Serving A Bowstring




What do you think about this video?

fireflite34: I was taught to wrap the serving in the same direction as the twist in the bow string. Is there a right or wrong direction to wrap serving or just a matter of preference?

David Robson: Awsome thanks so much mate shoot a cross bow and for ever blowing out center serving. This was by far the best tutorial ive found well done.

Phalucrouz: Thx for the very good vid.

Stephen Duda: Do you find its ok to reserve under the pressure of the limbs? I have heard it needs to be done under 300 lbs of tension

Tactical Priority: nice video! it only took me like 5 years to figure this out on my own!!!!

Ticatthehunter: What do you do if you haven´t got a winder? Is it OK to do it without?

HuntingResource: @fireflite34 I have seen center servings wrapped with and against the twist of the string from various top notch string manufacturers. There are different schools of thought as to which is best. Obviously, not everyone agrees. Personally, when replacing a serving, I have always just matched what came off of the particular string I'm working with unless the shooter claimed to be having problems. When building new, I would just stick with what you are comfortable doing.

HuntingResource: I've never had a problem with replacing a center serving under limb tension. (Especially on a "broken in" string.) Generally, top string manufacturers will serve under that sort of force when building a new string. About the only time I have actually used a string jig to increase tension is on replacement end servings that will be subjected to rolling over hard cam lobes.

HuntingResource: @Ticatthehunter You can. But, for a full center serving it will take a lot longer and probably not be as uniform or tight. You can buy a serving jig for as little as five bucks I've seen. Well worth having.

usernamemykel: Isn't the winder the Bohning Serve Tite?

Chirimorin1: great video! I need to re-serve my bow as the current serving has worn out. This video showed everything with clear instructions!

ridge084: Perfect, thanks.

Ticatthehunter: thx ;)

jwrigley: thanks for the video. It's been years since I've done a serving and I found this great as a refresher.

Denis Zemljič: Thanks!! this is the best vid for serving a bowstrng.

mtnbowmaker: Awesome! thank you so much for your very well explained video. I am a new bowyer and want to make my own strings to go with them. I have been struggling with the serving, but feel confident now since watching this. thanks again!!

1019drummer: very awsome thanks.

HuntingResource: Yes. The serving tool being used in this video is a Bohning Serve-Tite loaded with BCY #62XS .021" diameter braided thread.

Denis Zemljič: best vid on how to serve a bowstring I ever saw

Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
