Mike's Archery & Custom Bowstrings

Bow Strings and Cables

Back in 2008 I was at wit's end. The bow I was shooting was a great bow, but it wasn't built for power or shooting long distances. I did some searching and found a used bow online. When talking with the seller, he mentioned that the bow needed new strings and cables. He directed me to Mike Jensen of Mike's Archery & Custom Bowstrings LLC. I went home and looked up Mike's info.

Mike's Strings and Cables are made with only the best string material 452x. Tests have proven that it doesn't creep or stretch like all other string materials. Because there is no creep your bow stays in tune with zero cam rotation. Your bow stays rock solid! Consistent cast of arrow-flight. Same poundage, draw length, and same nock travel equals great arrow-flight or consistent arrow-flight! Less oscillating equals less noise!

  •     Problem #1 fixed! Your bow stays in tune! Zero Creep!
  •     Recommended strands: 20 for 70 pounds or less / 24 for 70 pounds or more
  •     Breaking strength: Approx ft/lb 8800

Note: 452x has the strongest breaking strength than any other material so I recommend 20 strands for max speed.

This all sounded good to me, so I had Mike make me up a new set of string and cables for my PSE Vengeance. I got to choose the colors I wanted and within two weeks I had my new set arrive in the mail. My pro-shop installed them for me and in no time I was flinging arrows. The strings were pre-stretched, but I still like shooting 200+ arrows before making any adjustments. After my 200 shots, I locked in the peep and was ready to rock-n-roll. The strings worked great! Two years later they are still holding up nicely as I wax them often and take good care of them. Earlier this year I purchased another used bow and even though it still had what seemed like good life to the strings and cables, I opted to replace them. I wanted to be sure of my gear and be confident that the components would last.
I am very happy with the strings and cables Mike has put together for me. I again got to choose whatever colors I wanted and the turnaround time was fast, too. The best part is the price. Mike puts together a great set of string and cables for $39.99. It's tough to find another company that'll do that for you. Having durable bow strings is essential for consistent shooting. I will definitely recommend Mike's Archery & Custom Bow Strings in the future.


Mike's strings

 Here's another acolade for Mike's strings. My sons have been using Mike's strings for over three years. They all shoot compound bows at indoor and outdoor target events. My oldest would routinely shoot an average of 200 arrows a day and a set of Mike's strings would last at least a year without any stretching (we only change them a month or so before Nationals). Mike has made it possible for us to experiment with many different bow, limb and cam combinations, plus growing draw lengths from growing kids, so we have ordered many, many sets of strings/cables and the quality is always excellent. My youngest earned the #1 spot in National JOAD this past year and I believe it is partly due to shooting a modified bow and having Mike make strings to perfectly match something that was totally off the charts (Hoyt Rintec/ XT3000 limbs / Cam 1/2 Plus).

Mikes Strings Rock!

I can too vouch for how good these strings are.  I sent mike the specs from my bow and within a couple of days, I had a brand new string waiting for me in the mailbox.  I took it to my local shop and it fit perfectly!  Mike saved me over $100 vs. what our local shop wanted to charge and I am so happy I went with his strings.  I would definitley reccomend these to anyone who wants a quality string for an outstanding value!  Mikes strings are a must!!!
