    For some reason I get better groups with 45# than I do with 30#. I’m not sure if it’s a better release or what but I shoot much better with 40-45 than 30-35. Is there anything to this? Obviously I can shoot much longer with lighter poundage limbs but I just couldn’t figure why this happens. I’m...

    So what do you get in higher dollar recurves over less expensive recurves? I’m not talking custom made but the more pricey manufactured ones.

    Things are changing rapidly as I start to work toward transitioning from a FITA barebow to a field/3D shooter. Today, my coach had me work on a higher anchor, which had always been difficult for me. I am putting my finger in front of my eye tooth. I finally got it. Now I just need to practice it...

    Most of my bows seem to like a higher, brace hight than the bowyers recomend. Some seem to like it up to 1/2" higher, while a couple are fine at low brace hight, eg(Border HEX6 longs- Morisson 17" riser is good at 6.7/8") Even my 2 long bows seem to like it higher. My ? is, are there any...

    I'm sure this has been covered before, but I was just wondering what the difference would be between say Black Max limbs and something like Winex, Morrison, etc... I have my first ILF bow on the way (with Black Max limbs) and was just wondering what a limb upgrade would do.:help:

    I am personally looking into purchasing some (high end) higher weight ILF limbs for my Gen 2 DAS Master Hunter. I am looking for limbs that would give me 62-65lb at my 29 1/2" draw length for hunting purposes. That should make the limb I am looking for a 52lb limbs or heavier + 8lbs on my 17"...

    I've been shooting 2 different bows and noticing one seems more forgiving of the "back end" of the shot, anchor, release and follow-thru. I'm comparing a 62" Samick Woodsman 52-55#, barebow with a Hoyt rest and 2018's, and a 60" Quinn Stingray, 46#, with a Weatherest, matched/spined woodies...

    I am shooting a DAS bow approximately 60lbs at 28". In this set-up I am shooting a Beman .400 MFX classic arrow. One arrow is fitted with the standard aluminum insert and the other has a brass insert. The first arrows weighs 445 grains and the second arrow weighs 505 grains. The first...

    I've been bareshafting some Beman MFX shafts. Oddly enough, they consistently hit the target higher than my Lightspeeds. I would think, since the center of the skinny arrow is actually higher on the string, that it would barehsaft lower if anything. Anyone have experience with this? P.S. -...

    OK - thanks for the assistance. In the last week my shooting has gone wobbly -- so I am working on a bale to try and shoot " my form" - shooting three fingers under with glove - using a 33# recurve - my beman 500's fly true but when I use bemans 400's - a heavier arrow by 2 grains per inch -...

    You know, I had heard that a heavier draw weight gives a cleaner release more than a few times. I unfortunately have not found it to be so. In reworking form recently I have found that my 50# recurve is my ideal weight while my 60# long bow is too much. I also found that my loose is better...

    if you think your high hunting anchor is working, shoot a sighted fita bow at 80 yds. get the sight zeroed in carefully. that session things will be working, groups well centered, scoring pretty good. a couple of days later shoot another round with the zeroed in ftia bow. the dang group...

    Hello, all. My all-around fun bow is a 35# Bear Grizzly, of undetermined age. Since I'm left handed, there aren't a lot of bows out there that I could "try out" (rent) at a range. If I were to spend some more significant U.S. bucks on a new bow, would I necessarily find a big difference? I don't...

    gitnbetr shot a 62" master one whole season with 31+" draw. He tore 'em up with it. Hmmm that makes me want to rethink what I know about bow lenght vs draw. I have a pair of 34# short kap challenger carbons that I picked up on sale when either David or PB ran a close out on them (can't...

    What will happen if I raise my anchor? What about if I lower it. I think this is called face walking but I am not sure. All info is welcomed.

    I just received my Quinn Stingray with the Stallion limbs and am shooting with an elevated rest for the first time since the late 60's. Boy, am I getting good arrow flight, but I am also grouping consistently into a small area about 4" high at 20 yards. I wonder if my eye is misreading the...

    I think Viper alluded to this on another thread. But should I find that the same bow requires a different nock set for a significantly stiffer arrow? In other words, if I took a 400 deflection arrow, cut it 29", and then loaded the head with weight to get it to shoot out of my 50# bow, will the...
