      M'Lord Evrard,

      In latin I would suggest, "Peto ad hostis, et non abero!"

      ((I aim at the enemy and I don't miss))

      YIS

      > All I do is make endless loop bowstrings sized for crossbow prods. Typically for lighter poundage bows the strings are 32 strands and heavier (100 # +) are 42. I use Dacron B-50 for the string material. From Aleksei Zateev I discovered the secret to making the strings last: artificial sinew on the endloop servings. Instead of just winding it on you make a knot every turn, making sure it's tight every time. Also, there is a .30 thickness serving string especially made for crossbow strings that is resin coated. Recently the best prices for this is on ebay at 14.99 a spool.

      > For war. You want a prod around 75# or so. This depends on the amount of draw you have when the prod is strung and at rest. You times the poundage by the number of inches of draw to get your actual amount. Now for prods.... I have been purchasing the prods I use from  http://www.alcheminc.com/crossbow.html%c2%a0. It can take some time to get too you depending on any number of things.
