    I'm sure this has been discussed ad nauseam but there is sooo much information out there, hoping for some insight and clarity from you veteran bowmen. Reach - I'm 6'1", I think my reach is around 31". Bow Length/weight - 62" recurve, 45 lb. I'm looking for a flat-flying, super accurate, and...

    I would like to begin making my first set of wooden arrows. I am hoping to find out whether or not there is a decent place to start. Can I take any information from my carbon arrows that are perfectly tuned and apply it to the creation of a set of wood arrows? I am sure that there is no perfect...

    I'll keep it short, as your thoughts are most important. I have a new longbow and I'm trying to get my arrow flight so it looks good. The bow is a 60" Great Plains longbow with a low wrist grip, 40# draw weight at my draw length, and simple calf hair rest. My arrows are PORPOISING like crazy...

    I have 11 of these. Used. Five are fletched 3 @ 4". The rest are bare shaft. They are 28 3/4" long from nock groove to end of carbon. I was fine shooting them at my draw length until I decided to hunt, and then the BH's were way too close to my fingers! Nocks and inserts included. To your...

    I want to use a 16 lb draw weight bow to focus on form, hook, release, etc. In addition, I hope this practice will help build strength after a long period of inactivity. What arrows should I use? The bow is a 66" takedown recurve and it can easily handle my 27.5" draw as it increases. Material...

    I imagine this question has been asked before, so apologies if it is a duplicate or has been discussed many times over. I have been bowhunting for about 35 years, 30 of those with a compound. I recently picked up an ILF recurve and have really enjoyed getting back into traditional. I also...

    I have a 19" Satori riser and just ordered DAS long limbs rated 40lbs on a 19" riser. I have been shooting this riser with Hoyt medium 45lb carbon limbs to this point, but at my draw length I am pulling 53lbs. I am currently shooting 400 spine arrows with a 150grain field point, they are heavy...

    My 13 year old is shooting more and I think it’s time I get him some arrows that are closer to the spine he a actually needs..he is currently shooting approximately 20# and my mismatched leftover 400s.. I’m not sure what spine he needs? 700-800, idk what the aluminum equivalent is? I’m not...

    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...

    I’m completely new to Traditional but I’ve been bowhunting for 12 years so I’m not completely green. I need opinions on the best arrows I should get to learn to shoot and eventually hunt with. I’ve always used Gold Tip so should I stick with that with trad? I’m believe in “buy once cry once”...

    I’ve been able to tune off the shelf with full length arrows and point weight, is there any reason to cut my arrows down? My DL is 28 1/2” and I shoot instinctive.

    Beman Centershots are the only traditional arrows my local shop sells, and they're the only arrows I've used. They've held up extremely well to the abuse I subjected them to in my first few months of learning this craft. To make a long story short, I'm getting a Bitz fletching jig for Christmas...

    Is the beman arrows still made? Looks like Lancaster only caries the trad shaft and the white shaft. Looking on Easton’s web page they have the 6.5 instead. Just curious Chad

    Thinking about giving a small diameter [ .166 ] shaft a try. I'm used to shooting 5/16 shafts. This is out of pure curiosity just to see if I like them or see any advantage in accuracy with them. The problem is I have been shooting the same set up for so long, it seems like any time I make a...
