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.

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. 
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
