I dont have any recommendations as I make my own flemish twist strings with b50 from 3rivers. Use them on glass recurves and selfbows. Usually a twist of yellow and brown colors. My recurves are oldies, 59 Kodiak and a few others so cant use fastflight. Have you posted this on tradgang?

Same here, Flemish Twist...Newest bow I own is a 76 I picked up last night and it's the only one I own that's newer than 1968....If you have a modern bow with reinforced tips, you'll get more pop from a Fast Flight....But Flemish or straight B50 is the way to go on anything with some age.

Depends on what your bow was built for with regards to string material. If the tips are reinforced to handle the newer non-stretch string material, then you have a world of choices. I have had good results with D97, 8125, 450, BCY X to name a few. I prefer to build skinny strings and pad the loops. All my bows are newer models( within the last 8 years or so)

I make my own 12st rhino flemish strings padded to 16. Once I stretch and serve the string, it doesn't move more than 1/4" for the life of the string and is amazingly quiet. I get an average of 2-5 fps speed advantage with my "skinny" strings over normal strand count low stretch materials. I make padded 12 st b50 flemish for my older bows.
