  • Q:

    I'm gonna be making flemish twist strings for my friends and myself. We all shoot different poundage 40, 45, and 50 pounds. How many strands do I need to use for each weight or are they all the same?

      A:

      The number of strands really does not have much to do with the
      poundage of the bow. The string can be anywhere from six strands to 14
      strands. For me personally it all has to do with the diameter of the
      serving. And what you use for serving material. I use 14 strands of
      material and serve with .030 serving which gives me a finished
      diameter of serving of .110 thousands which fits most knocks nicely.
      And will accommodate any bow from 35 pounds to 100. You also can
      double serve with .014 thousands nylon serving

      A:

      For Jarvis:
      This is a fine low-stretch and durable string material, but the type of bow you’re shooting, and your goal in using high performance strings make a big difference. First, we’ll assume you’ve confirmed that the bow tips are made for modern strings, otherwise you’d only consider B50. Also, that you don’t have more explicit instructions from your bows’ manufacturer.
      As far as strength: you don’t need many strands of FF+ to handle those bow weights. While many rules of thumb will suggest 12+, the result will be more like steel cable than bow string as far as the effect on the bow limbs is concerned. For wooden bows, in particular, over strength FF+ strings can result in limb breakage, as wood needs the the shock absorption that older strings provided. But by reducing the strand count to keep the overall strength close to B50, you can reduce the stress. Without more information, I’d suggest 8-10 strands to meet your draw weight range, if using 9-10 grain/# arrows. 9 strands (3x3) is probably the most efficient compromise to suit all. You’ll want to add more serving to fit arrow nocks and to pad the bow tips from abrasion and wear.
      Also: If you want reduce stretch, a flemish twist is less effective than a continuous loop, and the FF+ filaments are so thin that winding doesn’t reduce length very much so adjustment is more difficult. You’ll get less stretch and more consistent performance from a lightweight continuous loop string, if your bow can handle it. Not all can.

      There is no set rule as to how many strands you need. However, I would recommend a 3 bundle 18 strand which will work for all the bows listed.

      A:

      For target use, a continuous loop (for minimum stretch) with eight strands should be plenty strong, any more likely to put excess stress on tips and nocks. You don't mention bow style or construction; if using wood as I do, remember to pad loops with B50 or similar softer strands.

      Hi Donna
      This is Tony from White Wolf Archery. Through three Rivers archery I
      have received a question about fast flight plus string material from
      you. How many strands of fast flight plus is determined by what size
      serving you use. You want your finished product to have a serving size
      of approximately .110 thousands to fit most arrow knocks. I use 14
      strands if I use . .030 thousands serving. In I use 12 strands I
      double serve with .017 thousands serving. Both recipes will produce a
      serving of the proper size
      Hope some of this info helps take care

      A:

      14 strands should be more than enough. The smaller you go on strands though, the thicker you will need on serving material to make sure your arrow nocks hold.

  • Q:

    How many strands of fast flight should I use because with 12 or 14 my nock won't fit on. When I put more serving on it's to big and the nock barely comes off. And will adding more strands make the string a lot slower.

      A:

      The original Fast Flight used Spectra as the main ingredient. After Spectra started being used for other products, Brownell switched over to a Dyneema based string and renamed it Fast Flight Plus. They each have very similar performance and characteristics. I would not recommend putting the two together in one string.

      A:

      B-50 is a softer material that has more stretch to it. It is good for use on older and lower end bows that do not have reinforced limb tips. The Fast Flight is a high performance material. It will get you a few more feet per second. It should not be used on bows that do not have reinforced limb tips.
