    String Material and servings

    Post by Hutch Admin on Tue Mar 08, 2016 6:43 pm

    Its learning time from BSD!
    Learning about BCY bow string materials
    There are many different bow string materials that are used for different purposes
    Here at Bow String Depot we use Trophy, X, B55 and D97.
    Trophy is one of our stronger sellers it is the same as 452x but it has gore fiber in it to help it resist moisture and fuzzing. It doesn't creep or stretch and is 100% stable. Its a great stable material in heat or cold. But like all string materials heat will effect all string materials. It is also the only one other than 452x that comes in speckled colors.
    Trophy Bowstring
    452X blended with GORETM Performance Fiber to give increased durability, total stability, less fraying, less noise, good speed and dampened vibration. Available in 45 colors.
    Recommended strands: 20-24 for compounds
    X is a very strong seller as well but for different reasons it resists fuzzing and is stable but it gives good speed and durability
    BCY-X Bowstring
    All the benefits and performance of 452X and 8190 combined. Good for Compound Bows and Recurves. Available in solid colors.
    No Creep
    Good Arrow Speed
    Low fuzziness
    High abrasion resistance
    Recommended strands: 24 (on compound bows
    83% SK90 Dyneema - 17% Vectran - Patented Construction
    B55 for re-curves, older compounds and older crossbows it is a stretchy base so that the limbs are able to flex and not stop dead thus harming the limbs
    B55 Bowstring
    100% polyester similar to Dacron but with better durability and very low stretch. Available in solid colors.
    Recommended strands: 12-16 for re-curves
    D97 a good all around string material great for bowfishing, youth bows, etc. Great durability and strength.
    DynaFLIGHT 97 Bowstring
    The original high strength Dyneema® bowstring - 100% SK 75; very durable, low creep. Available in solid colors.
    Recommended strands: 14-16

    I love the X string material with 3D end serving and .021 center serving.. This combo has treated me well with very little to no creep and peeps stay straight all the way through the draw cycle!!
