I wax it about every 4 or 5 times i get it out of the case or when i think it needs done. For what part of the the string i wax i do the whole thing and quite liberaly, its not going to hurt it none.

Diamond archery reccomends waxing the entire string every other time you shoot and replacing the string every year or 2500 shots (which ever comes first).

You make me feel guilty. I had to break out the old, and I do mean old, wax.Does anyone remember the Bear Wax of the 80s? I usually do mine every 100 shots.
