Stringing a (heavy) horsebow using a double-loop stringer or "kemend"

Posted by ArcheryDuns on August 11, 2014 at 8:25 AM

There's a thread on AIUK (,
where someone accidentally bought a #80 horsebow & can't string it.

The technique of using a double-loop string or "kemend" is just as applicable to light-weight
horsebows esp. where there is a risk of poor technique
e.g. step-through method or even normal cup&loop stringer;
which may result in twisted, damaged/broken limbs

I know because i've been there with that nice #47 Hungarian Akosbow (
I won on FB for 1000-likes-shares).

The below blog-article has a video demostrating using the "kemend" & also describes
how to use & make a kemend
