I've used this string on longbows, recurves and reflex-deflex bows. The serving tends to stretch a bit on the kinds of bows where it impacts with the limbs (Recurves, & reflex-deflex). The string doesn't stand up to fraying very well, either so if a string starts to fray, it goes pretty quickly. On the other hand it is relatively durable and doesn't fray easily. For long bows, it's an excellent product and will last the longest. Despite the serving wear issue, it's lasted longer on my recurve than the string that originally came with it. Overall a decent product.

I had real issues with this string, the bow is a 60" Kodiak Hunter, so I got a 56" string, when I strung it up, the brace height was under 6 inches!I twisted it up to 7, but it would not stay there, which definitely hindered any kind of accuracy,since the nock point kept getting moved.I bought a 60" AMO string from a competitor,and it braced up at 7.5 inches without twisting it, and it shoots perfect. I have thought about returning the string, but the shipping costs are prohibitive of the effort. Why don't you use the AMO Rating for string length? It would save a lot of confusion for those who don't know the 4 inch rule. Kevin

        I believe the string is fine except the serving at the bottom loop unravelled after several sessions. I put some glue on it and so far so good. Probably not purchase again.

            Had for two weeks thus far. Will not settle. Streched a ton on first outing and has continued to stretch uncontrollably since. Already had to replace serving as it wqas slipping from day 1. Already have a broken string strand as well.

            Comments about Double Loop B-50 Dacron Endless Bow String:

            The bowstring on my 62" recurve measured 58" loop to loop. When I ordered this one I purchased a 58" when I read the description that it would streach "a bit". The sting is very well made but after I installed it the string streched over 1 1/4 inches after it was shot in. I had to twist the string much more than I am comfortable with to get it up to my 8 1/2" brace. Next time I will get a 57" string.

                        Comments about Double Loop B-50 Dacron Endless Bow String:

                        After a long lay off from archery I decided to get back into it.

                        Read all the information ref: bow strings and the D-50 was the proper string for my bow, a recurve.

                        Put the string on. So far so good. Left the bow strung for about 3-4 days.

                        Went to shoot it and found the string had stretched about 3 1/2 inches. Brace height was way under. Arrow fletching was hitting the arrow shelf.

                        Found out you can`t leave your bow stringed for any length of time. certainly not several days.

                        My fault entirely. Had to re-order a new string. Lesson learned.
                        Wish the tech would have said something to that effect. Would have saved me some $$$$$.
