Just made a string for my bow that will use 1916's with G nocks/unibushings. The string is two bundle 12 strand flemish D97. What serving size should I use? I have .24 but I know that is two large.

Also, is there anywhere that this info is listed with strand and serving combinations?

Thanks!

I use 26 on a 12 strand D-97 and is just about perfect fit for CE nocks and most others I have encountered. I use a long tag under the wind.

I've made 12 strand D97 strings served with Brownells #4 (.021) that fit my G nocks nicely. I don't know what the same diameter in a different serving material would do here, for I've noticed variations in nock fit between different servings with the same stats (could be the texture, lay, etc.). But the #4 does it for me.

Sam,
I use the .024 for Super Nocks and had no problem, I tried the same string on the G nocks and it was too tight.

Thin Man,
Thanks for the info on Brownell.

It seems I cannot find any place where this type of info is listed.

Rick, are you aware the G nocks also come in two throat sizes, .088 and .098?

As far as I know, you just have to experiment with nock type, strand count, and serving thickness to get the nock fit you are seeking. I don't know of any charts.
