Compound String Information

Section 2) Traditional Strings:

1) Bow Type: Recurve or Longbow

The traditional bowstrings are of the endless loop design and prestretched at approximately 300lbs tension for a 24 hour period.

2) Length of Bow/String

The above information may be found on the bow limbs as seen in the photo to the right. The photo states a bow length of 66 inches.

If the bow length is not legible the string can be removed and measured using the following method: 

Remove the string from the bow being careful to not add or remove any twists so an accurate length can be determined. Place a looped end around a nail and pull as tight as possible. Hook a measuring tape around the nail and measure the distance to the end of the string as seen in the photos below.

3) String Material and Colours

It must be determined whether the bow is made for BCY X, BCY 452X or Dacron string material. Bows designed for BCY X and BCY 452X string will have reinforced tips to allow for the greater force associated with this type of modern material. As a general rule bows that are built prior to 1980 will use dacron string material. 

CHOICE OF BCY X OR BCY 452X FOR MODERN BOWS

 

 

The following string colours are available for BCY X and BCY 452X. Choose either 1,2,3 or 4 colour combinations. Bcy X is not available in the mixed 2 colour spools. For example the Green and Black speckled coloured spool is not available. BCY 452X is available in all the colours in the chart.

                    DACRON

The dacron string material used for older bows is BCY 55. The colour choices are below:

4) Serving Material

The serving material used for end loops and center serving is Angel Majesty. It is very durable and the premier choice for traditional bows. It is only available in the colour black.
