    Seems to me some field points were not IBO legal? Believe it was bullet points, something about target wear? I just checked IBO website and see no point restrictions. I would like to use the pin points that TopHat sells for wood arrows but would hate to show up and find out my arrows an’it...

    What are the pros and cons of pin nocks? Are they suitable for heavy hunting arrows? I've always shot Easton Classic or Legacy aluminum arrows, but now that there are reasonably straight carbon arrows with enough GPI to make good heavy hunting arrows, I'm starting to play around with carbons...

    I,m kinda new to ILF bows and I bought some carbon ones to try @ my DW which should be 42>lbs. I also have a few rookie questions and would appreciate your help. No.1,I bought some Easton pin nocks and used hot melt glue to attach the pin onto the shaft,should I glue the nock on? I know it...

    Anyone here use Accunock Pin Nocks? I used Accunocks in my Platinum Pluses for ages quite happily. But recently I've been using FMJs with pins and Accunock Pin Nocks and I'm not sure about them. They seem to be sensitive to serving fit in a way that the non-pin ones never were. The mechanism...

    Hey all, Before I stripped everything off my bow to get it shooting right, I had one of the old time brackets on my Morrison ILF 17" aluminum risers with one of the brass pins that were used on compounds many years ago. I just used it for general aiming and not pinpoint shooting. I'm not good...

    I've never had a sight on a traditional bow, but few weeks ago I had a thread based on an observation from my wheelie days, that being as a RH shooter across numerous compounds of all makes that had all manner of rests to ensure the arrows were truly centershot in relation to the string/limbs my...

    Does anyone out there own a Samick bow with a dual pin riser ( red stag, deermaster, nighthawk, etc.)? I would like to know the measurement from the limb mounting bolt to the alignment bolt? I have a Phantom riser I am trying to see what limbs I can buy for it. :help:

    Dean must have snuck this one in quietly. Three rivers has a very well built brass sight pin just like the old days. They are using the hardware from the SRF. I have a pin that I have been using on the tribute. I did not know they had it available online. I shoot gap, fixed crawl, SRF and a...

    Hey all, I have a pretty standard ILF setup that I shoot in my yard and hopefully will use chasing hogs when the time comes. This Morrison 17" riser has all the standard holes to mount all sorts of goodies, but all I want to do is mount a relatively simple pin sight. I dug into my archery box...

    I would like to mount an older 3 pin sight on my 1 piece vintage recurve. I do not want to drill holes. So far, 2 faced tapes that I have tried have not been strong enough to deal with the small area of the two mounting pads (3/8" X 3/8"). If anyone has successfully done this, please let me...

    Will a Beiter pin nock fit a standard GoldTip .246 pin nock bushing ? John

    On the Cheetah 3D's the Mckinney pin nocks don't seem very robust, I've gone through 2 doz in 2 months. Just ordered some Easton G pin nocks to see if they fair any better but thinking of getting some Beiter pin nocks next time I put an order into Alt Services, they cost a a lot more so I'm...

    Here is another example of the type of bows we have been producing for the "Traditional Tattoo Series" line. This is the second one that has been done in the shop. More to come!

    Anyone familiar with X-Buster, please help. I'm contemplating X-Buster 700. The CE website shows only pin nock adapter for 700. It also shows nock bushing (for 350, 400, 500 only). Lancaster shows the pin nock adapter (with the option for various shafts)...

    I just switched to pin nocks. I am using these http://www.lancasterarchery.com/gold-tip-hd-pin-nock.html on GT ultralights with the standard pin here http://www.lancasterarchery.com/gold-tip-246-pin-bushing.html Unlike the "regular" nocks that ship with the arrows, when I draw and let down...

    I'm building a cresting machine, well it is in the design stage now. I am using pin nocks and these are carbon arrows. I will be supporting both ends of the arrow. The insert end is easy, I have a short length of threaded rod that screws into the insert and provides an axle for turning. I...

    I think I'm getting a "buzz", pardon the pun! I know most folks just remove them. This is my first set of ILF limbs and therefore probably a dumb question, but I've never taken them out to see what they look like...I know, how different can a spring be? Was wondering if you wanted to keep...

    What is a good pin nock? I have Mckinney Nocks, and I like them but are a bit long, have tried easton pin Nocks also a bit fragile, going to try CX fivik pin nocks. Has anyone tried easton G pin? Bieter pin nocks? Wow they are expensive for a nock, what are the sizes? 1-2 and asymmetrical...

    I've seen it mentioned several times in passing that using pin nocks has the effect of increasing an arrow's (dynamic) spine. Is there any rule of thumb for just how much stiffer the arrow will become, i.e. will a pin nock/bushing make a .600 act like a .500, or . . . is it a smaller degree of...

    I have an original game Master, The limb alignment pin is .261. My limb bushing does not fit down over the pin completely. Is that correct. I put some tradtech longbow limbs on it and they move around.
