    In years past whenever I got arrows for a bow the first thing I did was cut them 1" longer than my draw. I tried to make them work with std insert, points etc. I never was " really good" with a recurve but just ok and I eventually went to compounds. A few months ago my interest in recuve...

    I’ve been able to tune off the shelf with full length arrows and point weight, is there any reason to cut my arrows down? My DL is 28 1/2” and I shoot instinctive.

    Working on form with pics and video and notice that my elbow on my string arm kinks out (not aligned with arrow). I know this is not preferred, so I increase draw to better align forearm to arrow and I get systems of overdrawing like string slap on forearm. Also, I have been drawing right...

    I have a WTB ad on AT like I do here on TT. Since last night I received 2 PMs asking to email in one and text to another. They are scammers that just joined. They are either looking to sucker you in and rip you off or just trying get personal information. I assume they will be moving onto the...

    Hi. I'm putting together some Easton Hexx's for full length Magnus Bullheads. When I spin test the bare shafts, one end is better the the other. Which end should be for nock? Which end for insert? I tried to find some arrow culling articles, but all the info was assuming you would cut the...

    Looking for suggestion on making a 400 spine arrow work with my setup. Already have the arrows. Shooting a tradtech titan 40 lb limbs but looking at going up to 45 lb for hunting. DL is 29.5” Normally shoot 500 spine with 175grain up front, tip + insert. If 400 is too stiff I would just sell...

    You come back to what makes you smile when you look at it, shooting becomes fun again and you're motivated to shoot. The whole process becomes enjoyable again. I picked up this fantastic SKP while in TN at the classic. I got it from Charlie (Dennis) a super nice guy that lives just outside STL...

    Every limb has an ideal brace tension/deflection and an ideal tension/deflection for full draw. Is there a standard for ILF limbs? I guessing there isnt. Do manufacturers put these numbers for particular bows out somewhere? Are most limbs engineered with this in mind or do they do it in a...

    Here's my problem. I have no issues drawing up to 70#, though I normally use a 50# bow. But at full draw if I hold for more than 1 second I start shaking. I used to think I was overbowed but then I tried it with lower draw weights like 25# and 30# and I have the same problem. Obviously the...

    The only place I can shoot almost every day is the target bale I have at the back of my garage. 10 yards puts me 1/2 way down the drive which is about as far as I can go without upsetting the neighbors. 20 yards would put me just onto the street, shooting across the sidewalk which would REALLY...

    Hi all, My blank bale and holding drills has revealed something to me just now: I don't breath while holding the bow. This came as a big doh! moment when I let the bow down and then inhaled sharply. Then I tried again and realized I was breathing in deeply while drawing and not breathing...
