BCY #24 Bow String D Loop Material

BCY #24 Dloop Material

If you’re using a mechanical release aid, attaching it to a D loop for bow performance can make your shooting more consistent and comfortable, as well as extend the life of your bow string.

D loop material is a great choice, as it provides lots of stiffness and resists pinching and slipping. Pro tip: some colors are stiffer than others. We believe this is due to the dye.

  • Show your style: We have 25 colors of BCY #24 to choose from to perfectly match your bow string.
  • Buy only what you need: We sell BCY #24 in lengths of 3, 5, 10, 25, and 100 feet.
  • Useful material: You can use #BCY 24 for drop away rests and string loops.

How to Tie a D Loop On a Bow

Check out our short, easy YouTube video showing you how to get the knots right.

Note: In our video, we aren’t using real D Loop material. We’re using a giant, brightly-colored cord tied into an enormous D loop so that you can see everything clearly. A real D loop is going to be much smaller, about the thickness of your finger, and the cord is thinner.


What are D loops?

Rather than releasing an arrow with your fingers, you can use a mechanical release aid for improved shooting performance. Rather than attaching this aid directly to the bow string, which will shorten the bow string’s life, you can attach a small amount of additional string material to the main bow string. This creates a loop shaped like a small capital “D” on the bow string. You can then attach the mechanical release aid to the D loop.

How should a D loop for a bow be tied?

See our demonstration video on YouTube. You can also read our Styles of D Loops for Compound Bows blog post or our Placement of D Loops for Compound Bows blog post.

Why do the ends of a D loop cord need to be burned?

Burning the ends of your cord with a simple household candle lighter melts the fibers together, which prevents the knots from pulling through as easily.

What is a good D loop material for a bow?

We like to use stiffly braided polyester cords, specifically BCY #24 D Loop material.

How thick is a D loop cord?

The BCY #24 cord that we sell has an apex diameter of 2 mm (0.08 inches).

    This material wears well, and holds it's shape for the life of the loop, it does not say down like other cheaper brands.
