I recently read in a local hunting forum that modern bow strings require a specific type of wax with a conditioner in it. I just bought a brand new tube of Bohning Seal-Tite from Bass Pro. It’s a silicone based green tube, with the standard white wax that I grew up with. Is there any that I need to worry about, or am I okay? Any help is appreciated!
quote: “Bohning® Seal-Tite® silicone-based bowstring wax for compounds, recurves and longbows prolongs life of bowstring and helps prevent fraying and string dry-out. Designed and recommended for synthetic fiber bowstrings and cables, Seal-Tite® resists penetration by water and keeps moisture out of the bowstring, protecting critical string fibers.”
I think you’re covered
Many different brands out there and everyone has a favorite. I’ve used Bohning, BCY, Dalton, Scorpion Venom Polymeric and others. They all work. Just make sure to use the stuff you choose often.
