    ok, i got my bow and string AND stringer. I can see that the string have two different loops: one large and one smaller. how do i know which loop goes where? both end of the bow's limbs look the same.

    The limbs are the same.
    I put the smaller loop on the lower limb.
    When you get your nock point set, make sure you put the string on the same way every time...

    Should'nt really matter as long as the center serving is centered up with the shelf. That said, I also put the large loop on the top limb. Just a habit.

    I never take my string off the bottom limb. I keep it on the bow backwards when not strung.

    I wax the whole string...you can use less on the served areas.
