I have a string I need to re-serve. I also have a serving tool and would need some type of string jig to keep the string taught while doing so [correct?].

What is the standard center serving material used in economy off the shelf bought D97 strings?

Thanks in advance.

Why not put the string on your bow and serve it? That's how I serve my strings. I do not know what serving material is used on off the shelf D97 strings. You'll want to use a serving size that provides good nock fit. Depending on the serving you choose it might be cheaper to buy a new D97 economy string verses a spool of serving string. The serving I use is over $20 a spool.

I do it w/ string on the bow. My old school standard is Brownell #4.

Thanks for the info guys. The Brownell's #4 looks like that is what I'm looking for. Agreed that there serving spools more expensive and luckily I do have several spare strings, but the Brownell's #4 isn't too bad at $6 a spool.

Halo serving doesn't wear out.
