"I wanted to drop you a note, I found your DVD at 3-Rivers and got it right after Christmas. I made 2 flemish strings today, and am having a ball.
I have had the endless loop string down for a while, but the flemish has always given me problems. Thought you'd like
to hear." ~Jeff Barwic (1-2-2007)
DVD! I'd been trying for too long to figure out how to make flemish
twist bowstrings and reading the directions I have found on the web got me to building some strings. The strings
worked decent, but they weren't all that great. The "DOING THE TWIST" video was the breakthrough
I needed to learn how to not only make professional quality flemish strings, but also how to easily and cheaply make my own
string jig. Two big thumbs up for Chad and Joe's GREAT video!" ~ Frank D. - New York (3-19-2007)
"Wow! I already knew how to make bowstrings with a
timber hitch in one end and a loop in the other but wanted to learn how to make them with a loop in each end. This DVD taught
me exactly what I wanted to learn. I built a flemish string board by the plans on the DVD and it turned out
awesome and was very easy to make. I'm also making the stretching/serving jig by the plans. This DVD has a lot of good
information and anyone could learn how to make a bowstring by watching this DVD."

"Excellent Instructional! If
you already know how to twist strings, or have never made one, you need to buy this DVD! I've been twisting my own
strings for over 10 years, but laying out the strands with a tape rule. This was a slow process, and I wasted lots of string
by missing the length I needed. With this video I received confirmation about some things, that I was doing them correctly,
but also learned more news things. I've read several string twisting articles, but there's nothing like seeing it
done! This video gives two different perspectives on laying out the string, but both are very productive! Very complete as
far as instruction and detail. Entertaining music, and informative from start to finish. Thanks Chad and Joe for a great DVD!"

Informative, You guys did a fine job!! Even I can make a twist string now, and
this old dog doesn't do new tricks very often!! Congrats from a fellow TradGanger." ~Bill "Shakes.602"

"The Ultimate String Making
DVD - ever! Let me put it this simple - if you can't twist or spin a string
for your bow after viewing this DVD, you are hopeless, and I KNOW you CAN do it! Get this video and start makin'
your own strings, NOW!" ~Rob DiStefano - New Jersey (7/8/2006)
"Nice DVD! It's obvious, you guys put a lot of thought and work in making the video. The steps are simple and
well explained. I've never made a string before, however I feel that after watching your video and with a little
practice, I'll be stringin' em' up soon. Thanks Chad and Joe! I'd like to tell you
that I made my first string yesterday and It turned out very well (to the untrained eye), When you see
Joe tell him I really do appreciate you guys making the video. There is no way I could have done it without you
guys. " ~Craig C - Georgia (01/22/06)
