Depends on how much you put your bow to work. If you shoot it daily or perhaps weekly I would recommend changing them each year. If you have old strings you may be surprised what new ones can do. Over the years of the strings being stretched you will loose draw weight and arrow speed. New strings can make an old bow new again. Make sure you get the highest quality strings you can, keep in mind a lot of people make strings, make sure they know what they are doing before you go with them.

Can't speak on the newer bows with the limb design BUT long stringing a bow INCREASES poundage and arrow speed. Short stringing will cause the opposite..the new bow strings today don't stretch like the old ones did.

Please explain^.
Yes longer draw length will increase speed, but longer length on a shorter cam will not as the limbs will be under less of a load.

Years back I know folks who would buy a 80lb bow that was 1-2" short then long string it and end up with a 90lb bow. This was about the time cams were starting to show up on bows, the bows most used for this was the Bear Whitetail and the Whitetail 2. With cams long or short stringing would lead to timing issues with a bow. You seldom hear of string stretching with todays strings, years back I would go thru 2-3 strings a year.
