Question: How many twists can be put into a bowstring? On a standard compound bow, initially . 5 to . 75 twists per inch is a suggested range; meaning on a 60″ string, you should apply 30 to 45 twists.
Similarly, should I twist my bow string?
Putting in twists will make the string effectively shorter (think about twisting up a piece of string) which will increase the brace height; taking twists out will effectively give you a longer string and therefore smaller brace height. To do the tuning – start with the lowest sensible brace height and shoot 3 arrows.
Beside above, when should I replace my recurve bow string? A Recurve bowstring should be replaced every 2-3 years under normal use. The string should be replaced sooner if it becomes frayed, worn, or otherwise damaged. Modern synthetic materials are very durable but stretch and wear out over time. Natural strings should be replaced more often.
Hereof, what is fast flight bow string?
