    Back in August of last year I posted an explanation of the linear approximation of the draw force curve and what we can learn from this simple model. However, what you gain in simplicity, you lose in accuracy. Still, it does a pretty good job of explaining bow performance from a qualitative...

    I was looking at Kegans carbon bows he just started making over at Omega(they look great.) When someone takes basically same bow design and switches it to carbon from fiberglass what is generally the performance gain?

    I'm returning to traditional archery after a several year layoff and I'm shooting and ILF setup for hunting and 3D. My bow is a 21" Hoyt Excel riser with a set of medium 38# Samick Carbon/ Wood limbs. My arrows are full length ICS Bowhunter 500s that weigh 400 grains with a 125 grain point...

    Okay gents, I was late so the thread was closed on AT. There was a thread that unquestionably, questioned Rich Barker's tab at LAS. As a guy who shot that event, and got my ass kicked by the way, let me say, Rich Barker shot fair and won outright. Ask Bobby, Dewayne, or John if they felt Rich...

    I would think the ILF system was overwhelmingly geared to first Olympic style recurves, and more recently shorter risered recurves. If shooting a 21 to 25 inch riser are there any quirks or drawbacks or pluses to using long bow limbs on them?

    I chronoed my hex6 longs #53.5 and 580 gr. arrow and hit 182 fps. I read about guys breaking 200 fps. Can you share your set up with me? Just curious as I was playing with a ke/ mo Calculator. Post total arrow wieght, bow weight at full draw and speed. If possible arrow details, length bushing...

    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...

    There are dozens of threads about draw weight and lethality of bows at a given poundage. I'm just curious to hear what the performance increase is on a bow by adding a couple pound of draw weight. For example if I went from 50 to 53 pounds of draw weight what type of increase in speed would I...

    I have a Win & Win Black Wolf riser which is ILF. I was considering getting Border 7.0 or 7.5 limbs for it. Those of you that have put these limbs on ILF risers tell me about the performance. I hear a lot about this tuning fork vibration after the release and have been reluctant to order because...

    I had a chance to shoot the new Z4 Limbs today on the Tribute riser at Three Rivers. I have not had the opportunity to shoot Morrison Max4's " I have a order in"or the Border Hex series. At this time I can not compare limbs. I plan on doing so this year at some point. Here is a great read on...

    I Have two sets of Border Hex 6 BB2 limbs. One I shoot maxed out for 42# while the others are a bit heavy so I shoot them 3 turns out for 53#. Both on a 17" Titan II riser. For those of you that have similar limbs, do you find that they shoot any better at min or max poundage? I was looking...

    Shot 3D tourney Sat and half way through the Internal BB weight must have come lose, the noise from the bow was horrible and it felt like the limbs were out of sync on some shots, it was a 2 arrow round, although keeping them in the kill (almost), no two arrows grouped. I keep the Alan keys in...

    Hi all - I'm currently sitting at 30# at my 27" DL, and feeling generally "dominating" over this poundage, when I'm not fatigued. Due to various injuries, I don't think I will be upping poundage beyond 35#, so my question is: am I likely to get a good bump in speed / performance from higher...

    Hi Folks, I think this forum is the best place for my question. First I'll give you a glance on my intention. I bought a used Hoyt Buffalo (35# 62") in good conditions, cause I decided too make the switch from Compound Archery to 'Neo Traditional Archery'. I made my first steps with a Bearpaw...

    Im familiar with border hex5 and6, tradtech carbon extreme and extreme bf but how do some of the other manufacturers compare for performance. Like euka, win &win etc. Im primarily looking for a blazing fast setup for hunting whitetail. Looking to lower my poundage but still retain the speed...

    Dear All, Could you help me, what is the main performance difference between the "old" Border Talisman Gold and the CXG and the CVH ? I hope somebody tried this three limbs and could give me some impression about the limbs. Smoothness, speed, tolerance and own opinions... For example what is...
