27069RE: [SCA-Archery] Re: string making
- Feb 7, 2010I've been making my own Flemish Strings for over a year now and I love it. I too, learned from 3 rivers but I never got the dvd. I just got a copy of the instructions from them. I've done both 2 and 3 color strings though the 3-color is only a little more difficult. I've even managed to make a Flemish twist for my crossbow. =) I love it and will probably never return to the endless loop unless I absolutely have to.

Subject: [SCA-Archery] Re: string makingYeah that DVD from 3 rivers archery is a very good video... it is all in the twist.
Spend some time learning on making the 3ply string. the plus to a 3 ply is that the string is a round string, and far better custom color options...
Bit of advice. Don't mix B-50 with Fastflite string... makes a weird string size. it almost like a D.
what do you use for your serving string.. the braided black and white fast flite or standard #4 nylon.
oh don't feel bad if a friend asks you to make a string for them, $10 each. and that is cheap.
And welcome to the quiet guild of string makers.
