We will either need your old string or your riser and limbs and one arrow to take measurements for your new string. We can advise on strand count and serving size. Please arrange with our Equipment Manager, Alistair ( for your measurements to take place. All measurements are done at the Archers of Zoo Lake archery range.  Colour options can be decided during the measurement time as our full range of colour options will be available to choose from. Once measurements and colours are confirmed, the string will take a maximum for 5 working days to complete. You will be invoiced once the string is ready and can arrange collection with Alistair ( after the invoice is paid in full.
