In Urdu times, the bowstrings material used is natural fibers from plants, animals, or minerals. Today’s times are sophisticated, the fiber has been used which is synthetic which has strengths and other properties that are better than natural ones. Then what do you mean by dacron? Dacron is a string of synthetic ingredients that have higher stretch properties than “fistfight”. What effect? Because of the stretch, the speed of the string when pushing the arrow is slightly reduced. However, the positive end of the limbs where the string attaches (limb tips) does not receive sudden energy. Dacron is also durable/high durability is suitable for beginners.
Well, the value of the Dynamic Spine arc that uses the Dacron string will also decrease. Automatic requires an arrow that is more flexible (higher spine/deflection value) compared to an arc using the fast flight string. While Fast Flight is actually a brand of Brownell string output. The stretch level is smaller than Dacron, which makes the arrow fly faster. But somehow the meaning of Fast Flight became widespread, all modern strings that have a small stretch value are called fast flight strings. So strings are now categorized into 2 broad categories, namely Dacron and Fast Flight. For your information, bowstring has the main properties, namely:
– Abrasion Resistance: Resistance to friction. Bowstring consists of several strands/ply. When wrapped around to adjust brace height, of course, the string will rub.
– Breaking Strength: How much tension is needed to break the string. The unit is usually lbs.
– Creep: stretches / extends but doesn’t return to its original shape.
– Durability: Durability of ingredients. Like to see strings that look like caterpillars? Now that is a feature of a string that is worth wasting. The more durable the string, the longer the string becomes a caterpillar.
– Noise: The level of string noise when fired.
– Stretch: Material elasticity, back to its original shape. Rubber kayak.
