    So here are the differences as I know them for the TD4 also known as GM. Background: The Hoyt Gold Medalist also known as the TD4 came out in 1984 and lasted until about 2005. It is an ILF riser and has tiller adjustment. The riser is made from magnesium so it's very light. There were three...

    Anyone know if you can use the gold tip inserts with Easton arrows. I want an arrow with a fact type system for tuning. Is there something like the Fact system in other arrows?

    I think I might have messed up . I wanted to try some carbon arrows . Read Gold Tip Traditionals were pretty good arrows . With the lower poundage I’ve been shooting , I’ve been drawing 28.5-29” I shoot off the shelf , split finger . So, I go to the GT Spine chart and for me shooting 28-32#...

    I have found undersized outside diameters on the last two batches of Pro Hunter shafts I have built. This arrow is advertised plus or minus .001" straightness. I was working with the 400 spine which is 32 inches in length. I found that the shaft was in specification until the last 2 inches (...

    I’m looking to transition from Easton Axis Traditional’s to a less expensive shaft, and Gold Tip Kinetics have caught my eye. I’m currently using brass HIT inserts, and it looks like the standard insert for the Kinetics is the Accu-Tough. Curious to hear opinions on if it would be reasonable to...

    I’ve been tinkering with these two arrows, out of my KM for a couple weeks now. I’m shooting 225 grain points and both arrows are 29.5” in length. I’ve shot the 340’s, with the 225 points from my Kodiak Hunter and they shot great but from the KM they’re flying erratic. When I release(3 under)...

    In a couple of hours I'm going to watch these three shoot in the gold metal match of the WA 3D world championships. What they have accomplished is stunning two regular guys from the states and a high school student upset the European powerhouses - the big euro teams are salaried and all they do...

    The GT traditional 340's I shoot are 5/16 diameter and 10.5 grains per inch. 3 rivers archery offers a GT traditional classic 340, that has a 9/32" diameter, 12.1 grains per inch, and an 80 grain insert. Would the smaller diameter and heavier arrow make the Classic a better penetrating arrow?

    I've shot bare shaft and fletched together and I'm still getting some, "nocking left" from my arrows at 10 -15 yards. I've got a 140 grain field point and a 60# bear kodiak hunter. I'm shooting 3 under and recently had an issue with my string nocks being to far apart and moved my lower nock up...

    Okay, I've scared myself again with Google images. How reliable are warrior gold tip arrows? Full carbon... I do check them regularly and after hitting something hard. Also... I know there are some aluminum arrows lying around the range with tiny dents in them. How safe are they? They are...

    Hey guys. I traded Steve Long for an unknown riser many, many years ago that turned out to be a rare 23" Hoyt Gold Medalist riser. Somebody prior to Steve had put a nasty paint job on it, and hand painted fish on the riser. The riser placards were long gone, and the grip was wrong. I had it...

    Hi Guys, Does anyone here have experience adding heavier inserts/weights/tips to Gold Tip arrows? I'm planning on ordering some Gold Tip Hunter 340 shafts and want to play with the weight up front ( 100gr inserts, potentially weights ). Using Gold Tip components is the obvious choice, but I...

    Just got a dozen traditional 500's and can't bare shaft them. Cut down to 29", with 85 gr. up front, they still show nock way left. I've always used Beman bowhunter 400's or 500's, which tune up well. I draw 29 1/2 with a Dalaa at 50#. Is the Beman simply a stiffer arrow? Their 500's are 7.3...

    Just wondering it you can change limbs with other limb manufacturers.
