String loop or no string loop?

12 posts in this topic

Some archery shops recommend string loops and some don't, what are the pro's and con's of string loops, and would you recommend one?? Also, it lengthens your draw length, so can you just put it on any bow or do you have to take string loop/no string loop into account when looking at new bows??

Thanks for the advice guys!!!

I love them, I feel my serving wear while I have had my loop on is minimal. I shoot alot and there are times without my loop, I was replacing my serving 2 times a year.

Just make sure you melt a nice ball when tying them on.

I use a sting loop. If you are using a release it really does help with string wear, and arrow pinch. Make sure the person doing it knows what they are doing. Because a poorly made string loop can fail, and also pinch the arrow.

I see very little draw back to a string loop.

Get a string loop, I found this info on another forum.

"- Eliminates arrow-falloff at full draw.

- Makes nocking point location less critical.

- No need to re-nock after a let-down.

- No serving wear from release aid contact.

- Assures easy one-handloading

- Releases can remain attached and ready to go.

- Eliminates gaps in serving from up pressure on nocking point.

- Controls peep sight rotation.

- Eliminates nock warping due to pinch at full draw.

- Allows release aids to be at an angle rather than only level.

- Makes shorter length bows easier to work with.

- Extends maximum available sight range area.

- Prevents arrow from sliding down the string during the shot.

- Prevents release aid rope slap with high cheek anchor.

- Improves shoulder alignment.

- Loop length can modify draw length of bow.

- Eliminates chin slap from inward swinging release aid ropes.

- Can be used with all non-rope release aids.

- Reduces string vibration noise."

Use a loop, you can find the info online or have someone show you how. Once you know how to do it, it is easy.

I will go with the loop crowd. Less wear on the serving and allows me to use my carters hook release which I would not trust on the string.

You won't regret it... GAG makes some nice stiff rope in several colors. Cut it around 4 5/8" and ball the ends with a lighter and tie 'er on and tighten. Make sure it's tight and the balls won't pull through. Add a little serving around the nock to avoid pinch.

I can't draw! That's borrowed material. But it taught me how to do it so I figured it could help others as well.

I started using a loop this year after many years of replacing serving only draw back to the loop is I should have switched a long time ago.. On the other side the only draw back to a loop would be that it could cost you a little speed as anything on your string will slow it down. dont think it would be enough for me to ever go back to no loop..

    • Had an 09'. Got rid of it. Also,  you could not keep the front end aligned.  Otherwise a very nice truck.
    • Helps when I comprehend what I read.  I actually just cut the handle off my tongue jack on my Yetti and welded on 3/4 nut too.  My M18 drill with 1,200 in-lbs (2704-20) and it has no problem raising or lowering the tongue.  Biggest thing I noticed was making sure my drill was on the #1 low speed setting.      As far as torque goes and harming your auger.  I think you are totally fine and shouldn't harm anything.  The max amount that these K-Drills and Clam plates are drilling these days with the big drills are 8".  Most sized augers these days have no problem turning a 10" auger which is nearly twice as large of an area than an 8" auger.  Being 2 strokes can normally operate in any orientation without being damaged the only concern I would have would be your gears and any shifting of grease inside operating the auger head on its side under load.    They say Ions will do 10" holes but after I talked to their customer service reps about it, I wouldn't trust an Ion with a 10" more than I do a wet fart.  Just the fact that they don't even sell a 10" package indicates there could possibly be issues with torque and reliability when operating the 10" auger "accessory".  For now I'd just stick to your strike master going up and save your Ion any extra wear and tear.  Maybe even ask Santa for some electric jacks this Christmas
    • As the media begins to draw a pretty picture about the November jobs report, namely that unemployment has dropped to 4.6 percent, its lowest level in nine years, they are unlikely to tell you the other part of the story. The labor force participation rate continues to decline and is stuck at a rate we haven't seen since February 1978, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  It gets worse. Last month, we lost 4,000 manufacturing jobs, offering more damage to the already 301,000 we've lost since President Obama took office. - Town Hall   See for yourself.. U.S. Dept of Labor / BLS Date Viewer   Whaaa ???   OH, MY....  
    • I wouldn't do that for each one. I was wondering if you couldn't cut a winch down, or maybe just leave it as is, so you could attach a drill to the low speed post and tack weld/rig a socket or something for the other side and just hold it in your hand. It probably won't work because it sounds too easy. 
    • My, such big words!! Yer a talented liddle Smurf, aintcha? We might as well get to work doin' what we were accused of, munchkin!!! Like Carly Simon said, "no one does it better"....
