    If you are having a custom string ordered remember a few things.

    1. A good string builder will have a bunch of different style nocks. Let him know what style of nock you are using and he will set your center serving to that style nock.

    2. Also length of center serving, it makes a difference in the length. I prefer a shorter center serving. Standard use to be 7" but it has changed over the years to 5"


    Here is one of my nock tools I made.Strings and Cables - General Archery Forum

    A good set of strings if kept waxed don't really need to be changed as often as most people change them or think they need to change them with todays materials.

    I usually change mine more because I want new colors then anything. I took a set off my Katera this winter that I had on for 2 full seasons. That includes practice, shooting field for two seasons and one indoor season. They didn't "need" to be changed but I wanted a different color. I still actually have them on my other Katera

    The most miss information is creep and stretch. They are not I repeat not the same.
    Creep is when the fibers start separating. This is when the fibers that are woven together start breaking down. Thus pulling apart and causing fuzzing and could cause premature breakage. This can change and vary by the material you use. Some materials have no creep.


    Stretchis when all the strands of a string pull equally together to their maximum length. Thus why they call it stretch. A good string maker avoids this by building with constant tension on each strand. Then pre stretching it to cause all to stretch to the same length. Thus no peep rotation.

    I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

    Your welcome Westy. Zebra strings are made quite different and have as long as I have known had some peep rotation. Do to the fact they twist half of the strands one way and the other half the other. Then they twist them together. If I remember right that is the way they do them. Their site says that it is a patent system which reduces peep rotation. A good string builder eliminates peep rotation
