    A bow has to speak to me from a distance, what is the soul of the bow, what did the designers envision and what was in their heart and mind when developing it? Do the specs fit the way I shoot, the arrows and tips I like, and is it ergonomic for me. When it speaks to me, than I know I can...

    I know many people here shoot different styles and equipment. How do you choose which style to stick with? Do you bounce around or try to stay true to one method/setup? If you compete do you use whatever gives you the best scores? Or, do you shoot what you enjoy more even if you score lower? If...

    Which would you choose Hoyt Exel riser in 21" or Trad Tech Titan III in 19" riser? My goal is a 64" recurve with one set of limbs for in door leagues and 3D and another set for hunting. I will shoot Nap center rest. Anyone with experience with these?
