The Headhunter Difference

Headhunter Bow Strings has been making cables and strings for bows and crossbows for over 30 years. We opened our first facility in 1991 in the town of Meeker, Colorado. In 2011, we opened our second facility in Milton, Wisconsin to accommodate the rapidly growing company. Having produced over 15 million bow strings, we are the world’s largest bow string manufacturer. With our state of the art production equipment we produce strings and cables for the horizontal and vertical bow market. It is our singular focus, and we do it better than anyone else. This isn’t just us patting ourselves on the back. Headhunter strings are tested by the bow and crossbow manufacturers over a million times every year! They test everyone’s strings but they buy from us because their rigorous testing by their engineers proves that Headhunter strings are the best. We are committed to providing world class products that will optimize the performance of your bow.


Headhunter Bow Strings assures that every string and cable you receive will meet your demanding specifications. Our strings are built with state of the art technology which we personally designed and engineered based on our 30+ years of experience. This equipment enables us to provide strings and cables at exceptional quality levels, quickly, efficiently and consistently. We utilize lean six sigma and poka yoke practices to prevent potential quality issues. There is no one best bowstring material or design. We work with the OEM’s to determine the best strand counts, string and serving materials and lengths to optimize the performance of every unique model. And then we build every string to that tested and proven factory spec to guarantee that our strings and cables will work flawlessly on your product.

Our customers choose to partner with Headhunter because they know they are getting the highest quality strings, utilizing the best materials, and state of the art manufacturing processes available today.

More than just a pretty color

We are not simply a custom string and cable maker that can provide you with pretty colors. In fact we do NOT make any custom colors. We only manufacture exact factory specified strings and cables to ensure optimal bow performance as proven by the testing the OEM’s did during the design of those bows. Utilizing Solidworks, Headhunter works with the bow manufacturers engineers to incorporate loops and servings that custom fit the cams to extend shooting life. We partner with OEM’s and supply their high-volume production needs. We produce millions of strings and cables a year and have the capacity and inventory to meet 100% of your string and cable requirements. If you are a bow manufacturer, why use your cash to carry string and cable inventory when Headhunter will do it for you? Let us manage your inventory through our JIT (just in time delivery) or VMI (vendor managed inventory) programs. If you are a dealer, why carry any replacement string inventory at all when Headhunter has over 40,000 finished units available? Spend your time and resources focusing on your business and let Headhunter Bow Strings take care of all your string and cable needs.
