Bow String History of 60X Custom Strings
While shooting local archery tournaments and bow hunting back in the mid 1990's I was always frustrated when my fast flight bow string or cables would stretch and need to be retimed. It seemed that every time I got that bow set perfect I would have to put it back in the press and make an adjustment. Around that time some new 'no stretch' bow string materials like S4 and 450 were coming to market. Since I was already building my own arrows and doing all my own bow work I decided I wanted to learn how to build bow strings. I took my whole paycheck for two weeks and went to the local shop and ordered up a bow string jig, serving tool and bow string material. After a few quick lessons I was building bow strings like a madman. All of my bows soon had some sort of flashy colors at a time when everything was solid black. As time went on I would find myself up late at night after work with my jig set up in my bedroom or across my parent's living room twisting up a set of bow string and cables for a friend, family member or local archer that was in need of new threads. Over the next 10+ years I would continue helping archers with bow strings as a little hobby while I traveled across the country shooting archery tournaments. I made several great friends along the way and even enjoyed some success shooting from time to time.
