    Not a bad idea. If you haven't purchased strings yet.... go through Hutch-n-sons archery on this forum. He makes great strings,makes them fast, and they are a great price!

    How old are the strings? How many shots on them? I've strings that have gone over 15,000 shots and still good. One set I know have over 20,000 and still good.

    A good waxing every so often will keep the fuzz in control and it's not unusual for strings to fuzz some.

    Your loop could stand some waxing or replace, but wax the replacement really good before installing.

    Looks like you need the center serving reserved. Gapped outside the knot. Serving looks bunched inside the loop. Brass nock is not needed if loop is tied correctly.

    Most all agree that strings should be replaced every two to three years, but this is not totally necessary. I know of strings 4 and 5 years old and still very functional.

    Give them a good waxing and tie a new loop and you'll be ok. Even if you plan to get a new set, still get a good coat of wax on those and you can keep them for backup. String care is one thing that I think a lot of people overlook. Need to keep up on it and they'll last you a good while.

    Thanks for the advice all
    General i only wax monthly and use the wifes hair dryer to melt it right in
    And as for the age the string would be about a year old tho it dose get alot of use at least 100 arrow fired a day either stress relif after work or for fun on the weekend
