Brownell .036

Post by bigbowman » Fri Mar 02, 2018 8:14 pm

I just got a free spool of Brownell .036 Crossbow center serving. Will this work to reserve some old strings that I have for my Excals? I got a free Bearpaw serving tool too! I want to start reserving my strings. Any suggestions will sure help! Thanks!

I can't comment on the material or the tools. But if highly recommend watching Boo's 2 part videos and your be serving in no time.

That serving won't last as long as Angel Majesty but it will work well on your Axion and Vixen. The Bear Paw isn't a great serving tool. I had one and at the tip, where it's held together with a small screw, the screw pulled out of the plastic. The good news is that a Cavalier Pro serving (or any of the copies) tool isn't very expensive to replace it with. https://www.wyverncreations.com/service-maintenance-c-85/cavalier-pro-serving-tool-p-325.html
The Arco Sport serving tool is better than the Cavalier if you can find one.

Thanks Don. I figured for free and that I have 3 old strings, this would be great to learn how to reserve with! When I become comfortable with my skills, only then will I be confident to use AM material. Thanks for everyone's input!

Perfect situation! Before you start with Angel Majesty, give me a shout and I'll give you some tips that will short track you past some misery involved with Angel Majesty.

Where in Canada you can buy/order Angel Majesty? Small amount, for re-serving one's own strings.

No where in Canada that I'm aware of. To my knowledge, there is Wyvern, Danny Miller and then direct from Angel Majesty.
