Ask any real string maker over on Archery Talk and they're going to tell you that a properly made string will have about one revolution (twist) every 1.5" of the string.
All these twists do several things. They make the bundle of strinds tighter and quieter. Makes the strands work together as a unit which helps stabilize them and reduce peep rotation and helps with keeping serving in place.
A string with 3 twists in it? You got to be kidding. A string that long should have about 50 twists in it when stretched to finished length. Take a look at some good custom two color strings. All those twists in them are not to make them look pretty. There there for a reason.
