Looking for a new string for a Excaliber Vortex. What do you guys recommend?

The FF string gave me 9 fps more than the excel string.

OK...I'll bite....How does one go about ordering a custom string?

Re: Recommendation on a new crossbow string

Tons of custom string makes out there. I opted for ViperX on my compound crossbow. For my Excalibur, Boo strings are nice and would probably be who I went with if mine ever wears out.

I think Arrowhead has been playing around with custom strings as well?

I know they make them....how do you order them...by manufacturer?....Do you measure your existing one?

Try doing a search for Boo Strings. I have one on my Equinox, he's located in Canada.

For ViperX, they list makes and models of crossbows.

Re: Recommendation on a new crossbow string

They probably don't have anything listed for my stuff as it's older than dirt.
