am trying to get a base for my inventory. and if you have any other questions feel free to ask.

I have used and liked red/blue, red/black, gold/red, or the basic brown/black/green camo looking strings. I have used 8125 and ultracam material as of late, and gotta say I like the ultracam alot! The 8125 is great also, but it seems the ultracam is more stable.

I try to match my string colors to my bow colors. It just looks REAL good. Black UltraTec, black and silver strings. Camo UltraTec, black and tan (tan because the dark brown is pretty dark) strings.

Camo color combo (Brown/Tan/Green) has been the most popular this month by far thanks to hunting season. Red/Black (keep plenty of black!), Black/Olive Drab, Red/White/Blue tricolor, also popular this month.

Definately keep Black, Red, Blue. I'm also stocking yellow,green,white,purple and the new Tri Color blue/black/grey that looks very nice.

BCY is supposed to have a dual color string material available that forms a pattern when strung.

Keep at least .021 & .026 centerserving sizes in various colors. I only stock 2D for endservings. I haven't found any reason to use anything else.
HTH & Good Luck!

Strings

Sean, Here is a photo of a couple of your strings. I will say you make some very nice strings. The picture may not do them justice but on the Cyber is tri-colored camo and on the Bowtech it is the chocolate with forest green servings. Hoytshooter knows his strings. Thanks Sean.
