    I do not have a loop on my bow but i would like to get them becasue I think they make good sense reading about them.

    However my question is are there different size loops that you can make or do your just tie them how big you want them?

    second question is i have noticed in a lot of pictures people put nock cushions or serving on either side of the loop should I have a speed nock in there or what should be done to have the same nocking point inside the loop?

    The loop size is determined by the length of loop material you start out with.

    As far as nocks or serving, I personally don’t use them. I see no need, if you use a good quality loop material and tie it properly. [=}=]

    i personally dont like the string loops but i know alot a people shoot them. the reason i dont like the is because i have seen a few of them come untied in full draw and one of them ripped a guys jaw open. if you insist on shooting one please put a little bit of super glue on the knots, to insure they dont come untied. i like to use , what i call a tied on knock which is similar to the brass knocks but it a series of knots tie on( one knot on one side of the bow string, another on the othe side, another on the other side and so on and so on untill it s about the same size as the brass knock but a little bigger. then just a dab of super glue just to make sure it dosent come untied. it serves the same thing as the brass knock and looks similar to it as far as how it looks on the bow string except it speeds the bow up 3 feet and doesnt have the extra weight as th brass knock or string loop. i have been using this method for 7 years and havent had any probalems or slipage or stretching like the string loops tend to do. its a good conversation peice and looks differant so it catches alot of attention. you would be suprised how muck weight and noise the brass knocks makes when it is shot. almost like a “doing” sound.

    And once you find the length that works best for your set up, you can have some precut with both ends burned, ready to throw on :thumbup
