After being in the string making business for many years, I can say with the utmost confidence that when it comes to color coordinating strings and bows, guys are much more particular than the gals. Yes. It’s true. But I’ll admit that it does look really good when a bow and all of its accessories match. For that reason, bowstring manufacturers offer an endless amount of color choices for you to outfit your rig. But does the color choice make a difference in the quality of the finished product?
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”.
