Our strings are created under a full tension process where every step of manufacturing occurs under pressure before, during and after creation.We stock all makes and colors of BCY material. 452x is standard on most strings and cables. It is the preferred material for target archers and hunters alike because it has no creep and outstanding stability. 8125 is another common selection of string material. This material has a higher percentage of Dyneema making it lighter and faster with low creep. For most new recurves and crossbows, Dynaflight 97 is recommended for its strength and durability. Older recurves and teardrop style bows require a string that has a little give involved, B500 will work well for these applications. Strand count may vary from bow to bow. Strings and cable will be constructed in numbers divisible by four (16, 20, 24...). SSStrings works with our customers to create and deliver a string manufactured to each individual’s needs.
We also stock all types of BCYs serving material. Standard 3D .017 end serving is most common but may vary depending on the application. Halo serving is recommended for applications that require more durability (For example, cable ends). Halo is also commonly recommended for center serving due to its slick texture. 2X end servings are advised with roller guard bows to reduce friction and increase speed. It also has a smaller diameter overall. Center servings are graded on gripping ability. #62 is most common; 62xs is an upgrade in durability and has higher grip potential. Halo center serving is recommend for finger shooters who like to slide off the string, not recommended for release shooters.
