    Picked up a new finger bow the other day. It's a 96' model Hoyt SuperStar Legacy. An oldy but a goody! 20161005_181408.jpg 20161005_181446.jpg

    I got this one on ebay. After a complete pull down, clean and reassemble it came up looking pretty good. When I get the time I might even make a new set of threads for it.

    That's neat that you can make strings. I just bought and installed a set from 60x and they seem really good. They're BCY X. Old set was 452x, and it lasted about 3,000 shots. I mean, after a good wax it still looked good, but it was fraying quite a bit. They say the X stuff is more durable. What do you typically use?

    I used to get 60x strings which are great. I'm always mucking around with different bows so I learnt to make my own strings. I use bcy-x material which seems to be pretty good. 452x would be the next choice, I think it's pretty damn good too.

    I used to have that bow when they first came out. It shot really good, it just didn't fit my hand right, great bow though.
