    Can't help but notice a large number of grey heads at some of the high level shoots I've been watching. It appears like archery might be a very age friendly sport? I can't think of any other sport off hand where the number of older gents is in such high contention. As a guy in his late...

    How has your bow poundage changed as you age? In my 20's I shot 70 lbs on my recurves and longbows. In my 30's I shot about 60 lbs, and in my 40's i dropped down to about 52 lbs. I turn 50 this year, and i am shooting about 48 lbs. I can still pull and shoot those heavier bows, but they are...

    In the spirit of honoring those who came before us... Note the depiction of multiple bow types (D longbows, short curved bows, longer recurved bows), archers leaning into the bow, dynamic follow-throughs, holding arrows in the bow hand with points up (just like in modern tribal groups)...

I've got so say- I've got a couple takedowns and this bow is super, super smooth and intuitive to shoot- much...

    Hi all-I'm new to the site and have a question about my bow. it is a Damon Howatt, 69", LH, 35#@28" Ser.# EM6088. I've had it for 25-30 years and have been told it shoots faster than its weight would indicate. My previous recurve was also a DH-34#@28", and I believe 69". no ser.# model was the...

    I have almost always shot medium 44# XQ-1's on my DAS Hunter making a 55#@30" bow. I also have a pair of medium 40# Winex that presumably make a 51# bow using my current set-up. For whatever reason, I seem to shoot a little better with the Winex limbs. My groups are a little tighter and include...
