    I noticed something today while shooting three fingers only with a bow tuned zero tiller for three under shooting off the shelf . Pretty accurate out to around 20 yards , but past that I’m having to gap . While shooting around my backyard range this afternoon, I shot low using three under at a...

    a friend is trying to use some older Hoyt Pro Medalist limbs on an ILF riser. These are thicker & flat butts, no rockers. Mine are .732" at limb fitting hole, & my Winex is more like a tad under .6". WHo makes ILF fittings that are longer than normal? like by a tenth & a half. I KNOW - could...

    Is going with longer limbs a good way of getting that longer bow when you can't get a longer riser? For example, I've got a 21" riser with medium (24") limbs. Would long (25") limbs get the same effect as getting a 23" riser?

    I really don't get it. I mean, finger pinch. Every time someone brings up a topic, some recently, and it twists into something where SOMEONE brings up finger pinch, I cringe some, because, I literally don't get it. I understand it when proponents of longer bows say they are more accurate with ...

    In the course of rehabbing a recent shoulder injury I was left not shooting for 2 weeks and then shot a 20# youth bow off and on last week and in deciding I was ready to get back on my lightest DW big boy bow?...I spun the limb bolts out on my Spig 650 Club bringing it down too it's lightest DW...

    So I haven’t really heard much about trad guys running this set up so I thought I’d chime in with a combo that I’ve come up with. Digging through the LAS catalogue I saw the victory RIP xv shafts as the lightest GPI option out there, I may have missed anything lighter but 6.4 GPI on a 350 spine...

    Hey Guys, Just a quick one I am finding the longer I hold at draw the more my accuracy drops. When I am shooting my best I draw, settle into anchor aim/hold 3-5 secs and then shoot,shooting like this I can group under 4inches at 15 yards. As I am still learning and trying to improve as we all...

    One of the IBO shooters in the Push video gave some advice to shoot as long of a bow as you can. Ive recently quit shooting groups, now I move to random areas within a 32 yard area and shoot for an IBO score. When I compare the results between the Gen 2 17"riser vs my 21" Dalaa the 21 tops...

    The moment we move away from hunting where shorter is desirable and useful, it's clear that target shooters vastly prefer 25" risers. Why exactly? It can't be pure mass = stability, because you can get mass in shorter risers. Or do longer risers better distribute the mass over a longer...

    The general opinion of target archers better than me seem to be that a longer brace light lets them shoot more accurately. And the bows they win competitions with tend to suggest they are right. Maybe this refers to more traditional bows only - Im not sure. But Im wondering what the actual...

    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...

    My nephews have Bear Titans. Simple bows but they shoot well enough if you get the arrows sorted. And they are well suited to the knock around habits of 11 year old boys. Theyare fun to shot and they are ambidextrous. Ive tried shooting them but they stack something awful at my 29-30 DL. Does...

    Gentlefolk...in light of recent events involving my 1st go round with a set of SR type limbs and my nearly immediate sale of such?...it seems it's left a double helping of egg on my face whereby the same limbs that gave me untold tuning fits?...allegedly dialed right in for the subsequent owner...

    I have an Oneida Aeroforce I'm rebuilding. Want to shoot the old GK Huntmaster 2000 rest. Unfortunately the one I got has the "regular" cushion plunger. Riser is thick and cut out for overdraw, so i need a longer plunger. Was looking at AAE Masterlock, comes in two lengths? Will a "long" work...

    I can understand for hunting we generally want as short a riser as we can comfortably shoot, but for say barebow competition, its seems 25" and 27" risers seem to dominate. Is is really just about riser weight? Or long overall length which makes is easier on the string angle to the fingers?
