Every year, prior to hunting season, I have several friends that come by for last minute bow repair. I can’t count the times I’ve seen bows 10 years old with the original string and cable set. Usually, I’ll get asked, “Do you think I should change them?”. And my usual response is, “yes, 5 years ago”.
When it comes to waxing your bowstring, it is all personal preference. Some people wax their bowstring a lot, a few times, or they do not wax it. I prefer to shoot the least amount of wax possible on the string. To me, string wax is to keep the fibers from falling apart. Living in Arizona, you would think that the heat would dry out the bowstring. However, I only wax my string once or twice a season. I know a lot of people put more wax on their strings when they are in rainy or snowy conditions, but I prefer to use the lightest amount of wax on the string. The surface area is so small the water will not soak into the string. The bowstring could be under water and the string still will not be soaked.
