    I want to use a 16 lb draw weight bow to focus on form, hook, release, etc. In addition, I hope this practice will help build strength after a long period of inactivity. What arrows should I use? The bow is a 66" takedown recurve and it can easily handle my 27.5" draw as it increases. Material...

    I really love my aluminum ILF riser that has a very narrow, low grip but I'm wondering if anyone knows of a non-metal riser with a similar narrow, low grip like this, such as one where the entire grip section is made from something very strong like G10? G10 and aluminum have a similar tensile...

    I hunt with 43-46# bows and always end up with an arrow weight of about 9.5 gpp. I am always in the 405-420 range. Currently I am shooting 43# and 405 grains. I have no issue with penetration using a two blade head I just would like a little more blood trail. I limit my shots and only take...

    So the last few nights I’ve managed to get out for 20-30 minutes after the kiddos are in bed (It’s just ticked over daylight savings time here in NZ) towards the end of shootable light I start grouping 3” left from 15y-25y in my back yard. At first I put it down to form break down but now I am...

    I’m setting up my 50# black widow. I usually shoot lower to mid 40#. In trying to keep my arrow weight at 550-575 grains. It is liking a full length xx75 2018 with 145 grain heads. Only problem is the foc is like 11%. I usually 15-18%. I intend to use this for pigs and my rescheduled elk...

    Hi all, I’m looking for a one piece longbow to practice form and leisurely shooting, something that is 30lbs at my 30-31” DL. I’ve been searching for bows 68-70 AMO and 25lbs @ 28” but haven’t found much. Southwest Archery Scorpion has a 25lbs option and favorable reviews. Others like the...

    I wanted to see what you guys thoughts was on this. Especially those who are shooting low poundage. Or always have... I have been shooting trad since I was young and there are some durations or times during those years I didn't shoot trad all way through. But still shot compounds regularly...

    Will any shooting accuracy or bow tune problems arise from not centering the serving wraps on the center of the bowstring length? I would prefer to have the servings protection of the string moved down 1” because of the bulky winter coat I wear. I try to keep my stance so the string doesn’t...

    Hi all, I started playing with a fixed crawl on my 60” Morrison max 6 setup (15” riser, long limbs) and no matter what I do with the nock points, the arrow comes off quite nock low. It’s apparent from 5yds to 30yds so I don’t think it’s bouncing off the riser. My theory is that with my 31” draw...

    I've been playing around with low FOC (7-6-5%) and making long shots, trying to get a maximum distance.......without the arrow's path becoming dodgy and haphazard. Has anyone here ever done this and arrived at a definite low FOC limit?
