    Default Need New Strings

    What should I get?

    I sit down in my stand...getting all set...grab the bow to nock an arrow...bounce my slick trick off the string AND cable. cut a few strands on each. So do I get down and hike all the way back to camp, or just say a prayer and hope it holds? Guess which one I did

    Talking Here's what I think !

    I seem to always check my strings before hunting season , and own two more backup hunting bows that are checked and ready for hunting !

    If its just a strand or two....personally I wouldn't end a hunt over it....I also wouldn't not go out in near future over it. Your either only gonna shoot once or not at all.

    In the meantime I would hop on http://hinkystrings.net/ and order a set of strings. $65 and he will have you on your way....if they are good enough for a Multi time national champ and shooter of the year and team Overkill they are good enough for me. I have been shooting them for the past 3 years and couldn't be happier...and I have known Randy longer then that. He will take care of ya.

    I figured the strings had one more shot in them...and besides, my freezer was empty. I shot a doe about 30 min later After that I tightened down the limb bolts on my son's bow and used his for the rest of the trip. He was ok with using a rifle and didn't give me any grief with stealing his bow.

    Slippy...get off my back, I am buying another set of strings! plus I have another hunting rig backup (and I guess my son's bow as a backup to the backup)

    if you are needing a set of strings and cables then i would seriously look at proline strings they are some of the best out there and i have great luck out of them. joe is a great person to deal with.

    Check out vaportrails strings. They usually have a very good turn around time. Great strings and competitive pricing as well.

    $90 for Vapor Fails isnt very competitive. www.hmbowstings.com are $60.

    I just put on a set of Vapor Trails. Great customer service and they were settled in a couple shots.
