What's the breaking strength of this stuff?
The reason I want to know:
I want to make the lightest _safe_ string of this stuff that I can. I'll
happily add in strands in the nocking area to bring it up to nock
thickness and improve shooting comfort, but for the rest of the string
I'd like to keep it's strength down to 4 times the bow-weight.
