    Excellent condition except the original owner made marks on the limb bolts and riser. Apparently for tiller. I haven't tried to remove them. $150 includes shipping and paypal USA.

    Works as it should, one ribbon. $100.00 tyd I could load a pic but every one of them look alike.

    Hello, I've been having some growing pains with getting into serious trad archery and this new issue has me stumped. I recently raised my brace height to just under 7" to help with an issue of the fletchings cutting the side of my hand. I went to test the new brace height and on the second set...

    Lost one of my lateral limb adjustment screws out of my WFL riser . I did a search and came up with two sizes . M4x8 and M4x12 . So which is it ? I’m guess the only difference between these two is the length . If so , I’m ordering the longer one . Anybody Loctite their screws ? It seems...

    I seem to be going through an alarming number of arrows and like to fletch them myself so I can position the fletching closer to the nock than average - works well for my anchor position- Any tips on purchasing fletching? I'm looking to buy 5" shield feather fletching. Maybe 4" but not sure how...

    I just received a new White Feather Lark 19" riser (which is very nice, incidentally). I've put old DAS Kinetics carbon/wood long limbs on it which come out to a 64" bow at about 46# @ 28.. I'm having a little trouble with bare shaft tuning off the shelf. I have quite a bit of experience with...

    I just found this riser on Alternative Sporting’s website . Similar to the White Feather Lark , but without the carbon backing and facing and looks like it doesn’t have the built in side plates ( I’m guessing that’s what they’re called) . The price look right , so I ordered one . I’ll let...

    This came up in my newsfeed: https://scitechdaily.com/the-physics-behind-optimal-archery-feather-design/ It was just presented, so interested to hear what the final conclusions are. I suspect it won't be much different to what the The Trad Lab came up with. "Currently, the choice of the...

    A pic of my 19” Lark riser and medium Soul Black Flash CF 32# limbs. Beautifully finished and I’m hoping it shoots as good as it looks. I’m new and have a couple questions I’m hoping someone can help me with. I ordered a dozen VAP elite 600’s and plan on fletching them with 3” feathers to use...

    Anyone seen one in person? Might be an inexpensive wood ILF riser, but hopefully not cheap, :).

    I’ve heard about waterproofing feathers for years. I’ve never dabbled into it. I have played with various floatants for fly fishing. Please share your methods and experience keeping feathers working in rainy conditions. -Tim Edit: I was inspired after watching a video of Paul from Elite...

    I realize I'm blowing this place up with maybe really basic questions, but I'm having a hard time finding the information through the search function, so maybe it will get some more search-able threads out there for guys looking for the same info later. Anyhow... I built a feather burner, but...

    I see a lot of parabolic and shield cuts with shooters but what about the rest like the Pope and Young cut. I suppose there is a number of threads already posted so please comment or direct me to some threads. Thanks

    Perhaps you could help settle a little disagreement. If you had a shooting machine that shot the same arrow to the same exact point every time. Suppose you shot a correctly spined arrow with 3 x 4 inch fletches, with the cock feather up and then you shot the same arrow again, but with the cock...

    There are very similar tools on the market from other companies (e.g. Fairbow), but they are mostly focused on European fletching shapes.

    It’s been suggested that I do a tutorial here on TradTalk on how to make a feather grinder. I know there’re a lot of ways to process feathers; this is how I do it. I’d be glad to hear any ideas of how you do it, or, answer any questions about my process. I made a jig years ago from ideas I...
