That string looks solid to me.Ok so I used to bow hunt quite a bit. Haven’t gone in last couple of years but hoping to get back out there this fall. I’ve owned this Mathews Switchback since around 2008 and I know the strings been replaced at least once. I think it looks fine but wanted some opinions before I start shooting it again. And yeah I know my bow is old and slow but it shoots great and I ain’t changing.
It all depends how much you shoot it, wax it, maintain it. I had one for 10 years once. The one I have now is 3 years. I start shooting around May until season starts,I shoot 2-3 times a week 6-12 shots each time. I use a lot of wax. You need to wax the whole thing but most importantly look at where the string or cable attaches to your cam or pulls you need to get some wax on your finger and wax the entire loop connected to cam if you've not nicked the string and careful with it that's the spot that wears out. I'll change this one in 2 years when it's 5 years oldHow often do you guys change out the string on your compound bows? The one on my Mathews has gotta be 5 or 6 years old by now. Thinking it might be time to get a new one.
