    What year Cheetah? A lot of the string makers already have the specs for each year. Also your spec sticker should give you the lengths.

    Awesome! Now my next question is what bowstring should I/need to best fit my bow? I'm pretty sure it's a 2007 model

    Thanks. So I think I'm going to purchase the Hammerhead Single cam set. Would this be a good fit?

    What year bow do you have the bottom limb sticker should tell you the shoot and the buss. The shoot is the string and the buss is the cable. And the first 2 digits of the serial number is the year of the bow. You will need the string to match whatever length that the sticker says.

    I have the 08 model. My shoot string length is 84.5 and split is 31.5. Is the single cam string the one I need?

    You would order a single cam string set and enter those two numbers for the lengths. I believe they sell those for 69 and change plus shipping. If your interested in a custom string in custom colors I can build you one as well just pm me.

    Not to push, but I would recommend a custom set from Hutch or another builder. I happen to have a set for an 08 in my shooting box that I got from a giveaway that I haven't thrown on my Cheetah. They are Sunset Orange/Flo Orange Spec with Sunset servings from Proline that I'd sell ya. The strings I have on my Cheetah are going to last me for quite a while yet.

    Reasoning for the custom sets is they way they are built, you won't see any stretch or twist from the better builders and you get a choice of colors. They are all really nice strings.
