    I hope I picked the right forum to ask this question. A friend of mine gave me the archery kit he had originally bought for his wife. Since she didn't seem that interested and he wants a shooting buddy, he gave me the whole thing for a nominal fee (some technical help with a project he was...

    Hi there, I'm pretty much new to archery, shot a couple of times with cheap bows and really liked it. I decided to make a bow with the gamemaster 2 riser and the tradtechs 50 pound long carbons (maybe too heavy for a starter but if it ain't a killer, I'm not shooting it!), and would love some...
  3. The Philosophical Archer
    Hello trad talk A little about myself, I am a barebow turned olympic recurve archer and I've been shooting for awhile now and have come to love the sport. However, with the amount of time I've been shooting I have come to realize that what I thought was one and the same (traditional archery...

    I stumbled across this video explaining the archer's paradox with slow motion video. I'm a noob in archery, so if this is beyond simple for you, maybe it's something that you can show to your un-archery-minded friends.

    Many on here are familiar with our own CubeFX's fantastic leather pocket quivers He was kind enough to let me send him some Cape Buffalo Skin and some Warthog Ivory and than he did his magic :) This is what he came up with and all I can say is that I'm very pleased Thank you Aydar of Red...

    I am curious if anyone else has seen this or knows any additional details. I am curious to know exactly what she did. It would seem she had distance marks on the tab maybe something like 30 for 30 meters etc. Since all 3 mens barebow members of the USA team are on this board maybe they can shed...

    What's the deal with bow strings? what kind and how much to wax is best to use for starting out? And how do I know what makes a string a good fit for my bow or not?

    I've been shooting recurve about 3weeks now. When developing my anchor and just getting used to the bow I had alot if wrist slap. After a few sessions the slap lessened but was still there. Ive been working on keeping my elbow out and keeping slap to a minimum but Now whenever I shoot, I'm...

    I have decided what my definition of an archer is. If you can score all four arrows on the 7 yard stacked dots and score all four arrows on the 80 yard walk up. You are an archer. Now want to decide what I think a "good" archer is by the score. We got pretty good idea what a great archer...

    A friend and his wife have become fascinated with traditional archery. They never shot compound. He had a beautiful American Archery Flash that he bought at a garage sale years ago for $5 sitting around. It is 21 @ 28". They came over last weekend to discuss shooting and to learn the basics...

    When I went to my closet last fall and pulled out my bows after many years had passed, I started shooting everyday and have only missed three days since. I began shooting like I had in the past, split finger concentrate on the spot and release. I would have bouts of target panic spasms that...

    I did an Ebay search for this book and came up with 250ish bucks. Just looked at Amazon and can't find anything in that price range. Looks like I could pick it up for 64 bucks. Is that the same book by Kisik Lee? I don't care about hard or soft cover. Bowmania

    I joined TradTalk a few months back as I had just recently taken up Archery again after several decades. I have found this blog very helpful on getting up to speed on how best to re-learn long forgotten skills and also acquire all the knowledge that helps one hone those skills. THANK YOU ALL...

    After being on the back burner for a couple of years, and the recent discussions regarding Howard Hill, I've decided to resurrect work on a book I was intending to write on the life and achievements of Horace Ford ... here's the preface .... what do you think, is it something I should finish or...

    I was recently sent a PM asking about the book Total Archery, Inside the Archer by Kisik Lee and Tyler Benner. This book describes the KSL Method that I am learning and has been occasionally referenced in form threads on TradTalk. I had used various chapters that I found on-line but had not...

    It has been a solid year since I switched from wheelie bow (mountain bike bow as Redbow calls em) to somewhat trad (metal risers and carbon arrows lol) I remember picking up my first WARF here, a dozen easton gamegetters, some heavy 130-225 grain tips, and some 34lb limbs. This was after failing...

    I'm new around here and I'm eagerly awaiting my first bow, a Hoyt Pro Medalist that I just bought off the trading blanket from Greenarrow. Finally, I can stop being OCD about bow shopping, at least for a little while! Next on my list are arrows, finger tab, a target, and a book or two. So I'm...
