Tedd... over the years I've come to really like a double served area under my glove. If you don't care for that, you can start closer to the nocking point area. I'd try to get at least 12 turns on the serving before laying the material back over itself.

Dave...I've never paid any attention to which direction I wrapped it. Probably the same as when I originally served the string...out of habit.

Now do I see that Kellar kid wavin his hand in the back of the room? (uh oh, I smell somethin burnin!)    :D

If you hook up some alligator clips you could probably electrify the string CK.  :knothead:

Can I ask the questions now?


I didn't see any of the little brass, crimp on thangys in your tools list. When are you going to show how to put on the nocking point? CK

So does the built up serving replace a tab or glove???  Just courious about the extra thickness and does it make the arrow kick up since the string is stiffer at those points and can I use fletch tite instead of super glue?  Oh yeh what about putting one above also?


Scott


Hope there arent too many questions.

CK...been meanin to try some of those brass thingies! No! Wait! I forgot!! I can't stand them...yeah! that's it!

Honest. When I put on a nocking point I don't want it to move ever and I know exactly where it needs to be.
Last thing I want to happen is to shoot at a nice buck and find out my nocking point slipped at some point in time.

Scoob... It doesn't replace the glove or tab for me, but might make the string a little more comfortable for those who want to shoot bare finger or with gloves/tabs that don't offer quite enough protection.

It doesn't affect arrow flight that I can tell. If you use Fletch Tite or Duco you'll find it more prone to wear loose. It requires more maintenace with regular coats.

I didn't show it in the picture, but my preferred set up has the string double served above the arrow nock as well, but without the bump.
I find that it's a very positive way to nock the arrow. If you are anywhere near the middle of the string, the arrow can only fit in one place. (without forcing it)

No offence meant Mr. Lamb. Just voicing my opinion on your work, fine work too, nothing "slap-dash" about it.
  With the linen strings I use I have to adjust the nock periodically as the string stretches. It just wouldnt work for my particular application. Thanks for posting the pics and all though.

Certainly a new and interesting method. I use two string nocks, tied on but will try this on at least one of my bow strings, as I think I would really like it. I would like to see one final picture of the string with the wrap above on it also, if possible (but guess I can see it on my own, come to think of it). This tutorial should definitely be saved in the How To's also IMO

I dunno Charlie, nock points, servings..all seems kinda "high tech" to me. But if I went for all that stuff, I think I'd have to at least give your method a try.   :D  

Nice job on the tutorial   :thumbsup:

Some of us just gotta have a crutch Micky!!  :D  

Like I said above guys... this method can be modified so it's just the knot on the string if you like that better.

oh sure - I had to try the Lamb nock.  I got my finger glued to the dang string, then I accidently whipped it in place.  I got kinda of messy when i cut my finger off to clean up the nocking point.  I may go with the naked nock like Ferret from now on  :)

Thanks Charlie, I am pretty new to this so any lesson that I can use is great. I don't like the brass ones either. I would also like to see this saved in the how to forum.
