So there I was …………… all ready to order a video & a Flemish string jig when my long suffering wife asked “Why?”
I told her that the Flemish Twist strings look really cool. She wanted to know if they’re any better than the endless loop strings that I make & use. I told her that I didn’t know if they were better or not but they look really cool and cool is important. She said that my cool days are long behind me. I hate it when she uses logic on me.
So …………… question; …………….. Any advantage one way or the other, endless or twist ?????

You don’t have to buy or build a jig if’n you don’t wanna….
Look this up.
This how I make my strings.. They work great, look good.
I’ve never had a complaint from anyone that I have given one to.
I’ve made a couple of jigs but they all seem to be oriented for the 4″ shorter string length that is basic for a recurve bow rather than the 3″ shorter for a longbow.
All the instructions that I’ve read always relate to an even numbered length string.
I could use some education perhaps??????????
Probably a way to figure it out but I’m happy with my method.
We already had a ‘my math ability’ discussion on another thread…. :-))

Ok ………………. I think that I want to learn how to do this.
One thing I need to check on, though is the equipment rules at shoots; would the cool looking two color string be considered ‘string markings’ and get me disqualified ????

Clay Hayes has a video on it also ( no jig, flemish ). He does excellent videos on a multitude of tradbow subjects – imho
I’d call the tournament officials for string rules , don’t have any idea what’s allowed these days
