Best Practices

BCY B55 string material works best for recurve and trad bows, in addition to crossbows. It provides strength and stretch in one, and is a great choice for older teardrop compounds. Dacron materiallike this should not be used on today's high-performance compound bows due to its strand count. Normal strand count is 12-18 for traditional bows and 24-32 for crossbows. It is offered in 1/4lb and 1lb spools.

    B55 Polyester bow string material

    Fifty years ago, I first started making bow strings. I bought a lot of dacron bow string, so this is the first time I have bought new string. Surprised that polyester had replaced dacron. Anyway, I have made two bow strings for my new recurve bow. Seems to working for me. Thanks for the very quick service.

    Dacron B55 String

    This is a very durable and workable string for recurve and long bows from 12 to 100 pound of draw. I could use the more expensive strings but they would be overkill for this type of archery.

    As advertised -- low stretch. Works well. Fast delivery.

    I am a new string maker. Focused solely on Flemish twist. I chose B55 because it's both economical and useful for crossbow strings. I have ordered black, orange, blue and yellow. 60x has their order process down. Everything arrived quickly! My only complaint is the inconsistency of string wax. The blue and yellow i just received had much more wax than the black and orange. The orange was almost completely dry, and this made it MUCH more difficult to twist. But I learned from it, so I got exactly what I needed from it. Cant compare to other string material but so far seems to be a good option.
