    Just a quick, general post to grab some user opinions. Where is the ideal place to hook the bow string on the tab? How deep in the fingers do you hold? "Simple ain't easy."

    Hey all, Recently, I have had difficulties with my string coming off of the inner portion of my sleeve. It is more evident when I wear a jacket of any kind. I never had a problem with this until a few weeks ago. I know that my grip is just right. I haven't made any adjustments to that from when...

    Working on my recurve in the basement (9yards) trying to really work on my draw and anchor point. I noticed the top of the bow wants to tilt to the right and also front of the bow wants to turn to the right upon release. Also have a little string slap on the left wrist about 2 inches up from...

    Anyone know what form flaws can cause bare shafts to shoot stiff? Seems like I need really heavy tip weight. At least according to 3rivers spine calculator and my experience setting up arrows so far. Setup DAS tribute Samick r3 discovery 40 lb limbs Mountain muffler string 30” draw length...

    I robbed someone elses thread but was advised to just make a new one. I filmed my draw form (couldn't get outside, horrendous winds plus whos gonna film)and notice as i align my shoulders my head pivots and i lean forwards at the same time. Anything else? P.s excuse the belly in the back...

    Evening all! All the saga around tuning the bow has had an interesting side effect. I was so convinced that it was ‘me’ and not the bow (the limbs were signed on the wrong limbs and so the bow was in effect up side down) that I’ve noticed my form and stamina has greatly improved. My grouping...

    I got a text from a friend this am. Mention the particulars of a certain riser. I answered as best I could, but realized that there's probably two ways to look at equipment. One way is to have a certain set up and have the mind set that 'I'm going to learn to shoot this set up as good as I...

    Wanted some constructive criticism on my form! When I draw the bow back my draw arm doesnt make the classic v that I see when most people draw a bow..no matter how I try my bicep and forearm are in line instead of a v shape?

    It's been years sense I've made a bow, been thinkin real hard about cookin up another one. Now beings my old form has developed a pretty severe warp from sittin up in the barn, I was wondering about what other materials are available these days. Mine was just 3 sheets of ply-wood...

    What influences does the shooter impose on arrow spine? Some guys get away with a stiffer setup while others shooting similar equipment end up with a much weaker arrow setup it seems. I tend to always end up with a stiffer arrow setup than what you think would work. Maybe Im doing something...

    Who practice in hunting shooting positions? I been a primary ground hunter and I am usually in a sitting/kneeling position very seldom have I been in a stand up position for a shot. Usually I try to work on my weak angle shot side with some canting from the open shot that present itself through...

    Hello all, Recently got back into shooting when my uncle gave me his Ben Pearson recurve from the 60's. I'm noticing that arrow flight is much cleaner when shooting without the tab. Thoughts on that? I shot a ton in high school, pushing 20 years ago, mostly bare finger, but developed an...

    I have been silent for months but am still practicing Gao Young's Military Archery method. The gear has changed up though... This bow is a Mariner Bow imported through The Cinnabar Bow. It's his Han Wind 1 model, a take on the Changshao bow. Makes ~50# @ 28". I draw to a smidge past 32"...

    I have been having some trouble lately and can't quite put my finger on it (so to say):) On a lot of my shots I'm getting arrow porpoising now and can't figure out what it is I'm doing different. I'm pretty sure it is in my string hand but want to keep an open mind to all possibilities. I...

    I am trying the tradbow for the first time after many years of shooting compound. I did a ton of research before I ever pulled the string back and know that it will be a long process but want to make sure I'm starting out with the right form. I've been shooting this recurve for about 3 weeks and...

    So I'm probably the last guy in the class to lose his virginity by saying this but... wow form masters are great! I just made my own from a YouTube vid, very basic, easy etc and I couldn't believe the way it forced the back muscles to do all the work. I instanstly saw where and what I was...

    Hello -- Was able to shoot some today. I believe this is my fifth or sixth time out with my stickbow. My first thread gave me some good information I remembered this time out, mainly slowing down. I am starting to learn my "gaps" at 10 yards. No long distance for sure, but definitely in my...
