Landon LoveL: You videos are great. I went right out and built two of these jigs. Then
ordered all the supplies. I'm stoked! But I have a question. Noting the
twist, How long do I make my string when I want the finished product to be
58"? Meaning, should I make it 59" then the twists take it down to the 58"
I want? Maybe 58.5"? I guess I'm trying to ask how much shorter is the
string once you twist it a normal amount? Thanks again for all you do.

dougtheheavy: got a little experience with that myself. paracord make a good improvised
string. but it seemed to be pretty slow. it also stretches making it very
difficult to cut the string a fitting length. all in all, your much better
off avoiding it.

videos and concept for on the cheap!
SumoNinja92: Do you have a tutorial on how to make that PVC String server? Would like
the measurements if you don't have one up already.
BackyardBowyer: I said that funny. I meant that I like Flemish strings because they look
nicer but they do shoot a little slower than continuous loop strings. The
main reason for this is the extra weight of the string itself. Continuous
loop strings are usually a little lighter. Flemish strings are also
twisted, which causes the string to act like a spring. This robs the arrow
of energy at the last moment, which can hurt speed as well. If you twist a
continuous loop, the same thing happens.

pseudoweapon: Have you ever tried using floss?
Justin28082: I just wanted to add a note. Maybe I'm the only dummy that didn't get this
till I drew it out on paper. When you first count the stings you will have
an extra strand on one side. Not 7 and 7. It will be 7 and 8. Its not until
you wind the loop areas and cut off the excess does it equal out. You cut
half a strand off on each side which removes in total 1 strand leaving you
with 7 and 7.

the quality of their bows and crossbows and tried to copy them. I love
making replicas of medieval weapons and guns in old wood, but never managed
to make a good bow. But with your excellent technique in the use of pvc
pipes, I've done three bows and plan to do many more. Congratulations again.
