    I bought a new Bear Grizzly about 3 months ago and have been shooting it regularly since them (and loving it!). When I got it, the string grooves were black, but now they appear to have worn through to the wood core. Is this normal? Should I be concerned? I am shooting a 16 strand B50, the...

    As you may well have noticed I have not been as active this last year as I normally am... Work commitments (the joys of being self employed) and illness have kept the number of shooting days down... This has been reflected in my scores... :( Got the nationals in 5 days and I have been giving...

    I have seen groove referenced a couple of times and related to a particular fps. Is that just a speed people try to maintain so they have similar trajectory all the time so their shots are consistent or does it refer to someting else?

    I was just over at the Widder wall and some of the guys were saying that they saw a increase in group size using wool wrap for string groove silencers. The concensus was to go back to calfhair on the bow in the string grooves. Never heard of wraps causing issues. Has anybody here noticed that?

    Two nights ago I dusted off the warf and loaded my quiver with some carbons. I stepped off ten yards and started to let fly. I couldn't get a tight group to going to save my life. Frustrated, I knocked another arrow canted the bow and just started letting those arrows fly. I must have relax...
