I have a X200 coming and i'm wondering if i can use low stretch strings on it? It has a B50 on it now...I prefer low stretch flemish strings... Thanks, Bob

I shoot low stretch on a 1968 Browning Nomad Stalker. It's all a personal choice, not someone else's choice to make for us. I go over my old bows first to make sure they have no cracks or other anomalies where the string attaches...smooth, symmetrical, etc. I've used it on a pretty fair number of older bows with no breaking, so that is just my experience.

If the bow is an earlier model; before you install a low-stretch string on the bow, first have a Catholic priest bless the bow.

I own and shoot several X200’s. A couple of them are older. I shoot the strings that black widow sells, whatever they are made of. I know it’s not Dacron because I always ask for FF. I have only had one to come apart and I honestly don’t think it was the string’ fault. I suspect a faulty glue line because it blew out at the riser and not the limb tip. All you can do is try it and see if it works for you.

2008 and later, yes.

On your bow? No. Made in 2004.
