    So as not to sideline another discussion... Saw this and it occurred to me, am I using a proper stance? "Most Olympic style archers also use chest protectors. Clearances are very tight when you are fully aligned. That is why I have so many scars on my forearm, unlike some of the trad guys that...

    I understand there are different types of shooting. I go out and fling arrows because I enjoy watching them fly and to just relax and have fun. My question does not pertain to “relaxed fun” shooting. I’m asking what a session should look like if your entire goal is to improve. I’m hoping I...

    Gentlefolk?...I'm well beyond certain that the following I'm about to present to you here will be met with many controversial viewpoints but I am fully prepared to accept such controversy as there's simply no way of getting around the fact that the following is most certainly... "Thought...

    I am curious why all long bows (at least all of them that I have seen) use Flemish Twist strings instead of endless loops. Is there a reason for this? It has been my very limited experience that endless loops are more durable. Thanks for your input! Alan

    Don't know if anyone's been following the world cup but the U.S. has been pretty impressive. Good luck against Belgium tonight.

    With the two recent threads on DAS limb bushings I thought I would give some info on what I have found working with DAS risers and all kinds of ILF limbs. There can be some fitment issues due to the length of the bushings vs. the limb butt thickness. When David first started his DAS connection...

    I have been stringwalking indoors for about a year utilizing uncut heavy arrows and a low anchor (just under the chin) with the string on my nose for my second anchor point and the nock just under my lower lip for my third. I am now trying to take the stringwalking outdoors and want to move to...

    This topic is kind of a spin off of Matt P's What triggers the release? I kind of go into several things here so I thought it best to start a new topic. I am a subconscious releaser. I don't think about the release, I just aim and when the sight picture is right the release just happens...

    What is the proper way to do this. My saber is 17 inches at the lowest point where the limbs seat and 22 at the highest. Thank you.

    Does anybody have the links to the videos that show/explain proper draw? Or can anybody explain it to me here in writing? I'm especially interested in the proper path of the string elbow. I've been experimenting with my draw and so far I found two ways that let me engage my back muscle during...

    Ive shot countless arrows now and I still haven't found a consistent shooting style. Are you supposed to hold your arrow at anchor point and focus, or do you draw back and release the moment you hit anchor? I just have issues with proper form I guess. I want accuracy and consistancy.

    Hello, I've been shooting trad wooden longbows and recurves for a while, but being lefty and living in San Francisco, CA, I never had a chance to do the try-before-you-buy properly. After 'making do' with some costly experiments, I decided to buy a TradTech Titan a year ago, so that I could...

    My opinion is the way to shoot with a clicker is to use it as a release trigger. Much like a back tension release for a compound. It is my observation,from watching archery TV episodes of olympic and world championship matches , that virtually all great Olympic archers use a clicker. And that...

    This question may seem a little funny to some but Im fairly new to this traditional thing. You see I have always had a compound except for my pearson recurve that was the first bow that I ever had. A couple of years ago I ordered a Quinn Black Stallion and was super excited and anxious to get to...

    I bought a Chekmate from another fella on the trading blanket. It was tillered for split-fingered. I've found myself preferring the three under style of shooting. (Actually, my hand is partially amputated. I only have the thumb, index and middle finger left on my drawing hand). Therefore, I'm...

    I know this has been covered probably, but what is the "normal" rule for arrow length for a recurve? Is it 1 inch of arrow past the far side of the bow riser? I've seen lots of photos of archers using arrows that don't protrude past the bow at all when drawn, but I'd like to use my rig for...

    Guys, I'm looking at a lighter set of limbs for my 17" DAS. I draw 27". My question is what is the max pre-load I can safely shoot my bow (1 turn out on the limb bolts, 1/2 turn???). Thanks, Allen

    I've been tinkering with the tiller set up on my DAS and am not totally satisfied with where I'm at. Right now I'm at very close to zero tiller and my arrow flight isn't what it used to be with a little bit of positive tiller. Here's my bow specs; Das Master 17" riser, 52lb. medium Winex limbs...
