    Hey all, Recently, I have had difficulties with my string coming off of the inner portion of my sleeve. It is more evident when I wear a jacket of any kind. I never had a problem with this until a few weeks ago. I know that my grip is just right. I haven't made any adjustments to that from when...

    Pretty much everywhere I read about it the advice is to decrease "preload" by letting the bolts out if you have a long draw. And this may give a lighter draw at 30" or so largely because its lowers the initial draw weight and increases brace height. But isnt it actually making the stacking...

    I just purchased a second hand Hoyt Dorado recurve with 50# limbs for my first recurve and need to setup some arrows for it that I would want to use for hunting in the future. Honestly I’m not sure where to start when it comes to arrow spine, point weight, and arrow length and am looking for...

    Hi TradTalk, Longtime bowhunter and shooter, mostly compound but have been dabbling in trad for a few years. Found my way over from ArcheryTalk because I needed info on (s/q)warfing a bow. I have an early '90s era Golden Eagle Falcon Flame that blew a steel cable 15 years ago and has been...

    Hi Guys Long time looker, first-time poster. I have also posted this on archery talk with no real luck and I think maybe tradtalk would be more appropriate. I have been doing my head in searching and trying to figure out which EX1 limbs to buy to get my desired poundage, so I thought I would...

    I recently purchased a used Tradtech Titan III riser and some limbs. I am new to archery in general and specifically new to ILF. The limbs came in today and I am kind of at a loss about setting them up. Specifically on this TIII riser, there seem to be three spots that can be adjusted at each...

    My son has a draw length of 25”, and his bow has 25lb limbs. I measured the draw length from his anchor to the place the arrow passes the shelf at the back of the bow. So, the weight at anchor is 22lbs (verified on a hanging scale). He is shooting off the shelf, and 3 under. Any...

    Brothers in arms, need your advice. In the process of tuning my HEX8’s for hunting, I’m having some issues. As you can see from the bareshaft/fletched with pink 4x3’ from 18meters, they fly like I want them to. The bareshaft slightly weak and nock high. With either broadhead and 4x4’ feathers, I...

    This is my first post, and I apologize if I am asking too simple/lengthy of questions. As background, my 18 year old daughter and I are just getting into archery and we both have Samick Sage bows with fast flight strings. Hers is 35# and mine is 45#. We both draw 29.5”. We have been shooting...

    Hey tradtalk. Ive been shooting a reflex-deflex for a few months now. I have been listening to the push podcast and I like what I hear. The fixed crawl method seems like a good thing for the woods. But before I consider myself deadly enough for the woods, a few things need to change. Actually...

    I decided I am getting an ILF. I have a 28” draw. Want to shoot a max of #45. Plan on using this bow mostly for fun and 3-d. But with the capacity to take it to the woods if I want. I was thinking of getting a 19” satori with medium limbs. Make a 62” bow. I would consider a 21” riser as well...

    I hired a coach today. I was doing some bale work at my local range while a JOAD session was going on. My grouping were fairly tight, but I kept smackin' my lower lip with the string. The coach noticed and came over and watched me shoot. I told him I didn't have the flexibility to get my head...
