    Hey everybody, I'm new to this forum. I've been shooting compound archery for a couple years and would like to get into traditional archery. I have an old Browning Summit II that my wife bought for me years ago, but never really used. Has anybody "Warfed" one of these? I had never even...

    Hi TradTalk, Longtime bowhunter and shooter, mostly compound but have been dabbling in trad for a few years. Found my way over from ArcheryTalk because I needed info on (s/q)warfing a bow. I have an early '90s era Golden Eagle Falcon Flame that blew a steel cable 15 years ago and has been...

    So here's my take on a "poor mans 'high performance' ilf hunting bow." I started off with a Hoyt Excel 21" riser I picked up off of eBay for $150 and a set of das ILF carbon foam limbs (med, 51# @ my 29" draw) off of the classifieds here, again paid $150 for those. I sorta feel like I stole...

    As some know, I do some leatherwork, making bracers, both bow and arrow quivers, knife sheaths....... I am starting my hand at mounted archery. Next month I will be riding in a two day mounted clinic and I decided to make a new quiver for the occasion. My current quiver just doesn't spread the...

The screws holding the limb pockets on snapped when i was shooting and I am outside the warranty date for the bow so now I'm stuck with a bow without limb pockets. I was wondering if i could make this possibly fit an...

    I've been very lucky in that, during my life, I've been able to visit some of the finest museums in the world. Whenever I visit, I'm always on the lookout for examples of archery equipment portrayed in works of art. Last week I was at the Hermitage museum in St Petersberg, Russia and while...

    In the midst of buying, trying, selling and more recently "Gifting" bows away?...Robertfishes awesome amberboo/black glass shorts found themselves orphaned and riser-less once again as I thought..."This is Ridiculous"..and no way was I going to let them rot in a drawer. It seemed they preformed...

    Just got a used black bear warf and it has truck bed liner on it, I'm wanting to do a camo pattern but I'm wondering what I should do. I'm going to strip it, but after that what process should I go through ? Priming? Sanding? I've been thinking about using some of the higher durability krylon...

    My current project is to assemble a good inexpensive ILF takedown for informal target practice and hunting, with a wooden riser and a couple sets of "hybrid" longbow limbs -- one (say, 35 pounds) for target practice on form and one (say, 55 pounds) for hunting. Over all length 62-64". Your...

    Had a set of XQ-1 limbs and a PSE warf that had 2 different camo patterns. Well, thought it needed a face lift. Here are some before pics. Here are the mid way. I still need to put a clear on them and may put a little green on them. The colors are dark earth brown and sand. Will post a final...

    This project started years ago when I first became interested in recurves/longbows after years of shooting compounds. I stumbled across this site, gained a whole lot of knowledge from the good folks here. I also learned about "Warfs" and thought to myself that is a great idea and have been...

    I wonder if any of the forum members who make their own leather equipment (quivers, bracers, knife sheaths etc) could help with technical issue on decorating a molded knife sheath ... here's the story .. A few years ago I purchased an excellent book, Knives and Scabbards by Cowgill, De...

    I have an Hoyt Raider w/intruder limbs. Can this bow be warfed? would like to make an ILF style long bow.

    If you have a 25" ilf riser, would you put a straight edge from the edge of the limb pad where the limb rides to the other. Now measure the distance 90° to the straight edge to the deepest part of your grip. Please post riser ID, grip used, and if grip is low, medium or high. It would be...
