string question

Question:

Hello all.  I’m new to the group and haven’t seen a FAQ listing anywhere; so I hope this doesn’t bother any of you too much.  I have just purchased a nice older bow sans string.  I’m interested in making OR buying a few strings for this bow. I don’t know the draw height yet.  It’s a recurve; 45xx# 62".  Is this enough info to determine a good length for the string?  As this is an older bow, I’m interested in making a string with linen; what material should I use for serving the string? Thanxs in advance!! Chris

Be careful when shooting it for the first time, if it has any stress fractures etc, the first time you shoot, a limb could snap and take your nuts off… Im not sure about making a string out of linen, its not really my scene, but for an older bow I would suspect a fairly thick dacron string would be strong (and slow) enough to do the job. As for the length of said string, given the info Im not sure, I’d hazard a guess, the first 2 numbers indicate the draw weight [in inches], and the last two numbers indicate the bow length [in pounds]. I could be wrong, so use this advice at your own risk. Regards Ewan — Ewan Oughton [0143324] 2nd Year B.Sc. Comp. Sys. http://www.10xshot.com — Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free.

Response:

finished up at a measured 43#. The 62" is more than likely the AMO length of the bow; I’d put a tape measure to it to make sure. One thing that can be determined, is that bow is very likely 30-40 years old, and as such, I agree that it wouldn’t be the wisest thing in the world to string it up and shoot it. You are very correct; It may become discombobulated in a spectacular and possibly hazardous manner…

Making strings is fun but has it’s hazards.  Friend and I made a Kevlar string for his old Jennings.  Time involved was a 6 pack of beer. Unfortunately when we went in my yard to test it, he accidently dry-fired and the anchor on the bow’s cable broke! Fortunately there were 2 weeks til bow season and he got it fixed in time. For the matter at hand, I believe Dacron has lower modulus than linen and would be more forgiving.  Any serving material should do.  I believe my server has nylon in it. Frank

How does making strings and dry-firing connect? MA

They don’t but adds color to my comments.  Also going back to the incident, my friend’s bow may not have broken if the string was Dacron.  High modulus fibers such as Kevlar and Spectran are not recommended for bows built with lower modulus strings in mind. Frank

Better response than mine.  Also recall they were 16 ounce cans.  Clyde never could hold his liquor Frank

Response:

Yeah, I just wasn’t sure if the tapered winding might ad another variable if the taper falls in the sensing area. I guess that, at worst, you might have to adjust the signal level for any string that was affected.

I like both the DR Lo Riders and Sunbeams. I also like LaBella Slappers, but they have a taper core, and I don’t know if that’ll mess with a lightwave pickup in some way. They’re a little hard to find too.

Response:

Yeah, I just wasn’t sure if the tapered winding might ad another variable if the taper falls in the sensing area. I guess that, at worst, you might have to adjust the signal level for any string that was affected.
