    I know flight archers are secretive bunch and keep their equipment specifications close to their chests. but i'd like to know if there's an optimum GPP for a wooden flight arrow.

    1st question is the prohunter riser I have is close to 24° as best I can measure. It appears based on what I have read here that 17-21 works well though I think I saw some that were even at 15°. So what is the optimum angle? I guess it depends on draw length etc and could vary per individual...

    I don't know what others do or think on this subject so I'm interested in opinions. All My ILF setups have been on min bolt setting, to me it seems to give the most stable tune, just wondered what everybody else prefers and why. Any serious research/testing been done on this?

    For about 3 years now I've shot the same weight OTF for 3D from my iLF rigs, 42#. I sometimes think this is a bit light but then I set up an indoor bow at 38# and really like the feel of it at full draw. I always used to shoot 50 to 51# for 3D when I shot Flatbows in the UK but the yardages...

    How do you figure out how far back to draw for a high under the cheekbone barebow anchor? My question is not so much about how to find an anchor as it is how to know the optimum distance. Thanks

I always felt the bow was a little long for my 27" draw and I wasn't getting the best performance with long Hex5's, the sweat spot in the draw was around my ear. So I felt like I was drawing 2.5" to short. So...

    I was wondering what you guys think is the optimum draw weight for 3d shooting. How do you strike a balance between getting as much arrow speed as possible, and yet still having a manageable draw weight? Mark

    Various threads here and one pretty interesting post by Viper on the LW have got me thinking about draw weight again, and I'm developing a theory. I suspect there is such a thing as an optimum draw weight for each of us (in our respective physical and form conditions, which may of course...

    As you probably know, no matter how hard you work exercising and watching your diet, you will not extend your life by more than a few weeks (months at best). Given this, it seems reasonable to ask why any of us are ever interested in being physically fit. And the answer most people give at...

    Hi, This question is mostly for Das but any answer is welcome. I have some printed matter from DAS Kinetics old site that I can not find now. In those papers I have read that ILF limbs have its optimum performance at a certain draw length/draw weight. How is it? How can I know which is it for...
