BCY B55 Dacron Bow String Material

BCY B55 dacron bow string material is a top choice for traditional longbow and recurve bowstrings.  B55 is 100% polyester with characteristics similar to dacron but with better durability and lower stretch.  It is available in solid colors.  B55 dacron is also a top material for older recurve or teardrop crossbows.  While it is a great choice for older teardrop compounds it is not to be used on today's high performance compound bows.  Normal strand count is 12-18 for traditional bows and 24-32 for crossbows.  It is offered in 1/4lb and 1lb spools.  1lb spools are pre-order only.  We place weekly BCY orders each Monday and have them the following Monday. 1 lb. are pre-order only for this product Pre-orders typically arrive in for shipment within 7-10 days of order being placed.

    B55 Polyester bow string material

    Posted by Norm on Dec 11th 2020

    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.

    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.
