      A:

      The rule of thumb would show that you need a 62" string. However, you may want to contact the manufacturer to be sure.

      A:

      For a longbow I think the rule of thumb is to go 3" shorter than the listed AMO/Bow length. Really you need to measure the brace height and if it is in acceptable range then use the same length string you already have. The string supplied with my recurve was too long (the string was the same length as the AMO on the bow) so the brace height was too short and would result in a very tender wrist. The string can be adjusted to a small extent by adding twists to shorten the string length or removing twists to lengthen it. I hope this helps.

      A:

      65" B-50 Flemish. If the bow has reinforced nocks and was made to handle Fast Flight Strings, you might want to look at those. Otherwise stay with the B-50 material.

  • Q:

    I have an old Ben Pearson longbow, the only markings other than"Ben Pearson" is "502-50" Now, overall length is 67 1/2" and nock to nock is 66" So, am I to assume a 63" 14-strand B-50 would be the string I need to order?

  • Q:

    I have a custom made bow with tip overlays. What is the loop size of the B-50 Flemish Twist Bow String?

      A:

      Hello. I make most of my strings for the longbow. I usually choose a 2 inch length to loop over and tie back into the string. This makes about a 1 inch loop. The strings I buy, that are Flemish twisted, measure about the same. If nocks are good and deep in the overlays, you should have leeway in loop length. My concern would be the number of strands used. Hope this helps. Recurve strings would have a longer loop, to accommodate the wider limbs when unstringing.

      Erik,
      I measured the loops of my new and not yet used B-50 Flemish String Recurve 15-Strand 46". One loop is approximately 5/8" inside diameter or approximately 1 1/8" long inside when pinched flat, the other loop is approximately 1 1/8" inside diameter or approximately 1 3/4" long inside when pinched flat.
      Hope this helps,
      Art

  • Q:

    I'm looking for a replacement string for a 66" #25 recurve bow. The man at SHEEL's said it looked to be about 64" but he wasn't sure. Is that the proper length? He said it was hard to tell because of the loops being on there.

    Thank you!

      The rule of thumb is 4" shorter than the AMO length for a recurve. For a 66" bow, that would be a 62" string.
