I found a youtube video that demonstrates how to make a flemish twist string. It also show how much the dacron string stretches if anyoane is interested in watching.

That is an interesting way to make a flemish string, but it is a very loose method. My thoughts are that the method of building the string is introducing a lot of slack in the individual strands, and he has more settling as a result.


My strings don't have nearly that much give in them after I string them. I do the same stretching method on my bow as he shows in the vid, but I only gain 1/2" or, thereabouts at that point, and by the end of the week shooting 1-200 arrows it is another little bit longer. After that it is pretty stabile.
