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.

How can I tell if my compound bow uses a teardrop steel cable system?

Check out our helpful video on this page for a visual explanation of how to identify a teardrop connector!

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.

    Bowstring for vintage Jennings Model T Hunter

    The bowstring I received is a nice quality build with “free and fast” shipping. However, it would not wrap around my “t” type cable connector. Presently they re-working a new string (with much larger loops) to make it work. This is “above and beyond” good customer care and service! Highly recommended company for your bowstring needs!

    Tear drop compound bow string

    Ordered this to replace the worn out string on my vintage pse phaser 2. Fit perfectly. I have shot a little more than 100 arrows through it so far. It appears to have settled in nicely. Excellent price and appears to be quality. Will be buying from here again.
