I prefer push-pull anyway, but I'll confirm what everyone says that if you don't do it right it is just as dangerous as they say.
I've got lots of practice; I'm teaching a friend to make Flemish strings and the guy forgets something at least once a month, so when I go over I actually have to remind myself not to treat his bow like I do mine out of courtesy. It works fine if you know what you're doing.
Hope this link can help you string your bow : http://hunthacks.com/string-recurve-...hout-stringer/
Thanks all!

I usually use a stringer. But if I don't I use the push pull method when I can. I say when I can because my arms ain't very long and on some recurve bows I have trouble reaching the upper limb tip.
Besides, the stringer method is much much easier.

Default Stringing bow with notch on side of shoe

Watch that with a recurve. I saw one explode when the tip slipped off the shoe and hit the floor.

10 years later and I’m still using the step through method without fail and it’s still easy peasy kinda, I just don’t hunt with traditional or compound bows anymore due to health issues I have now but I do have 6 crossbows now.
