Hence the reason it is better to move your rest instead of your nock set.What kind of serving marterial did Deezlin use?
One more quick question. How do you guys get the tied nocks and d-loop to slide up and down the string during paper tuning and nock placement?
I tried the tied nocks with 0.22 diameterserving string and couldnt get the nock or d-loop to move. I went to crimped nocks and untied the d-loop every time for each adjusment.
There has got to be an easier way.
I just put on a new rest and wanted the arrow to be centered over the berger hole. I use tied nock sets above and blow along with a D loop. I was going to tie a new nock set and loop but figured I would see if I could move them first. I don't mind tying a new set but find it a pain to get the old ones off. To my surprise I untied the lower knot of the D. Then it was easy to spine the open loop up the string. I then managed to thread the tied nock points individually up the string. It was not easy but once I got a good grip it spun, just a little at first then it became easier after a few turns. Moved them both. Then I was able to retie the lower loop knot.
I did not think I was going to be able to do it, as I tried and failed in the past. but this time it worked.
What type of string/twine/material is d loop material? I have 3 kids and 2 adults who shoot in my crew and I want to replace some frayed d loops. I went to buy some at my local proshop today and they want $10 for two lengths that are 4 1/8" long. Given they have melted the ends for me, but my goodness there can't be 5 cents worth of string there. Can I get this somewhere else?
You can order it here waaay cheaper from REDHDCHARM.. she has great product, fast shipping and great prices..

I already ran a few more searches in general discussion and wound up ordering enough for about 30 dloops from shootnow for the same price I would have paid at the local proshop for enough material to make 2 dloops.
Thanks for the replies.
good thread thanks
Thanks to all who contributed to this thread. It's great to be able to SEE the installation in pictures. I can't wait to try this on my own bow. Thanks again.
Top thread thankyou!
Wow, amazing thread! Just what i was looking for!
Must check if there more in other threads...
Yes very good Threasd ! But can someone show me also how to make the servingstring where the Arrow nocks in ? Also how to make the extra serving around the string, that bends over the CAM´s ?
Would be great !!!
I buy my D loop material in volume (100 ft length). I dont cut my d loops to length and then install. What I do is I have a length that I will be able to make lots of d loops with . I tie the first knot underneath and then having all that extra length I can grab hold of and pull that first knot really tight. then I run the second knot and pull it to the length I want my d loop to be and pull on all the extra length and it pulls the second knot really tight also. Then I cut the extra off leaving enough extra to burn the end on the second knot. I use a soldering gun to melt the second knot on the d loop. When using a soldering gun to make the bulb on the d loop material make sure you are using a clean tip without any solder on it. Found out the hard way that a previously used tip with solder on it will actually melt right into the bulb of d loop material you are trying to form.
This. Thread. ROCKS.

Can you supply a picture of this setup? Thx!
so i can find it later
When I joined AT, I was told this would be a very infomative sight. This was no lie. Thanks to every one! You have all been a great help.
very useful, to the top.
Great thread, very useful and well done.
