You will need to wax the serving, otherwise you cut the life of the serving in half.
It's nice not to put anything on the string or rail because it stays clean. However, the serving will take some punishment.

No wax, the serving lasted about half as long as every 20 shots. Every 30 shots was about 10% less shots than every 20 shots. Every 10 shots was no improvement over every 20. So, I suggest every 20-25 shots.
Of course, on the lighter poundage bows, the differences would be less noticable because the servings last longer than on the Exomax I used for testing. No matter which bow or serving material you use . . .wax will improve the life of the serving. I promise it's worth the cost/effort.
I do the same thing with the alcohol I use for muzzleloading.I keep a spray bottle of 91% Alcohol for spit patches,that's what I clean the wax off my rail with,that or WD-40
