Is there any benefit to tuning your arrow by thickening or thinning the strike plate vs cutting and point weight? I read about Rick Welsch talking about making your bow shoot where you point but says he doesn't bare shaft tune?
I "stole" this off another thread, where Glynn posted it.
I think it's a valid question deserving not to get buried & lost.
I'm also curious to read answers on it.
MY nut says trajectory, even speeds all same, heavier drops sooner.
What say you all?
I watched a video of Aron Snyder talking...
Been awhile since I’ve posted... I’ve been shooting a Black Widow PSA 43# at 28”... I’ve been shooting legacy 2117 with 125gr magnus broadheads... I want to go to the Simmons shark broadheads and I’m wondering what would be the heaviest head I can shoot with these arrows... if I decide to go to...
It's bow and arrow again
I started now hunting with a recurve. I'm pretty sure they was all we had back then. That because compound bows, that became expensive. Up until last year I had not now hunted in a few years but decided to finish a bow I started building about 40 years ago. The bow...
Hi all, could someone please advise me on wooden arrows for my 1972 Damon Howatt Hunter 35#/28”. I cannot find manufacturers recommendations/limit, I don’t want to go too low, I draw 26” shooting to 55 yards max, field 3D only and like to be point on at 25-30 yards.
A while back somebody posted a tool for calculating arrow spine in relation to arrow length, draw weight, etc,etc
You punch in the numbers and it gave you your arrow spine estimate. If anybody has that link, if you could post it Id appreciate it.
Im trying to figure how much spine Im losing by...
So, I've been shooting barebow for a little over a year now. My rig is a Samick Avante with an 18oz weight in the lowest stab bushin, and Axiom 26lb limbs. Arrows are full length Predator2 800's with 44 grain half outs.
I recently upgraded my rest from a cheap $10 bolt on flipper with a lot...
In considering arrows, how much difference in performance will there be between an arrow listed as .005 straightness and one that lists .003 straightness? Specifically comparing Easton Legacy Trad shafts to Easton Axis 5mm Trad.
Can anyone share good arrow setups for 3D?
Currently shooting DAS with [email protected] limbs, DL 29.75”, 30.25” Easton trad 500, 50 grain insert, and 150 grain tip. Would maybe like to go lighter or with a bit longer arrow.
I use Easton's method of calculating FOC, where their arrow length is from bottom of
nock groove to BOP (back-of-point). Given my aluminium arrow adapters are about 1-1/2" long,
where would you place the BOP?
I am switching back to carbon arrows and have the following bundles of wood arrow components available. Not willing to split up outside of listed bundles below.
Glue on points and nocks: Sold
- (2) 190 grain Ace hex heads
- (13) 190 grain field points
- (14) 160 grain field points
- (6) 160...
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...
Anyone ever use a piece of colored tape on the arrow near the tip that lines up with the rest at full draw? Kind of A visual draw check? Just thinking for some practice sessions or leave on one arrow in a set to just verify form.
Here is a quote from LBG, made in a recent post that I don't want to hijack. I'm interested in more conversation, so am posting here.
I am trying to get functionally similar arrow trajectory out of (2) bows. I shoot 3 under with a fairly deep hook and a fairly high anchor...
Is there a rule of thumb regarding how much length cut off an arrow equals “x” amount of point weight reduction.
Something like reducing arrow length by .25” is the same as reducing point weight by 25 grain? Totally just throwing that out as an example.
So my problem is I am shooting a 100 grain brass glue on insert with a 155 single bevel glue on grizzly broadhead. I ordered 160 grain glue on field points to tune my arrows with because thats the closest thing I could match to the broadhead. Well after I got my bareshaft flying straight I got...
I wonder if anyone could give me a recommendation for a wrap around type recurve rest/plunger button combination to fit a Border Tempest 23" riser please?
I'm using a Mybo hotwire magnetic rest on a 25" Tempest at the moment, with a Shibuya plunger, for my Olympic Target setup, but just fancy...
I am looking into getting some Aluminum Easton Legacy arrows for upcoming hunting season. Now is set at 45# takedown recurve with a desired arrow length of 32” I’ve got a 31” draw length and am thinking 32-33” arrows. I shoot a 135 grain Zwickey broad head and am having trouble deciding...
