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.

    You want a good string? Or a great string?

    Posted by Jeff Coyle on Jan 2nd 2019

    If you want a good string for your longbow or recurve, you can order one from pretty much anybody. If you are looking for a great string that is high performance with repeatability, then look no further than 60x Custom Strings. I suggest holding off on your arrow tune until you install your new 60x string because you will notice a measurable FPS increase right off the bat. On my Hoyt Satori hunting bow, I gained 3FPS and on my Gillo G1 Competition rig, I gained 4FPS. This is huge! Thank you 60X for making the best strings in the business!

    BCY X Custom recurve string

    Posted by Cindy Wahlig on Sep 14th 2018

    My coach and a few fellow archers recommended another company for my bowstrings; I ordered two from that company, and found in the ten months I've been in archery, the strings were already showing wear. I saw 60X advertised on Facebook and decided to give them a try. Guess what? I'll be a customer as long as I own a bow. It was easy to order the custom strings I wanted, and they were in my hands within 4 days. I love the quality of the materials, and my bow sounds quieter than it ever has. The arrows nock perfectly, and the strings retain their twists when off the bow and in my bag. Exceptional quality, exceptional performance, and exceptional customer service - what more could an archer ask for! Thanks, 60X.

    Recurve String

    Posted by BenH on Aug 22nd 2018

    Great string overall. Fast quiet and nice colors. Only issue is the serving was pretty thin and my arrows had a hard time nocking securely without an extra few layers of serving material tied between my nock points.

    BCY Recurve String

    Posted by S. Aredn on Jul 18th 2018

    I am new to archery but I am not new to life. The quality of this string is wonderful. The colors I c hose are awesome and the build is just as great. This 60x string outclases my Bear Paw endless loop, fast flight string. I have no chrono, but I can see with my bare eyes this sring shoots my arrows much faster and it is slightly quieter. The last 16 months of archery quest have seen a lot of things, but my search for the perfect string has ended. Thank you.

    wow when it came, it was measured to specs. 60x made the strings according to string length and not bow length. I took the chance and made 2 strings with bcy x. one for 70″ bow length and the other for a 66″ bow length. using border limbs, I had a bought ready made strings and for the hex6h, they came too short. border hex6h limbs for 70″ needed a 68″ string and most ready made strings for a 70″ bow would measure in between 66″-67″ length. custom strings are the way to go in this case. 68″ string came in 22 strands and 63″ string came in 24 stands of bcyx. took the chance and affixed a nock point to them and shot them. 500 shots and counting, no brace, tiller height and nock movement. no fuzz yet even though had a few chest slaps. string was waxed properly when arrived. only concern was if bcyx was meant to have that many strands and if it will shorten the life of my limbs. beyond that, they shoot well, feel real good and loving them.
