I am a new compound archer... i owns a hoyt Proelite 07 and i am planning to change the string and make it myself as i previous did make recurves bowstrings. i believe that basic fundamental of making recurve bowstrings is the same as making compound bowstring. I even purchase dvd of little john bowstring making, it is a very good dvd for strings makers..
Here's my question, normally when i make recurve bowstring i will use my old string to suit it length when i make..
hmm.. i saw alot of thread saying that after making the string should be twist 1.5 inch per twist..
So may i know, before i start making the bowstrings, should i increase the length of the string to account for the twist or should i shorten the length of the string to let it stretch and i twist it?
Note that i would pre-stretch the string to 300lbs.. The material of the string i will be using is BCY 452X string, BCY 3D end serving and BCY 62Xs Centering serving..
Thank you very much for your advice..
