Put 100+ arrows thru this thing and it's still stretching. Bought a 58" for my 62" longbow and brace keeps shrinking to under 7 inches. When will it stop? I hate to overtwist a string. Maybe should have bought a 57". When it's at the correct brace height this string shoots really nice, and quiet. Also had to wax the string ends a lot to keep the cut ends from fraying and lay flat against the string.

    Strings Great/ Shipping Expensive

      • Both Long And Recurve

      Comments about B-50 Flemish Twist Bow String:

      I ordered these as replacement strings for a vintage recurve I bought. After adjusting for stretch bow is shooting arrows about 10% faster which suprised me. Nice feel of traditional string. I also bought a string for a longbow I just made, works great, looks great on the traditional wood bow. Strings stretch a fair amount at first, not a big deal. Reliable shipping costs more than the strings. USPS shipping is not reliable to my address.

        Comments about B-50 Flemish Twist Bow String:

        I use this string on my LB although the same string of the correct length could also be used on a recurve.
        It isn't a "fast" string but then @ 20yds. I don't believe speed is that much of a deciding factor on game animals. I like the fact that with this 15 strand string I do not have to use "silencers" on the bow. Also IMO a Dacron string is much eaiser on the fingers.

          I like the colors of the string, I also like that the brace height stays consistant , but the thing I like most about this string is how quiet it is on my bow.

            Comments about B-50 Flemish Twist Bow String:

            Great fast accurate good price. I prefer B-50 even on bows that can take fast flight, they are quieter and I don't think the shock imparted on a bow by fast-flight materials is worth 5-7 fps.

            Service and delivery comments:

            I think for some stuff (like strings) the way 3 River's applies their shipping charges comes out too high but if you plan your purchase to conincide with a bigger more expensive product it evens out in the end, it's just that sometimes I just need a string or two and I pay almost the price of a third string in shipping.

                Comments about B-50 Flemish Twist Bow String:

                Just my personal view of it. First. Put it on to your bow to your preferred brace height (8 1/8 to 8 1/4 for me on my Grizzly). Put on your string nock. I use brass ones. Its going to STRETCH for a while. Check you brace height every 20 arrows or so and adjust it back to your optimal brace height as needed. The string will settle in eventually you just have to shoot it a while. I also add my own homemade string silencers to it. So quiet. Glides off the Dura Glove nicely.

                String arrived with heavy wax on it which I like. Adding silencers was a snap as the 2 bundles separate easily for placement.

                Comments about B-50 Flemish Twist Bow String:

                I got about 20 shots through it before my bow started acting funny. Upon inspection I found the string ends were slipping apart. Removed it before It came all the way apart. If it had stayed together it would be a nice product. It shot very solid at first.
