My background comes from shooting high letoff compound bows with fingers for 3D tourneys. Trial and error is our greatest teacher. Back then, I would have never shot a braided string serveing. They were much, much more durable, yet the mono was slick. Holding a mere 10 to 12 lbs at full draw and getting a clean release is hard to master. But now , I am wondering why I would view it any different with a recurve. Every string I have has a braid serving????. Does anyone else shoot a mono serveing for this reason? I started to reserve a string or two this week... but then I figured why bother with 20+ year old serving.
