    Looking to set up my bow for a local 3D tourny. It will be out to 30 yards max with unmarked distances. The majority of shots will be in the 22 to 27 yard area with the occasional 30 or 30+ yard shot to keep us honest. I was thinking of raising my nock to a 25 yard point on. But I'm wondering...

    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...

    The max distance here for 3D events is usually 30 yards with the majority of shots in the 20 - 25 yard range. Only a couple of shots at 30 and a handful at 15. So I’m curious what you think would be the best point on distance. Mine is currently a 30 yard point on but I’m considering making...

    Playing about with limbs and risers today kinda got me thinking about set ups for the coming year. I have a new Triple Crown arriving in April so will shoot a fair bit of longbow but for recurve, mainly barebow and recurve unaided, is there an ideal poundage that works for both field and 3D, one...

    My question is for a draw length of 27 1/2" what is the most efficient riser and limb length combo. Want the set up to be between 58" to 62" and primarily to be used for hunting and 3-D. Thanks, Todd

    I have a general question, I'm 5'7" and I currently have a 30" stabilizer and my 3" v-bar extender came in today. I used it on my riser (w/o the limbs attached) and it felt like my arm was getting sore from holding it. I was wondering if 33" rod is too long for 5'7". If it is, what would be the...

    I have a few ILF risers and limbs. I just took the step into ILF less than a year ago so it is still fairly new to me. I am a hobby bowyer so one of my reasons to explore ILF was to establish a plan to make a wood-ILF riser. When I measure the limb angle, I draw a line on paper then lay the...
