    Question:

    Why should the string loop be tied with each “leg” of the loop coming off opposite sides of the string?

    Doesn’t that cause some string torque?

    I had never questioned this before, until I replaced a string on my bow and notied that once relaxed, the srtring was actually fairly crooked at the nock point. Suggestion some string torque.

    Anyone have any thoughts into this?

    i see between your string loop, you have some serving tied in to prevent the loop from squeezing in on the nocks.

    How did you tie those? Mine keep coming apart.

    I tie nock sets in just using overhand knots. 1/2 knot on top, 1/2 knot on bottom, and etc to get the size you want. You can come back on top once you get the width you want and make it as thick as you want. When finished, just tie a double knot, cut and burn.

    :D another alternative …which works very well and also pre stretches the loop….Is the loop pliers..this puts over 300 lbs force on the knot and the dont move..

    another string loop idea that I use
    I purchase my loop material in bulk 3 foot lengths
    burn and make the first knot. then stretch it very tight with the remaining length… tie the second knot getting the loop as small as I can,
    just so the knock won’t actually fit the string without being pushed off
    and do the same thing tightening the second knot with the long remaining length, then cut and burn…
    The loop will just barely stretch to about 1/2 inch and stay there..
    Not creating a 1 inch or longer loop after hundreds of shots.
    mine has been at it’s post stretch length and not getting longer
    for a long time now… actually…. ready for another string /cable change again after the season.

    I hate to tie a loop and a few shots later I can almost slip my finger through the loop it’s so long.

    These pliers can be had from britesite.us for $25

    I prefer these over the viper loop pliers.
    I haven’t used the Worlds Best pliers yet.

    Isn’t this loop the way you tie it for left handed shooters, because on the john dudley “knot a problem”, it shows the loop tied opposite of this. Just curious

    :D Not really no…as you can see each knot is reverse of each other…therefore they equal each other out and are not fighting left or right, if you were to tie two knots the same side you should tie them in the same rotation of string twists…

    either way with this loop works as long as knots are reverse of each other..

    :D You can tie this in reverse easily..simply start with the ends facing away from you on the first knot..
