    A guy at work said a local archery store charged him 60.00 to restring his bow.
    Well I thought that was a little steep.
    I used to service bows 20 years ago and was thinking about getting back into archery more anyway.
    Going to be a learning drive,
    May not happen I will have to get wholesaler and everything.
    Stay tuned

    Thanks but the bow i own is a four wheel Allen patient Whitetail II, still has original cable on it.
    Arrows are just sticks with torn fletching. Stuck field points.

    Haaahaaaa

    When I said it has been years ,it has been years.

    Heck old bows work , but this one of mine needs a sight
    And a new quiver, old one has dry rot.

    Let see I have a bow press , a nocking pliers, a bow square , a single straight vane fleching jig.
    Some old vanes and feathers and a bad memory.

    I need to get my bow out of retirement. I used to work on them as well but i dont have the tools cranky has anymore though. 60.00 is steep for a string only for sure. I wonder if the cables were also changed? that price would make more sense if they were.

    Nothing about cables
