    I know the Kaya K-Storms and Kaya Delphinus limbs are no longer made, but you can still find new old stock online for around $225. And since there is almost no information on the Delphinus limbs (the wood core version of the K-Storms) anywhere online I figured I'd share this little bit of info...

    I hope I'm not opening a can of worms here (just trying to ask and learn)… A good friend of mine (who is also on the board here) got a Border CH recently, and I was trying to learn more about the super recurve concept in general, as well as how to calculate performance numbers, something...

    I have a wing archery SWIFT WING 66" S-2973 42# I was given this bow years ago (around 96 or so) and used it for a few years. I thought it was lost then recently found it in my father's atic. Other than a few rub marks, it looks fine. Can anyone tell me anything about it. How old is it? Can I...

    I am trying to accumulate serial number for the most popular Shakespeare Bows, The Sierra, The Yukon, and the Necedah. When Shakespeare shut it's door in 1976 the company began to destroy information. It wasn't intentional but over the years all the information about the archery branch of the...

    If you take a .530 shaft that is dead nuts tuned with 70 grains up front and swap it for a .590 shaft. How much would you have to reduce the tip weight to maintain the tune?? No other changes same make model and length just .60 softer. Thanks Matt

    I got a dozen arrows recently that have numbers hand-written on them 4.76 (two of these) 4.78 (three) 4.79 (three) 4.82 4.83 (two) 4.91 The guy somehow finds the stiff side of the arrow and marks it - compounders would use this for the top of the arrow (or the bottom?) My understanding is that...

    I have a limb butt here from a well established ILF limb. the mass of this limb butt with metal work comes in at 87.7 grams. This is cut off about 1" back from the fadeout. Our limb butt of the same length comes in at 66.3grams. So there is a range of limb butt weights. but it will give you a...

    Well ya live and ya learn (maybe). This morning Wingnut and I did the numbers on five different risers and five different sets of limbs. Plotted the force draw curves and dynamic effeciency, etc. this is an on going project. In the past, for example, what I have done is mount a pair of limbs...

    OK, ok, so now I'm really curious. I'm shooting a little 58" Dalaa 56# at 28", with 400 grain carbons at 205 fps. I'm curious to know what numbers other Dalaa shooters are getting. I can shoot a little 350 grain carbon at 216 fps, the one I'm using for 3D's, but I'd like to know what kind of...

    I finally received my email that I am up on the waiting list for an A&H ACS bow. Shot several at Compton last year and really liked them. Best shooting longbow I have ever shot. I finalized my order for a three piece aluminum riser 48#@29" bow. My plan is to have them do a wood grain film...

    I have not seen many CM performance figures, so thought I'd stick some up there.... I knew they weren't slugs, but quite frankly I was a little surprised: CM Hunter 1. [email protected] I draw 30" and it is about [email protected] 535 gr (roughly ie +-5 gr) arrow with 5" vanes. Shooting split finger with a tab and...

    I was at the archery range today and did some chronograph work on a few bows. Shooting off-the-shelf on all bows with minimal silencers on string and using a glove.
