    Hi everyone, I'm very interested in the Covert Hunter however I have found nowhere on Border's website how to to choose the limb length. I have seen posts on this forum where Sid explains that you choose limb length to suit your draw length and then select the riser that will give you the bow...

    So I stumbled on a chance to buy a 21" Hoyt Satori this morning from Matt Davis on Facebook for $150 and just couldn't pass it up, but it doesn't have a grip with it. I've owned quite a few bows now and my hands down favorite grip on bows I've owned or just shot is the locator grip on the...

    Hey guys. Well as of late I've been absolutely obsessed with making a true selfbow. So much so that I look at every tree I can see for the perfect stave. I have dabbled in selbows before (red oak, maple backed) but it took too much set to be any good. I've done tons of research and have good...

    My bow set up was given to me the way it sits. 29 inch easton blood line arrows with normal aluminum inserts and a 300gr up front. Spine is 480 6.8 gpi. I'm looking to get away from the 300 grains up front because I can't pick them up easily in store. I'm not a fan of having to order online...

    Doing some window shopping for aluminium and carbon shafts at the moment. The bowyer suggested around 10gpp for my flatbow, so I need to be looking at ~550gr total weight (53lb bow with a little extra draw - need to confirm exact poundage). I managed 530s with my wood arrows without issue, as...

    I'm getting new arrow for my Dorado. With the amount of centershot, would I be better off selecting shafts a little on the stiff, rather than weak side.

    I am wanting to build some 11/32 port orford cedar arrows to shoot from my 45# Kodiak Magnum. I draw 29.5" and am currently shooting 30" 2016's. These shoot great with 125gr tips and 3x5" shield cut fletchings. I have never used wood shafting before and am trying to figure out the spine. I used...

    I just got my Bob Lee Signature Elite and I love it. It is 60" and 46# @ 28". Riser is bubinga with mappa burl overlay and mappa burl limbs. I was just shooting it with some arrows I had on hand and it seems to like some of the 29" 2016 with 125 grain tips very well. I draw 27.5" and was...

    Good morning, I am new to the site, and recently making my way back to traditional archery shooting. I've been out of the game for several years, and recently had a new recurve bow built for me by Lynn Harrelson out of Alabama. My bow pulls exactly 50lbs at my draw length of 28.5" and I am...

    If the bow riser is cut 3/16ths inch past center, is that selected as -0.1875 or +0.1875 on the calculator?

    i am looking for a 17" hunting and a 19-21" "target" riser. i shoot off the shelf with no modern rest (just built up as needed) and with no stabilizer. i had a titan II and III which shot good but i didnt like the balance and the way the riser reacted as a bare riser. are there any risers you...

    I will confess to being as interested in the aesthetics of equipment as its functionality. This is kind of a "book by its cover" thing, but I am an unabashed lover of pretty gear. When we select woods for traditional Okinawan weapons, hardness, weight and flexibility are all factors in...

    Hi All, I'm taking a 'break' this summer and working on my barebow (normally shoot FITA). Of course the first step is tuning, and I'm getting some weird results. My 560 spine ACCs (100 gr pt, 29.5 inches to back of point) actually grouped with my 440 spine ACCs (100 gr pt, 30 inches to back of...

    Need some ideas on selection of carbon arrow for IBO I shoot 40# @ 28" re-curve off of the shelf. I draw 26.5" (yeah I am not very tall, or have very long arms) for my 3D rig. I'm currently shooting Goldtip Traditionals 3555 @ 30" with 145 grain field points. Just a simple insert and nock and...

    The 610 Navs shoot perfect with 43# Conventional limbs but show far too weak with the Hex6's I've reduced point weight down to 80g and wound the limbs to min and only option left really is cutting the 28.5" arrows shorter or new arrows, I'm not happy about messing with the plunger setting, I...
