    String Storage

    How do you store your strings so that they don't get tangled or damaged?

    I don't mean the ones that you use day-to-day - I mean the ones that came out slightly the wrong size, or are for a bow that you don't have any more, or are a bit scruffy and you replaced. And of course you can't throw away 'just in case'.

    Or is it just me?

    A long time ago I was advised by an International archer to connect the two ends with a safety pin then coil the string so that there are no folds. Simply put the string into a zip-loc bag (about 8" x 5") and store wherever. This makes it easy to put back on the bow and keeps the twists. I also apply a bit of white leccy tape to the safety pin which I write the string details on. I've been doing it this way for about fifteen years and it works.

    One way might be to hang them from a thin bar across the end of a plastic pipe, so they hang inside inside. Caps on each end to stop them drying out.

    I assumed from the way many archers like to put strings in plastic bags that drying out might be an issue.
    If the bag is for other reasons like keeping clean or putting off mice... a plastic pipe would help.
