    Default String length question

    I have a set of strings that I thought were made for a Switchback. The factory string is 91.5" long, but these are about 90.5" long. Is the string made incorrectly? Do I have to put it under tension to measure it? Thanks, Chris

    What kind of string was originally on the bow? Is the string supposed to be 91.5" or is that what it measured? If it's the actual measurement then it may have crept an inch over time. That's why you replace those factory strings.

    Do as JAVI says and measure it again.

    Will do. The factory spec for the string on a switchback is 91.5". My custom made string from a local shop seems short, but I didn't measure it under tension. I actually sold the switchback, and I just found the string set in my bow travel case pocket. Funny how things turn up.
