i don't know if string leeches should be tied in or not.on my BT they are tied in and my mission does'nt have any. if you look at the pic's of my new pantera you will notice that the string is seperated an inch each side of the leeches. is this normal?:confused: thanks dano

I had an Oneida Kestrel last summer that looked like that (string). I didn't like the gaps in the string and took them out. Replaced them with Mathews Monkey tails. You could try cat whiskers too. Either way the gap will be gone and so is the chance of anything getting caught in the string.

Shouldn't have to tie in leeches.I find the old cat whiskers to do a better job than leeches,split them in half and fold and they will make a nice small ball.

I apoligise in advance for posting something from the "other' M bow company, but this golf ball cat wisker is very nice, and this was the only step by step instruction I knew of, so Please ingone the signs in back of the work being done. This will remove that split open string you are concerned with. :o

I couldn't finish reading the Matthews thread. The errant use of question marks and other improper punctuation was driving me nuts! I think I got the idea,though. Thank you.

as far as the string leeches go, I tie mine in real tight to the body of the leech to eliminate the gap. It also seems to get rid of the slight string buzz caused by the gap.

Well you know what they say? "Friends don't let friends shoot a M+@#&*@"

We give the one guy that line every chance we get. It really gets rubbed in hard when we all out shoot him . With these "cheap " bows.

I really like looking on all the other forums never know when you might find a good tip.
