    Hello, A new forum member here, but not new to archery. My archery days started over 50 years ago when I was 9 and got a recurve selling cards door to door. I loved that first bow. Fast forward 30 years and I shot a Hoyt compound target bow (40 lbs with 50 percent let off bowhunter class) in...

    I have a 50# Samick Red Stag and I love it. I can confidently shoot up to 35yd with it. I also own a 45# Bear Kodiak Magnum (1973) that is top notch, shoots consistently (even with my 29.5" draw), and I wouldn't sell it for anything. I have a few others, all of which I can shoot well enough. I...

To be honest i have only shot the standard Dalaa 60" limbs(wood&carbon) and a set of Winex on that same Dalaa.I did like the Winex limbs over the standard Dalaa limbs but there is a lot of limbs...

    Hi folks, After some rainy weather this year I want to get a metal riser recurve to shoot plastic vanes off an elevated rest for next year. Also the apparent higher level of "tunability" of this type of setup is attractive. I have no experience with these kind of bows so was hoping you might...

    I just got a Quinn TQ it is 35# at 28" . I draw about 30" . I will use aluminum or carbon arrows but not sure what spine to use. Would like to get close so I do not have a great investment in different shafts. I plan on using a release because of nerve damage in my right hand if that matters...
