I have a 58" 55# Bear recurve. The string is starting to fray and needs to be replaced. I went to sportsmans and they did not have one. They told me to call a bow shop on the hillside and the bow shop told me to call a local custom Bow string maker. Is there a reason to buy a custom string? I have not checked but I assume that a custom string would cost more than one off of the shelf. Where else in anchorage should I check for a sting off the shelf?
