    Hi. Just wondering how y'all string up a long bow with a stringer? I have several stringers for long bows and recurves and they all have nock pockets which go pretty far into the limb covering the nock string groove. I could move the pocket out just past the groove but don't confident about...

    Alrighty fellas, another stupid question from yours truly. What is a safer way to string my Montana longbow, a stringer or the push pull? I ask because my bow has really slim (but stacked) limbs, and my stringer has a really wide block that sits on the limb, which makes me feel a little uneasy...

He said that I should twist the string once per 3" of string length before stringing the bow. I've never heard this before and the bow seems to shoot fine without the twist, but I was...

    As i build these bows, I like to build the tips so a pocket stringer can be used. I recently built myself a nice little bow, and since I use the push/pull exclusively...on medium and lightweight bows...I made the tips dern near nonexistent... What do you guys like? Do you think its worth...

    Hi all, the other day I started to wonder if this method of stringing would be harmful to the bow itself. Potentially dangerous to the person performing the action, I know, but has worked for me for a couple of decades. The only real downside to it seems to be scratching the lower limb tip if...

    Hello! When stringing your recurve bow, should you alternate which end you start with first? Does it matter if you always place the string on the same side first?
