    How often should I wax my strings? I have a new Bowtech RPM 360, and I have been shooting 2-3 times a week. I am just unsure of how much I should be waxing my strings. Thanks for the help.

    Depends on how many arrows you're shooting each session. When the weather breaks, I'm shooting almost every day, at least a couple dozen a day, so I'm waxing them about once a week or so, but I don't freak out if I skip a week sometimes.

    ^This^ When I shoot a lot, wax it once every week. I don't freak out if I forget. I just do it when I think about it.

    As a professional string builder I can tell you its as simple as when the string looks fuzzy wax it! Till then shoot all you want.

    ^^^THIS^^^ Different string materials act differently too. Most people wax to often/much.

    This is what I was gonna say too. When it feels dry and looks fuzzy, wax it
