    Default How to tie a drop away drop cable

    My coach showed me this way to tie the drop away to the buss cable.

    Allows the string to twist and its easy to adjust.

    This is exactly the way I tie mine. Works really well.

    Have to try this. I always put it thru and served above and below. Works fine for me but easier to do it your way.

    I have never seen one tied like that.
    That's a really good idea.

    That works well if there is serving to use. Otherwise we split the string and serve over top of the cord.

    I do it the D-loop way too. About as easy as it gets.

    Did you tie that over the serving or remove serving? Looks like the serving is removed where you tied in.

    You can do that over the serving or string material. You would not need to remove the serving/shorten it to tie in a drop cord like that.
    That's a nice way to set that up. I played around with that on my target bow this afternoon.... I'll be going that route for sure, over the existing serving.

    Or get one of those little ball things...no need to tie anything...

    I guess the downside is the added weight?

    Hey hick I don't think a bit of added weight to the cable that moves all of about 2.5" will matter but I would caution about turning the screw too tight and stressing the cable....

    I like the method posted and I'm going to change over my indoor bow to that setup. I'm not messing with my hunting bow until after the season, that beast is shooting bullets.

    I tie um the same way. On the rest end i use a nock on the back side of the hole in the rest on a trophy taker. It's really easy to adjust, Just crimp and uncrimp until it is set right and then cut the excess off and burn to the end of the nock. I've been doing um like that since trophy takers came out. Never a problem.

    I've served them in, tied them as in your picture, but now I just use the supplied clamp with my QAD.......timing is so much easier with the clamp for my X-Force.

    Either way, the knot method works very well!!

    the clamp is so easy that it comes down to aesthetics!!! do you want the look of the clamp, or do you want the look of the knot......if you can't seem to tie the knot well enough, or you're fingers are just getting older, then use the clamp. either way works well!!

    I do half hitch knots on either side of the string with wax thread.It works great and holds to the string really tightly. this guy is the one that showed me this method.
