How To Start & Finish a Bowstring Serving ( backserving knot technique ) READ THE VIDEO DETAILS
***UPDATE*** The knot process is correct, however In the first part of the video where I’m laying serving on a bowstring, I’m actually going in the wrong rotational direction with the serving relative to the bowstring’s build rotation. I was concentrating on making the the knot illustration part of this video and just spaced it. The best explanation I’ve seen on how to determine which rotation you should wrap serving on any given string is found here starting at a minute and forty eight seconds on this guy’s video: https://youtu.be/50TF2sM-1UQ?t=108
Here’s the link to the Arizona Archery Enterprises ( AAE ) website where you can get the serving jig that I use: https://www.arizonaarchery.com/products
If you want to cheap out, here’s a link to basically the same thing a little cheaper on Amazon.

How I start and finish a bowstring serving. The start is pretty easy, but there’s a trick to finishing a serving without using an extra piece of string to pull the tail through. I’ve always called it backserving, not sure if that is the technical name for it, but it works for me. This technique isn’t just for archers either. You can use it to securely wrap cord around any cylindrical object. It’s a great way to store emergency paracord on a walking stick for example.
The AAE Pro String Server a great jig for the archer who likes to work on their own gear. With a retail price of under $20 (as of February 2013) it’s a fantastic buy. I’m not getting paid to say that, I just think the product is awesome and want to throw some love out there for the folks who make it. I run mainly BCY #62 serving material on my strings. I like the way it lays down and it has proven very durable for me. I shoot thousands and thousands of arrows a year and the BCY #62 holds up really well under high volume shooting.
