i have been shooting it left handed.  that is going well.  well enough that i am going to spend more money.
i NEED now bow strings.  that used bow i bought was shot a lot!!  and the lack of a valley at full draw.  i sat down yesterday and stared at the bow.  the cams are not timed at brace.  so there is no way the cams are timed at full draw.  just perfect; oh well..i'll take the opportunity to get new strings.   i am 99% sure a timed bow will be more comfy at full draw. it is like bucking horse.  i have to stay very vigilant at full draw.

yesterday, despite the crappy bow settings, i was shooting nice groups at 20 yards.  only one arrow went into the tree this time. :)
i think will just get factory strings.  unless you all think 60x strings or something are better.

and i need a new bowsight.  i am using a broken spot hogg now.  it is so old..but surprisingly well designed.

String/cables will make a big difference. Ive never used 60x but have heard a lot of good things about them. Threadz and Rogue strings are pretty popular for the 3D shooters right now. I know folks using them and they have held up well.

I shoot stock strings on my mathews and have never had any issues.


I'm rough on my stuff and shoot a lot, so I am changing out strings every two years no matter how well it's built.




The new hoyt strings are not horrible by any means
