    I'm pretty new to recurve archery. I'm shooting a Gillo G1 27" with 42# long Hoyt Integra limbs. The riser and limbs were purchased used from different vendors. I have a 32.5" draw length. When I first put the bow together I turned out the tiller bolts 3 turns to lighten the draw weight a little...

    Any new limbs coming down the line? Preferably from the US? I have some Uukhas now just looking for something different. I heard a rumor that someone from the states was coming out with limbs better than the Uukhas.

I am a right handed shooter and I broke my left shoulder blade, 5 ribs on the left side 1 on the right, partially deflated my left lung, shattered my left leg, had two vertebrae where I broke the rib off there, can't remember what they called...

    The gods have been shining upon me this year. After too much work and very little play I got on the list of the first run of CD Archery's new WFX (extreme) riser. The riser was redesigned to push the weight forward from 5% to 13% with the addition of a weight kit. The kit is going to come in 2.5...

    I have long wanted to add popular entry level bows to my testing database. I now have an archery club that is going to partner with me to do that. Their interest is so that they have better information available to them when they recommend first bows to archers participating in the large...

    Well the clocks go forward on Sunday so I'm actually starting to dream about seeing grass again soon. With that comes the much missed 3D season, woohoooo. For all my iBO friends, what events are on your calendar, what bow set up do you plan on using and what class are you shooting? I plan on...

    Thanks to everyone who has given me advice on this method. I know I had lots of questions. I think I am finally getting the hang of this and advice about things like string blur/alignment are starting to make sense and I can now get arrows that previously only went left to shoot down the...

    I am very new to archery. I recently got a Martin XR Recurve (20#) and the 3 arrows included to practice with. I tried the little arrow rest that came with it but it flew off; it was terribly flimsy anyway. Now I shoot off the shelf, but gradually the bottom feather parts of the arrows come off...

    I have been shooting a 35 pound PSE stalker for about 4 days now, its my first bow and the string it came with is sort of falling apart already. I think its the part called the serving, where I nock the arrow. Anyways, I'm thinking maybe I did not properly string the bow or maybe its a problem...

    Got my new setup put together yesterday, having an issue with the grip angle. PSE X-appeal, I bought a Jager low grip for it and even with that it is still really high wrist. I tried some grip tape and that would create a funky pressure point on my hand. Good news is the RCX100 limbs are...

    Hey guys, short update: I have a Hoyt Excel 21" riser and medium 32# PSE Competition limbs coming in, both bought off ArcheryTalk. There's a local shop here who can fletch some arrows for me, though I think that's about as far as they can help me since they mostly service and sell compounds...
