My bow strings....

8 posts in this topic

Heck I have a good compound bow but the string twists. I have a D-loop and a wrist strap release and everyshot the loop is 180 backwards every time. Is this bad?

Thanks

Do the strings continue to twist even after you've realigned the d-loop?

Once broken in, most high quality strings twist very little. On my bow I've had the same strings for 1.5yrs with way too many shots to count and my string has only twisted about 1/4 turn since I had the peep installed. My peep is one that does not use tubing, so if my string was twisting, I would know cause I wouldn't be able to see through it.

If it continues to twist then its time to replace them.

I'm gonna say I'm retarded...

#1 I prolly posted this in the wrong section...sorry

#2 I havn't tried to realign the D-loop....DOH!

I just grab it with my release, when I draw back it pulls it straight. The D-loop is tight and I dunno if I can re-align it. I have a tube on the peep and my son has one like yours.

My tube has broke a few times. Anyway, the string has been twisting since last year , but I do get decent groups. it's just a scarry thought of drawing down on an animal and to think I could avoid a mishap. I'm not into unethical treatment of animals as I am a big promoter of humane treatment, including a quick kill not to mention my own safety...I plan on hunting with it this year.

What kind of string do you all recommend?

You would get more responses in the archery forum.. Aftermarket strings will help..

It might be as easy as adjusting the d-loop.. I myself would take it to a proshop and have them either re-seat the peep in the other direction(since you said it was perfectly backwards) or have them twist the string a time or 2...

As for stings..

winners choice are probably the most popular, but there are a ton of good aftermarket strings.. they are not cheap to get good ones, expect to pay close to $100 for new stings and cables.

Thank you sir,

There's a pro shop out towards Mora on 65 I think. I have seen a huge arrow on their building. Heck one time I saw about 60 deer carcuses pilled up there too...LOL

I bet they could help me.

Glad to be able to help... I too have seen the arrow you are talking about, but have never been to that shop...

Best of luck and if you have any more archery related questions, feel free to post them in the archery forum.

If the string is in good shape yet, like mentioned just put a twist in it until it becomes realligned. You'll need access to a bowpress unfortunately. Otherwise it may be a good time to just have the string/cable replaced. Winner's Choice & Vapor Trail are good places to start or even Stone Mountain if you don't want to break the bank.

    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
    • Buddies from Michigan, MN, ND and WY got here Sunday, started hunting yesterday. Yesterday coulda gone better and coulda gone worse. We had 2 spots in a marsh that we were debating on setting up. Chose spot B. Had we chose spot A, we woulda been absolutely covered up in birds. There was about 1500 pins, teal and a few wigeon sitting there when we came by. at least we shot a couple nice bwt. Total take was 17. One drake bwt was already in the freezer when the pic was taken.    Day 2 was a diver hunt. Mainly had redheads come in, with one nice flock of scaup that we dropped 7 drakes out of. Had 3 flocks of buffies buzz the edge of the longlines but not commit to
