Thumbs up My "Wicked1Strings" (Test) Review!!

The first thing i noticed about my strings package, is that it was more than what i asked for. It was more like a care package, it came with string, cable, matching d-loop material and peep serving... The color was a perfect match to my bow, a 2008 Lizard Green & Black, Mathews Apex 7. The next and most amazing thing i noticed, was after having installed them on my bow, was the fact that my bow was in complete factory spec. No twisting or untwisting of string or cable had to be done, perfect right out of the package. Brace height was exactly 7" and the ATA was exactly 38", but then came the small problem..... After shooting it through my chronograph, i found that my bow, which was shooting at 288 fps was now shooting 293 fps, a 5 fps speed in crease at the exact same draw weight and arrow. Dang, this puts me well over the 280 fps + or - 3% ASA speed rule for the open class , i guess that means i'll just have to drop my draw weight down from 59 pounds to about 57 or so. Man that's going to suck......"NOT".....

Here's a couple of picture's, not the best pic's in the world, but here they are.[/B]

Glad you like the string Ive been shooting them for a while now and they are great.. I thought they changed the speed limit to 300+/- 3%

Nice looking strings!

I hope you had your press opened up a little more then the picture when you changed your strings and cable.

That’s a sharp looking setup for sure – looks cool and should shoot lights out, congrats!

Also welcome to the site!


One question though, being on the Mathews Staff as you state in your stuff, do they allow you to use different strings?

Oh no, that press is a antique. I just use it now as a place to hold a one bow, while i work on another.....

That may be so with the factory pro staff, but not on the pro shop shooters staff. There i can shoot any item i want on the bow, as long as it's a Mathews bow. However, i think the season is about to change in that area also.....
