    In May Jinkster posted a good thread about Limb bolt turns out so now I have a question about turns in. My concern deals with the outside angle of the limb versus the limb pad angle. Like many of you, I have a number of ILF risers (too many). Any way, the limb pad angles range from 15 degrees to...

    Bare Bow - Flipper and plunger - 33lbs ATF - 1916 Platinum W/125, BH 7.75 and 8" (Exactly what OnTarget2 called for) Here are a couple of pics of my bare shaft tuning. As some know, I trust the OnTarget2 program to help select the perfect arrow and I tune with bare shafts before I add fletch...

    Well my longbow quest continues. I still would like to find a longbow I can shoot for beans and so with the coming indoor season I am trying once again. I also received a copy of MBBII for Christmas, so I have the further inspiration of Larry Lien shooting his longbow so fluidly. I have...

    I wonder whether we shouldn't give the anonymous(?) inventor of the pie plate at 20 yards the benefit of the doubt. Was he really encouraging mediocre shooting? Perhaps he meant this: The pie plate isn't where your average groups go, but where all your arrows go... every single one including...

    For a long time, I had been unwilling to merge the pre-draw in Kisik Lee's BEST method into the raising of the bow. I knew I was wasting time and energy, but preferred to keep these steps apart to get them 'just right'. I've now been working on it for several days and find I can save up to two...

    I weighed the Jim & Buddy bow tonight...with a 7 1/8" brace height, it pulls 62# @ 29"....I thought that it felt a little heavy....But, the draw force was nice...51 1/2 # @ 26"...55# @ 27"..59# @ 28"...62# @ 29"...A bit stiff from 27" to 28", then smooths out some, maybe??...L.O.L...27" is My...

    Some guys may remember that over this summer, I used quinn stallion limbs and an old provantage riser to create what I call the quinnvantage. Since that time, I have acquired a second set of limbs, which are heavier and had the riser powdercoated. So far, at my 31" draw, I have a set of limbs...

    As he usually does, O.L got me thinking... I know David has done some pretty extensive testing with string silencers and I'm sure given the time he'd like to do more....and I believe he's settled on wool puffs (light) in something similar to a 1/3...1/3 arrangement on the string...two...

    well, i got a string from robert taylor(thanks again rob) and made up a few more homemade string silencers this time outta a old f.f string. set the brace and nock height and went out to tune her up. first shot was silent but a little stiff due to being an overspined 27.5" gt 5575 and a little...

    After reading the "flipper/plunger" thread, I wanted to ask a similar question. I started using an elevated rest soon after taking up the bow (late 60s). Back then, the rest of choice was the Hoyt Pro. Shot my first three deer using a Red Wing Hunter, cedar arrows, Bear Razorheads, and the Hoyt...

    I have posted and said that where Christianity seems contradictory, it is really in paradox (seems contradictory, nevertheless is true). I ran across the following prayer tonight. It really illustrates some of what I was trying to get at; that is: the paradoxes of Christianity. John MacArthur...

    As an experiment I tried putting some of the little micro-limbsavers on the limbs of the 38# PSE Zone limbs. (I've given up of the #34 Hoyt GM limbs) I tried the limbs first on the GM riser and then twisted the string up an put'em on the Mizar. The string is a fairly light small diameter FF...
