Could strands of baler twine be used as a backing?

Never tried that before. I like the idea. I have used burlap with great success. I would break the twine down to fine groups of fibers rather than leaving it all twisted. If you soften it and soak it in glue just like you were doing a sinew back bow it might even have the look. If you decide to give it a whirl make sure it is clean. Photo document the process and keep us up to date!

good luck!

Would this be a good idea to try on a board bow or would it really matter?

Interesting idea, what type of glue would you use?

--------------------
The broadhead used, regardless of how sharp, is nowhere as important as being able to place it in the correct spot.

I haven't the slightest idea I'm new at this but I think the twine is made of nylon I was thinking maybe Titebond II or III?
