    Default New Nemisis Restrung

    Well, I got my strings from Hutch two days ago. First impression was good. I'm used to looking at quality strings and these are as good as any I have ever seen. The color combination I chose was Flame, Silver/black speckled with clear halo for all end servings. Center and STS are red. To me it's kind of classy without being too..........

    Got to really look them over the next day and then git to installing them, but first had to do some necessary machining work. Most of us know about and/or have experienced excessive serving wear and I'm no different. This Nemisis showed such wear on the string serving after only a few hundred shots. My 2011 model did the same thing. I did do some careful analyzing and decided that the main problem was caused by sharp inner edges of the string grooves and the inner edge of the modules.

    First step was to tear down the bow and dig out the files. Mainly used a small rat-tail. At times I stopped and run a fingernail over the edge till satisfied that there were no roughness or burrs. While I was at it I did the other bow and my 2010 Alien Z, something I've put off doing for some time. I just can't see putting a good quality set of strings on a bow because the serving gets chewed up without fixing the root problem. No sense in throwing good money after bad.

    Anyway, that taken care of I installed the strings just as they came. a2a came in about 3/16 short, brace was right on, and draw weight was about 3# heavier than before. A few twists here and there should bring things in fairly good although I don't usually worry too much about specs so much as how the bow feels. I did get to sight it oin for 20 yards and although I need a half twist on the bottom end of the string to orient the peep there is no peep rotation. I'm more interested in keeping an eye on the end servings to see if the serving wear problem is solved.

    Anyway, here's are a few pics and a big thanks to Hutch for a good looking set of strings.P1010040.jpgP1010038.jpgP1010036.jpgP1010039.jpg

    This is just my opinion, but I think the long launcher forks are stupid. I know guys think they have to have some kind of containment system, but I never have and still don't. They have this stupid bar across the top to keep the arrow from coming off the rest. The forks have to be long enough so that the bar is way above the fletching. I have never needed any of that crap. Further, it's my thought that the longer forks take longer to get down out of the way so could show clearance issues if you have a very fast bow.

    As I am just a 3D/target shooter all my drawing and such is very controlled (except the target panic) and I keep my draw weight low enough that I can control the draw cycle very well. Therefore the forks get cut down to get out of the way faster. Actually, they are still about 1/2" high and I could concievably cut another 1/4" off them. Notice that the "containment" bar is also removed. That's the first thing I did after removing it from the packaging. Let's just say that I took a mouse trap and altered it into a better mouse trap for my purposes.

    No Brad. When I was editing the pic I wanted to insert a date and that is the one that came up. For some reason I couldn't change it.

    +1 on this.
    I use Limb Driver rests but still cut the forks on the launcher arm in half.

    Nice bow and strings Barry. Just the color of strings I would do! I think i'm gonna like my new Crimson Pantera. One more question, how is the paint on the bow? Smooth, shiny, and durable? It will be a nice addition to my hmmm... Alpine Fireball.

    Thanks,

    Kurt
