    Ok, so I bought a new Bear T/D and it’s 50# like my longbow that I cut, tuned and fletched a dozen Easton Axis trads for. The problem is that they’re a little weak through the T/D. If I reduce the point weight from 150gr to 100, they fly like darts. I mean perfect and super fast (average...

    Are there any distances or shots that any of you guys find don't seem to make sense regarding your gap? On our course we have a 30 yard shot shooting over a slight rise down into a hollow. The target spot ends up about four feet off the ground. It is doing my brain in!!! If I use my usual 30...
