      A:

      I usually go with sixteen strands and it works to about 65 pounds. I don't make bows past that draw wieght because I will loose accuracy above that.

      A:

      Not sure of dia., but the B-55 is comparable to B-50 in size(B-55 has less
      creep and stretch than B-50). I use 12 strands with .21 serving and it fits
      all my arrow nocks just fine. 12 strands gives a breaking strength of 660
      lbs. which is plenty for my bows up to 65#.

      A:

      This is not as heavily eaced as some B50 I have used. I would puck up
      stringmakers wax or beeswax.

      A:

      Yes it is prewaxed like the B-50 and works really well and doesn't stretch
      near as much as the B-50

      A:

      It felt a little bit waxy when I got mine but adding some wax really helped in making a good Flemish twist

      A:

      I have the B55 and the B50, they are both pre-waxed and for the most part seem to be pretty much the same.

  • Q:

    What is the thickness of the bowstring material?
    Asked on 5/6/2013 by Al from Livonia, MI

      A:

      A number of folks would like to know the thickness or the diameter of a particular string material. According to BCY Fibers, "All bowstring material is relatively flat in a single strand, so it is not appropriate to publish a diameter of a single strand.The important issue is how
      many strands are required to give a satisfactory nock fit."
      BCY recommends 12 to 16 strands for a recurve to provide a proper nock fit.

      A:

      I make mine 12 strands with .025 serving for a good nock fit. You cant really measure the diameter because it is flat.
