We're very fortunate to have several great craftsmen on this site. Rick Barbee is highly recommended and I've personally used both D_Merrill and Champion Custom Strings(Chad) on several occasions. Both have delivered a great string, good turnaround, and excellent customer service...
I tried him out because I wanted to experiment with 8190 string, and not everybody offers it, or if they do they charge $35 or more while Extreme charges $25. Ron responds fast to queries, will build string any way you ask, ships priority mail, and so far every string has made it to me within 5 days of ordering.
I have dealt with 60 X on other items.With very good customer service., and at a fair price.
So I though I would just call him. And check on a recurve string, out of fast .
Just got off the phone. And here is what was related to me. 18 strand black recurve bow string . For $13.00. They have other colors selections. And will make them to your specification's Turn around time 3 days.
Now I was also told. The bow strings type and prices. Are going up on his web sight today and tomorrow. [ Later
