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..

    •   Where did I say anything about entitlement for anything for anyone? Nor did I name any news agencies, so maybe you should answer your own questions.    Maybe your just upset because you've got snow to shovel and I don't.
    • Butt the 2 sheets tigh and leave the gap against the side walls of the boat where it will be less noticeable and get no foot traffic . A thin strip of aluminum riveted or screwed on the underneath side of the plywood helps to hold the seam tight
    • two bowls of that will send you to heaven!!
    • 10 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY early this morning. Can’t sleep so I got up and made a breakfast and rolled myself into the den to look at my mess. I am in the middle of a computer upgrade when my new addition decided to die on me. Not a new computer but the daughters old one which when running is ten times the old junker that I have been running. We have narrowed it done to the power supply but I am going to have my x son in law take a look before we do anything. If my den is not all ready crowded enough with a cluttered desk and tobacco out to roll some cigars and the trays of flowers under the grow lights there is just enough room for me and my chair.   So I hitched a ride yesterday afternoon to the Lodge with my neighbor Chuck. Place was quiet so I was actually working going over sales the last week and plotting sales when we had games on the new TV and sales are up. We will have it paid for here shortly and it might even make us money this summer if the Twins can put any kind of a season together. So I am at the bar and a older gent walks in that looks vaguely familiar. Looks the place over then takes a seat on a stool in front of me "HIYA" he says and I return the greeting. "Where are the dogs" he asks. I sit back in my stool and ask "You mean Bud and Barney?" He nods his head yes and says "It has been awhile since I have been here but I do remember being greeted by two big brown dogs" " They both passed a few years ago." I said. He nodded his head and said "Sorry for your loss" and we both just sat for awhile thinking of old dogs.   "My name is Luis" and he put out his hand which I shook. "Got a place on the end of the lake and this is a long drive to get here but I decided to make the drive today" "Welcome to the Lodge Luis" I said then I yelled out "Duncan" and Duncan got up from the couch in the office and came out to the main room. "Say hi to Luis" Duncan then came around to Luis, sat down and stuck out his paw to be shook. Luis chuckled some and shook Duncan’s paw and looked back at me and said "I figured you would not be dog less" Some petting and a few good rubs and the two of them were now long loss friends. Duncan came around the bar and laid down on his rug by the cooler.   "So what can I get ya Luis?" Luis looked at the back wall and said "You know it looks like a beer day, How about a Hamms?" So I poured him one and a shortly for myself and went into my bartender mode. "You have a dog Luis?" I asked. Luis wiped his mouth with his sleeve and smacked his lips. "I don’t but my wife does. "What kind ?" I asked and Luis told me he does not remember, it was expensive though and it is retired. "Retired, I asked, How old is it?" Luis taking another sip of his beer said "Two"   "How can it be retired already" I asked. Luis looking into his beer glass said "Well the wife carries it everywhere, dresses it up in spendy dog clothes, It fits inside her purse and she takes it shopping claming it is her companion, I thought I was her companion" Luis held out his glass for a refill and I poured him another. We spent some time talking about hunting dogs and big house dogs and dogs that never see the inside of a purse. I sat on my stool behind the bar with Duncan’s paw resting on my foot, I guess it aint all that bad here at Lake Iwanttobethere
    •     Sounds like Trump wants to run it like the DNC and the GOP run the debates, only minus the DNC...      
    •     Yes, that's what I was thinking.....    
    •   Rush was getting the pills from multiple doctors and off the street, which is punishable by up to 5 years in prison..  But, of course, he had the financial means to avoid prison, whereas the average Joe does not.   Ending the war on drugs means getting the federal government less involved with drug abuse, since they have failed miserably at the job.   States like Arizona and those going ahead with legalizing marijuana as a first step are taking the lead, and eventually the feds will have to step aside.   http://substanceabuse.az.gov/substance-abuse/rethink-rx
