I Like and Use a Lot of Brownell B-50 EXCEPT the Red ... Review by TimInBoulder

I make a lot of bow strings using twelve different colors of Brownell B-50 dacron. It stretches somewhat, but that's expected. However, when used in multi-color bowstring twists, the Brownwll Red color of B-50 bleeds all over other string colors. It bleeds onto light colored bow nocks, too.

Ugly problem, indeed.

So, I sent my spool of red Brownell B-50 back to the Brownell company explaining the problem I was having (even sent them a sample bowstring that I had made up with the red color showing the situation). Via email and with a letter enclosed I asked them if this problematic red spool of mine represented the norm with their B-50.

Their response was a slight to me, to say the least. The first thing the Brownell company did was to send my old spool back to me with neither letter nor explanation (?). I wondered about Brownell's concern over any quality variations in what they sell. What a disappointment, as all of their other colors that I have used (9) have held color fast.

I have switched over to another manufacturer's dacron/polyester bow string material and have solved the bleeding red problem that I was having with the Brownell stuff and that's nice for both me and my bow string customers.

Note: after this review got out, Brownell sent me a new spool of red B-50. No explanation of why their red bleeds or anything, but at lease I got some response, if a bit tardy.
