I have a dozen uncut .231 adjustable static inserts from Ethics Archery for sale (no trades). These weigh 175 grains full length and they can be cut down to 50 grains. The lip opens outward and takes 5/16" field points. Two were glued in with low temp hot melt and shot a few times while the...
In the past I had many Dryad limbs. They were all fast, smooth and quiet. I see that 3 Rivers now sells the Epic limbs new. I had ACS RC and Epics with bamboo and others with maple cores. They all performed great.
Has anyone bought and shot these new Epics from 3 Rivers? I would like your...
Do static tip recurves have a shorter string length between the limb tips at full draw because the limbs don't uncurl? Would this make them perform like a shorter bow for shooting crawls?
Anyone have experience with this, good or bad?
Spine that is, not release.
A couple of times I've tried to explain static spine and dynamic spine an haven't done the best job of it.
A few weeks ago I stumbled on a good way to explain it.
So here goes, I currently shoot Bear Paw pentathlon shafts from both my everyday shooters, 50LB and 60LB...
Hi, Has anybody had much experience with this bow ?
I understand it is a remake of the original Bear from 1952. There is one review on you tube , but not much else.
It looks to me like a Hybrid, Long bow- recurve and Mongolian. I am thinking of getting one but there is no option for me to see...
I'm currently shooting tapered spruce shafts from Hildebrandt.
45LB static spine, 100g field points, three 4" feathers, plastic nocks.
When shot into a blue sky they show no wiggles waves or porposing .
Plus their very accurate.
From my 60lb Bear Grizzly.
So what's the point of static spine...
During Dryad's Black Friday sale, I ended up getting an Orion 15" riser with medium ACS-RC limbs for a 58" recurve rated 44#@28". Being my first static recurve, I did a review of it on my blog and did a little comparison of it with a conventional recurve and a super recurve...
Just a curious thought and maybe this is a stupid question. We all know that long bows are more forgiving
than a lot of recurves due to torquing/limb rigidity etc. so what about statics because the limbs are more rigid?
Why or why not ?
My new limbs are very accurate but unforgiving of mistakes.
So after struggling to keep 6 arrows in 6 inches at 25 yards I tried a static release a few times an straight away shot a couple of tight repeatable groups.
I then practiced for 40-50 arrows and continued to group...
Dryad Epic recurves have the static tips.
I know they allow the finished bow length to be shorter end to end measured as compared against another similar length bow with conventional tips.
I know they are quieter than some of the conventional limbs.
I know it's been said by some that they can...
If we define torsional stability of the limbs as how far the tips will deflect out from vertical when a release is offset (as all finger releases are), wouldn’t a static tip limb be more stable? The tips (actually the recurve section) are built up so they don’t bend. I understand that other...
I'm confused about the difference between a dynamic and static release. I understand about maintaining back tension or even a sense of constant pulling but when I watch slow-mo videos, like this one and others similar, there doesn't seem to be any rearward movement until long after the arrow...
thare1774 on ArcheryTalk provide me his new neo traditional bow for some force and energy testing.
Here is the original thread where thare1774 introduces his new hunter rig.
The limbs are medium Dryad Epic static recurve limbs marked 50...
I keep getting asked if we make a static or a working recurve.
Since the world is not black and white. that is not a simple question.
but the concept is that working recurves open out when pulled back.
while static recurves dont.
What about those that only half open?
and even better.
