    I started the process of tuning my stringwalking bow today. I had done some bareshaft tuning but today I started the Tuning for Tens method. Previous bareshaft testing had shown that 600's were working better than 500's. I had never shot a shaft that weak before and only had the 600 for testing...

    TT is a great community, and Grant MacDonald exemplifies the helpful expertise that is so shared by our members. In the past, Grant has used his machining skills to make me one of his famous "Moon Rock" fitted weights for my Best Moon, and then he turned down some crossbow screw-in inserts to...

    It was exactly 2 years ago to this date that I began to grow bored of shooting and competing with my PSE Omen wheel-bow as I stumbled into the pro-shop at White's Tackle in Fort Pierce, Florida to once again carouse the pegboards in search of "that next bolt-on accessory" to take my accuracy and...

    I got to thinking about training mentally for an archery competition that lasts for several days and/or in excess of 100 arrows. My question, "Do you train specifically to be able to shoot for a specific length (duration) in time, for a specific number of consecutive arrows or both. To explain...

    Hi all, I have finally come to the conclusion that I am going to have to seriously consider this aiming method to further my archery. I have been a student of Len Cardinale for the last year and my form and consistency are now where I want them. I have had major problems with gapping and Point...

    Just as an experiment, put yourself in the place of a person curious about archery and wondering whether the barebow is for him. Then take some of these trad boards on a typical day. Standard topics include: - Does accuracy matter? - Do we aim? - Do our tools look stunningly beautiful? - My...

    Hi everyone! Hey I just found out about this forum! Really cool! Looking forward to learning a lot! I have just started to delve into archery again and am looking at getting a new recurve. A long time ago I had a PSE Optima that was pretty fun, but now I'd like to get back into archery...

    If higher FOC is so great, why don't the compound guys, or Bob Gordon do it?

    Well, just thought I'd say "Howdy" to everyone on the board and talk to ya'll a bit. I've been into firearms and bows for most of my life and in the last couple years, having owned just about every kind of modern firearm you can name I just got to the point where I couldn't deal with it any more...

    Remember when I said there were a few guys who were serious gang-banger ghetto-trash that just moved in upstairs from me? Yeah, well they've opened shop now. Full fledged crack house 10 feet over my head. The front door to the building is locked so I've got groups of people hanging around my...

    Despite the heat wave, I actually saw my breath this morning...that means one thing... Time to get serious... No more messing with five bows, FOC, different carbons, different aluminums... Start shooting unmarked distances from different stances... Sharpen and re-sharpen the Zwickey's 'til...

    Serious Question on heavy # bows I'm relativly new to archery and want to find some (if possible) un biased and un macho reason for really heavy weight bows... Here's what I've learned so far... there isn't any game in the US the needs anything bigger than about a 55# recurve or modern longbow...
