- Non-functional Review by Tak
Price Value Quality
I am stringing a SF forged+ with Medium length Axiom plus limbs. This stringer has deep pockets on both ends which makes it impossible to loop the string over the tip because the grooves and entire tip are hidden under the leather pocket. I am looking to get or make a replacement because this is not a tool that can string my bow.

- Challenging to use Review by Nate Burd
Value Quality Price
My first bow stringer so I didn't know what to look for. This stringer has equal size leather pockets making it challenging to get the string around the string notches at the end. As the other reviewer stated, it is possible to use the thumb to keep the leather pocket from covering the notch- but as tension is increased even the thumb is barely enough to get the string on the notch. Also, this has to be done with one hand (as the other is holding the bow in the middle), so the user has to try to keep the thumb pushing up on the pocket and then use other fingers to push the string up. But this thumb method isn't ideal as keeping the leather pocket from fully wrapping around the end creates torque on the very end of the bow at the notch. I recommend getting one after doing some research. Make sure that if the bow stringer has pockets, that they are unequal in depth and size.

- You needn't pay any more Review by Patrick SW
Quality Price Value
This is a great value bow stringer. The leather pockets and cord seem fit to last for years. The ends of the cordage on mine are a touch sharp where it's been melted to prevent fraying but that should be easily fixable with a lighter. This might seem a no-brainer but I initially had trouble using this as I didn't realise that I needed to put my thumb near the string notch on the upper limb to prevent the pocket from covering it while bringing the limbs up to tension, once I realised that I haven't had any issues using it.
