I was happy to see how much wax was already in the thread. As I made the string bundles this caused it to adhere to each other strand; then as I twisted them making flemish strings they went together very well. This is my first time making my own flemish strings; I promptly dragged all my old recurves out of the closet and made a new color coordinated string for each of them. They are starting to look great, and they really shoot well.

Since my sampling is small (4 colors in pound quantities), so, I cannot fully judge these materials, but I do notice significant differences in material diameters and degree of lubricant between different colors. The white was particularly thin with little lubricant. This may be deliberate to preserve the bright white color, but this makes a significant problem when making twisted bow strings.

                Overall the product works well. i bought 2 rolls. the hunter green roll would not hold together. either the wax was bad or it just would not stick to the dacron. makes it very hard to work with. threw it away as it would not take other wax either. maybe just a fluke.

                  Comments about Brownell B-50 Dacron Waxed Bow String Material:

                  I have been learning how to do bow stings and tried various stings. The b50 has good straight for what I would say light weight bows but not so good for compounds. Although it will work for compounds I found that it has lots of stretch of over ½ inch so it is hard to get the length correct. It is a quit string and seems to reduce vibration.
                  I will use this string for a compound that I use for practice but not for hunting as it can damage easily.
