    Ok guys what type of bow do you think would be the mist forgiving in hunting situations? Short draw, sloppy release. Byron said it was the type of longbow he likes to use? What is you personal experience , recurve, Hill bow, RD or maybe an ILF.

    Just a curious thought and maybe this is a stupid question. We all know that long bows are more forgiving than a lot of recurves due to torquing/limb rigidity etc. so what about statics because the limbs are more rigid?

    Would having you bow set closer to center shot be more forgiving of a poor release (arrows tuned of course)? I have built out my strike plate to tune arrows and was just wondering. I shoot mostly at close range so it maybe not make that much of a difference but am starting to shoot at further...

    Are the hair rug-type rests known to be more forgiving of a bad release than hard leather rests? I wonder about this because my RER Vortex II longbow originally came with a leather side plate and shelf pad. I noticed less-than-clean releases would result in a harsher sounding shot and the...

    I'm fine tuning my indoor set up and after shooting 2 300 rounds on a fita target I got to looking at the grouping pattern. I have very good grouping right now but I am slightly stiff - as a lefty the majority of my shots fall to the right of the X and if I blow a shot it is always right. I want...

    Just trying to upgrade my education. I took up recurves about 2 years ago at the tender age of 58. Now 60, I'm trying to accelerate the learning curve as much as possible. I own a 60" one piece recurve and a takedown with a 15 " riser. The latter bow is quite a bit faster even though they both...

    I've always been of the opinion that longbows are very difficult to shoot well and much less forgiving than recurves. And I've tried a lot of them for very short durations before switching back to my trusty recurves and being relieved to once again shoot something that wasn't wickedly difficult...

    Hi everyone, Im a relatively new member here, and love the forum. After shooting compounds for 20 years, I recently got a Hoyt Dorado with 40# limbs to get me started. After reading countless threads on this site, and watching all 3 of the MBB videos, I have really got my form dialed in, and...

    Why should a heavy arrow be more forgiving per se? I can understand why more weight might have that effect if it translates into more FOC. But otherwise, the notion stumps me. I suspect part of the reason for the verdict is that a heavier arrow is slower and therefore easier to see in flight -...

    The trend in the compound world is to make the risers longer and the limbs shorter. This got me thinking. If a company offers a few diffrent riser lengths and you want a bow to be 62" would it be better to get a longer riser/shorter limb or vice versa.

    This may have been covered before but I'll bring it up since I don't know the answer. What is considered to be more forgiving? Using a weaker shaft and a stiffer plunger or a stiffer shaft and weaker plunger? Assuming both setups give a good bareshaft tune. I thought the conventional wisdom...

    Is there such a thing? I tend to shorten my draw length when shooting from an elevated position and even lengthen it a little bit for longer shots. I know this affects how the arrow leaves the bow and am wondering if any particular shaft brand / material is more forgiving of these shooting...

    I have been shooting my Quinnvantage "warf" and can't believe how much more accurate I am with it. I just came in from shooting and shot several 2" groups at 20 yds. It is a 23" strongly deflexed riser with short Quinn limbs on it making a 64" bow. Does a longer brace height have that much to do...

    This should resolve this debate once and for all.

    Well, somewhat. Been concentrating on my long distance shooting recently. I think one thing that would really improve my accuracy is a faster arrow. 50 yards or so is around the distance that I have to start bending at the waist to keep my "T" alignment (bow arm/head/draw elbow) intact. With...

    Hi, Just an idea to see if you guys think it would work. What about making "ribs" coming off where the fletch attaches to the arrow made of a material with a good mix of flexibility/stiffness and good "memory" (will hold shape). Then attach plastic on these ribs. I got the idea looking at a...
