    Thinking about giving a small diameter [ .166 ] shaft a try. I'm used to shooting 5/16 shafts. This is out of pure curiosity just to see if I like them or see any advantage in accuracy with them. The problem is I have been shooting the same set up for so long, it seems like any time I make a...

    I'm about to try making my own strings and I've been trying to find info about number of stands and serving to fit various Nocks. I have new spools of D97 and halo 0.019. If I'm remembering correctly my current strings are both 14 strand flemish from 3 rivers. No idea the serving material...

    I'm starting to look into fletching my own arrows, and I think I have a good enough handle on the basics of that to pick up a jig and start making mistakes. One thing I don't get though, is the relationship between nocks and center serving diameter. I've tried searching, but can't seem to...

    Hey all, Anyone know where I can get FP's in 150, 175 and 200grains? Only place I've found is GrizzlyStiks and they have a pretty crappy rep for their products and business practices. Thanks,

    I was just wondering if any wooden arrow users have tried reducing high spine 11/32 to 5/16? Here in the UK we can generally only get 5/16 to 40/45lb and I am looking to try starting out with say 65/70 spine 11/32 and reduce them to 5/16 in an effort to end up with around 50/55lb. When rear...

    I was just curious what arrows you guys are using for 3D and IBO. I need new arrows and want to change from my gold tip traditional arrows. I was thinking of going to shafts like the VAP, Gold tip pierce platinum, black eagle x impact just to name a few. Is there a big difference going to a...

    I think I'm right in saying that in WA Field for Trad Longbow and Recurve, there is no maximum limit for shaft size, wooden of course. I was just wondering if anyone has played around with this. I was thinking two sets of arrows. Fat ones for bugs eyes, and skinnies for distance. A lot of our...

    Who makes the smallest diameter carbon shafts? I am looking for something that will fit inside my Gold Tip arrows which have a .246 I.D. I was told that Easton Redlines worked in the past but those have not been made for many years now. Thanks James

    I need to buy a new spool of serving and am unsure of what diameter to buy. I see there are a lot more serving material choices too. My strings are 3 bundle, 15 or 18 strand fast flite. My nocks are usually 5/16 snap on classic nocks. What diameter thread would be appropriate for my setup?

    Which brand of serving thread and which diameter are you using for tying nock points? I've got an old roll I've been using for years, but I feel it is a bit too thin; tends to make really small nock points and works into my serving, making it hard to screw up or down. Looking to replace this...

    How would a small diameter arrow such as a Easton Carbon One perform in a longbow cut to center? I have someone local that had some shafts he wanted to get rid of with a price hard to pass up.

    I'm trying to find a arrow insert with .220" diameter. I think one of the ACC might work. Can someone give me a name for an insert with that dimension. Thanks Bob

    Hey All, I was just wondering if you could give me your opinions on the the thinnest/smallest diameter arrows money can buy. I would like to use them for target shooting, and if possible, hunting. Specs and pricing would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Yesterday I tuned some 700 for my bow. Did a good job and was shooting them very well. 20 was pecking the x ring regularly. I don't mess with Goto bow once I got my arrow shooting. I did have some 600'same lenght with a point that should shoot out of my 700 bow. Did not touch the tune but...

    I've been using BCY D97 for some time, and I've got my formula's down for strings, serving size and loop pads for different weight bows. I've just come by some Brownell Rhino material, and their website says it's, .015 in diameter. Anyone know the stand diameter of D97? I've searched BCY's...

    I will be ordering my first string material today. I plan on making endless loop strings. I plan on ordering D97 material, using a multifilament braid for the end servings, and Halo for the center serving. If I make 12 strand strings, what size center serving will I need to order for a...
