I guess I'm the one to blame for you getting started.

For a string, I got mine at . I got the one with a flemish loop on one end and a timber hitch on the other. I think they say it's adjustable to fit a bow with the length of 68"-72".

For a backing: I just got done making another long bow out of a red oak board. This one is 62". When it was close to full draw, it pulled a splinter along the edge of the back, so I backed it with some black linen. It turned out pretty well I think. I've read about using jeans, but I hear that it does stretch a little, so maybe it's not the best choice. I'm just a rookie though, so maybe it's good enough... what do I know...
