Flax is used to make Bow string which is used for training Fletching, this makes the item in big demand. Using the spell Spin Flax is a less tedious way to make those bow strings rather than spinning them at a Spinning wheel, often allowing for low profit while also gaining pretty good Crafting and Magic experience at the same time.

To make bow strings as effectively as possible, withdraw all Astral and Nature runes from your bank and have one bow string and the stack of flax in your bank. Fill your bank with bank fillers and move the flax next to deposit inventory button, this will allow for quicker banking overall.

Step 1. Withdraw your 25 Flax from the bank. Step 2. Cast Spin Flax 5 times. Step 3. Click the bank and deposit your inventory and withdraw another 25 Flax Step 4. Press ESC and repeat step 1-4.
