        Comments about How to Build a Great Bowstring DVD:

        In learning how to make a bowstring this DVD was informative and tricks by the string maker were given with good explanation and view. Plans were provided for the viewer to make their own string board.
        The back drop and scenery lacked any creativity and did not help when the speaker was speaking and sounds were reflective. The twisting could have been shown a little better when being explained.

            I can now make more consistant bow strings without so much stringloss from experimentations. Several good pointers,too. I wish I had known of this DVD before I purchased 'Crafting Traditional Flemish Strings'. There is much more info including how to make the jig. Also good info on making 'Continuous Loop' strings and jigs.

              Great How-To! I built my first string jig and string after watching this DVD! Easy to understand and a good resource to review if you forget a step in the string building process. I've used and hunted with strings from Champion Custom Bowstrings! Getting the DVD was a no brainer for me.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Excellent as always! Thanks 3Rivers!

                Comments about How to Build a Great Bowstring DVD:

                This is a wonderful way to get started making Flemish or endless loop bow strings! Me and a friend of mine got string making stuff and this DVD and are now making good(I must emphasize good as it takes practice to great Flemish style strings)Flemish bow strings. We made a Flemish string jig from the instructions included at the end of this DVD,needless to say it works. Between the two of us we have already made four Flemish strings from fastflight string material. My main problem with this product is that some times I wish they would have zoomed in on some things, but this was not to often and I am not all that upset. I LOVE this DVD and I highly recommend it!

                  Comments about How to Build a Great Bowstring DVD:

                  This is a DVD to Watch as well as listen to. Lots of useful information presented in a down-home style by folks who obviously know what they are talking about.

                  The video is comfortably casual and, as such, will require a couple of viewings on each sector to get the full information contained. It is pretty much the only one you will need on the subject to get a fine start at making your own strings (although techniques do differ among various twisters and loopers)

                  Recommended for anyone looking to know how it's done.

                    Comments about How to Build a Great Bowstring DVD:

                    All my comments are related to the Flemish building section as I have been building my own endless loop strings for about 30 years and have not watched that section.

                    The specifics of loop padding, string twist, and the details could have been better illustrated by far with graphic examples. There is simply not enough detail in the key areas.I know the individual in the video knows how to build strings but I am betting he doesnt have any background in education. I would have hoped that I could build a flemish string after watching this video a few times but I had to consult some online resources
                    to make the process clear.

                    This could have been a great "How To" if it was clearer on detail.

                    service and delivery were good as is always the case with 3 Rivers

                      This is an excellent video of how to build a flemish string. I was building my first string within an hour of watching it twice. The experience of the instructor was very evident, and there were many "special tricks" presented that sure helped a novice get going successfully.
