You want to get it down to some one who deals with archery i your area

I am from the UK and have built my own Bow, my local archery shop was really helpful with fitting the corect strings

Try google? might help

Well, a quick internet search turned it up as a polymer. You could search froogle for it.
Otherwise, mcmaster carries vectran rope... you might try to buy a few feet of .25" or slightly higher, and de-braid it. (It's tripple strand)
Or, I could mail you a few feet of some 550 (aka. para) cord I have lying around. It's a bowstring-diameter nylon rope that can hold 550 lbs.

yeah just google it and order it over the net

they are fairly simple to re string you just need to get the right tension on the bow and then hook on the strings or how ever you shall fasten them
