Making your own bow string and cable

For past few days I have been looking into how to make bow string and cable. I have come up with fool idea to use braided fishing line! . Well, I finally found the "right way" and the right materials to do it.




This is a very good series also.


I will ask my nephew, a machinist, to build me a bow string jig.

Actually, most of the high speed string and cables are all ready made from the same material as braid.

Those are some good videos. Alot of the bowstring serving materials are a braided spectra just like fishing line. I don't see why fishing line wouldn't work.

I made a string jig for both my compounds and recurves. Its not that hard to makes strings and cables....the most tedious part is serving the end loops [a necessity]

what you will find is its all labor....the cost of the material is nuthin.

Sure a roll of BCY-X is expensive but you will never come close to using the whole roll. It gets a little more expensive when you start talking multiple colors as those rolls aren't cheap.

I've still got the same roll of 452x. If I was buying a roll now....it would be the BCY-X.
