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
