What string size, how many twists etc do I need. I'm new to traditional archery and purchased a Bear Grizzly with writings that say KR62637 AMO-58" 45#... I'll be using the bow for 3d shoots and hunting if possible. Thanks for any input.

You need an A.M.O. 58" string which will be ~53.5--54" long. Number of twists will be determined by tuning the arrows and bow.

45# will take all but the largest of North American game quite easily.

Thanks for the info, is there someone on AT you'd recommend buying a string from or a website to get one. I'm not sure there's many around here that build strings but I'll ask around.

Go to 3rivers buy a flemish jig and some B50 string and have fun. Well maybe not fun. Actually frustration. It's a bit of a learning curve, but then when you need a string you can make one yourself.

go to www.recurves.com very impressive work from this guy
The above is Chad Weaver and goes by the user name of LBR on here. I think he's a moderator too here on AT. He made my present D97 bowstring that's on my 42# recurve. It's a very good string.

Ebay. There are several builders that will build to your specs and ship for $10 some $12 dollars (shipping included). One that used to get a lot of billing here at AT was seller "stilldub" - he now has an archery store on Ebay. Email what you have and want or ask his opinion and he used to ship next day by mail. Excellent build and service.
