Boo and Blacktail are both members here that twist up good flemish strings for Excaliburs. I dont know if Perry24 makes flemish strings or not.

Thank you. Getting back into Excaliburs after a few years, what is the difference in a Flemish string and the string that the bow comes with?
The factory string is made from a single length of strand material wound over 2, 1/4" posts. It's called an "endless loop" or EL string.
The Flemish Twist string is made of usually 26 to 40 (depending on material) or so individual strands twisted together. IMO, the chief advantage of Flemish strings is
#1, ther beautiful
#2, they give a quieter shot
#3, ther more forgivin to limbs
#4, ther stronger at the limb tips
#5, you can make em without a jig
#6, ther handmade, each one an individual work of art.
#7, IMO, they increase pride of ownership.
Once you own one, yer factory string will only see backup duty. Wouldn't consider anythin but a Flemish string on my Excalibur, the one I have on er now been on for 5 seasons.

Thanks for the input Y'all, I have an order placed.
Ludy, before ya install yer new string, make shur yer old serving ain't bein chewed by yer claws. If ther not perfect, it'd be good ta correct that problem first if ya haven't already.
