Boo's a professional string maker, so if he told ya...he'd have to kill you! Actually, he gets it on tight, very tight.

I go through quite a few Cavalier Pro serving tools because the cross pins break. I've bought the Spigarelli serving too and it works well and I do not see anything breaking yet. I did swap the tension knob for a wing nut and I think I see some modifications in the future.
Using smaller diameter serving is a good crutch(for lack of better words) for those who cannot serve as well as I do so it's not a bad option. The smaller diameter serving digs in deeper and allows the latches to sit on top of more than one serving wrap at a time. Servings materials that do not lay flat do better in this respect.

Just wondering, what do you charge for a new string?
I have an older Excal Excocet. I am constantly fighting with the serving. I cannot get them to last. Having a string that will last more than a few shots without re-adjusting the serving would be nice..... Even still, even without separation, my servings in the past seem to have worn out faster than I thought would be reasonable. Certainly not 800 shots on a string.
Now that I think about it.... perhaps I twisted the string in the wrong direction when putting the new string on the bow... (never thought about twist direction before......) which would worsen a loose serving. Will have to check that....
Anyway, how much for a quality string?

"learnin":D I'm also doing some "stuff" with the relatively heavy draw weight SCM Twinbow II .......sorry, I forgot this is an Excal thread:D
Speaking of the TwinBow II, are you still planning on a report on your findings or did I miss it somewhere? Thanks!
