Re: Strings for Jim & Buddy 21st Century Bows?
« on: June 27, 2020, 01:20:34 PM »
Hello all,

I recently picked up a J&B 21st Century Full Moon and I'm trying to figure out what string it's using so I can have a replacement in the wings. It's an eight-strand Flemish twist, but I don't know how to determine if it's Fast-Flight or B-50 Dacron. Can anyone help me out?

David,
   Its hard to tell buy just looking at the picture but there is a way to tell if you can find a little tag end where the string tapers down past the loops and is usually waxed and trimmed to blend into the string.
  Just take a little tag end and a pair of sharp sizzers and try to cut a end and if it cuts very easy its a dacron material and if it just rolls around and hard to cut its some sort of high performance material like fast flight.
   Being only 8 stands and that color it could very well be a high performance material unless that bow is a very low weight.
