My '59 Grizzly is still shooting with the skinny string on it since 2008. Bow stays strung most of the time and no problems, the wood arrows weigh about 525 gns. I still won't try anything but B50 on my Kodiaks or other collector bows. BTW I too tested the strength of several string materials and found they were consistently about half of manufacturer's specs. I'm not recommending modern strings on older bows, just decided to try it for myself.
