The very first compound bow string was made from steel cable. The materials used on the recurves of the day would not hold up to the abuse the newer compounds were laying out, and steel cables were the answer. The bow manufacturers of the day realized that a lighter material could add speed, and the materials we use for a custom compound bow string today are the result. Dacron, B50, Dynaflight, 452x VTXm, 8190, Dynema and the list goes on and on in the continuing evolution of high end bowstring materials.
A custom compound bow string can scream yellow or a bold red, and they can be a quiet, serious, woods matching brown and green. You pick what you want your bow to say and a set of a custom compound bow string helps you say it.
