    Do you have to serve the string where it contacts the stopper on a STS?

    I prefer to serve mine. It has to improve the life of the string....:noidea:

    Yep, I would recommend it also.... It's easy/cheap insurance. Plus if you don't know how to do a serving it's a perfect way to learn and practice without affecting anything that already exists on the bowstring.

    If you don't you will start to see it start getting fuzzy where it makes contact.

    Thats what I thought. Plus it seams to me the string HAS to be taking more of a beating where it contacts the stopper.

    When you set a STS up do you have it touch the string at BH? or is it set to see daylight thru the string and stopper?

    I would recomend shooting groups with it set at a few different settings and see which groups the best on YOUR bow.......

    different bows respond to different distances, differently:noidea: :laugh:
