    Hi. I'm putting together some Easton Hexx's for full length Magnus Bullheads. When I spin test the bare shafts, one end is better the the other. Which end should be for nock? Which end for insert? I tried to find some arrow culling articles, but all the info was assuming you would cut the...

    So after some time screwing around with bare shaft tuning and sorting out some form issues I have 31 inch 340s with 14 grain inserts and 250 grain points tuning up awesome. My issue here is total arrow weight. 560 grains. I really would like to bump that weight up a good bit. Gpi on my gt hunter...

    Anyone else's experience like this? I finally get my shooting form down, its a repeatable sequence and its working, arrows going where I want them to. OK, its taken 3 years, but now I've got it! Couple of days later, pick up the bow, painstakingly go through the sequence ...whoosh arrow goes...

    Taking the plunge into ILF. I happened to come across a pre-owned riser I like. SF Forged plus in matte grey. Now I need to figure out limbs. I'll be setting this up with a plunger and magnetic rest. Debating between economy limbs like kaya k2, TT black max, or W&W Black Elk; or just spending...

    Picked up some tribute plates and a nice chunk of Fortal HR off eBay...my winter project is here! Bottom weighted and geometry like the elite but a more linear riser shape for easier machining on a handcrank mill. Should be a learning experience:brickwall: . suggestions welcome.

    . . . something I put off for an overly long time : a “classic” Mughal thumb ring . . . It’s made of Quebracho wood (otherwise known as the “axebreaker” wood), and finished of Tung oil & beeswax . Next stop . . . tomorrow I try it out & adjust for string clearance ! It feels good already...

    What do you guys use? If my nocks are to loose I use dental floss but it doesn't last to long before it gets frizzy.

    Hi all, I've been lingering on this forum for a few weeks reading many posts and taking in a lot of great info. I'm still a little unsure of one thing with my build, however and that's why I'm reaching out to you now. I bought a 50 year old recurve bow I found at a thrift store a few months...

    At one time, I had some photos of a jig-setup to make ILF wedges and I can't find them. Could someone send me a link about making the ILF wedges. Thanks and Merry Christmas

    Hey all, I have a Morrison 17" ILF Aluminum riser with SHORT KAP limbs on it. Last week I was tired of fooling with it and trying to find what was causing the noise so I took off the Centerest Flipper rest, the single brass pin sight pin with bracket and I checked to make sure I have teflon...

    Hi, and thanks for the add. I started out with a recurve that I was told was to small for me, so I weighed the options and decided to build a bow since most of my friends have. I made a bamboo backed hickory reflex deflex. Now that I have been tillering, when I put a string to further my process...

    What's up guys.... As some of you may know. I have my first WARF on the way. It is a Hoyt Spectra with TT black max med limbs. Supposed to be around 40# at 28" (which is my dl)... So i am looking for some help picking an arrow for this setup. It will be used only for hunting. I am wanting to get...

    question regarding an ILF riser build. laying out a 19 in laminated maple riser for an ILF bow. specifics: 1/4 in maple laminations glued with titebond 2 inches wide, 2&1/2 deep at the arrow pass, 1&3/4 wide the length of the riser even at the limb...

    I posted this on another thread and thought this build along might be interest to other warfers as it has a unique concept. "I did a unique warf job on my Rambo riser. I did the 1/8 plates as normal with the cutout for the ILF dovetail. But instead of epoxying them down or JB weld or screws, I...
