    I would like to learn how to make my own bow strings. What brands of material is recommended? Any brands that should be avoided? What guides have served you well when learning how to make strings on your own and teaching you about the materials? Anything from books to PDFs to videos...

    Still pretty new to this, and I'd like to buy a new string for my bow. It's a Jeffery Archery Royal hunter takedown that's around 20 years old. I've attached pictures of the front and back of the limbs. Can this bow handle the fast flight strings like the D97? Thanks in advance.

    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...

    So I see string recommendations here are mostly guys doing primarily trad hunting stuff. But if you are into WA bare bow competition stuff, where are you going for strings? I've heard 60x but are there small custom builders doing this kind of thing?

    I ordered 2 strings from Allen a couple of weeks ago; one for me and one for my 5 year old's new bow that I got him for Christmas. The timing couldn't have been more perfect as the strings arrived on Christmas Eve, giving me enough time to put it on Evan's little Samick longbow. Only thing...

    I have an Ali Mongolian bow and the string is a double-loop Dacron. I want to make a twist string for it probably from B50. I emailed Ali about using BC97 but no response so I don't know if twist-strings are used on these bows and if fast-flite is OK. I just bought a Bear Paw Horseman and made a...

    Having read several times the difference between non stretch strings seldom varies by more than 3-4 fps. You guys that have shot them a chronograph is that a fairly accurate rule of thumb? Jeffs post last week about strings got me to thinking about what would the difference be between an 8125g...

    First off, what I'm about to say may cause some people to feel that maybe the cheese has slid off my cracker. As you all know, I've been shooting that 66" Whip longbow. I ordered a replacement string since the ones Dan sends are not the greatest. I got the 8 strand model, and stuck it on my...

    Just picked up a new set of max 4 from breathn. They are longs and 49lbs. Put them on a 19" riser with a new mountain muffler mercury string. Tuned it a bit and was very happy. They felt great and seemed to be fast. So on to the chrono. First shot with 680g arrow at my 28.75" DL and ...

    Does anyone else buy strings from ol-nobull on ebay? Ive bought several and have nothing but good to say about his service. I usually receive them within 5 days after ordering. He's worth a look.

    Just recently (maybe a week ago) a member here asked about strings for a Border CH to which our member Breathn here (John's Customs) promptly responded where he had tried 8125, 8190 and Fast Flight Plus where of the 3?...He liked the FF+ string material best and with that?... I promptly PM'ed...
