    Default Need for speed!!!

    Hey everyone, sorry I haven't been posting lately. I have been bombed with string orders. But I also took the time to set my bow up with some new treads for hunting. I also did some super tuning yeah baby. Here is a pic of the old set up. The bow set up this way would only do 264 fps.

    The changes are no idler serving, speed nocks, 22 strand string and smaller cat whiskers.

    Looks great Hutch. Love the colors. Glad to hear you picked up some speed as well. That's a heck of a jump! I noticed the strings you made for my Warthog seem to be faster as well. Now if I can just get everything back and put together, I'll be a happy camper. lol

    Good tuning and a few changes can do wonders for speed. I'm glad to hear your string business is doing well. With the quality of the ones you did for me I can see a booming business.
