    www.gemcountyarchery.com has been making my wife and I our strings for many years. When I get a new bow it goes straight over to Robert's shop and get's one of his strings on it. I would put his strings up against anyone for quality and his service is next to none. I shoot well over 1000 arrows a summer at 3D shoots and never had a Gem County string fail me.

    There are quite a few great string makers out there. I have used Bucknasty strings on my last three bows with nary a complaint.

    How often is it necessary to replace the string on your bow? Do they weaken with age?

    I shoot year round so I replace mine about every two years.

    When I get a new bow I will shoot in the new string, and get everything dialed in. (string loop, and peep sight) Then I take that string off with the loop and peep still on, put a new one on and shoot it in. That way the original string I can use as a backup and it is ready to go. I shoot year round also, and if I take care of my string and my bow stays in spec, I can get 3 years out of them.

    i make my own strings and really enjoy it. i take my time and get them just the way i like.....if i'm not happy, i just start over and it only costs a few dollars. the jig was spendy, but it is a stretcher and twister all in one unit, which makes it easy for a beginner to learn. it is the little jon string jig and i got it from Deezlin on Archerytalk. i make strings for all my relatives and have made enough to pay for it already.
