I need to know if you were to have a string made for you.

1. What color or colors would you make it?
2. What color servings would you chose?

Well..................for a bow that has lots of black in it or all black, Id go with flo green and black for sure. But black and red works also..........................if I had to pick, it would be black and flo green!!!

All mine are hunting bows, so I'd go with more neutral, camo type colors. OD, Brown, Tan, Black, Dk. Green, Grey. Might throw a little color in it, but not much. Silver maybe.

I try to match it to the bow. Maybe a Black and Silver to match the Carbon look on my Nemesis? :)
If it was a Target bow i would want the string color to be loud.

Hutch, I use mine for hunting so I'd probably go green or tan and black.

Hey go for the gusto. Black Cherry and Gold. Clear halo end serving. 4" black halo center serving.

What are you up to Hutch?

Black Cherry and Silver/Black would make a cool set-o-strings.

I'm curious to see how the silver/black and flo purple/black would look with flo green serving

These are what I'm currently thinking about, possibly with different serving combos ...

5579

1a: FloYellow/FloGrn - FloGrn or Green Serv
1b: Kiwi/Silver&Black - White Halo or Green
2a: FloGrn/OD Grn - FloGrn Serv or Green
2b: FloGrn/Silver - Green or White Halo
3a: FloGrn/Black - Green Serv
3b: FloGrn/Silver&Black - Green Serv

==

Right now with them all up there I'm leaning most towards the Kiwi/Silver&Black - just got to find paracord that will match it ;) Should I go a different direction I'll have to find paracord to match that ;)

Currently have Sunset Orange/Tan&Black White Halo on my Cheetah and have another set of Sunset Orange/FloOrg&Black Sunset serving ready to go when I want to swap them out.

Predator camo

A lot of people like the predator camo. I had to match it from a picture. The guy who bought it liked it so much he call back and had me build another. A bit more labor in a four color string. But it looks good. When you are trying to match a camo. You need to pick out 3 to 4 colors in the camo. Two majors and two minors. Try to make them Contrast each other. This will make it blend in well.

I prefer to match the string to the bow, but in most cases I go black & grey with grey centre serving and black end serving.

Black Cherry and Silver/Black would make a cool set-o-strings.It does make a cool set-o-strings and Black Cherry is a great color. Silver/black is great for blending in.

Hey go for the gusto. Black Cherry and Gold. Clear halo end serving. 4" black halo center serving.

What are you up to Hutch?Your one up on me Barry. I never thought of those two colors.

5599

As to what I am up too?
I have done so many flo green and black strings. Hammerhead strings better do double time to catch up to how many I have done. So I was getting stale on helping guys pick different colors. So I want to see what my Martin buddies could come up with.

For S&G's could you throw up a picture of Kiwi & FloGr?

I hear what you are saying about FloGr/Black - it is a nice combo, but you see it a lot in my opinion. I'm definitely wanting something the green family.

I think you should go with a flo green for the serving them strings would really glow some times I like the string to look all one color with out the break up with a differant color serving

I don't have flo purple so I can't put a pic up. I think that is the only flo color I don't have.

Hutch:cool:

Looks pretty sharp I think. Would probably go White Halo or FloGr. Could see that looking nice with the FloSpec Green too. For the Alien, going to have to see how the serving lays with the strings and if they have them served for the ccs. Wouldn't want to cover up a better part of the strings with a solid if I didn't have to for that area, so that is why I would think the white halo.

I think that could look pretty sweet on a black bow too - just not much of a purple guy :p

i liked the red and grey cables x 4 and string with red end servings on my red (?crimson flame) mystic so much, that i've had all new ones replaced in the same colour.
didn't state a colour preference for the centre serving, which was previously black, just asked for the best serving for fingers release, so it ended up red also. a duller red than the previous bright red. looks better, shoots better.

Well,Hutch. The flo green/black looked great on the Cheetah,and the brown and gold w brown serving looked great the brown HCA Iron Mace. For me,it has to compliment the bow. My next set will need to be blue/black for my G5.

For what its worth, I tend to like the flo. orange and greens. As for custom strings, the only one I ever purchased was a Winner's Choice that is currently on my Scepter 3. She needs replacement probably after indoor season ends, and I'm thinking this time around a custom builder may be the way to go. Is it possible to do 3 colors? Do they make a serving that is transparent? I'm thinking red, white, and blue with a clear serving, as the bow has a patriotic theme going on already.

Red, White and Blue with clear halo isn't a problem.
