Looking for a BEST QUALITY bow stringer that will string a long bow or a recurve. NO METAL RIVETS in the cups to scratch tip overlays, NO RUBBER SQUARES that slide off the end of a long bow. A stringer that always works! ANY SUGGESTIONS?

I don't know if it has a name, but the only place I've seen it is on Robertson's Stykbow site. Leather cups, no metal eyes, and better yet, the stringer string encircles the cups on the outside. Thus, the stringer string goes over the bow tips as well as the leather cups. In my opinion, it's the best stringer out there. I have several. Should probably buy more before Dick quits making them.

I bougtht a stringer but, there is always a but you know. I don't rememnber the name. It is made from a flat black 3/4" wide webbing belt. It has a socket for the bottom end of the bow with two sockets on the top end. On the one side is a recurve socket and the one on the other side is for a longbow. Works great and covers both bases!

The flat black 3/4" webbing stringer is being sold on Ebay right now. I just received mine today and haven't had a chance to try it yet on some of my more troublesome bows (small tips, long limbs and heavy draw weights). It looks like it should work. The ebay seller is: reloading_rich. His auctions are titled "NEW BOWSTRINGER / FITS BOTH RECURVES AND LONGBOWS" and there are two going on right now with a buyitnow of $10.99 and a starting bid of $9.99.

You can also buy them direct from Rich at:
RCis@comcast.net

I'll try to remember to leave a post after I try it out. I have a couple of bows that are real buggers to string with any of the normal stringers.

I've tested the 3/4" webbing stringer I purchased on Ebay from reloading rich, a member of this forum. My most difficult test was a highly recurved, narrow tipped, 68" long 55# recurve. The type of stringer with the rubber triangle on one end, would slip down the recurve and, because of my relatively short arms, I couldn't apply enough force to string the bow.

The double leather cup type stringer would cover the string groove to the point where I couldn't get a good seat for the string. Both types (I have several styles of both types) are also prone to knotting.

The webbing type stringer handles this bow with finese. I had no trouble stringing/unstringing the bow. I highly recommend this stringer.

When I first used it I was nervous about the shallow depth of the cups on the webbing. This proved not to be a problem. The rigidity of the webbing also makes for a quicker install of the stringer. When first received, the stringer is a bit stiff (hard to get the tips in the pockets). After a few stringings, this stiffness goes away and it becomes supple.

GREAT PRODUCT. I will buy another.

The 3/4" Webbing stringers are exactly what I sell out of my shop. IMO, they are the best and I use them exclusively on all shop bows. Only on a rare ocassion when the limb tips are built really small do you need a Selway type stringer.

Tedd...glad you like the stringer. I'm ordering another 6 for the shop. I really push them on my customers when they order a custom bow. Its a cheap investment compared to the money spent on a custom bow.
