    I for 1 am not queer. I am not saying you are if you get those colours, but then your mental health might be of some concern

    Mark, sounds like you have a decent deal there. Try 'em before you pay? Not many will do that. What is he charging if I may ask?

    If they're as good as you expect them to be that's a fair price. Just about what Bucknasty charges, with shipping included.

    Btt. I have been at a local archery store in the region (one of the most respected stores in germany) and they told me that i should replace the original strings from martin asap because they have a greater chance to break. What do you think about it? I can get a set of cables made from S-0 (do not know if you know it, it is a special product from a german string material producer (i do not know the right word for that)) for yround 60 that means around 70$ with really high quality. Should i think about changing it in the next few weeks/months?

    I don't think the Martin strings are more prone to breaking any more than other strings. Afterall, they are made from the same materials. That being said, if you have what might be a better product or better material then I thnk somewhere along the line you might give them a try. That's basically how most of us gain the knowledge we have. You never know, it just might be the makings of the next best string material or string maker.

    Of course if this should prove out you know you have a duty to post it as such in the future.
