Does anyone know of a better way to serve a B50 string other than the 3Rivers Little Spinner serving tool? Either that thing is a piece of junk, or I'm just inept.

I follow the video to the T, but when I try to serve, sometimes it goes to the right, sometimes it goes to the left. There are gaps at the start and I am completely frustrated.

Any ideas?

Never saw a "little spinner" serving tool.  It's not in their catalog.  I use a AAE Pro String Server.

Your issue sounds like the spool isn't tight enough.  Or you're not using it correctly.  Once you get the serving started draw it up to the bend in the server and just turn around the string.  There must be a video of using a serving tool.  Frank

I agree with Frank. You probably do not have enough tension on the spool, if  the tension is correct it should just follow along as you spin the server. However I will add to that statement, the little server is not my choice.

Been using a Bearpaw server. Works better than any server I have ever used. Very well made and once the tension is set, it stays that way.

I use the AAE as well, tried others that didn't work. Heard the Bearpaw is good too but have not tried it

Have used the Little Spinner for many years as well as several others. Proper tension must be applied, if done so it’s a joy and very fast to use.

Thanks folks. I decided to take the bow to my local archery shop to get it served. Rob there always does good work. After watching him use the BCY 26, I decided to buy one. I took it home, made a couple more strings and my new server worked great. It's so much easier and I didn't get frustrated once.
Maybe I'll hang on the the Little Spinner for old time sake or maybe I should just trade it for something.

The AAE has worked great for me.
