Yea they impregnate the resin via heat - and after you get the string stretched in and set to your desired brace - you burnish it with a piece of leather - this heats up the resin and bonds all the strands so that the string becomes almost as if it is one big strand - when you unstring it is is like a wire you can actually bend it and it will hold the shape.

It is the nicest shooting string I have ever shot - very quiet, fast, and has a great feel to it. My last one is over a year old and that is what I put on my bow now till I get my new ones and it seems fine still - the one that broke was only 5 months old.

It is possible that I got it too hot burnishing it and that caused a weakened spot - we shall see - I sent them the broken string and they are going to let me know why it failed.

That's Richardson. Richardson is one of the colorful minor characters in the HBO series Deadwood.

Actually - I don't watch TV - I just watch stuff once in a while from Netflix - the only TV channel I get is Public TV and I refuse to pay for the garbage that is on cable or dish.

I like sci-fi - but am not a diehard - I like all sorts of shows - as long as they are well made - Firefly and the feature film Serenity was some of the best stuff ever produced for Television and the box office.

Speaking of sci-fi - though - I had fun with photoshop and setting up a bogus facebook account for my wife:

I also put the photoshopped pic in the local newspaper with the heading:

"Congratulations on your promotion to Commander from your friends at Starfleet Accademy"

she has sworn revenge - :lol:

I will check out that show if it is on Netflix

Looks good! I saw it on Netflix. The kids are going away for a week. I may have to try and get some of those and watch them.
Thanks,
