As a general rule of thumb the actual length of the string needed for a recurve or longbow will be 3″ shorter than AMO length of the bow.  The AMO length is often stamped on the bow along with the poundage and draw length.   With that said the AMO standards aren’t always followed. If your bow does not have a string or you want to double check the measurement by measuring the bow unstrung. To do so measure from string groove to string groove following the curve of the limbs and along the belly of the bow.

Bowstrings are measured at the industry standard of 100lbs of tension so please order accordingly. If measuring hand tight the bowstring will measure up to 1″ shorter depending on bow string material. Returns are not accepted on custom colors if incorrect length is ordered. Please Contact us with any questions prior to ordering.


Q: My bow lists an AMO length; is this my string length?

A: No, typically your actual string length is 3” shorter then your AMO length.

    I started using 60X in 2017 when I lived in Phoenix, Arizona. Because of the heat and sand, I was worried about string stretch and string wear. The guys at 60X told me what they recommended, and strings were ordered. Since then, if I'm hunting or shooting ASA competitions, my bows only have 60X strings. I tell everyone to go to 60X website and watch the videos on how to measure and order your strings. Tell them it'll stop then from ordering too short of a string. I highly recommend 60X to friend and customers that come into the shop looking for new strings. Thank you, Anthony

    The most popular traditional bow today. The reflex/deflex design of the limbs allows a recurve to shoot arrows fast. You want to be accuracy you need the 60X string… Strings are Tightly wound and made to get the max performance out of your bow. It will take your bow to its max potential possible. Other strings made twang and didn’t shoot as good as my 60X.

    Shoots just as well of not better than the fast flight, and feels sturdier. I love it and I'll be trying everything 60x has to offer my recurve

    450+ string

    Posted by Jeff on May 16th 2018

    This was a great string for my Hoyt Excel w/ Tradtech Black Max limbs. Compared to the fastflight string I got with the bow this string is a lot more stable on the shot and has less vibration. Not only do they work great they look great too. I would recommend this to anyone shooting a fastflight and switch to 450+.

    custom string

    After a long search, yours is the only company that I could find a 65″ long bowstring for my Custom made Smithwick recurve bow. It fit the bow perfectly and now I can enjoy shooting my newly acquired bow.
