Bowstring Diameter/Recommended number of strands 22 to 24 strands. All bowstring material is relatively flat in a single strand, so it is not appropriate to publish a diameter of the individual strand. The important issue is how many strands are required to give a satisfactory nock fit, which is what the above recommendation shows. These numbers can vary according to nock type/size and personal preference. Recommended strands are for typical modern compound bows. Plus or minus two strands is normal.
Approximate feet per lb waxed 8800. Please note bowstring specifications are published so stringmakers can get an idea of how many finished strings can be built from a spool. Due to variables in the manufacturing process, BCY is unable to guarantee exact specifications.
Breaking strengths are no longer published by BCY because discrepancies occur, due to different test methods. BCY can provide minimum breaking strength information upon request, but as a general guide, 452X has a 70lbs break strength. It should be noted that all modern materials far exceed the strength required to perform satisfactorily as a bowstring material.
BCY manufactures and supplies products in accordance with these specifications. If used correctly, the material will serve the purpose for which it was intended as a bowstring or as a serving material. All BCY products are extensively tested and offer a full range of material for the archery market. There are many variables which can significantly effect performance of the bowstring material. Some examples include number of strands and/or of twists, type of serving material, tightness of serving material, width of cam grooves on bow, amount of lubrication, type of release, condition of cam wheel, yoke system on cables, degree of string maintenance. As BCY cannot control these variables, BCY cannot accept responsibility for problems arising from strings, cables or servings.
