    My father is letting me borrow some of his older bows and I was wondering about the specs on some of them if anyone knows

    first one is a Ben Pearson Gamester 7388 @45lbs and was wondering the length of string and number of strands.

    second one is a Stemmler model: 823 @ 40lbs and was wondering length of string and number of strands.

    Thirdly I was considering building a string jig to try to build my own strings and was wondering if anyone has done that here and if they could describe how to build one, with specific directions.

    thanks everyone.

    Also I know that they sell glue on finger style rests, but is it traditional to shoot with those or to shoot off of the shelf on the handle riser?

    Both. I have some bows I shoot off the shelf some I use stick on rests. If you use a stick on rest you will get better flight if you want to use vanes. Vanes don't seem to work great shooting off the shelf.
