Nice to see the forums back up and good luck to the new owners.

I've gotten into stringmaking just for myself through disappointment with store bought strings. Have made ten strings so far using 452x, 8125G, Dynaflight 97, Fast Flight Plus materials.

Question one: Many feel that 452x is too harsh because of the no stretch qualities for Olympic style recurves. What are your opinions?

Question two: How do you choose what material your strings are made of? I guess with a chrono one may see speed differences but in casual shooting, I cannot tell any difference whatsoever, the bow even sounds the same whatever string.
