I have some new material I want to test so looking for a couple of strings to reserve

I have limited sample material so I likely cant do more than 3 strings

This is a prototype material that isnt currently used as a string material

Jerry, I can make you up some blank strings without the center served. I'll just do the ends and leave the center bare so that you can do it yourself.....?
You pick the colors, I have 8190F in all the colors BCY has available.....?

Thanks that would be great but I need bows that are having extreme wear so I can see if this new material works

That's great send it in but if you dont mind as soon as hunting season is over can you swap it out and shoot the bow a lot to see if and when it fails

You could just send them a whole new string instead of waiting for their old one. You would have a new string ready to ship instead of waiting. Just a thought.

With tougher materials your going to need to keep the rail lubricated more often and with a fluid that has a higher viscosity I'm sure.

Super serving? I dont know what that is.

The scorpyd tester puts 10s of thousands of shots on some of the test bows he shoots and so far he hasn't seen any issues. The new material I am wanting to try is considered extremely abrasive resistant so from a logical point of view if its abrasive resistant I doubt it would be abrasive itself but time will tell.

I am a firm believer in not claiming what you don't want! So I will wait for a failure then address it if it ever happens, which I doubt, If folks will simply service their bows properly like they would an expensive rifle.

Is there going to be that odd man out that is a lemon from the get go, absolutely. I worked for a telephone company for 30 years and it was not unexpected when we would take new phones out of the box that didn't work. But the lions share did just fine.

Tim you can put any product you want under a microscope and find minor issues. Most of the time those issues do not interfere with the quality, accuracy, operation of the item.

As far as bows go, no limbs are exactly the same poundage but they can be made to shoot as if they are. I doubt any bow is dead nuts exactly the specs they should be ie square, plumb etc

Even arrows like my tapps are not perfect, you can see subtle differences in ID and OD yet they can be made to fly like darts. This is why I test, cull, index, weight match and spine match every arrow we sell. I have people that do most of the work but every arrow is weight matched by me because I want them looked at before they leave the office so every arrow is in my hands before they go in a box to ship.

I am as anal as the next guy fact is I sometimes think I am at the top of the list. I made a post on AT one time asking folks to try to see if they were more anal than I am.

So I posted an example, If I take a paper towel off a the roll and the corner tears my first thought is to throw it away and get another towel. But I dont that would be stupid and wasteful.

So what I try to do is be controlled anal.

If something is not perfect yet it works properly, is safe and wont likely break from the imperfection I tend to leave it alone and move on.

I have loved a phrase for as long as I can remember, "If it aint broke dont fix it"

Which one did you buy?
Bought the R20. It did not get delivered as a new UPS driver can't locate my house. I am out of place on house numbers but he/she is the first on 30 years of living here that did not find me. I doubt they really tried as my mailbox has my house numbers in 5" stickers on it. The quest is on to locate my bow and press. :eek:

Maybe the UPS driver wanted to meet his next rifle and take it home with him.

Found it. I had to drive to Rome, GA and back twice because they were closed to CS on 1st trip but ended up with my Ravin and my bow press. Put 115 miles on my truck too but I am glad to finally have my hands on them. They are going to try and get their computer to accept my address but I was told it was a new guy filling in for my regular guy who couldn't find my address.
