Get this string Wax for your compounds, recurves, longbows and crossbows. It prolongs life of the strings and helps prevent fraying and string dry-out. Designed and recommended for synthetic fiber bowstrings and cables, string wax resists penetration by water and keeps moisture out of the bowstring, protecting critical string fibers. Regular use of the wax greatly reduces string friction and abrasion against cables, slides, wheels and cams. It penetrates into string fibers without damaging the string, and remains tacky enough under all weather conditions to hold strands together, yet not sticky and will not freeze or become brittle.
To wax your string, first remove any contaminants such as dust, dirt and old wax from your bowstring. Clean off any dirt and grime buildup on your string with a clean, soft cloth. Waxing strings without first cleaning them can drive dirt deeper into the string, causing premature wear and unwanted friction within the string. Then apply the wax stick up and down on all areas of the bowstring and cable, including areas of the string that are served which helps to keep the bowstring from moving inside the serving and minimizes wear. With your index finger and thumb, vigorously work the wax into the string and cable, going from one end to the other. Remove any excess or residual wax with a cloth.
