    Hello all, I am building my first set of arrows. They will be wooden footed walnut and pine. My question is to find my correct spine if I make my shafts extra long can I put the weight on my shaft and keep moving it until I get the spine I need. Then consider that my center cut it to length...

    I'm about to buy my first plunger, having until now, simply shot off the shelf without one. The thing is, I will have to buy my plunger by mail order, as I don't live close to anywhere that sells them. Looking at the various websites, I have noticed that many plungers come in a variety of...

    Ok, a little back story... I'm new to archery, no experience with compound or recurve bows. My kids originally wanted to start shooting and I thought this would give us the opportunity to spend more time together. I've decided to get a 45# Samick Sage, read nothing but good reviews on this bow...

    We all know that there are accuracy advantages to using a stabilizer and the correct arrow spine. This might be a theoretical question, but here goes: Say I don't want to change anything about my arrow, i.e., the spine, length, point weight, etc., are fixed. And say that the arrows pass the...

    Please correct me if my thinking is wrong. Given a longbow and a recurve of the same OAL say 60 inches I am thinking the longbow would have less finger pinch or a less sever string angle. Is this right?? Thanks, Jags
