Lady Eibhlin,

Almost any online supplier will have a double-pocket bow stringer.

F/S  Sells the Neet Rtaditional Longbow Stringer.
#6419 NEET Traditional Long Bow Stringer

3 Rivers Sells several
Three Rivers Archery Bow Stringer ID #: 4247
Large Three Rivers Archery Stringer  ID #: 6117

Kustom Kings sells
Leather Bowstringer ID #: 2301

Lancaster Archer Supply sells the Bateman Stringer (Texas made by Earl
This is a recurve stringer but it would work for your longbow.  Unless you
just prefer to do business with Lancaster I would instead buy would of the
abouve cause they have pockets that will fit your bow better.

The 3 Rivers and Neet stringers are both top-notch and will work well for
your bow.  Do not buy one of the Pad type (saunders) or limb-saver type of
bow stringers as they do not work well or safely with truly traditional bows
as the pads have a tendency to slip.   Pad type stringers reallt need a flat
limb surface to work on and they really need some sort of reflext or recurve
to the limb.
