Just take something thinner... and try.

I use monofilament nylon fishing line on the center serving. Then you can choose the nock fit very exact by changing diameter from 0,35 to 0,40 for example. For a 20 strand FF equivalent string, I use 0,45mm line. For 18 FF-ekv, I change to 0,50. Under 0,40mm of fishing line is not recommended, since it gets to weak.

I've also seen strings that are double served.

How exactly do they do that? Is it simply one full serving over the other? Separate? Or do you serve up and then down again, finishing where you started?

My newest string is double served only in the finger and nock contact area. The rest of the 8" or so are only single.

Here's my question to you guys. Which do you prefer? What other techniques have you seen? And for those do it yourselfers, how would you do it?
