    www.gemcountyarchery.com has been making my wife and I our strings for many years. When I get a new bow it goes straight over to Robert's shop and get's one of his strings on it. I would put his strings up against anyone for quality and his service is next to none. I shoot well over 1000 arrows a summer at 3D shoots and never had a Gem County string fail me.

    There are quite a few great string makers out there. I have used Bucknasty strings on my last three bows with nary a complaint.

    How often is it necessary to replace the string on your bow? Do they weaken with age?

    I shoot year round so I replace mine about every two years.

    When I get a new bow I will shoot in the new string, and get everything dialed in. (string loop, and peep sight) Then I take that string off with the loop and peep still on, put a new one on and shoot it in. That way the original string I can use as a backup and it is ready to go. I shoot year round also, and if I take care of my string and my bow stays in spec, I can get 3 years out of them.

    i make my own strings and really enjoy it. i take my time and get them just the way i like.....if i'm not happy, i just start over and it only costs a few dollars. the jig was spendy, but it is a stretcher and twister all in one unit, which makes it easy for a beginner to learn. it is the little jon string jig and i got it from Deezlin on Archerytalk. i make strings for all my relatives and have made enough to pay for it already.

    Vapor Trail for me as well. No complaints so far and this is my third set. I usually get 2 years out of mine, but I don't like to keep my string waxed very much, so mine don't last as long. I like a little bit of a dry string.
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.
