    Did you say 3 years old, or 30? When I was a kid, they were top of the line. I havent heard anything about them in the last twenty years though. I would think Southtown or Outdoor America could replace the strings.

    That is at least a 12 year old bow. Might find strings at the antique store. Just kidding.

    I'm sure any bow shop can take the measurements and get you some strings ordered.

    Also, Am I seeing things or is the quiver upside down?

    I am not an optometrist but I would say yours eyes are just fine.

    I think it's just laying on the bow though.

    I hate to say it but getting a custom string on that bow may be a waste of money. You will likely drop $100 on string and installation. For $100 you could buy a much newer bow. That thing has to be 15-20 years old. Not intended as an insult just something to think about

    When i first thought about bow hunting i was given a High Country Supreme. I put about 200 in it to get it hunt ready.
    No matter how old the bow it will get you in the woods and kill deer.

    I have a 2010 high country iron mace and I would take it to the woods before my bow tech anyday!! In my opinion high country bows are good. I'm still a bow tech fan but this thing surprised me!

    i took it to a bow shop and i was told that it is about 15 years old haha i was way off ... good news i only payed $80 for the bow and it does not need new strings just needed string wax ... the guys at Southtown Sporting Goods saved me a lot of money they were honest and told me nothing was wrong with the bow i spent $3 dollars for a tube of bow string wax and a lot of knowledge about bows and equipment ... im new to archery and i have to start somewhere

    I shoot an Iron Mace just like triton does. It will SLING an arrow at blazing speeds and is tough as nails.
