New string in order?

Post by Extreme » Sun Sep 10, 2017 11:27 am

I have a matrix 355 and i think the string is stretched so bad that no amount of twists will fix lol
Its currently sitting at almost 1/4" off the rail
To bring it back up to the brace line on the rail it will need over an inch and 1/4 of twists.
Heading to Cabelas this afternoon for a new string.
How much can a string safely get twisted before it looses strength.
Im getting the Reds this afternoon as well

I totally agree as there are several great string twisters on this site that make custom strings that put the factory strings to shame and at very good prices to boot.
