I make my own with either Fast Flight Plus or TS-1 Plus. When I use up my supply, I will get some Dynaflight 97.

I like to make my own, flemish twist strings. Been shooting TS-1 strings and they are fine after they settle in, very quiet. Generally 10-12 strands. I like Rick's strings better 'cause the 8125 seems not to creep at all. They are quiet also. Just that 8125 is hard to find, although I think Lancaster archery sells it. Not sure of the strand count on Rick's strings, havent tried to untwist and count them.

Rick told me that his strings are 16 stand. I have found in he past that I prefer 10 to 12 strand, but will shoot the string Rick sends me with the bow and see what I think.

I have a 45 lb Dakota pro hunter and a 55 lb pro hunter. The 55 lb is shooting gold tip 35-55 shafts (the 'wood grain' shafts) cut to 29.5 inch
with a hard pad right where I look. These shafts are too stiff for the 45 lb bow, even with no side pad. Shooting the lighter gold tip hunter shafts (35-55 black shafts) with that bow but still shooting left with a light pad. Went to a 12 strand TS-1 string instead of the 8125 that came with the bow and it moved the arrow right about 4 inches at 25 or so yards. The lighter string helped move the arrow to the right, but I might have to shoot full length shafts to get them further right.

Thoughts or suggestions?
