Question by Archery 101. Uploaded on January 17, 2010
go to a bas pro or a like shop... the string is pretty cheap and they usually put it on for free
If you want the best get winner's choice string and cables. Should be able to get them at your local pro shop.
MAKE SURE THAT YOU GO TO AN ARCHERY PRO SHOP TO HAVE IT DONE SOME OF THESE CHAIN STORES HAVE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT PROPERLY TRAINED WORKING ON BOWS. I HAD WORK DONE AT A DICKS STORE A FEW YEARS AGO AND THEY PUT AN ARROW REST ON THAT SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN PUT ON THAT BOW AND THEN THEY DID NOT EVEN HAVE IT ADJUSTED PROPERLY. TO PUT IT SHORT THEY HAD THINGS ALL SCREWED UP. I NOW HAVE A FRIEND WHO HAS BEEN TRAINED BY PSE THAT DOES MY WORK. MY FRIEND CHARGES ABOUT $30 FOR A STRING AND ABOUT $50-$60 FOR STRING AND CABLES. YOU SHOULD PROBABLY HAVE BOTH DONE TOGETHER.
You can buy at the pro shop or order online. I second Winners Choice. Definitely have someone that knows your brand of bow put the string on. Pro shop might charge a little bit more but have their reputation to uphold.
I'd go with Winners Choice, or Zebra as a second choice. I agree about going to a bow shop instead of a chain store. You'll pay about $100.oo installed i think.
i had mine done at a local Gander mtn store they have a few people trained to work on bows only they are good at it it cost me about $25 for the string and $10 to have it installed but it can range in total from $30-$80 if it cost much more you might go somewhere else.
Good luck and good hunting
local pro shop, gander mtn, cabelas, bass pro
Any bow store or shop. I got mine redone and i got it put on and new string for 10 dollars.
