    "I shoot like 2 arrows a year at animals and kill them so I’ll get like 10 years out of my string……….I replace my D-loop once or twice a year"

    So you replace the d loop after each of the 2 arrows you shoot per year….or you’re full of shit

    "I only take my bow out to kill a deer then put it back". Please keep these weekend warrior posers off the internet and giving people tips/hints. You don’t shoot enough to wear our a string in a bows lifetime! Furthermore its best to not wax a string at all. All you are doing is wearing it down further as your using wax and dirt to break it up further.

    I purchased a pro defiant, I had to chase the coating out of the Berger hole. Pisces me off a little, but lucky me I have a full set of tap and die, because I work metal as a hobby.

    Great video, but a couple of things need some clarification. First, those are called Torx bit drivers and not "stars". Second, that is a tap handle not a thread repair tool. Third, you should try to use a bottoming tap to chase any threads that may be fouled due to the manufacturing processes and not a spiral point tap because the spiral point will not reach all the way to the bottom of a blind hole if it is needed. Forth and possibly the most important thing, be absolutely sure of the screw thread you are trying to repair. A couple metric and standard threads are very close to one another until you get about three threads in and then you will cross cut, this will cause major problems and a big repair bill……. If you are unsure about threads let some who is do it and save yourself a big headache.

    I use their products everyday and second their quality!

    Who uses crimps on strings anymore!? Even for kisser buttons, just use serving.

  12. James28R on September 13, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    yeah you need a vice for a dloop.. course you do

    As far as your tap. Just using it in the same hole isn’t the proper way to use it. Also that doesn’t re thread the hole right. The proper way is to have the hole welded/filled. Then drilled out and re- taped. Depending how bad it is crossed threaded.

    First. Great vid

    Great video. Very informative, thank you for the information

    *I know that Matthews is a well-known brand of hunting bow. They did not skimp on the quality of this entry level bow either. It is an excellent design>>>****     which allows both my 10 year old son and my 6′ frame to shoot the same bow. It is really quite nice. The full kit adds a nice quiver, some arrows and an arm guard. My son has shot with this bow multiple times around the house and at practice. It works very well.*

    What is the brand of that vice?
