Good luck on your hunt. I'm sure you'll have a great time. Went for the first time last June, and planning to go again next August of 2018.

String broke on my recurve... No damage to bow. looks like it separated under the serving. Probably caused by the brass nock set.

I have some spares but they aren't padded at the ends. I doubt there is time to get another one from SBD strings but I will try. 12 days until departure.

I contacted Pierre at SBD bowstrings hoping I could get one before my departure. He came through like always! Give his strings a try! Superior product and performance with second to none customer service!

Good thing that it broke here and not there and that there was no damage. Its for that very reason that I don't use the crimp on brass nocks. I had one break in the same way, ever since I have been tying on a string nock. Its easy and is easier on gloves too.
We will be in South Africa next week, good luck!

There are many ways to tie on nocks but the easiest I've found and never had a problem with is tie a piece of bowstring or braided serving material with an overhand knot back and forth on opposite sides of the bowstring then tie off with a square knot and either add a drop of super glue or carefully melt the ends. You adjust by turning it like a nut up and down the string.

Seems like Charlie Lamb had a tutorial on it years ago.
