    Centre Serving Material

    Just curious as to what other people use for their centre serving, as I keep having problems with the one I have been using, it either separates or ends up with a flat spot. I use BYC 8125 for the string and BYC 3D for the centre serving. Has anybody got any better recommendations or ideas. I only want to replace the serving at the moment, as I will make a new string at the end of the year.

    I'm using F8125 for the string, and 4MAX to the serving. Real good.

    When you say separates does that mean at the nocking point? And is the flat spot at the nocking point too?
    If so, the best thing would be to give a few more details such as D-loop or not. Release aid and type of jaw or not. metal nock sets or thread etc etc.
    The reason for your troubles could be the result of what the nocking point is made from and how the release works on it, rather than the serving materials and the string.
    Let us know.

    Seperation can sometimes be caused by not putting the serving on tight enough. If you buy a premade string alot of them aren't twisted or under pressure when they are served, so when you put them on your bow and put some twists in, the serving goes loose on the string and starts to seperate, mainly around hard curves on the cams and your 'D' loop can also start to pull the serving apart.

    As Geoff said, more details would help isolate the problem

    I've always used Diamondback .022" since I started making strings. It's not a terribly smooth release material but it does the job very well and I've only had one centre serving start to come apart on me - after it had been hitting my arm guard for a good 3 months!

    Sorry should have put that info in the 1st post. The flat is in the nocking point and the nocking point is hand tied (top and bottom of nock)with a D-loop. On closer inspection it looks like the serving is slipping on the string. This is the first time that I have used BYC 8125 and it seems to be very slippy , could this be the wax on it? The string is made by myself and as far as i know i have put the serving on tight enough.
    Maybe what i should have asked is what string/serving combinations are people using on their compounds?
