    Just writing to let everyone know that Bear Archery really came through for me and took care of my bow problem without asking a question. I am so proud to finally own a Bear Kodiak Takedown Recurve and when I had a problem, I was absolutely crushed. Bear did me a real solid, and I am a customer...

    I have a dozen uncut .231 adjustable static inserts from Ethics Archery for sale (no trades). These weigh 175 grains full length and they can be cut down to 50 grains. The lip opens outward and takes 5/16" field points. Two were glued in with low temp hot melt and shot a few times while the...

    Posted this on the other site as well. Want to give kudos to CD Got my WF21 in the mail today. I sold my WF19 and some other things to fund it. I can tell you this thing is worth every penny. Loved my 19 but love this one even more. It balances so well without any weights and so dead and solid...

    Not sure if there is already a thread out there but figured I would start one. Most of us are not doing this to survive which means we are doing it for the love. My focus is not on the target.. it is inward. It is a meditation. I love the way it feels to draw back a traditional bow. Tension...

    It was a year ago I started back into Traditional archery. I got a lot of help and info here and even some free gear. Gear I didn’t need I passed on to others. I am really having fun, I started out with a Samick Sage and now have a few other bows. Recently I bought my first longbow then a second...

    Wondering how many of you have kids into it and how that all came about. Did you push them into it? Coax them? Or did they just naturally want to do what you are doing? My son is 5. I'd love for him to one day be shooting side by side with me. Maybe a little premature but for christmas I bought...

    CD Archery posted a new riser to their already extensive offerings of top quality ILF risers. They already have a 19”, 25”, 25” lite, 27” and my favorite the 29”. I have owned all but the lite and a 19. I still have a 25” and my 2 29” risers. The 21” will be in my shop as soon as they ship...

    I shoot every day and hunt as often as possible. Even thought I have killed deer with my recurve I still don’t really know anything about archery. Is there a book or YouTube channel or PDF or something that I could read to learn the basics? Thanks for the help.

    I’ll keep my story short. I had ordered a bow from Jim at Centaur Archery, you know that once in a lifetime dream bow that you work your whole life to get. But as life or bad luck would have it, I fell upon some hard times. I won’t go into all the personal details. All I can say is thank God for...

    Hey everyone! Its been about 20 years since i've shot a bow, and prior to yesterday, everything i shot was a compound bow. I picked up a martin freedom recurve yesterday, 40lb draw @28", 60" AMO, and im almost guilty about how little I paid for it. I also bought some carbon express predator's...

    Hello, I bought a second hand recurve bow in June and have been shooting it ever since. About two months ago I started to develop tennis elbow in my left arm (right handed). When this started I spent some time trying to figure out why I was getting tennis elbow. My bow does have a bunch of...

    Hey all just entered the traditional side of things here last week. I bought a 69” 35# Ben Pearson palamino last summer but never got around to shooting it. Well seems how I “got” the coronavirus. I started shooting it over my 10 day quarantine. I’ve only messed around with a recurve in my...

    *if this is in the wrong place please move to correct sub* Hello, I purchased a set of Bosen limbs last year off of Ebay and have been quite happy with them. I went back to see if I could order another set in a different poundage, and don't seem them on Ebay anymore. Looking around the...

    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...

    Any thoughts on the 29" beast of a riser? Anybody shooting one? I'm interested in getting one but I'm wondering if the additional length and the mass would help my short draw length of 26". I will be putting medium limbs on it, so not sure if 72" of bow length is going to be any advantage for...
