How To Make A Bow String - Continuous Loop Part 1




What do you think about this video?

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. It's great!

edb strung: Would you happen to know common walk in stores that carry Dacron 50 string? I've looked high & low online to see for a local retail shop within 15 miles, but cannot locate anything. (I can't buy online).

CarlosMacMartin: Keep up the good work,Nick! Good way to spend your time! Cheers!

TheNinjutsu5: i love how you put a ink in the description for the other parts of this series in each of the parts, instead of leaving us to find them.

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.

TheDave570: you can use a toilet bowl ring......lots-a-wax....lasts a long time.....

mauserman67: Do you bowhunt with the bows that you make or are you a competiion shooter only? i would like to see a hunting video of you using one of your pipe bows to take a deer or hog to test the effectiveness of yuor bows,great 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.

Mujtaba Ahmed: i cant open the "breaking strength to string amount " file, can someone tell me, what breaking strength does a string need to have for a 35-40 pound bow?

cetuspa: Makes sense, thanks.

venomblademedia: You rock man!

Miguel Mendoza: This video was made 3 days after my b-day

Crimson Facade: the bow is simple -recurve- bow using your flatening technique the pipe is 5 feet long

Newb Bowyer: Can I do this with paracord? I know that it stretches but it's the only string I have atm for my bow, basically a temporary thing

LUIS MESTRE: hi nick where do you get the material for the string? archery store is it a substitute for that material

the3rdsentry: I've been using this one for a while now. I just never had the patience for the flemish one you use, even though I REALLY want to learn how.

Endrikh Darkvine CXVI: the nailboard is just a measuring aid right? you can just measure without one right? cuz it is difficult for me to buy one and transport it on my bike

Legit_Muffins: Could you make a PVC compound bow?

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.

Ninjutsu Hawaii: can you use paracord for a pvc bowstring?

TheRfleming: Were is part 2 I can't find it here...

José Ivanildo da Silva Filho: Congratulations for your work! I and many people I know were impressed with 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.

cetuspa: Did you say that continuous loop string shoots slower than Flemish Twist? If so Why?

Rogue MacWritter: Hey, does someone knows the breaking strenght necessary for this string? I need to know 'cause its kind of hard to find dacron were i live and i thought about something like fishing line...
