Question by Eric Greene. Uploaded on February 21, 2012
With the newer waxes like Venom(syntetic) you should reapply as often as you start seing hairs on the string and cables. Older non fast flight strings should be kept well waxed to where it looks as though the wax is caking yet soft and pliable. I make it a habit to put scorpion venom on my string about every 50 shots or so unless I get the bow dirty,then I wipe them off and reaplly. It's cheap insurance
I usually wax beginning of the season and the end of the season. But deerhunterrick stated everytime you start seeing hairs is a good indicator of needing wax. I also store my bow in a bow case
I WAX MINE BOUT EVERY 3-6 TIME I SHOOT IT...
It depends on the string, as above, and also on how often you shoot. Generally, when you start to see any little flyers, as deerhunterrick mentioned. I shoot about once a week during the summer, and genereally wax once a month or so.
I like to keep my string pretty well waxed but i also shoot about 4 times a week but for the most part when you can see and frays starting to show
I wax mine after ever time a shoot because the sting will last so long then. So it will save you money in the long run.
