Choosing The Best Bow String

Like the wheels on a car that transfer energy from the engine and propel your car. The string on the bow also transfers a burst of energy to the arrow so that it bounces off towards the target you are aiming at. This bowstring is the most vital part of your archery equipment. That is why you need to choose Long Bow Strings by ABB. It requires attention and care to replace to ensure safe and maximum use.

Conventional materials used for strings include linen, flax, other vegetable fibers, muscle, and animal skins. In an emergency, almost any fiber can be used. It’s just that the fibers from the muscles and skin of animals will be very susceptible to water. But today we have strings of high-tech synthetic materials. This advanced fiber allows bows to fire more reliably, faster, and accurately.

Modern materials also allow archers to personalize their bowstrings, just as they do vanes and others. The hardest part, we will be treated to a lot of color choices. And even more when you want to combine those colors to make your bow very, very personal. You can get strings in neon orange, pink, gray, or any color and color combination you want. Before ordering a new string, it’s a good idea to know a few things about strings and some tips to reduce breakage and prolong service life.

Among the strings with modern fibers that are often used by beginners, archers are the DACRON, due to its durability and stretch. With ordinary polyester, Dacron has a strength of 50 lb or the equivalent of 22.5 kg per sheet (ply). Dacron strings have a relatively high stretch value (2.6%) which causes less wobble in the bow. Dacron twines are effortless to preserve and can last fairly lengthy. This polymer fabric has a more elevated viscosity and trimmer diameter than Dacron. With a force of 31.8 kg (70 lb) per strand and a stretch weight of 0.8%, this twine is qualified of delivering an arrow velocity of roughly 2 meters/sec.
