    Hi, Wish I had a chronograph, but will try using a high quality microphone near the bow and then record the sound on my computer. I'll try to find the brace height with the lowest noise levels. I'll compare this to my subjective evaluation. I might be able to get a rough idea of speed by...

    I would like to test some of my setups for noise and am looking for a sound meter. Does anyone have any suggestions on make and model? I looked at a number of them online and it appears some may not be sensitive enough on the "low end" to measure a bow but I am not sure. My hearing isnt what it...

    How many of you tune your ILF bows by sound? I shoot 3under,start out with even tiller with my nockpoint at 9/16 above square.Without using silencers I can notice the difference in sound by tightening the limb bolts a half turn at a time,one limb at a time. I may be wrong but if the limbs are...

    I'm starting to get frustrated with my bow, it's a 56" bear grizzly (45# at 28"), i'm not sure which era it's from. Does anybody know? I think they only made the grizzly in 56" for a few years. Anyways, It's a beautiful bow but every now and then when I shoot, I can here my arrow slapping the...

    When it is time to vote, apparently the voter is not to be asked for any guarantee of his wisdom. His will and capacity to choose wisely are taken for granted. Can the people be mistaken?
