  • Q:

    If a bow manufacturer states that their bow can accept high performance strings, does this mean any high performance string? For example, blackwidow bows use Fast flight. Can they accept FF plus or astroflight as well? or any of the other high performance string materials?

      A:

      Most bows that have their tips reinforced can shoot just about any of the more modern type string matl's. If in doubt I would call the manufacture and run it by them just to be safe.

    Can you tell me what the advantages, disadvantages, and simularities are for the following string materials?
    Fast Flight, BCY D97, BCY Dynaflight 10, BCY 450 plus, and the Brownell Astro Flight. Thanks for your insight.

      A:

      It has to do with the amount of stretch that they have and the overall strength of the individual strands. The less stretch that a string has the quicker it will stop oscillating after a shot. Fewer strands will also help to stop oscillation, and will require less energy to move. This will lead to better efficiency from the bow and slightly faster arrows.

  • Q:

    If the material is so strong, why does the information suggest 20 strands per string for traditional bows?

    • A:

      They are talking about ft/lbs. Take a 20lb bowling ball and put it on your foot; you can handle that. Now take the same bowling ball and drop it from 10ft on your foot. That's the difference and the reason for the recommendations.

      A:

      It is partly a safety measure and partly a performance measure. A thicker string is much less likely to break and will not go through the limb tips. And at 20 strands it is still smaller than an 18 strand fast flight.

      Answered on 5/16/2011 by Justin from 3Rivers Archery
    • A:

      I tried 20, which was way too thick, then 18. Went to Brownell's web site, where they said 16 for traditional strings, and it was too slow, and still too thick. Called Brownell, she said most are using 10 to 12 strands for recurves. Tried 10, but too thin for my nocks. Finally settled on 12, which was perfect for me. Kinda sounds like bears eating porridge. Took a while, but well worth the research. The best string I've ever shot.

  • Q:

    Can you mix this with Fast Flight plus material when making a multiple bundle string?
    Asked on 4/26/2011 by Jojo from Miami, FL

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      You could mix it with Fast Flight Plus. They have a different diameter which makes it difficult to get the correct size string.

  • Q:

    How does this compare with the Fast Flight material? FF adds 5-7# to your draw weight, what about this?
    Asked on 4/22/2011 by IneffableOne from Edmonds, WA

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      I do not know what you mean by 5#-7#. Fast Flight will typically give you an extra 5-7 fps depending on the weight of the bow. Astro Flight is a little better than FF. It is stronger. You can make strings with it that have the same strength as FF but, with fewer strands. Increasing string recovery and translating into a more efficient bow.

  • Q:

    Hi, I would like to change my FF plus 18 strands string on my hybrid longbow. How many strands I need using Astro Flight?
    Will be the weight and thickness of string similar or quite different?
    Asked on 3/20/2011 by Jan from Czech Republic

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The Astro flight is a stronger string with less stretch. If you wanted a string that was the same thickness, then you would use the same amount of strands. You cold drop down to 14 or 15 strands and still have the same strength as the current Fast Flight string that you are now using. That would give you a few more feet per second over your current string.

  • Q:

    Hi,
    if I make a continuous loop string out of this stuff for a recurve do I need to add strands to the loops. Or is 10 strands at the looops good?

      A:

      It is okay as you have it, but it would be quieter if you added a few extra strands on the loops.

    • A:

      Brownell recomends 16 strands for a flemish twist string,I'm not sure if that includes continuos loop I would probly stick with 16 strands
