I recently replaced the string on my recurve bow. I was able to shoot thousands of arrows with the previous string. (Sniff) I miss that ol' string. Before each session, I would check and set my brace height by twisting accordingly. It was sometimes off an eighth of an inch, but other times it stayed the same between sessions.
The new string I have changes almost every time and can vary as much as a half inch in brace height between the beginning and end of sessions. By this I mean the string keeps changing lengths (gets longer) every day I shoot, so I have to twist it up. I thought this was normal at first, a sort of breaking in period. That was a thousand arrows ago. Is this to be expected, or does my new string stink? Thanks.
