Honesty is loved here, so Ill give it my best shot.
Ordered a string from Shane at Strict 9 taking advatage of his 15% discount he offered on the first 5 orders.
John was/is busier than hell and had stopped taking orders so I wanted to try another makers laces out. So the decision for maker was this time around was just right time and right place.
Was originally qouted 2 weeks. When less than 4 weeks is quoted by anyone in the biz of archery, I automaticly multiply by 1.5 so I figured 3 weeks. Sucks, but is what it is in the archery world today.
It was here in 3 weeks.
Finally got to installing tonight.
No hangups doing this. It is very cool that he ties each end (no knots) together so that there is no guessing wether they are twisted up the way he intended.
Because I was curious, I did not spec the strings to start with. Wanted to whats up the way he sent them.
Top cams cable needed 2 twists taken out to bring the cams into synch. Very cool!
No draw board tonight so I didnt measure dl. Just made a mark on each side of my stop screws and put them right back where I had them with the stock strings.
Next was setting loop and resetting rest height (rest cause of skinnier arrows now, deep impacts are freaking cool!)
Not sure why, anyone care to enlighten me? My arrow was pointed to the right. Yes, just like with the original shims. So I measured it and it was way under the .875 I had it set at. So I moved that as well.
Measure a2a and brace. 1/32 shy of 35" and brace is 7 1/8". Hell, Im happier than a pig in sht right now!
Forgot the peep I will be using for hunting at home so it is not installed.
So I shot through paper. Didnt make any adjustments on the first 2 shots except just settling down and finding my anchor a little bit. Amazing how dependant I am on using the peep as another anchor.
Anyway, check the pictures out. Must say that my first impression of Shanes strings is a very positive one.
I got nothing. Im not near as cool as my Galaxy SIII
