Flatbow - Stringing and destringing
Hi all! So, after talking for weeks about the SF Forged takedown recurve I have been planning on buying at Easter, I am now the proud owner of ... a Buck Trail flatbow.
(It is very pretty.)
Anyway ... it's a lot harder to string and destring than I'm used to. Is it best to use the tip-to-tip style stringer? It came with one of those, but it feels like a lot of strain is put on the limb tips, and I've read stories of tips being snapped off. Would a saddle stringer be better?
The stringer also tends to fly off the top limb with some force when I'm destringing, which certainly livens the process up. If anyone has any advice, I'd be grateful (before I show myself up at the club when I'm back).
