    In years past whenever I got arrows for a bow the first thing I did was cut them 1" longer than my draw. I tried to make them work with std insert, points etc. I never was " really good" with a recurve but just ok and I eventually went to compounds. A few months ago my interest in recuve...

    Anyone have any tips for getting bodkins (MA-3s) sharp without it taking an hour or so? Love the way these fly, but feel like I'm doing something wrong in my sharpening method: Stroke two blades (1A and 2B) at a time on a mill b*stard (just being polite) file, one stroke and turn to next two...
