    To start, I know for a fact the arrows I'm working on are over-spined. Like the title says, I've been trying to tune some new arrows that are intentionally heavy. So, I'll start with all my specs and then go into my findings and questions. Bow: Bear TD, the A Riser and #3 limbs. They scale 44#...

    well fellows... went fly fishing this evening with my brother. 15 minutes in, I hooked a big smallmouth bass on one of my home-tied streamers. (I landed it using just the tip section :p) danged thing turned & ran into some pretty severe rapids, & in a misguided attempt to turn the fish, my 8'6"...

    No hogs to hunt in Colorado - yet... But I have found another specie that may rate up there with them on the invasive scale - Carp. Saturday was my first chance to get out this year and the day did not look ideal when I left the house. It was overcast but no wind and was going to be relatively...

    Okay, here is the story. I am trying to get down to one bow for all four FITA distances. I have been using one bow shot split for the longer distances, and one bow shot three under for the short. I tiller each for the way that I was shooting them. Over the past few weeks, I have been shooting...

    GOOD DAY, Saw a Yumi and Longbow video compare and noticed that there is a point where the arrows start to fly straight. Question is... at what distance does a recurve arrow start to fly straight? I guess the draw weight and other factors contribute to this. We have a 62"x26#, and a 70"x44#...

    Been playing with limbs and risers the last few days, and this little riser which is pretty straight, also seems to have a more agressive limb pad angle, I havnt measured it, but it sure piles on the pounds on limbs I have put on it... With my hex5h limbs 43# at 28" 25" riser, I am getting 54.5...

    Just been outside in way to many minus degrees for a bit of mix and match... Not a scientific test by any means, but a real world test. Here ya go: all shot with same 680 grain arrow, I did try to vido how well the mamba and the acs limbs shoot and how well the hex 5s shoot on the fly, but it...

    Beginning traditional archer here having trouble with arrow flight. It seems as though my arrow is not flying straight when i shoot. rarely is my arrow sticking straight into the target when it hits. It seems to stick at an angle. What causes this? I dont feel like its an issue with the height...

    I am completely mystified. I was shooting blank bale and listening to the bow in my back yard. I pulled off the last Limbsaver super string leach leaving the string bare. On the third shot the string disappeared!. The arrow was in the target as expected but the string was gone. The limbs flapped...

    I am doing a project with Arvid at Black Swan and would like to understand what the current arrow speed benchmark is for male Olympic recurve archers? I think is pretty safe to assume that top archers are using the best equipment but any extra data like limb weight, draw length, total arrow...

    It has recently been brought to my attention that many of us here not only enjoy traditional archery, but fly fishing as well. To get this thread rolling, I pose a few questions to the masses. 1) What do you fish for? 2) What type of water do you prefer? 3) What drew you to fly fishing? 4)...

    I got my first bow on the 10th and of course I immediately set up a target in the basement. 8 yards. Although I was hitting the foam cube, the point of impact was inconsistant. So when the weathered finally cleared and I took it outside I wasn't too confident about increasing the distance. But...
