B55 String

  • We can determine the string length needed with your riser and limb specifications and by referencing bow manufacturer recommendations. Strings will come at that length with a standard number of twists already in the string and prestretched to reduce break in time. However if you have a string that gives you the desired brace height for your particular bow, we can match that. Here's how to measure.

Not all colors available in all materials. See color availability by material.
