    Hey everyone, I want to ask, where are you placing your bow hand on the grip? Do you let your index finger slide up to the hilt? Up to last night, I was postioning my hand somewhere in the middle of my Jager 2.0 medium grip where the rubberized part is, and I'd be averaging 8.5 per arrow on a...

    so I was thinking this thru last night, and I get a lot of pressure on my ring finger when shooting 3 under with a tab, my middle finger is in the corner of my mouth I used to touch my pinky finger to my thumb when shooting, then changed to relaxing my pinky, hooking my thumb under my jaw to...

    I was looking for threads with pictures of string hand pictures of how your hand should contact your face properly? I read a few things but didn’t find any pics. I know it’s kind of a tough pic to get. I guess my question is what part of your thumb should contact your face and where? Should your...

    Just wanted to let you guys know I am stepping down from being a moderator. So if someone would like to fill the position talk to Larry. I will also be leaving this site as it is going down hill. The usual suspects ruin it for me. The reason I came to this site was because of the useful...

    Hi Everyone. Needing some expert advice! I am new here. Just signed up to ask a few questions about bow design. I am working on a new traditional style takedown bow design for a patent I own and wanted to get some input from as many people as I can. I am by no means a bow design expert and...

    I've seen a lot of people doing this. I saw some explanation.But I want to hear what you have to say about this ¿What are the advantages? I shot with a straight hand position with the fingers closed and a deep hook. Thanks and sorry if there was another post about this I couldn't find it :P

    Contrary to what I've read about this, I have found that 2 different 23" risers with 2 different sets and material composition of long limbs they tune, group and feel the best with the limb bolts turned out + or - one turn out from bottomed out.I have a 32"draw and these shoot way better...

    So I originally set up my tempest with a non-micro adjust springy. Worked fine but I decided to upgrade to the adjustable which also worked fine until I tried installing my kwikee quiver. The quiver did not have enough room to slide into the bracket with the micro adjust knob. So I moved the...

    How do you set the elbow so it is in correct position? can you do this by raising the bow arm?

    I'm not talking about how high or low the position the limbsaver should be from the fadeouts. I'm more interested in the reason why we put them on the belly of bow instead of the back, other than aesthetic reasons. I bring this up because I was watching olympic archery with Ki Bo-Bae shooting...

    I'm playing with some arrows and finding consistently that they are more forgiving when the back of the point's shank is a least a little ways in front of the button. Enough so that breaking off a section of point on my shorter arrows actually made them more forgiving despite the loss of FOC...

    Have lately been shooting a korean trad bow & the combo of super light 52" bow with an easy draw out to 31" got me thinking that my hex5 limbs weren't ideally placed on a 25" riser - enter a $9 piece of red oak & a morning off & 4hrs later I had a roughed out 21' solid wood riser. Lots of...

    I've been working in improving my shot control over the last few weeks with some good results. I shoot right handed, split fingers and cant my bow. Something I noticed recently is by changing my finger position on the string I tend to shoot better. I use a deep hook and used to pull with all...

    Most reference material talks about the bow hand grip going down the "lifeline"... but here's my question: Are you meant feel the bottom of the grip pressing in the bony part of your palm? Or is the feeling of the grip meant to be in web part of your hand? I have a weird bow arm - basically...

    Been beavering away to get my bow grip stable/consistent & finally nailed down what look to be torque effects of a J-draw vs drawing directly to the rear - yellow Lt nocks are J-draw vs orange nocks from straight rearward draw which are on target (20 yds) .. don't know if anyone else has seen...

    Interesting bit of minutiae ... just replaced a low grip with a higher one & noticed that I was getting string slap on my index finger & arrows impacting left - my finger sling has always been attached to my middle finger - moved the attachment point to my index & things centralized...am...

    I am new to tuning a bow for shooting off the shelf. I was wondering about what is normal for nock locator height. I am shooting a 70 inch longbow with about a 7 1/8 inch brace height. I am currently using the nock locator that Falco installed on the string that came with the bow. It is at 5/8...
