Service & Shipping
What is included in a set of strings?
The contents of a set vary depending on the bow type:
- Single cam bow: string and cable
- Dual or hybrid cam bows: string and two cables
Some bows such as the Mathews Monster line use 5-piece setups. As a result, these sets are more expensive.
What does ⅘ piece option mean?
Many of the new bows on the market today require extra yoke cables. These bows include Primes, Darton, Alpines and models from Mathews like Monsters, Chills, Halons, etc along with Hoyt models such as the RX-1.
What is a speed nock or TPU?
Speed nocks are the little weights on the ends of the bowstring. Most newer bows will have these while older bows may not. They are little brass weight covered in shrink wrap that will dampen noise and vibration while adding a little speed. The TPU is a rubber version of this. More information is available in our blog speed nocks & TPU’s
