    How are custom sling cords made.
    I would like to know how to make my own too.
    plus I would like to learn how to do my own bow maintenance. :Cry:
    Are there books to learn this stuff. I feel so ashamed that I don't know how to do these things........ :doh: :Cry: :frusty:

    Custom sling cords are basically knot work. Buy a book on knot tying and braiding, the kind of knot book that shows fancy work used in sailing etc...

    I am sure there are some other resources, but I recently got a Lancatser Archery Catalog and they had a section in it with lots of books and such for sale.

    Great!

    I agree there are plenty of books to read that have facts about tuneing and such!
    I would suggest, to start small and get good at each part of archery.
    Try arrow building first its fun and easy and then move on to bows!
    It makes ya feel great the first time ya build your own arrows and get to shoot them!:biggrin1:
