      A:

      Yes any type of serving material and thickness may be used depending on the size of your nocks being used

      A:

      Yes, you want to select the serving so your center serving is the
      appropriate thickness for the nocks you use. The type is just personal
      preference. I like the Halo

  • Q:

    can I make a string using bundles of D97 and FF plus.

      A:

      I wouldn't--they are made of different materials and so have different tensile strengths, etc .The only time to use a different type of material is to pad the loops of a skinny string, usually with B50.

      A:

      It is not recommended to mix materials int he bundles. It is okay to pad
      the loops of a Flemish twist string with a different material. I generally
      use B50 dacron in my skinny D97 strings. The problem with mixing within the
      bundles is that you have materials of different diameters and that may
      creep at different rates. D97 and Fast Flight do not stretch, but all
      materials have a certain amount of creep. You will notice this when you put
      on a new string. After several shots, you will need to add some twists to
      the string. It did not stretch, but it did creep. Generally once a
      no-stretch string settles in it will no longer creep.
      Putting different materials together in the bundle will cause one to creep
      at a different rate, which means all the stress will be on one material,
      not a good idea.
      In short, don't mix them.

  • Q:

    what is the advantage or difference in the BCY D97 over B-50 Brownell spools ? what would you recommend as far as a 50# hoyt dorado recurve or wooden/no fiberglass backed longbow is concerned ?

      A:

      D97 is a high performance string material. The B-50 is an older string material that stretches more and is more forgiving on the bow. You bow has to be compatible with a high performance string material in order to use the D97. The B-50 is safe for all bows to use.

      A:

      B50 is for older bows that are not FF/D97 compatible. B50 is much slower, stretches a lot and you would be much better off using D97 for your Dorado. If you can us Fast flight string (FF) then you can use D97 and I would recommend D97 over FF any day for speed, quietness and low stretch.

  • Q:

    Your product description recommends 16 strands or less for recurves. What about longbows and why 16 strands or less. Many of my fastflight type bowstrings are 18 strand ( 6 per bundle). Is there a problem if I choose to make 18 strand 3 bundle strings ? How do I know how many strands to use when making the string ? I shoot 50 LBS on most of my recurve and longbows.

      A:

      It recommends 16 strands or less because over 16 strands starts slowing down your arrow speed. Fastflight is a smaller diameter string so it does not slow your arrow as much. 18 strand string is going to be very tight on your nock. This string can work down to 12 strands but i would recommend 14 strands with a .018 serving. If you decide to run a 3 bundle then you could make 15 strand string.

      FastFlight is thinner than D97. The recommendations are for nock fit, you'll need fewer strands of D97 to make the same diameter string. You can also use a thicker serving on the FF to accomodate your nock. I use 14 strands of D97 and twist two strands of B50/500 under the serving to fit my 11/32 Bohning nocks. I like a lighter nock fit, that's where you get the more speed and less noise.

      The recommendations are to accomodate nock fit. FF is thinner than D97 so you'll need fewer strands of D97 to get the same (approximately) fit as with the FF. I use 14 strands of D97 and twist 2 additional strands of B50/500 under my serving to get good fit for 11/32 Bohning nocks. I like a softer nock fit, that's where you get the more speed and less noise.
