After experimenting with some cheap Amazon products to see if I could actually make a string, I decided to try it with some real fit for purpose material. Maybe it's because I'm only a couple years into archery, but the difference was immense. So very stable with no creep, much more repeatable shots. I am shooting Barebow Recurve and ended up building a 20 strand with BCY 3D serving to fit my super3D nocks (still a touch loose, might try some .020 powergrip next to tighten it up). Excellent stability and an immediate improvement in scores when compared to the Dacron I used before. I'll be buying more of this when I run out.
As far as string material goes, is there any other manufacture for recurve. I like the way it twists up to for a nice round string. I also use Spectra 652. Still experimenting with both.
The string on my bow was old and of unknown material.
I made a string from this 8125, and the difference was night and day. Much snappier, and had no creep or stretch to speak of when I put it on my stretcher.
I used 14 strands and 0.020 polygrip to fit my Easton large groove nocks
All special orders are treated with priority. Outside of larger items such as bows, many special order items are on a consistent stocking basis. General turn around due to pandemic backorders is at least 8 weeks depending on manufacturer lead times.
Some bows such as custom target bows and top shelf traditional recurve bows are on a made to order basis directly from the manufacturer.
Some left handed products such as high end target equipment can also experience unforseen delays due to manufacturer batch production.
We make every effort to meet the deadlines set above. Sometimes due to issues out of our control we are unable to accomplish this. We will make every effort to remedy the situation if that is the case.
