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.

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

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.

    Pros

    • Great String
    • Strong

    Cons

    • Too much Stretch
    • Wears Down Easily

    Best Uses

    • Longbows
    • Wooden Bows

    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.

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

      I've been making my own strings for nearly 25 years and this is the only string material I use for recurves and longbows. It's durable, easy to work with and forgiving. Once your preliminary stretching of the string is over, your golden. The shipping is fast (received order in 2 days) and the folks there are very helpful and knowledgeable.

                This was my first Flemish Twist String and it worked out perfect. Prewaxed... made it east to twist, with adding only a little extra wax. Set it to a good brace height and only had to adjust for stretch twice... about 12 extra twists, perfect.

                  Great product for traditional bow strings! Economical, I use this for anything from 25-60# bows, using 12-14 strands, depending on draw weight.
