    Still pretty new to this, and I'd like to buy a new string for my bow. It's a Jeffery Archery Royal hunter takedown that's around 20 years old. I've attached pictures of the front and back of the limbs. Can this bow handle the fast flight strings like the D97? Thanks in advance.

    Here is a quote from LBG, made in a recent post that I don't want to hijack. I'm interested in more conversation, so am posting here. Thanks LongBowGuy I am trying to get functionally similar arrow trajectory out of (2) bows. I shoot 3 under with a fairly deep hook and a fairly high anchor...

    Brothers in arms, need your advice. In the process of tuning my HEX8’s for hunting, I’m having some issues. As you can see from the bareshaft/fletched with pink 4x3’ from 18meters, they fly like I want them to. The bareshaft slightly weak and nock high. With either broadhead and 4x4’ feathers, I...

    Hi all I recently made a warf bow with my old Darton SL 50 riser that I had been carting around for 30 years. I am a compound shooter and my knowledge of trad bows is very slim. I bought a set of samick sage 40lb limbs and after getting a friend to machine up a piece of nylon block to bring the...

    Hi all. I have a 17" Big Rock Pharos riser with medium SF foam carbon limbs. The limbs are tillered even as I shoot 3 under.

    For SW BB target shooting is there a noticeable difference between them? I currently have 8125 on one bow and FF on another and I can't really tell the difference. The only thing I'm seeing is that the FF seems to be wearing out faster than the 8125. I've never tried 450+ so I have no clue...

    Got a new Grozer scythian biocomposite on the way, was just wondering if they can handle fast flight or dyneema type strings? I normally make my strings from 8125g and all my bows have them, including my Korean "horsebows". But the Grozer I ordered is my new biocomposite so not sure if it can...
