waxing your string

when you put wax on your bow string does it have an impact of where your arrow hits. it seams like when you put wax on your string that it will add some weight to your string and that will slow your arrow down. does this really happen or not?

Keep it waxed constantly for best results, your string life will be extended greatly. Between a dry string and freshly waxed string, I doubt you would see a difference if it were applied correctly.

If you have never waxed your string and shoot a while and then wax it, it will make some differ. because you are adding weight. At 20 very little but from there on can. No differ. than if you have those puffy string silencers and they get wet alone with string&cables make much differ. just like if you had feathers that got very wet. All will make a differ.
