    I think that's where the minimum of 12 twists comes from, so your string is round and doesn't "balloon".
    I've experimented with having the least amount of twists so the string doesn't act like a spring. I found it very hard to get a good AND quiet tune from it. Made a string a tad longer with more twists and the noise problem became less of an issue.

    The importance depends on the string material also. If you put to many twists in Angel Majesty it starts to shoot weird - at least I've had problems with it. With most dyneema type strings (8125, FF+, ASB etc ) it really doesn't make a huge difference unless the string starts to knot up. But I have to say that I think the second string in the picture does not have enough twists. I doubt it's going to separate but you're pulling it in to your face - if it has a profile like that it is more likely to damage your face :-) I've shot up near the 60 twist end on a 72" bow string and would always rather be at then end than the sub 20 end.

    Might be worth doing the Majesty trick - wrap some paracord around it, pull tight and rub up and down - it may cause the string to round up (make sure there is a decent amount of wax on the string cause the cord will remove most of it). Works beautifully with Majesty and your string drops about 20% in diameter. So if you like that brace height you need an extra 1/4" or so on the string length.

    YMMV
