    Hello All Put a piece of white tape at bottom of top limb.Add a center limb mark. Draw bow string and alien bow string with line on the tape mark. This will work for a natural cant of the bow. To repeat ones holding cant. Just start out with a center mark. And add your canting mark.[Later

    I'm messing around with a new riser that is pretty much straight to slightly reflexed. Should I expect the brace height to be an inch or so lower? And the effective draw length an inch longer? The arrows I had on hand where to light of spine, and the masking tape nock kept walking around, so...

    I just wanted to crow a little: I just passed the Level 3 NTS coaching with USA Archery this weekend. Two and a half days of intense training but I learned a great deal that will hopefully help with my shooting. Mike Cullumbar was the instructor for those of you that know him - did a great...

On Friday my SF Premium...

    I have long wanted to add popular entry level bows to my testing database. I now have an archery club that is going to partner with me to do that. Their interest is so that they have better information available to them when they recommend first bows to archers participating in the large...

    Well, I shot the Trad Worlds with new arrows and a newer bow 3-under with the same anchor as split finger. I am ready to raise my anchor so the arrow is closer to eye level. Does this change necessitate a change in nock height? And does this mean I need to tape my nose like Rod J., Demmer and...

    I recently had a discussion with a friend of mine, who indicated that he begins his draw above his head, and drops the bow down as he draws. I indicated that I start with the bow low, and the bow comes up as I draw. This of course led us to a discussion of which is "better". I don't see many...

    Hello all! This is my first post here. I apologize if I'm posting in the wrong area. I'm a relatively new archer who has been shooting my old 24# olimpic style recurve for a few months. I'm looking at upgrading to a ILF recurve for 3D and possible hunting. I've done quite a bit of research...

    are there others than the tt's to consider? (the tt's are $180, so say <$250) and what speed difference might i expect between equal weight tt black max recurve and tt longbow limbs? thanks. joe

    I have dropped off the grid recently due to the fact that a little rain has fallen on my head, so to speak. So I am overdue on some correspondence and shipping, which I will catch up soon. :o However, when my nieces arrived for a visit and admitted to wanting to learn the way of the bow, I...

    Would anyone recommend a good riser that is not too expensive and would pass NFAA Trad class requirements? The Excel comes to mind but seems on the light side. Any other recommendations? My understanding is that heavier is better but NFAA Trad doesn't allow external weights. It seems Italian...

    I've been wondering about these two types of limbs. I see there are several glass/foam and mid level carbon/wood limbs at close to the same price point. Does anyone have experience with these limbs? I have a couple of glass/foam limbs and a pair of glass/wood limbs. I like the smoothness of...

    Is Lancaster the best? A neighbor is getting his daughter set up and asked if I could help. Of course what he has selected is not available from my usual sources. Thanks

    I went shooting early this morning. I took my W&W Nxpert riser that I had put a level on some time ago. Well since I got a level on the riser I thought I would look at it. Dang I get the bow out of verticle a lot more often than I ever figured It is something I don't think about on the 3D...

    I am looking to try out a longbow. My thought is to get a light weight entry level bow that I can spend some time with to help determine how deeply I want to make the plung, and how much weight I am willing to pull. I would not be looking to compete except as a novelty since I am already doing...

    I am looking to buy a good wooden entry level recurve or longbow. I also have a old Bear compound bow that I would not mind getting warfed once I get it unstrung and taken apart. My step dad had one warfed and it is pretty sweet. Any suggestions for a great bow that is mass produced or in stock...

    I just bought my first ILF riser (a Proline Warf) and need some limb recommendations. I am looking for some entry level limbs for hunting. They would need to be shorts and around 50 pounds or more maxed out. I have been looking at the Greatree carbon limbs and the Winstorms glass limbs...
