Thanks that's great. I'll Definitley refer back to this. I will pay so they set it up. But I take it I need different strings per different limbs?
So I'll have to use that screenshot and look for videos.

So basically the nock point. Is where the arrow goes and the tools find dead centre on the string?

Diagrams are so much easier than words ! Lol

dead center then set the nock 1/2"above that point. thats why you always string the bow nockpoint up. its slightly off center. see where the arrow is setting between 2 nocks.

most strings are wound for the heavier limbs, so will work with the lighter limbs.but there are some specific to weight. all are specific to length of limbs/riser.
ones i use are the 2 bundle Flemish twist. had had one distort yet. the first pic is flemish twist. the second pick is 16 strand endless loop. what you have to ensure is you get the correct length string for your bow. when you get your bow, buy at least 2 new strings with it. when you get down to 1 spare, replace it. always keep a pair. sometimes they get hard to find or on back order.

I'm unable to find someone in the UK which sells more than 25 pound draw weight. I presume it's for target practice.
Also there doesn't seem to be the same quality of service as America, such as paying extra for the bow being set up and accessories. On the other hand, the American prices seem higher.

Ideally I want a place in the UK I can go to, which is under 100 miles from the Welsh capital, ive got today off for Easter week,so I'm going to be shopping around today

Made my order. Excited lol.
Btw do you think split finger or 3. Finger under was best ? I ordered on the phone so went with split finger and I paid extra for the Berlin glove which is better padded
(I'm also a musician so want to protect my fingers from callousness)

I took your advice and got the extra Flemish string. The one costing "zero" came with the kit but in paid extra for a spare.

I hope I didn't forget something? I remembered most of What you said, including the arm guard.

If you lived closer we could go shooting one day. One if the archery ranges is in monmouthshire which is a great area.
I'll probably meet other enthusiasts there though lol.

Btw why is the bow 62 " but the string 58" ?

to set the arc. to long a string and the bow loses tension, to short a string and your draw is off and you will damage the limbs. string length is calculated for the bow length. saying that you can gain a few LBS by "twisting your string" thus shortening it about a inch.

you got the right one to protect you fingers.split finger and Berlin glove work well, three finger was always a lil clunky for me.
Ive got a older daughter that lives in London, ya never know, might end up back over there for a visit......... let us know when you get it in...................
