    Default help question

    I am currently stationed in iraq and have a question about my bow. I have herd different things and just need a for sure answer. Do I need to in so many words winterize my bow or what should I do as far as storage. I will be going home for 2 weeks and want to take care of that if needed. My bow is a prize possetion of mine and want to take care of it as needed. If some one could replie it would be much appreciated. Thank you

    I would turn the weight down, wax the crap out of the string and store it in your room on basement. Don't put it in the garage or attic.

    You don't say how long you will be away from your bow so this advice is assuming it will be 6-12 months or longer that the bow will sit.

    First off I would like to say thank you for your service to our country I have the upmost respect for you and all of our men and women who are doing such an important job. And I would like to you to the forum.


    Very good advise wax is an absolute necessity for a string and cables. I also assume you have a nice case for it to be stored in. If not I would suggest you at least go to Wal-Mart and purchase a cheap hard case, but if you can afford it get a nicer one from your local proshop. Then I would suggest you just slide it under your bed at home. Good luck and welcome again to the forum.
