    Getting ready to order some shafts for the DAS. Have been using some .424 spine carbon shafts with 365 grains of weight up front. Thought of using some .500 spine shafts and backing the weight off a bit for a more reasonable trajectory. My concern is the thin wall of .500 spine shafts. I don't...

    I was shooting a 3D last month with a friend who is much more field-experienced than I. While I was shooting my Quinn Stingray with a plunger, T-300 rest, sling, stab; he was shooting a modern longbow off the shelf. Something that occurred to me is there was nothing to go wrong in the field-...

    I shoot a variety of arrows using 3-4" parabolic feathers with a little helical. I generally buy Gateway feathers off e-bay. I've recently noticed that the white feathers I have on some Beman Black Max 400's are "breaking down". By this I mean that they are often distorted when they hit the...

    Hi, I'm shooting a warf (proline typhoon/conquest limbs) and have some light carbons on order. I'm pulling about 43# at 26". My arrows will be easton redline 520s with 100 grain points. These arrows should weigh in between 300 and 400 grains. I know the bow won't blow up but will the life...
