I am located in the Williamsport Area, anyone have experience dealing with Millers, Droptine, or Weavers Archery for a new string? I have a Mathews Triax and would like to have whatever shop does this work allow me to shoot 50-100 arrows and then make any final tuning adjustments as well on the day of pickup. My brother had a small issue at Droptine last summer as the supplier sent an out of spec string for his bow and it was not caught until the serving started unraveling after a couple hundred shots. Droptine was great about working with their supplier to get another string sent, however it took almost 2 months for the replacement to come in and be installed.

If anyone has other suggestions within about an hour of Williamsport I am open to suggestions.

I've heard that Miller's does decent work, no first hand experience though. Don't be afraid to buy one off of a reputable person on Archerytalk and have a local install it. You'll save money that way. You can get a good string for $50ish. I have a Bowmaster press and do the final touches my self. It's not hard and you get a little satisfaction.

Unless you know who they are getting their strings from and trust that string maker i would order a custom set and have them installed. I use twisted x strings, his servings are the best i have seen. he costs a little more than some of the other string makers but is well worth it.

Miller's archery guy is the absolute best and they've always had the strings in stock when I've taken mine there. Honestly I wouldn't take it anywhere else. IMO, that's easily the best shop in the Centre/Clinton/Lycoming county area for getting anything fixed.

I've never been to Weaver's so I can't say one way or another.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I think I will stop in at Millers during my travels this week.

I didn't realize it, but I have a few friends who have also had Wes restring their bows and all had good things to say. Since I travel through Mill Hall more frequently it makes sense to try there first.
