    I bought my grandson an Martin Hatfield a few years back and he loves archery and the bow. Unfortunately, while storing the bow one of the limbs twisted. I would like to replace the limbs or figure out how to repair the one that twisted. Martin stopped making the bow in 2005, and a large fire...

    Is there a repair that will make this a serviceable riser? It is a damon howatt diablo compound with wood riser and I wondered if you can repair a crack like this? Even if it is drilling out from the front and glueing a dowel or something like that through the crack.

    I broke a string while adjusting a nock and the limbs whipped forward and one of the ILF mounts broke. Can this riser be repaired with new brass hardware without compromising the integrity of the riser? Thank you, Phll

    I have an older friend who never did archery. She has shown an interest in it, but tells me she has had 2 rotator cuff surgeries with 5 anchors. Doctor said no more than 10lbs. Anybody have any experience with this type of surgery? Is it 10lbs for life or is this something that can be built up...

    Pretty new to this sport, so I dont need to say that I miss the entire target once in a while and have to go hunting for the arrow in the brush. They dig themselves into the moist soft dirt. When I find it, fletching/feathers are a bit out of shape and dont go back when stroking together. I...

    I am buying the following older bronze Dalaa which has had the shelf hump and the finger groves milled down. I plan to give the Dalaa an arrow rest and not shoot off the shelf. It will be used for 3D and target shooting. What do you think I should do with the exposed areas? Have the entire...

    One of my bows has some small scatches in the glass on the belly. So should I put some nail polish on it? Maybe super glue ? Any other suggestions.

    Question for those of you in the know...I just got my first bow about 2 weeks ago and while I was out shooting it last night, the serving frayed and broke between the two nock points that the bow came set up with. What is the best way to go about fixing this? I think I have some kevlar thread...

    Quick shout-out about Chuck Deshler at Two Tracks Bow Company. I had him reconfigure the arrow rest area on one of my bows -- radius, narrow, bevel, etc. Great work! Couldn't be happier! Plus he and Chris are nice folks. If you need some work or are looking for a new bow or a U- finish blank...

    I have access to a kayak with a 9.5" "L" shaped crack below the skirt and above the waterline. Any repair advice would be welcome. My basic understanding involves acetone cleaning, rounding sharp edges, then layering on the fiberglass and resin. But I've never done it. Anyone have the tips...

    I've got a couple of little cosmetic only chips in the finish of a set of older hoyt limbs. I was thinking a little nail polish might pretty them up. Any reason why I shouldn't do it? Thanks, Bob
