I have searched for the answer myself but it seems this forum only goes back so far so my search is a tad limited (or perhaps I am wording my search wrong...)
Automan's string jig post has got my wheels turning on building my own string. While I understand the actual string fibers pretty well (I have always used 452X strings), I am a bit confused about the different serving materials. There is different thinkness, material, etc. that has me a bit perplexed on what to use when, where, and why.
I understand that the thread diameter of serving is important for end servings (cam grooves) and center serving (nock pinch)....but actual the actual advantages vs. disadvantages of each material is confusing
I have heard people using various serving types for the end servings...I have had 3D and Halo served string and personally cannot tell the difference myself (given the limited interest I took in it before now...)
Thanks for everyone who has posted a plethora of useful info in getting someone like myself interested in this endeavor.
