Dacron is the material, flemish is he style of the string. Most older bows can only shoot Dacron strings. But if the bow is made for FF, I'd go that route.

Yep, What Bob said. Dacron 50 is a common material for making a string. You can get/make a flemish twist string, ; or get/make an endless loop string. Fast flight strings are strings made with fast flight material. Much lighter than dacron. To use a fast flight string, your bow must have tips made with certain materials like bone, horn, syntheics, etc. Wood tips generally will not handle fast flight strings.
