I'm using D97. Usually 12 strand/3 bundle .19 Halo serving. Sometimes I lay an extra strand in the nock area of my serving to get the fit I like.

For my ILF recurve I use an endless string with 22 strands of 8190. End serving is 0.018" BCY 62xs . Center serving it 0.014" halo to fit a small groove "G" nock.

I have been playing around with the reasonable new BCY "X" material for both endless loop and flemish twist strings. I have been padding the loops with B50 or B55 and like the results, so far.

D97 is a decent material and I also have been using 8190 with good results. So far the "X" is on most of my bows, but still testing, durability, etc.

I use 12 strands of D97 and serve with cheap Brownells #4.I tie on 2 nock points.This fits my supernocks the way I like. Making 3 bundle strings has proven to make a nice round string easier for me.

I've used D97 with happiness, yet recently started using Astro Flight with similar happiness.

Astro Flight has a bit thinner strand than D97. I use Brownell #4 for serving over 16 strands of Astro Flight to get about the same nock fit as I do with #4 over 12-14 strands of D97.
