            Comments about BCY DynaFLIGHT 97 Bow String Material:

            In a word- Great! D97 is some kind of wonderful. I picked this up under the recommendation of my bowyer. I originally used a D97 string with my custom longbow, but ran into a minor string nock issue that cut through the loop on the upper limb end. No worries, I've got B-50 Dacron, so I made a replacement. What a world of difference! The B50 is reliable as a back up or for older bows, but the handshock and vibration of the B50 was immediately noticeable. I got online and went to 3Rivers the next day to place an order for some D97. The only thing about my order was that I ordered tan and red, and while the tan is a sweet dark tan color, the red, when bundled equally with the tan, looks more pink than red. No worries though. I took two bundles of 5 strands of tan, added a single strand of red to each and got busy twisting. Sweet looking results and definitely a pleasure to shoot with. Nearly zip for initial stretch, durability offering the peace of mind of going into the woods without a backup string, and plenty of zip for putting arrows where they need to go. If you're on the prowl to pick up some new bowstring material, give it a sho- you won't be disappointed.

            3Rivers is as always, consistent, accurate and better than on time as far as I'm concerned. Thanks!!

            Comments about BCY DynaFLIGHT 97 Bow String Material:

            You really can't go wrong with this stuff. I'm a recreational archer and hunter and mostly shoot longbows and glass bows I've built myself. I use D97 mostly in a 14-16 strand flemish twist configuration and I get a good string with VERY little creep and a smooth break-in period. I normally just shoot the string 50 times and my string is a stretched as it's going to be then I serve it up and put a nock-point on and I'm good.

              Comments about BCY DynaFLIGHT 97 Bow String Material:

              Tried my hand at stringmaking, just for fun and to save some money. After a few youtube videos, I made my first d97 flemish twist string, and I gotta say, it turned out great! And it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Plus, it was fun! I bought the tan and black spools. Saves me money and I can customize the strand count. Will never buy a pre-made string again!

              I have a 55# recurve with b50 dacron, and a 50# longbow with the D97. The lighter longbow now shoots arrows about 2 to 4 feet per second faster than the recurve!

              Service and delivery comments:

              As always, 3Rivers always delivers my orders faster than I expected.

                      A friend pointed me to the D97 for my first try at flemish twist strings. Nailed the second string with no problems at all. Love working with it, it has just the right amount of wax and doesn't fuzz up like some strings do.

                      I do wish that 3 Rivers carried it in 1/4 pound rolls though.

                      Can't wait to twist another one up for the fall Moose shoot !!!!

                        Comments about BCY DynaFLIGHT 97 Bow String Material:

                        Have used D97 for a while now and must say that -to me- it is one of the best string materials out there...definitely the most durable I have used to date. Reasonably quiet. Very little stretch.
                        I shoot a lot. About 250-300 arrows in a practise session. On vacation my serving came undone and I managed to fixate with a bit of knotting and superglue, however, the string itself was left exposed and survived 5 of these sessions striking my armguard without giving in.
                        This is a 10 strand flemish string by the way !
                        A bit of fraying that did get scary at the end, but it held. Good stuff !

                        Have switched to 452X in the meantime, which is more quiet, but continue to carry a spare of this.
                        Just in case.

                        Every bow I make and send out has a D97 string. The material is great for all uses..Wish they hadn't gone by the way of all suppliers and made things smaller for more $....But, these strings last a long time and I almost never carry a spare..
