FAQ

Where can I find out the string and cable length of my bow?

Based on your bow model, and the model year, you can find your string and cable lengths in our Documents and Manuals section.

What module do I need for my draw length and where do I set the let-off post?

Your draw length module is determined by the year and model of your bow. See our Documents and Manuals section.

Does my bow have a warranty?

All BowTech bows not sold over the internet come with a non-transferable lifetime warranty to the registered original owner. This warranty protects against any failures of the product due to defects in material or workmanship, and does not include any damage due to abuse, misuse or modifications to the bow's design. The following exclusions apply:

The BowTech Warranty covers product purchased from Authorized BowTech or Diamond Dealers (CLICK HERE for our Dealer Locator if you're on a computer, CLICK HERE for our Dealer Locator if you're on a mobile device). BowTech products purchased through the internet are not warrantied. Online purchases are only warrantied when purchased through an Authorized Dealer's e-commerce site, and will not be warrantied if purchased through auction sites such as eBay.

What is the warranty process?

Take your bow to your local dealer, preferably the dealer you purchased it from. If that dealer is not available, please take it to your next closest Authorized BowTech, Diamond or Stryker Dealer (CLICK HERE for our Dealer Locator if you're on a computer, CLICK HERE for our Dealer Locator if you're on a mobile device). At that point, the Dealer will contact our Parts and Service Department to determine together with our technicians if it is necessary to send the product back to the factory for further inspection, or if the issue can be easily resolved by sending parts directly to the Dealer. Your dealer will be able to relay all information to you regarding your warranty case.

What should I do if my string and cables need to be replaced?

Your local Authorized BowTech, Diamond or Stryker Dealer (CLICK HERE for our Dealer Locator if you're on a computer, CLICK HERE for our Dealer Locator if you're on a mobile device) should perform any maintenance that requires a bow press - this includes changing your string and cables.

What is the benefit of using BowTech factory made string and cables?

BowTech utilizes the most state of the art string making techniques in the compound bow industry. We pride ourselves in giving you the most technically advanced bows out there, right down to the string and cables. BowTech strings and cables go through a 6 point quality check off on each and every piece. All strings and cables are pre-stretched over a set period of time, and then stretched again while serving to maintain the set diameter. What does this mean to me, you ask? By maintaining the designed string and cable diameters and lengths, they will sit correctly in the cam tracks and you can rest assured that you will maintain all the speed and performance potential of your BowTech or Diamond bow.

Can I get custom colors if I use Octane factory strings?

Yes, BowTech offers most colors available from BCY. There may an additional charge for custom colors. Your local Authorized BowTech or Diamond Dealer (CLICK HERE for our Dealer Locatlor if you're on a computer, CLICK HERE for our Dealer Locator if you're on a mobile device) can talk with their sales representative about color availability and cost on custom color string and cables.

I heard about the quality of Octane factory string and cable sets, can I get them for bow models other than BowTech and Diamond?

Yes, BowTech can make string and cables for just about any model out there. Have your dealer ask their sales representative about cost and availability.

Can I use aftermarket string and cable sets on my BowTech or Diamond bow?

Many aftermarket string and cable(s) sets are only "close" on the lengths and diameters. This can drastically slow down, affect the performance, and significantly reduce the ease of tuning your bow. Use of aftermarket string and cable sets, and failure of that product resulting in further damage, will void the lifetime warranty of your bow.

How often should I change my strings and cables?

String and cable life is susceptible to a couple different factors. The first would be how much you shoot your bow, and second would be how well you take care of your strings. We recommend you regularly wax your string with a quality silicone based string wax. Most strings will last thousands of shots. As a pre-season practice, inspect your string for cuts, abrasions and fuzziness. These all can be signs that your string and cable(s) may need to be replaced. When in doubt, take your bow to your local Authorized BowTech, Diamond or Stryker Dealer (CLICK HERE for our Dealer Locator if you're on a computer, CLICK HERE for our Dealer Locator if you're on a mobile device) and they can assist you in getting new BowTech String and Cable(s) set on your bow, if needed.

I am registering my bow, but where is my serial number located?

Some models do not have a serial number. If your bow does have a serial number, it is located on the riser, just below the two arrow rest mounting holes (berger button holes).

Where is the centershot of my bow?

This can be set by measuring from the back of the riser to the arrow and then from the front of the riser to the arrow. Once this is equal, you are at the centershot of your bow. Keep in mind, not all bows tune at exact centershot due to the variances in arrow spine and your specific bow poundage. This is merely a starting point.

Where are BowTech and Diamond bows made?

BowTech and Diamond bows, along with Stryker Crossbows are manufactured and assembled in Eugene, Oregon

Are there any past models still available?

One of your favorite prior year model bows may be available for purchase. Your local (CLICK HERE for our Dealer Locator if you're on a computer, CLICK HERE for our Dealer Locator if you're on a mobile device) can contact their sales representative and check on availability and cost of any prior year models.

Can I get my bow built with a custom color combination?

Your local Authorized BowTech, Diamond or Stryker Dealer (CLICK HERE for our Dealer Locator if you're on a computer, CLICK HERE for our Dealer Locator if you're on a mobile device) can contact their sales representative and check the availability of a custom build. If available there may be a custom build charge applied. The sales representative can go over any applicable charges with your local Authorized BowTech Dealer.

How does the Edge / Razor Edge limb upgrade program work?

How can I track my order (both new bow orders and parts/warranty orders)?
