    Default D-loops

    What D-loop material does everyone use? Got a pack of the Wildman D-loops, and haven't had much luck with them at all. Good for maybe 300 arrows, and they start to fray pretty badly. Thought it might be my release, but the loops on my other bows aren't showing any signs of damage. Thanks guys!

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.

    I use #24 stiff braided polyester d loop material from Bcy. Usually you don't have to replace it till you replace the string. If you need to buy any, you can buy per foot on eBay( in colors) .

    BCY #24. Normally lasts about one set of strings, about 1 year or 15,000 shots.

    I use a 1.7mm "construction cord" (the best translation i can give ). It holds up to 50kg (more then 100#) and costs only 4$ for 50m here. I'm still on the first piece and have it on the bow for about 2 years. I just served it with an ordinary thread, because 1.7mm was a little thin for my release.
