Welcome to the forum,
If your bow has reinforced limb tips. You can use any type of string material. 8190, D97 dynaflite, fastflite, or dacron. If it doesn't have reinforced limb tips dacron. Also whatever the AMO size on the bow you need to go 3.50 inches shorter.

Those limbs have reinforced tips, so you can use any type of string material that you would like.

Thanks Dean,
As for the string material your choice since you have reinforced tips. I build a lot of strings out of D97 dynaflite, 8190 or B55. But with reinforced tips you have an even more variety.

For traditional strings I highly recommend Chad at Champion Custom Bowstrings, he has been making them for over 20 years and really knows his stuff; he also has close ties with BCY and works archery shows at their booth. He has made me strings out of D-97 and convinced me to try 8190 for my last set and I really like them; the best part is he will make them right and if not replace them, whether the length or serving size is off(nock fit is very important).
