What is the most important part of the bow and arrow set up? The string and cables!

The most overlooked and most important part of the bow is the string and cable. Why? The string and cable control a lot of factors that affect arrow flight and accurate shooting.
Factors and problems: Cam rotation problems- When the string or cable creeps(The string or cable strech's and doesn't return back to its original length). When this  happens, changes in drawlength, poundage, and Nock travel are the result. Your bow casts the arrow differently due to the changes. A loss or gain of speed due to poundage change and drawlength change will affect up and down arrow flight; more importantly nock travel may change into a "roller coaster ride" for your arrow making your bow untunable due to the sharp exit launch at the end of the power stroke or release of the arrow. We all have had problems with cam timing with two cam bows and now even more headaches with the new Tri-nary,Bi-nary and cam and 1/2 systems. They are even harder to keep in tune with the mega fast speeds these bows are producing; even the solo cams run into problems when the cams are under rotated or over rotated.
Don't waste your time tunning your string and cable set up every two weeks due to creep! Get Mike's Strings And Cables! Zero Creep, Super Quiet, Super Fast, Deadly Accurate! Demand the Best!
See why Mike's Strings and cables are the best and how they are so fast, quiet, stable and accurate below!

Mike's Strings and Cables are made with only the best string material 452x. Tests have proven that it doesn't creep or stretch like all other string materials. Because there is no creep your bow stays in tune with zero cam rotation.Your bow stays rock solid! Consistent cast of arrow-flight. Same poundage, drawlength, and same nocktravel equals great arrow-flight or consistent arrow-flight! Less oscillating equals less noise!
Problem #1 fixed! Your bow stays in tune!Zero Creep!
Recommended strands: 20 for 70 pounds or less
                                       24 for 70 pounds or more
Breaking strength: Approx ft/lb 8800
Note: 452x has the strongest breaking strength than any other material so I recommend 20 strands for max speed.

Problem # 2 Nock fit.
When the nock fit is to tight it slams the arrow on the rest or gives the arrow a side to side whipping action on release. This is just as bad as a roller coaster ride due to nock travel problems. It has the same affect! Bad arrow-flight. The nock must fit snug or slightly loose when on the string.It should click on but not pinch the string, therefore the string can move free without the arrow nock affecting it; this helps with peep rotation and more importantly the arrow releases cleanly with no affect of the string oscillating on release or no roller coaster ride for the arrow. Along with that there is no noise on release or no pucking of the violin.

Static yoke system

Problem # 3 Horizontal string travel.
With some bows its important to have the cable served by the split "Y". With this you can adjust either side of the split "Y" for level limbs and level cam lean or zero cam lean. I normally serve all cables for this purpose but some bows don't need this option. I do make a Floating yoke if desired but must be requested!

Fixing cam lean/ Limb lean and Horizontal Nock travel

As you can see the most important thing you can do to make your bow shot better is replacing your String and cable or cables with good stable strings made with 452x.

Mike's warranty covers any problems or mistakes made to the strings such as wrong lengths, peep rotation problems after 100 shot break in period, Serving separation within 200 shots and wrong placement of servings. This warranty is only good if you return product for inspection within 30 days. Outside the us the product must be returned within 90 days. The product will then be tested for length, peep rotation, and separation. If there is a problem you will get a new replacement string or cable or the product will be fixed. If product is good or with no problems then you will be put on the "No Service list" and no longer can buy any of my products and if you order your money will be sent back or refunded. I don't serve those people that try to take advantage of this awesome price for my strings. I work hard making my strings the best I can and at this price I can't afford to replace strings and cables that have no defects. I already give you the best price and when I have to replace any strings or cables I make less than minimum wage. What can I do when the string or cable is at the perfect length? When the length is perfect then thats a good idea that the installer is installing strings wrong or your string or cable is shorter or longer than call out. I don't have the power to know that you need a 1/4 inch shorter or longer string or cable if you don't tell me or if manufacturer doesn't have it as a call out. If you don't give me the length then I can only make them to follow the manufacturers call out. Why should I have to pay for the manufacturers and your misinformation? They don't put this information on call outs because the string and cable can be adjusted to fit perfect if the installer knows what he is doing. You can contact me any time for any help to fix this or any problem. Click on the link below to see how to fix these problems, install and tune your new strings and cables. These tips will help you not only install your string and cables right but tune them like the pro's. Thanks Mike

Brent(UT)-"I was about to give up on archery.Every year I would be high or low and miss all the time. Thanks to the bow you built and strings and stealth hunter rest I not only had a hunt of a life time but shot a big 2 by 3 muley deer.I can't wait until next year! I love archery now! Thanks a ton!"
Roy(MA,Methuen)-"Mike, I don't know how you made a 20 year old bow shoot like a brand new one but you did! Converting old steel cables to strings, changing cams and so on. You did what all of the local bow shops didn't want to do and would not spend time doing. You saved me hundreds and I thank you so much." Note: Most pro shops are not pro shops. Their understanding of bows and arrow flight is limited.Why? because they use the bow manufactors for information. The problem is even the engineers are ignorant. I have had alot of engineers laugh at me and say it was impossible but a few weeks later I have built the impossible. It's funny I invent something 2-10 years earlier and it comes out as the big hit on the archery market later."When will they learn?"
Mike(FL)-"Hi Mike, tested the bow with your str/cbl set this morning at the local Bass pro and here at home. Set up my paper box at 6 feet from arrow tip...First shot...BULLET HOLES! Then shot 4 more from same distance, with same result. I then moved box out to 10 feet, same BULLET HOLES! Went home and shot approx 2 doz arrows, the bow shoots very consistantly and speed looks same as stock string judging from depth of penetration into foam target block. Give yourself a huge pat on the back Mike. The string is s-w-e-e-t, and looks awesome. Will send pics if I can put bow down long enough to get around to it, lol. Thanks a million, you are the best!!!" Note: Mike is a super repeat customer! A good stable string gives consistant arrow flight and great groups. Besure to paper tune bow. It may take a few shots before bullets are achieved.Thanks Mike
Keith-"Received the strings today and installed them. To say I was impressed is an understatement. Everything so far looks perfect. Love the quality for sure." Note: because I'm human I do make misstakes. With new bows I may need you to return for any fixing. Thanks Mike
Marty(Arkansas)-" I've gotten a couple of guys around here to put on Mike's Strings and Cables and they are very satisfied with them. Thanks guys for producing quality products and keeping the cost favorable."
Chad-"I was looking for a string to replace my WC on my Sceptor. I came across a website....Mike's Strings and Cables. He had custom strings for 30 bucks with free shipping. I figured why not. I got the strings in 4 days. Honestly I wasn't expecting much for $30. I put them on and had peep set in at about 30 shots. After 500 shots they look just like the day I got them in the mail. I am amazed! This guy really takes pride in his work. Some of the tighest end servings I have ever seen. Keep up the good work!!!"
Chad(Alaska)- "I was planning on getting a Winner's Choice string and then ordered your strings. After shooting your strings for two weeks I knew I made the right choice."
