    Default Catfish / torqueless string loop

    I've heard of it. Do a search in AT General Archery Discussion. Someone had Post on it and how to make it I believe it is something of another loop made by someone in Australia. It attaches without use of a knot and below the arrow and uses a tied string nock for a nocking point. Let me dig in my files......
    Found it. You can buy them pre-built. Here's a pic. Client's Loopy. www.clientsloopy.com

    Search for catfish-loop. I made a tutorial with pictures for the forum this summer or fall.

    The beneftis are:
    - Individual and perfect fitting length
    - Without knots.
    - individual strength and thickness

    According to the archery report website, the benefits are no torque on the bowstring, no knots, and easy to replace in the field, also indestructible. The down side is it takes time to learn, and does not pull peep into position due to it rotating freely.

    Which is not bad at all. If you have a good string your Peep will not rotate at draw. So once you have setup your bow with a good string you will be fine.

    Montalaar is correct! A very well made string there is no peep movement. When I first started making strings I had some peep rotation. Now usually I get none.
    Hopefully when I can get around to building my new string jig It will make string building a breeze.
