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.
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
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.
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!
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.
