    For some reason I've never tried carbons. I've used predominately aluminum and occasionally woodies. I shoot bows in the 45-55lb range and the shelf center cut distance can vary dramatically from my ASL's to my past center recurves. I draw 28 1/2 and have been shooting BOP shafts at 29 1/4. Also...

    I am looking for some advice with choosing some carbon shafts for my better halves compound. The bow is a Kinetic Mirage set at 32lb @ 27inch draw length. She has not long had it and has been shooting Avalon Tyro shafts 800 spine. We have had 4 of the dozen so far split at the nock end which is...

    I'll try and keep this short... I have a right hand Hill Style longbow. #60 @28, I draw 26.5". I have carpal tunnel and have been plagued with torquing my bow because of a lack of grip strength. However building up the grip and making a kind of locator grip has helped. Also I started heeling...

    Hello All, What's the best glue for fletching carbon shafts? Opinions please.... Preferred prep method? Best glue for feathers? Best glue for vanes? Thank you in advance for your knowledge and expert advice. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    After I crest my arrows I put a clear arrow wrap over top of it to protect the paint, my only issue is that I'm terrible at putting the wraps on. I've tried all the tips from using a mouse pad to rolling it and it just doesn't work for me. Is there a clear dipping lacquer I could put overtop my...

    Hi guys, Off on vacation and only take down bow in my collection is a Hoyt Avalon Plus Oly recurve. Dont have space to transport one piece bows. Don't want to shoot my Eastons ACEs into cardboard or wands (narrow stick placed vertically in the ground) so think I will adjust the rest and shoot...

    For those of you that has shot or owned both, what difference did you see between them? Worth the extra $$$$? $220 vs $400, unless I can find a used set. Noise, feel, vibrations, and speed.....

    I'm trying to decide which limbs to put on my 19" Hoyt Dorado, any suggestions? I want a medium limb so I end up with a 62" bow and I want 45-50#. Also if I go with the tropics will the 68/36 limbs be the ones to get me at 62" and 45-50lbs on the Dorado?

    Sorry folks...no cool video or anything...just sharing what's been a real eye opener and a real pleasurable experience. My 66"/32# Falco Force Carbon D-Longbow came with no strike-plate and I had ordered it with the window cut to center...and have been shooting nothing but wood arrows off...

    I've had trouble with Fletchtite Platinum sticking to my Beman Classics. Gorilla Super Glue sticks great but is really difficult to remove when I re-fletch. I'm not keen on using tape or arrow wraps. What is a good glue for carbons that holds the fletching well yet is at least sort of easy to...

    Before I get blasted, I have done a lot of research on this but am battling to find the correct size for the footing. I have found a place that recommends sizes of aluminiums for well known carbons, but I have X-weaves that are not popular (for a reason I fear!), so there is no recommended size...

    As per title. What do you use to remove the branding from carbon arrows. I have tried thinners but no joy. Thanks

    So I'm shooting 2016s which spine at .531 out my 55#longbow @ 28", these are 30" and tune well with 125gr points. Also got some 2213s which spine at .460 with 100gr inserts and 140gr points, also at 30". These also tune out well. I got hold of some Carbon Force X weave 100s which are 29". these...

    So I am getting back into ILF bows and have been shooting my Excel and 45# limbs a lot. A couple weeks ago I ordered some #50 TT BM wood/glass limbs from lancaster. They were backordered then and now they are not expected to ship until the end of August. I am getting impatient and thinking...

    I have some Carbon Xpress 200's, they are within a 1/2" of my woodies and when I draw them in my recurve with broadheads they will work. My recurve bow is 55# @28" and I anchor at about 30". The carbons are from a Matthews Q2XL that is 60# that I don't use anymore and was hoping to use the...
