It takes around 18 seconds to turn an inventory of 14 unstrung willow shortbows and 14 bowstrings into 14 willow shortbows. With banking and bank presets, it is possible to string 2,800 bows an hour.

Bank presets are highly recommended for this method. Players can also put the unstrung bow on their action bar and assign a key bind, which can be the same button as the one for their preset. This can make the process even easier.

Using a portable fletcher can be useful for this method. It grants a 10% experience boost, as well as a 10% chance to string two bows at once, potentially speeding up the process. Portable fletcher locations can be found by asking in the "Portables" friends chat. A popular hosting location is the W84 Lumbridge Market. In free-to-play, portable fletchers can sometimes be found in the Grand Exchange on W3.
