    Has anyone shot both of these two limbs? If so I'd be interested in any feed back re draw feel. My current two main limbs are CV and hex6.5 both of which are stellar but I'm curious if there's anything somewhere in the middle with a bit more give early in the draw like the CV and a little less...

    My poor sweet baby girl...her womanhood was brutally stripped away from her in the sneakiest of ways today...I think I'd rather clip my testicles off with a pair of garden shears than put any dog I own through this again. :(

    I've been shooting a 45# Grizzly recurve for a few months now. Got a vintage Kodiak Magnum in the mail today that's also 45#. They feel different. The Kodiak feels like there's way less tension than the Grizzly. Brace height on Grizzly is 7.5" and Kodiak is 8.5". Could the shorter limbs of the...

    Hey Guys, I've had my Quinn for a while (bought new around 8 years ago) and painted the limbs. It is a Quinn Comet XL 3D. Problem is, I can't remember if it is the 64" or 66" model, and the limbs markings etc are gone due to painting. I measured the string under tension at 61 and 1/4" and my...

    This may be a difficult notion to articulate, but it's been on my mind. As most of you know I spent last year in Afghanistan. When I returned my bow arm needed a little bit of cleaning up, but for the most part my shot was okay. Nevertheless, my shooting was not as consistent as I would like...

    Most reference material talks about the bow hand grip going down the "lifeline"... but here's my question: Are you meant feel the bottom of the grip pressing in the bony part of your palm? Or is the feeling of the grip meant to be in web part of your hand? I have a weird bow arm - basically...

    Hi wise ones - have heard risers like the GMX called a hard/stiff feeling riser & pse-x appeal a soft feel riser - I have a couple of harder feel risers (Moon & Vision) & a softer feeling Fantom - am thinking one more soft feel would even up the herd ... any names come to mind in a 25" riser...

    To the best of my knowledge, a bow drawing xx# @ xx", all else being equal the arrow should have a spine weight that is 5 to 10# heavier or somewhere within that 5# range is that correct? So it stands to reason that all else being as it should... form, release, follow through, etc. the arrow...

    For the most part my practice work has become mechanical, no feelings involved other than forced relaxation - good in tough situations where you have to make a shot. Breathe, draw, anchor, breathe, relax check routine, breathe, settle on the bull, release the breath as expanding. I did fully...

    Firstly, I apologize for all the questions. I have been out for several years and have much to catch up on. I know in my shot sequence I am supposed to get to anchor, set the sight picture, and then move to the final stages of the shot. I believe many incorporate "expansion" into the back end...

    ...emerging from hibernation. Is Spring here yet? My archery spidey senses are tingling and I am raring to do some shooting, its been too long (not just the weather getting in the way). Need to book some shoots and blow off the cobwebs/break off the rust. Might need some new toys too...

    I have been shooting HEX5 and HEX6 limbs now for about three years. I have posted quantitative test results for both on archeryinterchange.com, but have not really commented much on feel. Today I use my HEX6 limbs to shoot 90 and 70 meters split finger, and some PSE ProElites limbs to shoot 50...

    the tab or the glove... I like the feel and control of the glove but get a much cleaner release with a tab..however my shot consistency isn't there as much with a tab as it is with a glove..

    Have you ever shot a bolt on limb bow (old Sky.Hoyt DAS) type. then warfed it for ILF? Did it change the feel of the bow alot? I can only compare apples to oranges,shooting two bows my Sky Medalist and Hoyt Gold Medalist.the Sky has a solid snappy feel to it and the Ilf feels softer and kinda...

    Now that we've vetted aiming methods and form perfection, Lets discuss FEEL. I am finding more and more that I can feel a good shot when it happens. A miss, has it's own signature feelings. For me, it feels like,, 1. WEAK, it often even sounds softer, this usually means my anchor is creeping...

    It's something I wax poetic on to my kids and I get al glassy eyed and dreamy, and they usually just say something like "Earth to Coach, hello coach, reality is holding on line 2..." I tell them the magic happens when you are standing there and the bow just shoots. You feel the bow bend and...
