I looked at my son's bow over the weekend and saw that his string looked pretty rough, I then pulled mine from the case and saw a little wear around the serving that I had repaired last year with some dental floss. I went into our local archery shop (Leading Edge Archery) in Boerne and found that they have a new young man working there and his specialty is making new cable and stings for bows. No having to order and wait. Custom all the way with a wide choice of colors. *Please check your cable and strings soon, season is a month away! The owner said the recommendation if you shoot a lot is every year and like me not so much every two years.

Got both my bow and my son's bow back today after new cable and strings replaced on both. Leading Edge Archery in Boerne did an incredible job. Both bow's were done in custom colors. Thank you Scott!

He is making them right then and then putting them on your bow?

They make the cable and strings on Fridays and Saturdays. The process takes a little time, I was told that they apply 300 lbs. of weight to the string during a stretching process to assure strength prior to installing on the bow. I took 2 bows to them on Thursday and they were ready Monday. I also had custom color twist on my string and solid cable color. I shot my bow to day and am very satisfied.
