Frequently Asked Questions
What is a teardrop bow string/teardrop steel cable system?
A “teardrop” string is a bow string that is specifically built for use on compound bows. It uses a teardrop connector to connect the bow string to the steel cables that come off the cams.
What are the benefits of teardrop strings?
Teardrop strings usually cost less because they are cut shorter in order to fit properly. Also, they are made of less “cutting-edge” materials than some of the very modern stuff. However, it’s less about the “benefits” and more about getting the correct type of string for your bow. If your compound bow uses a teardrop connector, then you need to buy teardrop compound bow string replacements.
What is dacron bow string material?
Dacron, the material we use in this bow string, is a polyester with excellent properties of tensile strength and stretchiness. It is a great material choice for many bows and is especially well-suited for older bows that can’t take full advantage of, or can’t safely be used with, the latest bow string materials.

I have never heard of a teardrop bow string. Am I missing something?
Teardrop connectors are not used in modern compound bows. They are strictly a vintage technology, and many archers and bowhunters today don’t know about them. If you inherited or purchased an older bow, this might be your first time needing to buy teardrop compound bow string.
