Default Need a new string...and advice

I need a new string for my recurve. My problem is I only have bought face in b50 strings for my bows since they are all older. I have read a little about the fast flight and others. I'm replacing the string on a Hoyt gamemaster 2 so I believe it can handle the faster strings. The string that is on it now is a Flemish so I doubt it came from Hoyt that way but material is unknown to me.

One thing to consider when switching to a new string of different material and strand count, etc. If you end up with a better performing string, you will have to retune your setup. I would think going from a B50 to FF, you are going to end up with a setup that is too weak... and you might have to cut down on your shafts or drop some point weight, etc...

You might already know this, but figured I'd mention it.

That bow has reinforced tips so you are good to go with low stretch string.
