Just wondering if serving the whole string would be a bad idea. The reason I ask is I got my hands on some cool camo sprider wire serving and thought it would look cool but I do not want to affect the performance of my bow.any advise would be awsome. Since I'm new to archery.

It will add more weight to the string and slow it down. Never seen it done before and would probably look cool but I wouldn't do it.

No problem mate. Usually the center serving is 6" to 8" long. Some go shorter to pick up a bit of speed but you can run into problems. Better to stick to the standard lengths. ;)
