    I'm looking to compare limb mass between as many sets of preferably medium ILF limbs around 35# for comparison purposes. All I need is the mass of the limb and the weight of the tip placed on the scale with the butt resting on the table. Measured in grams preferably. Limbs I'm specifically...

    The general opinion of target archers better than me seem to be that a longer brace light lets them shoot more accurately. And the bows they win competitions with tend to suggest they are right. Maybe this refers to more traditional bows only - Im not sure. But Im wondering what the actual...

    I mean practical accuracy for target shooting or hunting. I realize that a machine could shoot most any bow accurately. Part of what got me thinking about it was looking at Kegans Omega bows and I notice Kegan suggest his Imperial over his Original for target shooting but he says the Omega has...

    I've been shooting for a while now, I always looked at the carbon arrow charts on three rivers and such and bought my arrow shafts based off that.. To me they seem to fly well seemingly straight? Whenever I have one go slightly off course I blame it on my form or something different I did. I...

    I've been practicing since last winter using full length 400 spine arrows with 125g tips. I'm wanting to order a nice set of arrows for the upcoming season though. I'm shooting a 45# Fleetwood Archery Monarch (rebranded sage from what I can tell) I have a 27.5 inch draw, according to the...

    I have heard that a fast arrow is more finicky and not as accurate then a slower, heavier arrow???? I have heard this dozens of times. All else being equal, if the bow / arrow combination is properly spined and tuned, why is this supposedly so? (Not talking about a windy day, or arrow being...

    Do any of you find that you're consistently more accurate taking one knee vs regular standing position? I do. Don't know why. I have to cant the bow way more kneeling... maybe that helps?

    I realise this guy is shooting a low poundage bow, but how is he loading the arrows so fast? It doesnt appear to be a special nock, but I could be wrong.

    I've shot a few traditional bows now, both recurve and longbow, the question arose, what makes some of these bows inherently more accurate. Alot of bows shoot well, but there are some that seem to almost shoot themselves, what exactly does this. I have some guesses, but would be interested in...

    I have a Titan that is set up with a plunger and flipper rest. It shoots great and was easy to tune. When I switch to another recurve that I have set up to shoot off of the shelf, It takes me awhile to get zeroed in again. It seems that I will need to shoot either both bows using elevated rest...

    It seems there's a whole spectrum of archers here, from longbow to hi-tech recurve, bare-bow to sights, even those that shoot both stickbow and compound. It also seems that "the man with one bow" is a relative rarity. To me, the ultimate goal of the archer, whether hunter or target, is to shoot...

    I've heard guys say that heavier slower arrows were more accurate.I always thought it was just because they thought they needed heavy arrows for penetration. I've been shooting my 50 lb Dalaa all summer with the same 360 grn. arrows for 3D.They bareshaft to 20 yds perfect.Today getting ready to...

    I know that compounds are more accurate in general, especially at longer distances. But I wonder how much of that is due to all the higher-tech add-ons versus the bow design itself. If you took a modern day metal riser recurve, added a sight, a prong-style or drop-away rest and used a release...

    Three attributes, but the third one doesn't seem to fit with the other two. Unless of course, if it were a Black Wid wid, wid.... well you know what I mean. Parsell... you stay out of this, LOL. Anyways, here was a bow advertised that said just that. The 'Field Archery' part is what got me. I...

    do any of ya archaeologist type or archery historians know if the archery equipment in _Apocalypto_ was accurate in representing that used in the period? The archery was extreme violance but interesting from an archer's point of view. the arrows represented were of a hugh diameter and a yard...

    I know I've heard more than one reference to micro-diameter shafts...Axis/Beman...as being "twitchy" and more difficult to get good arrow flight from. In my personal experience, some of my bows seem to like 'em and some don't and once I find a point weight/spine combination that works I don't...

    Guys, I was wondering....(usually this is dangerous). My recurve at the moment stacks at about 2-3#/" at my DL. If I had a smoother bow stacking at say 1#/" at my DL, surely my up and down will get better even though I'm not drawing to exactly the same point every time? My form is good (good...

    I was thinking about how James "Joe Black" riser has very little deflex and that led me to think about the whole Reflex/Deflex trend in longbows lately. Deflex just exists to make the reflex more stable, right. Meanwhile HH and John Shultz both believed that "string follow" bows, that is bows...
