My 355 suppressor jumps up hard at the shot, I have never watched my arrow hit the target. Is it just me? My bulldog 400 is much smoother. Should I try something different? I shoot 400 grain taps now would a Flemish string tame it a bit?

When I had my Micro 355, it was a very violent shot when I shot it! It actually scared me when I shot it the first few times! There’s a lot of stored energy in those short stout limbs! Lol

Howdy neighbor, we both have a Micro 355 and BD400. I agree that the Micro is harsher on the shot than the BD and will jump a ltitle if your hold it lightly. Also believe that a light hold is very accurate with these recurves.[/QUOTE
Hey Smong yea I try to not hold to tight for that reason, but when you read about guys watching the arrow all the way to the target I'm like shit there is not way that can happen. Just want to get out and shoot to try a few things but not when the wind chill is negative20

Hey Smong, not sure what I did but screwed up my reply. Do you have a Flemish string on any of your bows?
I do have Flemish strings for both bows, I think both from Danny Miller. They are nice but I have a JBK endless loop for my Micro355 made from Brownell Rhino material that is very noticably quieter, smoother and faster than the Flemish string. Wyvern is selling them but I spoke with Jeff from JBK and he said the material is no longer available so not sure what there is out there today.
I shoot the Flemish strings for targets but switched back to ELs for hunting season just to max out the speed with my heavy arrows. Probably makes all of 3 or 4 fps difference and we know how important that is. Lol:rolleyes:

I'm headed out for a walk, temp is up to -14 F up here but it's a dry cold... and sunny.

Danny is using Force 10. Brownell threw in the towel and a company from Peru bought it and will produce Brownell products in the near future.

Brownell was a string material manufacturer that is now defunct but bought by another company and will be brought to life in the near future. Rhino is a good string material that is pretty close to characteristics of most others (the difference between most materials is relatively small).
Creep is the permanent elongation of a string (stretch is temporary) and with the exception of materials that use Vectran, is almost totally controlled by strand count to a small degree but mostly by the string maker by what he or shes does during building. I can get a Force 10/Fury, Rhino or Dynaflight 97 string to stop creeping within 50 shots or in some cases 15 to 20 shots.

Boo definitely makes THE best Flemish string, period! All of his strings that I’ve bought has stopped stretching within 20 shots! They also last a long time! The servings hold up very well too! It’s worth the price of every string that Boo produces!
