I successfully installed my new string and was taken aback how much the old string is actually stretched. I did not need to cut away the old string because it was a full inch longer than the new one. I hope I got the right string.
How do I measure where to put the brass nock thing that stops the nock from migrating upwards when you draw the bow? I remember doing this a long time ago back in the late 80's but can't for the life of me remember how now.
I lightly crimped the new nock ring thing around the string so that the arrow, before drawing, is at a 90 degree angle to the string. I checked it with a roofing square, but those are notorious for being non-square. LOL!
The bow is much harder to draw now!!! More than I expected by a lot. I almost can't draw it. This makes me think maybe the string was actually too short. I bought a 36 inch string just like it says on the sticker in the belly... err on the inside of the limb part. Are compound bows bellies called something different?
