XitWire Magnum

x-itwire-magnumDear Scott,

How are you? I’m fine and my outdoor season is going so good … I am doing the selections for the world field championship and at these moment I am in a good position. Two weeks ago I won the second leg of the Field Grand Prix and during this weekend I will have the last leg (obviously I will let you know). During the competitions I always receive some questions about the strings and I hope you had some feedback from Italian shooters.    After I tried the new X-itWire Magnum on my first bow I am having some difficulty with the setup of the second bow. I don’t know why but it seems to be less stable than the Magnum …. This is my last idea because the strings are the only difference between the bows. Maybe you can have some other idea …… Thanks a lot and have a nice day!

Best Regards
