The Ragim Nylon Bow stringer is made for Recurve and Long Bow Stringing. It's both lightweight and strong, and it's easy to use. Simply start the string on 1 end of the bow, then slide the pouch end over the tip/string. Then slip the Loop end over the other tip, slide the sting thru the loop, put 1 foot on the stringer- pull up on the bow, this will pull the limbs back- now slide the loose end of the string over the tip, and lower the bow until the stringer becomes loose. Remove the stringer from the bow and adjust the string on the tips.
