Our Guide to Find Your Perfect Bow String
Step 1: Consider what style of bow you have. Do you have a compound bow, crossbow, or recurve/longbow?
Step 2A Compound: If you have a compound bow, now you have to figure out if you need a full set of bow strings and cables or just a single bow string or single cable. Here are some options for each.
Another option is to simply type in your bow make and model into our search bar. Just the make and model of the bow or bow string is sufficient enough to guide you; sometimes too many search words lead to less-than-desirable results.
Step 2B Crossbow: If you have a crossbow, now you have to figure out if you need a full set of crossbow strings and cables or just a single crossbow string or single crossbow cable. Here are some of our crossbow options.
Just like compounds, you can search the make and model of your crossbow, and we may have a specific listing just for that particular bow.
Step 2C Recurve/longbow: If you have one of these, you don’t have to worry about cables, but you do need to narrow down your options based on whether or not your bow is fast flight compatible. If your bow is not fast flight compatible, you would need to stick to the dacron material. If it is compatible, you could use any of the materials we offer in our bow string guide.
