I just got a new string from Horton for my back up x-bow. I'm not sure an archery shop is going to be too helpful in re-stringing since I didn't buy it from them. Any ideas on how to re-string at home? A makeshift bow press?
if it is a true archery shop they should do it for you at there shop, for a shop charge reguardless if you bought it there or not....if not then go else where as i would do, if it was me....most places i know you don't need to buy stuff there for them to work on your equipment bought elsewhere.........bob
Last year when I needed a string replaced I got arrowhead to do it for me. Of course I did get him to order it in for me. He gave me a heads up when it came in and he did the job. Arrowhead is great to deal with. I'll bet that even if you didn't buy the string from him he would help you out.
Yea, best bet is to find somebody to do it right. The other string isn't DOA yet and it's just a back up bow, so I have time to get it done right... I just wondered, I had seen somewhere that you can use a ratchet strap to change a regular bow string, didn't know if a x-bow might have a similar solution.... But that's a lot of energy in a small space to play around with... lol
