Care to share the details of your methods?field14 said:Over the years, my brothers and I have come up with a means to measure what length we need to make or order without tearing the bow down....if the string/cable is CLOSE to spec, then we go with specified lengths and strands.
There is no NEED to remove the string and cable and tear down the bow in order to make up a harness for it...you either go with spec, or you measure it up while on the bow...it CAN BE DONE ACCURATELY...remember, those strings and cables are ALREADY under an enormous load once they are on the bow!
The key is getting not only the lengths and strands correct, but also the other "details" built properly too....

Better too long than too short! Remember, the string SHOULD have 10 to 15 or more twists in it anyways....Personally, I don't even like having a string with less than 15 twists in it. There are limits how many twists are put into the string, but it is somewheres upwards of around 30 or 40, or maybe even more than that. I don't like more than about 25.bobbyg said:The only problem I have with AMO Spec's is when you have a manufacture use AMO standard measuring for there string lengths. Then you have before twist and after twist string lengths. We should really be using exact string lengths given by the engineers who designed the bows. I used to hate taking a string spec off a bow and then find out it was before twist, you end up coming up to long.
