equipment

    I got a text from a friend this am. Mention the particulars of a certain riser. I answered as best I could, but realized that there's probably two ways to look at equipment. One way is to have a certain set up and have the mind set that 'I'm going to learn to shoot this set up as good as I...

    Hi, anyone knows the equipment in the picture: 01: Black / Gold riser looks like a W&W, but I never saw one before 02: Mushroom weight on Spiga BB, is it a brand item or custom made ? Thx.

    I came upon a recently closed thread about a warranty issue with a riser. While I’m no great fan of the brand in question, realistically, how else could they have dealt with an expired warranty problem, even Walmart or Sears would not have refunded that. It does however make me wonder how...

    I just got a call from a friend of ours down in south Texas. He finished his coaches training course for 4H and is organizing the club. He thought he'd have 4-5 kids interested and has 15. Does anyone know where to get some kids bows on the cheap? He starting with nothing and not much of a...

    Hi All, I am thinking of getting into barebow. I have a Hoyt Helix (currently with Stratex limbs). If I were to get a nicer set of limbs, without breaking the bank, specifically for barebow outdoors, what do you all recommend? Also, I normally pull 40# in my longbows. Is that a good...

    I have been noticing unexpected changes in my point on. What had been about 43 yards had settled in at about 38 for no reason that I could explain....until.... On a previous post I was providing some information about my Black Eagle XImpact arrows. I had promised to weigh the arrows later and...

    I've found this forum to be a great source of advice as I try to advance my understanding of archery equipment and am hoping I can get some input on my specific (though common) situation. I'm currently shooting a pretty basic takedown recurve that has served me well for a couple years, but I...

    I’ve been posting here for a bit less than six months, and I have reviewed a fair number of older posts using the search function. I have really appreciated the information on archery equipment, especially from posters like Demmer, Grantmac, Stephen Morley, and Hank D. Thoreau. In a recent...

    I have been helping a few ppl get started up here in Fort Smith NWT. The certified instructor here is a nice gal, but doesn't know much at all...really, but she just wants to help....oh well. So I got a guy started during the winter indoors and used some real light bows - 25 and 30 pounders...

    I am in the process of getting components for equipment changes for the upcoming indoor season. Right now my regular 29" field arrows, I have to aim about 39" below the spot. I have some 33.5 inch long 2315 Easton Cobalt arrows with 145 gr points and 4" feathers that I have to aim about 14"...

    Hey y'all, went out in the woods today with a group of my coworkers and taught them and one of their 9 year old sons how to shoot was a blast! Met a fellow archer in the woods too, really surprised me since I live in the city hardly ever see anybody shooting! Anyways we got an unexpected down...

    I have only just begun to shoot traditional. And I really only started to see if it was something I enjoyed. So far I would say it is addicting to say the least. I am however not made of money, so I pulled the reel and rest off of my 45# PSE Kingfisher, put some felt on the shelf, picked up a...

    Hello, I'm new to archery, rented a couple times and trying to get my own equipment. Problem is, the style of shooting and a complimenting bow seems to be impossible to acquire. I've been scouring archery pages to find what bow would work best for a right hand thumb release target shooting. I...

    Hey, having always shot indoor with wheels in the open compound class, I have no idea what applies with traditional bows. I was going to shoot the local league this year if I get some limbs for the Hoyt Buffalo riser, and I was wondering what class I would be shooting, if I were to shoot...

    Is there a good compromise for gappers, of trying to set up bow/arrow combination to give the best point on, depending on maximum distance of the event? I know for hunting I try and get my point on at 20, 25 or 30 meters depending on equipment. But for competition is there a bit of a guideline...

    I had the pleasure of going to an unmarked 3d shoot today. Tom Daley called and told me he had been practicing with his recurve and was ready to take me on. So he shows up with an old bear take down, I believe it is a c riser his Dacron string is probably 15 years old 2013 aluminum arrows that...

    I have read these before and know it says that your arrow rest cannot be over a certain height above your arrow. Does this mean in the sight window/shelf only or, for example, with a big adjustable wrap around rest like an AAE Free Flyte does it also include the adjustment hinge and screws...
