Where to buy new strings

Can anyone recommend a good place to buy new strings. Also, what is a good price range for decent strings.

You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?

60x custom strings, do yourself a favor and look into them I don't know them or anything just had a friend set me up and man I'm glad he did. They are a sponsor on here, check em out. I thought it said they were having a sale 60$ , but not sure.

You're the same dumb pilgrim that I been hearin' for twenty days, and smellin' for three!

x2 with 60x.

I just ordered my second set from them a few weeks ago. Strings and cables $60, took about a week to get them once ordered online. There was no peep rotation. They do pre stretch but i still had the bow retweeked at about 300 shots. My last set is two years old, with a couple thousand shots and i probably could keep them on, but i change every two years no matter what.

RIP Tuff 98-11, So many hunts, so many good times!

Awesome thanks guy. I will give 60x first look since they are a sponsor.

Re: Where to buy new strings

Last fall the Monday before our season opens I was shooting broadheads and somehow pulled a bonehead move and cut my control cable. I called every string maker I could find and they all told me 5-8 days, all except Vaportrail. I talked to them on Tuesday and Thursday I had a set of string/cables in my mailbox. They are pricey but the strings are great and I they won me over with that service. I would normally plan much better but it was a freak accident and they saved my season opener; which I have never missed since I started archery hunting.

Next would be 60x. I've bought other supplies from them and they have always been great. Once they sent the wrong color paracord, told me to keep the wrong color, and sent the correct color out immediately. No questions asked.

I change my strings/cables while the current ones are still in good shape but on the down side of their life span and keep those in a safe place just in case something happens to my system during the season whereas, I can simply put the old ones on my bow do a little fine tuning, keep hunting and order new strings.

Thanks for the reminder. I have been meaning to buy a back up set in case something like that ever happens again. I did save the string and one cable as they were like new still. But I am one cable short obviously.
