  • Q:

    I have a longbow of # 40 is really the arc power increases at # 5 if you use a Flemish string?

      A:

      No, not with the B-50 Flemish. Some of the fast flight flemish strings you will game more speed, but you have to make sure your bow is made for fast flight as it's possible to cause damage to the bow otherwise.

      A:

      No but the arrow will pick up more speed with a flemish string.

      A:

      Most recurve's are 4 inches, however Martin is 3 inches shorter than the bow length

      A:

      Doesn't really matter. Twisting or un-twisting the string can easily give
      or take an inch or two of length. While I respect the info 3 Rivers gives
      on this, I'd differ to the manufacturers advise and go with 3" shorter.

      It does matter yes, but in this case I would go with the manufacturers
      recommendations.

      A:

      I have two Martin Jaguar recurve bows. A 40 lb and a 50 lb. I shoot the 40 a lot and practice with the 50 for hunting. I can attest- the 50 will  send an arrow through a wild hog with authority. I am still using the original strings on these bows as they are still good. I will replace them with a B-50 Flemish twist string. The reason is because the B-50 is inexpensive is very durable and easy to adjust for proper brace height.
      According to the spects for the jaguar from Martin Archery Your AMA is 60 inches and the brace height is 7 inches. This means that a 56 inch B-50 Flemish twist is right for your bow. I use Gold Tip 3555 carbon arrow as this shoots best in my Jaguars. The arrows that came with my bows were stiffer spined and did not preform all that well. I switched to a 3555 and it all came together for me.
      Three rivers archery says use a 4 inch shorter string as a rule on recurves. However an article titled "measuring bow strings the right way" on the internet says 3 inches is the rule for recurves. Check with a real traditional archery shop or contact three rivers archery for more information. happy shooting

      Use 4 inch shorter B50 because if you use a fast flight the bow will cut into the string

  • Q:

    What does "AMO" mean? ON my recurve is stamped 62". But makes no mention of "AMO". Do I purchase a 62" string or do I deduct 4" and order a 58" string?
    Asked on 1/21/2014 by Stick from New Mexico

      A:

      AMO stands for archery manufacturers organization. It just means the length of the bow. You are correct, you should subtract 4" off of that for the correct string length for a recurve. If it's a longbow, you subtract 3".

      A:

      AMO stands for Archery Manufactures Organization

      It would be best to measure the length of your bow to be sure. To measure the bow, it must be unstrung and measure from string groove to string groove following the curves of the bow. Then deduct 4" for a recurve or 3" for a longbow. So if it measures 62" as a recurve, you would order a 58" string.

      A:

      I use Tex-Tite brand wax and I apply it when I notice the string starting
      to have a frayed look to it. I just rub it on and then use my fingers to
      work it in back and fourth building heat to get the wax penetrating the
      string. Some people use a piece of leather for the same purpose.

      Generally, I wax the string before use. I use bee's wax but there's a
      specialized brand of sting wax that is sold. I have never used it though,
      so I couldn't say what the benefits of it are.

      A:

      You can buy string wax, and it works. But I use Bee's wax . Yes the stuff at the hardware store in the pluming section. It penetrates deeper, and is water prof . Also Bee's wax will never spoil. Hope this helps.

      Nope, they work just fine. Will stretch a little when you first start to shoot. Nothing to worry about. I have 5 of them that are on 25, 40,50, 55 and 60 pound recurve bows. I like them.

      The B-50 is a Dacron material, so it is safe to use on all bows.

      Good Morning.
      I actually use the B-50 Flemish string on my daughter's 1966 Black Bear
      recurve. For about 6 months now and haven't had any issues. For a 35 pound
      draw it shots fairly nice and not a lot of bow / string noise. I also use
      this same string on my 50 pound Super Grizzly I just bought this year for
      the upcoming whitetail season. I order these strings about 4 inches shorter
      than the bow's AMO length.
      The expert's at 3 Rivers Archery should be a very helpful source of
      information.

      I use this on my pse recurve the last3 years works great.
      What I like about this string is when it stretches you can just give it a couple of twists and its good as new. Just keep it waxed and it will last you a long time.
