String Care Products
Is there any advantage over traditional string wax to the Scorpion Venom line of string care items?
Don't wax them! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bRoVMinYMU
I use bees wax that wife & i get from our bee hives. We have a solar melter that melts it and it slides down a sheet metal chute into a meat loaf pan. Works well.
Tex Tite... Ive used it on all my strings and cables... works great on the new Mercury material also .. Just touched them up this AM with it ..
Due to the dust, dirt and abuse on bow string care is essential in Africa. I’ve test several string care products while in Africa. The product I’ve had the best success with as far as protecting string/cables is String Snot.
Sno Seal boot grease works fine, penetrates well too.
Thought it said 'Hair Care Products'.
Never mind, carry on...
I have used several products including Bohning Wax, bee's Wax, and currently using the Scorpian Venom, Polymeric wax.
IMHO, The best has been the Bohning String Wax, the Bee's wax, just did not adhere to the string unless I heated the string. The Polymeric wax seems to dry and lose the "tackiness" after a short period of time. I am told however that the Polymeric, is better for the newer string material.
Perhaps it's just me, but I like to pick up my bow after it sits / cased for a while and feel that the wax is still on my string.
Solution, as usual for me, I re-wax my string every couple of days while shooting or hunting with my bow.
