compound

    I've never shot a compound bow, so pardon me if this is a "duh" question. For many (most?) compound archers, their bow arm is bent instead of straight. How come?

    Anybody shooting both Trad and Compound? Curious how draw lengths compare. I shoot my compound at the 30" setting but it seems like my Trad draw length is less... more like 28.5" Wondering if anyone else has similar experience. I expect the release on the compound has some effect but seems...

    Hi all , I was just curious about the approximate ratio of stringbow shooters compared to compounders at field archery clubs globally. In New Zealand it seems to be about 75% compound vs everyone else. Certainly at my club this is the case and elsewhere I go seems roughly the same. Are there...

    A coworker has a old Indian compound bow that he would like to make into a warfing. Does anyone know anywhere to find some good info or have any info on if this riser can be used for this project?

    I have another question that should be posted on Archery Talk but I finely got signed on but they won't allow me to post.That site is a challenge to use to say the least. Anyway, they use the term "Frankenbow" and I interpret that to mean assembling a special compound like "warf" is to us. If...

    No one becomes an expert from the very moment of handling a bow and arrow except the geniuses and that's an exceptional case. I feel so discouraged with my performances with shooting and i was told i was using the wrong bow for my level as a novice. I have a recurve bow and i choose it all...

    Hi, I am considering buying a compound bow as a change from my recurves. I do not know a great deal about the mechanics of a compound bow and have only shot two or three over the years, finger release. One thing I noticed with the bows I shot and hope this does not sound as daft as it reads but...

    Hi all I'm toying with the idea of shooting both trad and compound. I have an 30.5 inch AMO draw length so is this the same for compound. I don't live near an archery shop so would need to order anyways THANKS!

    What is a good compound for finger shooting? Something used, and not too pricey. Haven't been shooting as much as I would like, thought I might try compound for a little while. thanks dave

    I made this post over on ArcheryTalk, and wanted to share it with you guys and gals here, just in case you may find it helpful. (I know not everyone traverses back and forth between both forums) It's mostly explained in that thread, but the summary is that I felt a good, cheap, easily useable...

    My left elbow has been really bothering me with the damage done years ago by two pits fighting and getting bitten when trying to break them up. Long story short, I almost lost my arm but broke up a deadly fight and saved both dogs. I am a dog, pitty lover yes.:cheers: I shoot a Compound some...

    I have an old Bowtech mighty might that i would like to make into a recurve for bowfishing. the poundage on the bow only goes down to 70 which is why i want to be able to just put on recurve bow limbs that are around 30-45 so i can bowfish with it when i am not hunting. Is this even possible? if...

    Well guys I have shot insticticpve with a compound since I was a young child, switched to sights for tournament shooting and hunting. I bought my first recurve last year and fell in love with the trade style, also deer hunted a bit last year with it and the adrenaline rush was crazy after having...

    I have been wanting to convert my jaguar for quite a while. And not long ago, I came home to see that my bow string had snapped while it was out. Poor dog, must have scared the hell out of him when that let go. Anyway, seems like a good time to convert :] So, does anyone know if the risers are...

    The question is simple: is it possible? Has anyone ever played with doing it? Any experienced feedback would be great! Alan

    I’ve noticed that all my shots on calm deer with a trad bow that did not hit anything more than a rib they just trotted away like nothing alarming happened. Every deer I’ve shot with a compound in the same place took off like it was nearly struck by lightning. I’ve seen this enough that can’t...
