BCY 652 Spectra 1000

BCY Spectra 652 is equivalent to the original Brownell Fast Flight material and is preferred by some for recurve bow strings. It has more give and a little more stretch than 8125 or D97.


For Spectra 652 we recommend the following strand counts as a starting point:

  • 14 strands (20-26 lbs draw weight)

  • 16 strands (27-34 lbs draw weight)

  • 18 strands (35-42 lbs draw weight)

  • 20 strands (43-48 lbs draw weight)

  • 22 strands (49+ lbs draw weight)


Your new string - please specify:


Your bow - please specify:

  • Riser make/model/length(21", 23", 25", 27")/handedness - example: Hoyt GMX 25" right handed
  • Limbs make/model/draw weight/length(short, medium, long) - example: Hoyt Axia 36lb medium
  • Nocks make/model/size - example: Beiter #1 pin nocks
  • Shooting style - example: Olympic recurve, barebow, traditional, hunting recurve

Spectra 652 String

  • We can determine the string length needed with your riser and limb specifications and by referencing bow manufacturer recommendations. Strings will come at that length with a standard number of twists already in the string and prestretched to reduce break in time. However if you have a string that gives you the desired brace height for your particular bow, we can match that. Here's how to measure.
