    Hey guys as I am in holiday i spent some time fine tuning my bows for the coming hunting opening. I could shoot through my chrono 2 bows with rather "conventional" limb design : a Border Black Douglas with bolt on CVX synthetic core limbs 19" riser/ 66" bow ( my 3D bow) and a Sasquatch SS...

    So my dog killed my chrono last year and I haven't replaced it yet. Shooting my 3 current bows, all of which are 50-52lbs at my DL. Yet all three require different arrow spines/tip weight. All are cut past center. So is it fair to assume that the bow requiring the stiffest spine is shooting...

    It's cold outside so that leaves me to my archery nerdiness confined to the shop. I've been working on form and just focusing on blind bale. I pulled out the Chrono and started shooting through it. Yikes... My average range is about 4 fps. If I really focus I can hold at a common 180. Without...

    Surprises too the high side... I recently divested myself of all my bows but one...yet still had my Robertfishes Custom made for me Amberboo Core/Black Glass ILF limbs kicking around with no ILF riser to be mounted on and felt bad about that...so I grabbed a used 25" Hoyt Horizon ILF riser...

    We have been having a discussion of some chrono numbers on another post. There are questions whether the chrono is measuring correctly. So how do we know if a chrono is correct? The obvious first choice is to have a primary standard, something that always flies at the same velocity that can be...

    It's gonna be a tough call which bow I load up in the truck for Saturdays Club 3D. I made the mistake of trying my full length .700 Spine GT Ultralights w/ 80gr Glue-in Points (TAW of 300grns) off my 62"/42# DAS Elite last night and was shocked at two things... 1. That the bare shaft seemed to...

    Why is it I'm in love with a set-up until I run it through the chrono? Why are the only limbs I can get up to a decent speed punishing to shoot? I know in my head that the speed probably doesn't make all that much difference, but damn if I don't like shooting a bow through that hellish little...

    Anybody tried one of the chrono apps on your phone. I installed the Bowometry app on my phone today and took to range to play. I took a bow/arrow combination that I had shot through chrono at L A S( as a control ) and also the border hex 5 that I just bought. took some adjusting of the phone...

    My chrono has to be used in good daylight. This can be a problem. Cloudy all day today. Has anyone figured out how to make them work with artificial light?

    I'm setting up my hunting rig and would like it as quiet as possible. My hearing is shot, so noise levels are tough for me. Someone posted a great post about shooting at a horizontal line and adjusting brace from results. I'm going to try that one too. I was just wondering if anyone on here has...

    I been wanting to test the speed of The Beast and some of my other bows. I wonder if any of you guys in SF Bay Area have a chrono and I see how fast the Beast is truly is. Maybe it would come out to be the fastest recurve ever, because that bow shoots scary fast. A speed I never seen in another...

    Was playing with the chronometer the other day. I found out that my Carbon One 550 spine were just as fast as my ACE 570 spine. Then I shot ACE 570 with 4“ Duravanes average of 190 fps. After that the same arrows with 3” FFP vanes. They came out average of 195fps. Not bad with a 1 inch...

    Hi you all more knowledgeable than I, on the warfs. I just chronoed my black bear warf with medium carbon plus limbs. I know this will be kind of vague but here we go. The bow is in the upper 40#s drawing 29" 530 grain arrow shooting at 170 fps. Does this sound about right? Will be hunting deer...
