    Hello! I'm having a devil of a time coming up with any information about Bear recurves from the '90s. I have just become the owner of a '94 Kodiak and I'm trying find out if it's safe to use "fastflight" or other long strand, non-stretch polymer type strings on it. I found the old bear...

    Due to injuries I have been away from archery for a while. I make own skinny strings. When I was making strings 450+, 8125 and ultra cam were what people were using. I personally use 450+ but have 8125 and ultra cam. Is there another material out there now. I see that the string manufacturers...

    To those of you that have shot the skinny shafts. (.166 ID) I'm dialing in my hunting rig for this season and have decided to bust open my piggy bank and go with the Valkyrie system. I'm shooting a Dryad ILF 17inch riser with Long limbs drawing [email protected] Currently the only arrows that I own that...

    I'm planning on shooting a couple indoor leagues this summer and I was wondering what everybody's thoughts on skinny arrows. It seems locally that most guys are using what I would consider line cutters. My thought is that the skinny arrow (ie. X impacts, VAP gamers) would allow my aiming point...

    I have been wanting to give these a try for a while. I thought I would ask for some help on the setup. This set would be for a Great Northern Lil' Creep, #46 @ 28". These bows are cut 1/8" from center. I think I would like it to be around mid 400 gr, with as much FOC as I can get. I am planning...

    I've decide I want to play a little with skinny lighter arrows. Here's my requirements. 30"+ arrow 50# recurve 275-300 grs plus tip weight. I'm shooting for 450 total with 145/150 tip. (9gpp) I've never played with any carbons beyond Carbon Express -Terminator Hunter or Heritage. This whole...

    I've always had a weakness for the super .220-.225 OD, skinny carbon arrows ever since I started with the old AFC "SuperShafts", Bemons and some of the old Easton PC and ACC shafts. I like the penetration of a small diameter heavy shaft following a larger head ferrule. I have not seen any...

    I pulled this splintered arrow out of a field target and thought that it had shattered. Instead, the arrow had Robin Hooded a piece of arrow that had broken off in the target butt. I was able to recover my arrow undamaged. This is another benefit of shooting skinny arrows. They fit where other...

    I would appreciate some experienced comments and insights regarding recurve arrow selection for 3D unknown distances up to 40 yards. At our last local outdoor 3D, I shot on the first day with .318” arrows which have a good tune, but tend to be a little over reactive to poor releases and are 35...

    Most FF skinny flemish strings are padded in the loop area. Is that a limbs protection or to have a silent string? New string maker on the learning side. Wapous

    And I am not talking about you or 'er indoors* :eek: Arrows! Last indoor season I went with fat ally shafts, linecutters and all that, but on a 40cm face at 18meters thats one big ole shaft to line up... I reckon that more precise aiming with skinny carbons MAY gain more point than...

    I was told to get a skinny string to quiet my bow down. Who makes a good one? I heard of SBD strings but i was trying to get the string before the season starts, and they had a 2-4 week wait.

    I've noticed a trend of skinny strings lately. My gut tells me it's somewhat of a fad, but there are a lot of them being made. I have seen guys shooting 6-8 strands of fast flight. Some of them are center and tip serving with several layers to try and keep them safe for tips but the string...

    I've been bareshafting some Beman MFX shafts. Oddly enough, they consistently hit the target higher than my Lightspeeds. I would think, since the center of the skinny arrow is actually higher on the string, that it would barehsaft lower if anything. Anyone have experience with this? P.S. -...

    I have a bunch of Axis 300 shafts I would like to use for hunting with the new DAS / Border bow. I am currently tuning some Axis 340 arrows with 120g points that seem to be bareshafting fine out to 60 yds even though On Target 2 shows this setup as weak. I am going to build up a few of the 300s...

    Yeah, I know ya'll are probably sick of seeing me post, :sorry: but I need some expert advice on tabs. I have switched over to one, but am finding a hard time finding one that meets my needs. I got an Elite tab, but the aluminum plate that has all the screws in it is too thick for me to anchor...

    Hey Guys, I'm going to crumble to peer pressure and try some of Easton's skinny ST Carbon Excel arrows but I need some help with a recommended deflection. I have a 30.5" draw on a warf pulling 50# at my draw. I'm shooting off a NAP center flipper rest split finger. The selector says 340s but...
