View Full Version : String serving

I have noticed that there is an excess amount of serving on most strings. What would be the result of making a string with minimal serving? Would it be louder? Quieter? Faster? I could loose 5" total on the 360.

To answer your question, you would gain speed. In some cases it will become louder, but most of the time it is not noticable. Without the excess serving the string becomes less stiff and has less weight. That allows the string to cut the air faster.

Thanks Hutch, I was guessing that speed would increase a little. Was more curious about the noise factor. The string you made me for the Oneida was with minimal serving and I couldn't tell a difference. Was thinking with a true compound you would be able to.

Something else I just noticed. On the 2011 Acu-Trak cammed bows there anr no speed nocks/studs, wonder why that is?
