    Well, there are a lot of new materials that have come to market(and gone) since I quit paying attention a decade or so ago. The last strings I ordered were made from the “new” TS1 and 8125 from Rod Jenkins. While 8125 is obviously still with us, albeit now with “Gore fibers,” TS1 has gone the...

    I bought a Fleetwood Edge 35 pound recurve to learn and practice with while I wait for my BW. The bow is FF compatible according to the manufacturer. It came with an untwisted endless loop string and I VERY rarely caught my forearm with it when I shot. I learned how to build Flemish strings...

    I make my own skinny flemish strings. I use 450 plus. I bought a bunch of spools a while back of Ultra-Cam to give a try. I have 5 new spools I don't want to let go to waste. Does anyone know of the breaking strength of Ultra-cam? Thanks Gil

    Due to injuries I have been away from archery for a while. I make own skinny strings. When I was making strings 450+, 8125 and ultra cam were what people were using. I personally use 450+ but have 8125 and ultra cam. Is there another material out there now. I see that the string manufacturers...

    Hello, Would there be any noticeable differences between using a new Fast Flight Plus flemish twist string compared to the same string made with the D 97 material ?

    So its been a while since I've been around here...but I'm doing this on the recommendation of a new friend. How many people would be interested in seeing some new materials being offered in the Bear Custom Kodiak Take down? For example, maybe Phenolic, G10, fancy woods etc. Last year I proved...

    Hi everybody, My hubby is going to buy a Manchu replica bow and needs new arrows to go with it. For this particular bow a minimum weight of 12-15 grains per pound is recommended. His draw length has grown to 35-36 inches and the bow will be 45 pounds. We want to make our own arrows. Bamboo...

    Not wanting to hijack Beleg's 8190 thread where it was mentioned that D97 made for a noisy string, I am curious as to what you consider the quietest material and how you arrived at your conclusion. Thanks...Rob

    The following is from an article on fly rods, written by noted author John Gierach in the December '09/ January '10 issue of 'Fly Rod & Reel' magazine. Anybody think this is relevant to us archers? “As for rod materials, I once asked Lefty Kreh if the then-new boron rods really cast better...

    my bite tab is leather. thick, boot-sole leather. works pretty well, but it could be better. the grooves of release are not my bite grooves. i must continually realign them. i yearn for a material which does not hold imprints. any ideas for something 1/8-3-16" thick, which would be...

    i almost think this is a stupid question myself but i will ask anyway. Can you mix different string materials like dyneema 97 and bcy 452

    Has anyone ever broke down which risers that lend themselves to being warfed via stock removal, (milling/grinding/cutting on 'em), are cast from magnesium or from aluminum alloy?

    Excluding dacron and assuming the limb tips are FF capable, what are your favorite string materials? Also how many strands? Is there really any difference in similar materials from Brownells and BCY? For example 452X from BCY and Excel from Brownells.

    I will be ordering my first string material today. I plan on making endless loop strings. I plan on ordering D97 material, using a multifilament braid for the end servings, and Halo for the center serving. If I make 12 strand strings, what size center serving will I need to order for a...

    Since getting my DAS I've been poking around looking at various limbs. I read something the other day (and now can't find it again) regarding developement of W&W Inno Powerlimbs. They alluded to reworking the foam matrix using kevlar to give the limbs the best properties of wood cored limbs...

    Several people on this forum have indicated that FITA limbs are the best available- I am not debating this - I believe you - but do have a couple of observations and questions: 1) I have noticed that, although FITA limb manufacturers use high-tech materials, they seemed to have skipped...
