      I have ordered 4 of them and all of the B50 dacron strings have come in all
      black. Great strings. Usually had to adjust my brace height after about 100
      shots. Break in time is minimal. I do recommend waxing the string on a
      regular basis.

  • Q:

    I don't know the draw weight on my bow. Would it be bad to get a 16 strand, which is made for up to 70#, if I end up pulling less than 50 when I finish my bow?

      A:

      Dacron B-50 is rated @ 50# per strand so 14 would be a good plenty either way. Moreover, 14 strands is a much better fit for "most" nocks as well as producing optimum speed from your bow.

  • Q:

    Hi, I currently own a Hickory longbow. I bought it some years back and used it with the original string for about a year. I just decided to get back into shooting and I took the bow out and realized that the specifications for string length and poundage have worn off... I know the bow was somewhere between 32 and 38 pounds and is 70 inches long (I just measured the bow with a tape measure). I'm not sure what string length I should get though. My guess is the 14 strand between 66 and 68 inches. Any thoughts?

      A:

      Dear fellow archer,
      It is best to check with the customer service department of 3Rivers Archery regarding types of bowstrings and the colors offered for different models. To my knowledge, Dacron strings usually are offered in either white or black. If you want another color that is not offered then perhaps you would enjoy making your own strings. String jigs and instruction manuals are available from 3 Rivers Archery and other outlets.
      I hope that I was of some help.

  • Q:

    I recently got a Ferguson 65" Long bow the owner had custom built.He then never shot it but very few times. I got it for a great price. I used to hunt with a compound bow long ago. I would like to string this up, get some arrows and set some targets and practice. I see the writing on the bow but have to admit, I don't understand the significance. Can someone "translate" for an old fart? And what would be the best string (size, stand, length,etc?) For me to buy. The bow has written on it 65" 42#@26with a amo 64. Information on arrows and the need for an arm protector? Call me noob at 54.

      A:

      Welcome to the fold! AMO, in short, is Archery Manufactures Organization which was formed to standardize bow lengths, string length and pounds of pull @ a particular draw length. In your case a 64" bow w/ 42# of pull @ 26" draw length. Most manufactures build bows to + 2 1/2 # of stated weight; and, rule of thumb (if you don't have a Viking scale or similar to know for sure) is + 2 1/2 # for each inch over/under the stated draw length. Your 64" AMO bow should take a 60" string as the standard is bow length - 4".
      I use Dacron B50 as string material and have forever. Some of the newer materials being used in modern traditional bows can handle fast-flight, which my old bows cannot. If you choose to use Dacron B50, 14 strands is a good plenty. If you pull 26" and are @ 42#, you could get by w/12 strands but I'm not sure how well you could get your nocs to fit on the serving. Dacron B50 is a 50# per strand string so either way is overkill, but you don't want your noc slipping around on you either. Use an arm guard. It'll save you from suffering much pain in the warmer moths and also keeps clothing clear of the string any other time.
      You may want to gather some information on "the archer's paradox" and "dynamic spine". Wikipedia has an explanation. I know youTube has some videos as well. In addition, I recommend you hang out at tradgang.com which has info for traditional archers at all levels of experience. And finally, 'The Traditional Bowhunter's Handbook' by T.J. Conrads, is an excellent book and required reading... if you want to shoot your traditional equipment well. Best wishes and I hope you have as much fun as I have had and continue to have shooting trad.

      A:

      For a normal bow i would recommended 62" string (with 16 strand), but since it's custom build, 63" string should be better (sometimes AMO-data isn't accurate). Remember to twist the string clockwise 10-15 turns (or less, if required). More twists will get more draw power. Arrow placement in the string will be determed with other items (like items 6907 and 4151X). Arrow lenght is your draw lenght+1-2 inches (for me it's 27 "). Arm protection is for you to diside. I hope that this was helpful.

      I would recommend a B-50 Flemish string. For longbows, we recommend 3" shorter than the AMO, so a 61" string should be the correct string.

  • Q:

    I bought a Samick Sage 30 pound recurve bow. It came with a black bow string, but I'm not sure if it is the B-50 Dacron. It has 16 strands.
    My question is; will a 16 strand bowstring damage my 30 pound recurve bow? The bowstring came with the bow, so i assume it is the correct bowstring. Correct me if I'm wrong. Thank You.

      Not a expert but I would have no worries , Just wax it well and when you
      have to replace it do so with a fast flight string.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      I'm not a FastFlight guy so if that is what you have... see ya! However, I kinda know Dacron B50, soooooo... 16 strands of it won't hurt your bow but it will sure slow it down. That is more in line with 60+ lb bows. I use a 14 strand on all my 50# bows and on one 52" 40 lb as well. You could easily get by w/ 12 strands pulling 30. May have to heat up your nocs and pinch them a bit to fit a 10 properly but hey, should be heating them and adjusting them to fit the serving anyway.
      The Dacron B50 has a tinsel strength of like 50# per strand so it's all overkill in that respect, but start out with the correct string and you'll find matching arrows and tuning your equipment for optimal performance much easier and a whole lot more fun. Hope this helped.

      16 strand should not damage your bow, but 14 strand would fit better for your bow on a long run. Just check the bow's AMO lenght.

      A 16 strand bow string should not hurt your bow.  14 stand would be strong enough if you were to purchase a new string.

      If your bow's AMO is for example 64", you should use 16 strand and 60" lenght bow string for over 50 pounds bow. For under 50 pounds, use 14 strand string.

      A:

      Measure the length of your bow tip-to-tip along the curve of the limbs across the back. This is what used to be known as the AMO length. Subtract 4" from the AMO length to get the suggested string length.
      I use Dacron B50 as a string material and have my strings made 1" long so I have flexibility in adjusting my brace height when tuning. Dacron B50 does stretch some so "shooting in the string" is required. May I suggest T.J. Conrad's 'The Traditional Bowhunter's Handbook'. Loaded w/information for us Trads. Hope this helps.

      For a recurve typically you will want to deduct 4'' off the amo length of the bow. If you would like to give us a call in here at 866-587-9501 we can help you further.
