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.
