Chris MacEnany: Hey Nick I really enjoy your channel. I have a question I made a re curve
break down bow and it's about 47" long measuring by the method you showed
and for the life of me I can't no way get the distance of my palm with my
thumb up between the string and the bow grip. Your comments please. The
true distance between string and bow is about 4 1/2". Is 1" schedule 40 too
big for a break down bow or should I have used 3/4"? The bow looks great
and is balanced and plenty strong. The problem is I don't think I have the
strength to string it. But I finally did and tied plenty of knots in a
paracord and strung it overnight. The previous measurements are the results
Charles Douglas Contreras: what kind of string or material are you using for making the string? and
thanks for share your knowledge

Louis Ta: and the string is made of twine. though i don't have the proper string to
use, it still works.
Louis Ta: i made my own 10 pounds longbow with trial and error. first 2 fails were
using 1/2 inch pvc pipe and cutting the nocks way too deep. and when i pull
back they snap off. so i made an ingenious way to do it is by not cutting
the nock too deep and only cut a v about 1/8" and the depth is only the end
of the thickness that way it does not break.
Keli Tony: This looks really easy to make. Thanks for the vid

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.
