Yep, I've been using D97 on my old Bear Kodiak for years. The new material gives it new life. I also use it on a pecan self bow I built, and it makes all the difference in the world over B50. It truth be told, I think the really big developments in archery have been in string material more so than bow design. I always liked those Necedahs.

String construction, number of strands (in the loops at least), draw length, draw weight, bow length...and I imagine luck all have a part to play. I shoot Dynaflight on my selfbows (reinforced tips), but I'd never use it on an old bow that I cherished. I shoot modestly heavier draw weights (60+ lbs) and have a longer draw length (30.5"+), and don't like pressing my luck. I just don't shoot old bows much at all--they stack on me anyway.
