    Hi, I have a 35# Samick Sage which I’ve owned for 4 months. Shoot split finger, 8” brace height and nocking point bare shaft tuned to 3/8”.

    This is my first ILF limb bow. When I switch limbs my first shot sometimes has a loud pop, after that it shoots fine. I think I have the limbs in right but thinking I might not, thoughts?

    We all know what string noise is, and likely try to mitigate it through tuning or silencers or both. So what affect does string size and type/material play? I would think the older B50 would be quieter, but have recently been told the opposite. Has any definitive sound testing been done? I...

    I have been making and shooting longbows for many years and I have never had this issue before. I'm completely new to Ilf and recurves in general. The problem I am having is my bow is Extremely Loud when shooting 3-under. If I switch to split finger it is quiet through all the settings I have...

    I am getting an annoying sharp snap from my top limb pocket on my DAS Elite & Winex combo. If i draw the bow, let down then pluck the string I get this sharp snapping sound. If I flex the limb forward after letting down it also does it. Just once then it's gone. I have removed detent pin and...
