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.
