    Question What size of serving for serving around cams?

    I want to serve where the CCS and cams come in contact with my string and i am wondering what size and best gripping serving there is out there.

    I take it that you are going to serve both ends and where the CCS contacts.
    You should be able to use .020" or .021" BCY. Where the string touches the CCS just about anything will work. I used BCY 452X Green bow string material to better match the two tone green and black string.

    Heard about this before but never tried it. How does it wear and how well does it stay in place?

    Actually, I've been using BCY 452X for quite awhile for both the string area that touches the CCS and serving in peeps. So far no slippage and no wear. I have two 1/4 pound spools of black and green. Boss ordered the 452X for the guy that worked here before me. I figured if it worked it was better than letting it sit there and collect dust. I have also used a quality Extra Strong Button & Carpet thread for tied string nocks and serving in peeps. I usually wax it first. Wife got tired of me using hers so she bought me my own. Hold on to your billfold! For 50 yards that stuff cost $1.99 plus tax!

    i use BCY 3d for my loop serving its where it goes around the cams, i have also used spider wire 65# test , it only comes in green, i do not use any serving on my ccs. i think to much serving slows things down.

    But wouldn't you rather use an archery brand? You know it will be better.
