    So I’ve been watching this forum for a while. I’ve been shooting compounds for 30 years and over the last several years I’ve gotten sick of the technology. I want to be simple again. I have funds now to purchase my first traditional bow and have looked at expensive custom stuff from BW, thunder...

    Once again winter is upon us and instead of complaining about the cold, as I usually do, I figured I would provide the folks here on Tradtalk the benefits of my vast experience shooting in inclement weather. The topic today is how to dress. The biggest question I face at outdoor winter...

    I am heading to Lancaster Archery this weekend to pick up a set of Xcurve limbs. I want to put them on a 19" Tribute riser. I normally shoot and like 62" bows. I have a 29" draw. Which would be a better combination on a 19" riser, mediums or longs? I shoot long Dryad ACS RC limbs on my DAS 17"...

    OK, I have 30# limbs and 40# limbs for my Samick Journey. I go back and forth between them a little. but right now am using my #30s to work on form stuff. I was thinking, it would be cool to have something better than a plastic bag to store my extra limbs in, and then I saw this low end riser...

    Alright guys my old bows have had training wheels and I've shot with a release. I shoot guns on a simi-professional level so the compound bow was very easy to pick up however I'm about to start on a brand new journey and need a bow for hunting that is mostly wood and not a modern design. I'm...

    Well, I am about the embark on my first Warfing project thinks to Steve Long, who sent me this left handed wood riser from an old Indian compound bow. He also sent me a link to a ebay sight where I was able to get some nice wood riser ILF plates. The problem is how to attach them. My preference...

    I'm shooting 32lb w&w pro accent limbs. They are great, but I'm thinking of upgrading in poundage and quality. What in Hoyt or W&W brand would be a step up in quality?

    I shoot a 55 pound longbow and am looking at going to a 260 grain head and Byron Ferguson heavy hunter shafts full length. Should I go with heaviest spine?

    I don't know much about ILF systems. I have a friend that wants to start hunting with a bow and arrow. We were talking over the phone and he asked about purchasing a bow. He has not shot in years. I told him that he was probably best off with an ILF rig because he could purchase a riser and...

    Hi, I have been fighting my TP for many years. I did some “desesiblation” (is it the word?) last month, by drawing-aiming and letting down. Then start shooting at 7 meters on a reduced Indoor target until feel confidence then move farther. I’m now at 16 meters. I shot by a combination of...

    My recurve stringer was not working as well as I liked for my longbow. It was not so bad for stringing, but the bow and string would catch tight on the loop when unstringing. I decided to try a tip to tip stringer. This is the ticket for a longbow. If you have made a recent change to longbow...

    I struggle with short draw / target panic / snap shooting (I don't really know the differences). I searched the forums and found several great threads. But I want to make sure I can maximize my training time. So here's what it sounds like I should do: 1. Blank bale with really slow, thoughtful...

    With 5 months until my next important tournament, I decided to try something really radical for me -- learn to shoot with two eyes open. Two eyes are not necessary for pick-a-point target shooting or stringwalking, so I would generally shut my non dominate eye after drawing. Since I am getting...

    I'm considering buying a finger compound bow. I know a few of you guys use them for form training. I know nothing about them. The concept makes sense. I guess. What let off should I be looking for? If I shoot 40-50# trad. what weight compound? What min. axle length? I have a 30.5"draw. Models...
