    Aloha, Wondering about experiences with Borders or Morrisons with 31 plus draws? Tried a friend’s MAX6 at a shorter draw and really liked it, but wondering about stresses at longer pulls. Also, am I right in thinking these super hooks, once they reach the 28” point, don’t pick up any more...

    Had a follow-up appointment with the Doc yesterday.... The swelling in my left leg is slowly going down, which indicates that the blood clots in the major ("deep") veins of that leg which are impeding blood flow (thrombosis) are slowly receding. Good news - you want the clots to dissolve and...

    I'm currently working on some ilf longbow limbs of my own design. They will be 3" longer than current long length limbs. They will have a deep core, and my thinking is that with the longer length they should be more stable at lower brace heights. My plan from the beginning was to duplicate the...

    So I have been using a really deep hook for the last year. The string actually sits slightly forward of midway between the two joints. My finger tips are curled all the way where my nails rest against my face. The last few days I have been experimenting with placing the string in the first...

    Clearing out ALL of our Mathews Lost Camo dipped limbs. They are set with DAS bushings, but easy to convert to ILF bushings if you have an ILF riser and bushing (linked below if needed). We will even change them out before sending if you call in your order (still buying bushing separate) Below...

    I have researched all or nearly all threads on Trad Talk regarding this subject and the definition of "deep hook" seems to vary and even change with time. My interest is I have developed a tendon problem in my elbow that seems to relate to my fingers. (This could just be old age). I have always...

    I was contemplating trying out some of these either in the fmj or nano st. If I did I would most likely use an outsert with typical points and not the deep six system. I am currently using standard fmj's. I'm wonderng if the deep six are stronger in either the fmj or nano as well. Has...

    What's better, a deep hook or not so deep? I hook in the crease of the joint at my finger tip. Many instructions I see direct the student to hook between the second and third joint. I have even seen deeper. My question is, with a shallow hook, does it cause more string roll? The deeper hook...

    I've been using a deep hook on my string hand when drawing my bow. I've noticed that as I draw, my fingers tended to open up a bit. I've tried to be a bit more aggressive lately in not allowing this to happen. This means a bit more tension in these fingers but the results have been reasonably...

    Is deep hooks on Recurve limbs a recent discovery? One maker seemed to have them,,,,,,,,Now others are going deep hooks too. I mean I'm seeing some really radical recurve hooks that are just in recent months coming out by US makers. They all look very hard to string to me? Has these deep hooked...

    A cautionary tale for those setting off to shoot competitions that involve much travel. I have my bow always set up at home. Travelling to club it gets bunged in the car still set up. It goes a long time without being taken down. I recently set off across the water to the UKIFAC 2012, IFAA...

    I really like the camp cast iron cook ware I've collected over the years. Griswold and Wagner Ware Now I'm short a really good dutch oven and a deep fry pan some folks call the chicken roaster. I've never had these and want to get one of each that I'd keep for eons. About the only source of...

    I was thinking about nock tightness again and then it all went dark... When is an arrow supposed to be free of the string? At brace height? A bit beyond brace height? When the string is "at centre"? All of the above? One tunes brace height for the quiet sweet spot, then inadvertantly shoots...

    Hi, I shoot three under with a black widow 3 under tab. When I hook at the first crease/knuckle, I get the best release when my finger tips are bent all the way. Meaning, I'm pointing my fingers back at myself and the string is trapped between the pads of my fingertips and the pads nearest...

    Years ago when I was shooting compounds I gripped the string with my finger tips, laying the string across the pad of my fingers before the first joint. Since finding TT I've been using what I thought was a "deep hook". The string lays in the first joint of my top two fingers and across the pad...

    I was wondering if anyone else ever experienced a middle finger "strain" while using a deep hook and split finger. I think that I am still having some residual pain from overshooting in Jan. Have decided to quit shooting altogether for a couple of months, start doing some exercises, and then...

    I really am trying the deep hook and now think that I am more comfortable with split finger. I am still using my super glove, but find that I have to be very careful to place the string on the leather tips. Sometimes the string wants to go alittle deeper past the reinforced tips. Also, now...
