One more question. I will be using 452X. Single color Fluorescent Green. How many strands do I need for the string and control cable as well as the short uni buss cables? I have the Pse string specs download but it doesn't tell me what the factory strings are made of and how many strands.

Any good brand and size suggestions for heat shrink? I'm using some stuff from Home Depot but it's not quite shrinking down to the string diameter and I dont think the durability is there. I want to get some custom order stuff so I can brand my strings. I figured the think tank here could point me in a good direction.

Does anyone use a heat shrink with glue? Not sure how the string would like it, but when I work with electrical stuff it makes great connections.

You want 1/4", 3 to 1 ratio. I buy from Electriduct on ebay or Amazon. Not sure on who does printing.

I know some builders use the adhesive lined shrink wrap without issue.

I use adhesive lined with no problems. I remember seeing a few big name builders say to use it so I did. I like it much better than the peep tubing I used to use.

You might contact these guys. I know the owner has done some custom shrink tube printing for some builders in the past. Not sure if he's still doing it though. Second To None Bowstrings and Archery Supplies

Looks good. Some professional builders charge extra for that
After going through it I can understand why. I thought about using some extra golf tees to keep the pinstripe out, which in hindsight I guess I should have. What I did was tie some serving material to it. After I initially stretched it I relaxed it and pulled the pinstripe out in places it tucked back in.

Are most guys using just 2 strands (one on each side) for the layup process?
