Vapor Trail Bow Strings

Looking to get more performance from your current bow? Custom strings are a great way to achieve more durability, as well as increased accuracy and consistency, and better overall "no-stretch" performance...and some of the best we''ve seen hail from Minnesota-based VaporTrail Strings and Cables. Here owners Jarrod Fondie (left) and Steve Fondie have a playful game of tug of war using an enormous mock string made up of just a few of the company''s wide-ranging custom string colors. See all of those custom colors, and build your own "virtual string," by logging on to Vapor Trail Archery.
