    Thanks Montalaar. That's good information.

    Most don't leave recurves strung, but you can.

    I left my 2002 Bear TD strung 24/7 for 4 years w the original FF string that came w it! Brace height dropped about 1/4 inch, nocking point did not change, neither did the draw weight. I did not need to retune it when I shot it. That was 3 yrs ago and it's still doing fine.

    I do unstring it now, and I did replace the string. I always unstring my other bows (always have) just tried that w that one to see what would happen. Nothing did, still hasn't.
