I use 4 strands of B90 on my 40# fiberglass.(I could use just two but
it's hard to work with)
Instead of serving, I twine in a number of extra strands in the nocking
and drawing area to bring it up to thickness.
On my linen strings I found that serving hid the imminent failure of the
string. With added strands, the string lasts longer and when it's on
it's way to failure I can _see_ it.
