    Turning 50 I find myself dropping bow weight but not loosing energy thanks to todays advancements in Recurve technology. Here is a review on the newest Border Archery production Hex 8 limbs on my Covert Hunter Risers.

    Can you help with the answer to this question? Once we settle on a desired broadhead weight, is there any advantage in buying a lighter version of that broadhead and making the desired weight by adding a heavy adapter, compared with just buying a version of that broadhead in the desired...

    Enjoy....if you need a lighter moment from "whatever", watch this. You may find yourself watching all her videos, like the difference between "axe" and "ask"; as in, "let me axe you a question". She is actually a pediatrician during the day. her response to axe/ask video (catch all her accents)

    Hi guys, I have a 64" 53# one piece Whip and a 66" 55# 19" morrison metal riser with XL foam core das longbow limbs. Why does my ILF bow seem so much lighter. Before I put it on a scale I thought it was 50# tops. I can draw them side by side and my ILF set up is easier to draw (I draw 32"). Is...

    I have a ~50# bow. Its what I mostly shoot. I can hold at draw for 20-25 seconds. And my main goal is to improve with this bow. I have improved a great deal with it over the last 4 months but Im still not what would be considered good. I intend to keep shooting this bow the most for the...

    Okay, my go to arrow is a 3-18 ACC. Raw shaft length is 29 inches, G-Nocks, Boening 2 inch long Shield cut X-Vanes, and 82 grain points. My previous arrows weighed 339 grains. So since I lost way to many over the past couple weeks with some really bad range estimating on some 3D targets, I...

    I shoot a Samick Journey recurve 40#@28 with a 31" (47#?) draw. With very good results I currently shoot 32" GT Hunters 5575 (400 spine) with 4" feathers and 125g tips. This is my regular setup - I shoot 3-4 days per week in the back yard (35yd range) and I shoot local 3D courses. I also hunted...

    After years of reading, and being told by almost everyone, that my arrows were too stiff, I have decided to try some softer ones. My current bow is a 1968 or 1969 Wing Archery "Swift Wing", 38 lb at 28 inches, 66 inches long. My current draw length is about 28 inches. My current arrow is a...

    I have a 42.5#@30.5" bow and I tried an arrow that I shoot out of my 50# DAS. It is a .500 spine, 31 1/8", four fletched with 3" feathers, and 125 grain points up front arrow. It flies good out of the bow. No bare shaft tuning yet. If I want to try a shorter, lighter spined, lighter weight...

    So might be overthinking it, but looking for limbs to get to my goal weight of 42lbs on my 21" hoyt excel. My question is, is it better to get limbs rated for 17inch riser that are heavier probably 50lb limbs and shoot them lighter at 42ish or get limbs rated for 25 inch riser and shoot 30ish...

    I found a older Hoyt/Easton Polaris in the local pawn shop here in town. It is 62" 30#@28". I traded it for my old ruger 10/22. It sucks because if I had cash I could have bought it for $60. I think I still had an even trade. I saw that one of these Hoyt's went for $200 on ebay in the same...

    I shoot Beman ICS Hunters (black shafts). I want to color the shafts a lighter color for better visibility in low light conditions. What kind of paint should I use?

    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 -...

    Hey all, I have a ProLine WARF that I like a lot. I may have to pick up another WARF riser for my nephew who is brand new to the bow. He would prefer a lighter weight riser than what mine is. Mine also DOESN'T have any added weight to it. So can you all tell me what some of the lighter...

    I was out yester day shooting broadheads out of two of my bows and I had planned to shoot 125 Phantoms out of my Warfbow and 125 Snuffers out of my other bow. The Warfbow is 55# shooting a 450 grain arrow at 185 fps and the other bow is 58# shooting 640 grain arrows at 170 fps, both at my draw...
