    Default My New "Stretch" D Loop Pliers from Outer Limit Archery arrived.

    It finally arrived. The feel, material and overall looks are great. I had to try it out so I took out my Damaged PSE bow that i use to practice my string stuff on and gave it a quick whirl. The tool was very easy to use. I did end up making the loop a little too long. I actually had the loop near the string but I was surprised how much the string stretched after using the tool. I took a quick pic and will have another D loop placed on at the proper length. You end up using less string if measured properly.







    This is how it's used,

    I understand. I'm not pushing anybody to buy this. I'm just sharing it with anyone that wants to read it. I am working on my only true archery WEAKNESS. I've always relied on a shop to do my bow work. I couldn't afford to buy the gear. Now things have changed a little so I'm buying items 1 or 2 at a time so i can learn from folks on here and do the work myself.

    I agree. My local shop was 90 miles one way, 2 hour drive. The money i was using for the drive... i can put it into the equipment.

    I know this is an old thread, but I was putting a new D loop today and decided to try my rusty Outer Limits tool.

    Once again it pulled the loop too small giving me so much nock pinch that my DCA target arrows wouldn't/couldn't stay on the rest.

    Added to that the loop was way too long.

    Sorry but the reason the tool was rusty is two fold. One it rusts way too easy. Two I just don't use it when doing D loops. I haven't found any tool that works better than my grandpa's needle nose.

    I have been picking up stuff for the home shop the last couple months and I gotta say the shops have always been good but I set my bows up perfect and its well worth the money I've spent on everything.

    Well, I just saw this. Looks kind of weird compared to what I use. I'll take a pic and try to get it posted.
    Our loop pliers has a "finger" type gage that won't allow the knots or string nocks be pulled together. If anything it spaces them a bit too much. Threatened to grind the "finger" a bit thinner dozens of times, but it still works as is. Ours is either highly polished or chrome plated, not a hint of rust anywhere in 6 years.....

    Looks like it works well for what it is, but my needle nose pliers seem to work just fine
