    Does anyone know of someone who can refinish a bow. I've got an Elburg cheetah that I've thought of messing around with this season. It is beat up from the feet up and needs some pretty serious TLC. Any ideas?

    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...

    Hey I just picked up a bear mini mag warfed riser. I put some 45 lb dryad acs legend recurve limbs on it. First off this thing shoots lights out, smooth drawing. Quiet, throws a 540 grain arrows fast. Absolutely love it.. so it’s just over 60 inches. I have brace height at 7&3/4 . Does that...

    Just finished selling a house my wife and I flipped. I’ve already got a barebow setup from my man Steve. However I’d like to spend some of the money from the house on a one and done hunting bow. I’m pretty confident I can be a one bow guy (for now). I have a 32 inch draw, I’m looking for...

    Hi everyone! I was hoping you guys might be able to help me out in IDing this bow? It’s fairly basic in design, but the information has been picked removed/worn off. I think the main thing that someone might key in on is the scalloped edge triangle stickers that have been removed. I think these...

    Hello. I am new to the forum. I collect vintage recurve bows and recently obtained a vintage bow by Sartain. I searched the web and didn't come up with much except that they might have been made in Michigan. The model I have is a CC-1167.

    So I have a nice bow I would like to sell and I want to make sure I do it right and everyone is happy. I live in Canada and I imagine that it will likely get shipped to the States. With that being said, how does everyone pack it to make sure it does not get damaged in shipping? or how or what do...

    I have a 25# Ragim Victor bow that was my first bow. I've sustained some shoulder injuries since then and have a bunch of health issues too. There's a finite limit to how much I can strengthen myself and I fatigue more easily than most people and my body simply doesn't operate like most people's...

    So on both my local outdoor and indoor range there are racks built with hooks or pegs to hang your bow on while retrieving your arrows. They are clearly for compounds. Is it save to hang my recurve on those racks? The only way I can do it is to put the peg/hook between the limb and string (sorry...

    Well, you shoot your wife's patio table of course 😉 It was muddy out so I set my target on her table on the patio. I was shooting at 10 then 20 and 25 yards and doing ok. I decided to step back to 30 and whack! I thought I just ruined a $12.00 arrow. Turns out those Black Eagle vintage arrows...

    Aloha All, I am preparing for a goat hunt and just wanted to get opinions on which bow I should use: 45#52" 1972 Kodiak Magnum or 55# 58" Centaur Longbow. I feel equally proficient with both out to my max shot distance of 20 yards. The difference in draw weight is negligible for me as both are...

    I am looking at purchasing this DAS dalaa takedown, and haven’t been able to find info on it because it’s camo (current models show solid color risers) and I would like to know when this model riser was made and also what the current value may be.

    Bought new in summer of 2019, used to shoot for fun in my driveway, took on 2 sits for hogs and threw it in my bag on travel for work so I could shoot away from home. Nothing wrong with it. Just shoot my 66" bows more (6'6" guy so the 62" just a little too small for me). TYD 700$ (Venmo...

    Hi all, I have a 60" take down longbow, which I'll be shooting GAP. If I'm not mistaken, this can't be used in Longbow-class under WA? since it is a 3-piece take down and it is to short? So I'd be home in barebow? What in 3D-category? I do not think I fit in Longbow? Can i fit in...
