A few years back, I received this little Samick Angel recurve from TT member Matt Potter when my grandchildren were very young. They've all grown into bigger bows, so it's time to pay it forward.
The first TT member to message their mailing address to me will receive this little bow at no cost...
I have participated in a Pay-It-Forward thread on a rimfire website. It is fun, but there are some rules that each person has to adhere to for it to work:
1. No sales or trades
2. The person giving away the item covers the shipping as well
3. The person receiving the item can't get the item...
Went to a wake last night, an old friend lost his long battle.
He was one of my bow hunting mentors, a fine friend, a gentleman in every sense. A teller of great hunting stories as well.
He was also one of the early proponents of 3D archery around here. In the era BM - Before Mackenzie - he...
When I was looking for a bow for my niece a generous individual(CODSTER) gave me a bow free of charge.
I have been wanting to do something as well so today I will give away a proline riser ready to warf.
I will pick a winner at days end.
CD archery has made a significant departure from conventional barebow design with the weight forward design strategy to create a balanced bow without stabilizers. I have not shot the riser so I cannot comment on the feel. It is clear, however, that it does not look like anything I have seen...
Well, I am flat out too tired to shoot my bows more than a few arrows. The problem is a low carb diet that is, hopefully, one of the last steps necessary to get back to shooting at my best. Once I hit the low carbs, my muscles lost all stamina. I saw my coach on Friday and could not get through...
Apart from look & feel, which I consider to be personal attributes,
what are pros & cons of forward handle risers?
I've never handled or shot one - so have no experience.
If the answers could be presented for numpties like me (without a degree in astrophysics) that would be nice.
Sorry to keep bring this topic up again.
I decided to shoot GT 500 spine since I was at the border line of being weak spine with the GT 600 spine. One thing that I'm confused about is adding weighted inserts. I was able to get my GT 500 spine arrows to fly well w/ 225 gr fp bareshaft. They...
Archery at the World Games
Field archery has represented archery for the recurve, compound and barebow divisions in all but the first edition of the World Games, thus making its 7th appearance in 2009. Recurve and barebow athletes will still shoot field archery at the Cali...
After my recent birthday I got to thinking about the birthdays that ment something special over the years.
I guess 16 was a great birthday because I could legally drive and got a key of my own to the family car.
At 18 I could legally drink a 3.2 beer and signed up for the draft.
At 21 I could...
It is a good news bad news type thing. I had 2 shoulder surgeries about 3 to 4 years ago and this was the first year that I have been able to shoot a bow above 35 # comfortably. That is until about a month ago and I got stupid and shot way to much about 200 times in a afternoon. I have been...
In the Nov/Dec issue of "US and International ARCHER", under the IBO Update they list rule changes. I found it interesting that for Recurve Un-Aided (RU) Class (that would be metal risers with elevated rests and plungers) they say, "String walking and face walking is not allowed. No stabilizer...
Hunting is a usualy durring the season, but in Md. there is no hunting on Sundays. This year will be the 1st year all 3 of my boys will be hunting. Jake is 13 and the youngest and I hope to get sll 3 out many times together.
>Church either Saturday evening or Sunday, for me it depends on what...
Why is it important that upon the loose, the bow tip forward?
I have read and been told this is a necessary part of good form. WHy?
I have to be away, but will check in later to see if anybody has an answer.
