    Hey folks, Having watched the remarkable demonstration video on how to make a Flemish twist string without a jig by Clay Hayes I'm interested in having a crack at this purely for the fun of it, the fascination of it, and for the self-sufficiency I'm craving in this trad world. This kind of...

    So I have a nice bow I would like to sell and I want to make sure I do it right and everyone is happy. I live in Canada and I imagine that it will likely get shipped to the States. With that being said, how does everyone pack it to make sure it does not get damaged in shipping? or how or what do...

    I’m completely new to Traditional but I’ve been bowhunting for 12 years so I’m not completely green. I need opinions on the best arrows I should get to learn to shoot and eventually hunt with. I’ve always used Gold Tip so should I stick with that with trad? I’m believe in “buy once cry once”...

    Long time lurker but finally have questions I can't find answers to. I have a couple of Grozer biocomposite bows. I've emailed Grozer a dozen times, even using multiple accounts to try different angles, but Eva frkm Grozer WILL NOT answer a single question. Maybe you guys can help out. 1)...

    I have a friend (I know it's startling) with a 32 inch DL. WONDERING if custom wood bows are built that accomodate the 32" draw length without exploding. IF you have experience with this, sing out with experience, and if easy tell bowyers that fall into the above category well? thanks in...

    Hello, I bought a second hand recurve bow in June and have been shooting it ever since. About two months ago I started to develop tennis elbow in my left arm (right handed). When this started I spent some time trying to figure out why I was getting tennis elbow. My bow does have a bunch of...

    I DUNNO. So I'm asking. About all my knowledge (skimpy at best) revolves around the low-stretch stuff. I have a vintage Browning Wasp 56" bow coming probably TODAY. Guessing it has & "needs" DACRON. SOME SAY (I've read) B55 is significantly better than the old B50 standby. What say you that have...

    I have been an infrequent member for a while but haven't been able to shoot my recurve for quite a few years. Is there a section here where I can find answers to the following: - How to install string silencers - How to tie nocking points (and what material I need) - How to set brace height I...

    So I caught a cool video on YouTube where Byron Ferguson performs a bunch of trickshots, and he both did and said something that puzzled me. I wanted to check whether or not he was right. 1. First, he strung his 72# longbow without a stringer tool. He just propped it on his foot, bent the bow...

    Hello, I'm totally new to archery and bows in general and I wanted to try it for a long time. Today my first bow arrived and it's very beautiful! I really like the coloring, the wood and the craftsmanship. The bow is a bit worn but I think it still holds up pretty well. I started doing some...

    Been looking at Border Bows website and trying to figure out how to put items in cart. Can't figure out how to speak to anyone, as I don't want to run up international charges. Anyone have experience ordering from Border? Looking at the Covert Hunter with M or L limbs in Hex 7 or 8. All input...

    Hi 2 things i want to know First, is a riser built from linen micarta legal in the Trad. Hunter class? Second, how are the targets placed? Is it more like hunting situations with narrow shot windows etc. or is it like WA where everything is unobstructed and "highway-like"?

    After finally what a warf bow is, I went and pulled out an old bear compound that was just given to me. After looking at it, I believe it is a good candidate for a warf bow. I believe it had Master Bucks II wrote on the limb. My questions are: The limb pockets on the riser are about 1/2" deep...

    I recently bought a Damon Howatt Ventura. On the inscriptions it says 38# @ 28" HV 1349 AMO 66". Was this bow made in 1971?

    For those that string walk and use the string to eyebrow as a second reference point, what do you do on the longer crawls when the string angle changes and it doesn't touch the eyebrow anymore? I started playing with the eyebrow reference point and noticed that at 20 yards and closer the string...

    Since I don't have anybody locally to help me setup my strike plate, I'm asking you guys to do this properly. Does the strike plate need to be radiused just like the shelf or can it be flat? Can it have square edge, or should it be slanted edge?

    I’m kind of piggybacking on the recent “what do you see“ post, but narrowing the conversation to archers who anchor at the back of their jaw, and/or near their ear, or even behind that. Is your string blur well to the right of your arrow? (assuming RH shooter) If so, can you align your arrow...

    There is a trad only shoot this weekend near me. Thanks to Dave H., my initial hesitations to do 3D rather than just targets has evaporated. The whole estimating distance thing was a concern. Turns out I'm not as bad as I thought I was. Not great, but not losing-arrows-bad. Had great time...

    Following up on this portion of an EXCELLENT post... Do we know how Samick rated the draw weights on their limbs? Does it change if the limb is rated for 25" or 19" or 17" riser? What does the letter after the riser length signify? (Ie in 17H.) While I'm at it... what is the performance...

    I'm not sure I'm using the right term, Turkish bows, Oriental bows........ shooting off hand, not shelf or rest, and release by pinching arrows....... Rather than derail Brentona's thread, I'll ask it here. Questions, purely from an interested observer, not that I'll ever try this style of...
