    Default what do you use for string care?

    I've used Bohning products and much like the Xcellerator, but use sparingly and work in good. Scorpion Venom is also good and in my bow case. It comes with a leather patch.

    The standard, usually kind of hard, Seal tite, use a lighter to heat up and apply. After applying work in well.

    I shoot a lot when I shoot so I wax after each session and ready to go for the next session.

    If wax builds up, you're not working in good enough - just don't work until string gets hot.

    Once a year, I take the tension off the string with the bowmaster so that I can work the wax into the string bundle, work the leather till the wax is warm and penatrates easily, back the bowmaster off and give the string another rub down, clean off any excess, and then I check them every time I shoot.
