    I saw something on an Archery related FB group that reminded me of something that I had written a few years ago. So I pulled it up and posted it to our "Archery Info" blog back at the store. https://www.fenderarchery.com/blogs/archery-info/step-up It is different from the technical stuff I...

    I have a question that may not have a right or simple answer to? I am new to ILF bows but not traditional and am trying to set up a new WF19 riser with Tradtech/dryad longbow limbs. I am getting frustrated as I have been switching stuff around trying to get good arrow flight. I have a some...

    Good first step. Scientist were concerned that the Climate Change Report would be buried, but it was approved for release by the White House. https://www.yahoo.com/news/white-house-oks-report-warning-climate-change-caused-194323870.html Just have to keep moving forward.

    Again we are finding out that the Ukraine and DNC thru an America named Chalupa were in bed with Dems during election. I see Debbie Wasseman Shultz being subpeoned in front of congress soon. Podesta maybe in trouble as well. Pot this kettle, Over. To be clear, this is not a crime either under...

    Step #1: Quit Talking about it and...."Do Something About It"...what to do about it?...for starters?...easy... Stop Reading about it. Stop Talking about it. Stop Researching it. and above all?... Stop Obsessing Over It! You know those mornings where you woke up for work and just didn't...

    I started with tuning for 10's and set up my bow to shoot fairly well straight three under. I have a fairly high 13/16 inch nock point and 0 tiller. I was able to barshaft out to 50 meters, with my bareshafts on line but a bit low. I did not do any correction to the nock point since I knew the...

    I have been shooting lighter bows and ripping the spin wings off my shafts. I figured my VAP 500 were stiff so I picked up some 600, put together a paper tuning setup and went about trying Tuning for 10's for the first time....and I went sideways on the very first step. First my setup: 70 inch...

    I'm shooting a 30# Samick Journey. I'm working on technique and consistency. I just started shooting at a local 3d club late this summer. I shot with the traditional guys and saw recurves, and longbows running from 40-60+ lbs draw weights. I would like to move up to a higher draw weight-for...

    And it too bad too. The alloy risers designed for off the shelf. No holes drilled except for bolt down limbs. If you match your riser/limbs with some carefully crafted wooden arrows you have a delightful bow to shoot. great in hand weight. Tough as mails. I got this riserb unfinished and...

    The great Olympic archery coach Kisik Lee of Korea, Australia and now since 2006 head of the US program developed a 12 step shot sequence. I have added a 13th, and some of my first 12 are a bit different from his because I shoot barebow. My step 13 is Relax and Review. The Relax part is both...

    Well, I am flat out too tired to shoot my bows more than a few arrows. The problem is a low carb diet that is, hopefully, one of the last steps necessary to get back to shooting at my best. Once I hit the low carbs, my muscles lost all stamina. I saw my coach on Friday and could not get through...

    Maybe what's my next step in general to get some consistency in my 18m target shooting? I'm just moving from the "got a bow and some arrows that work, and I can hit the bag with them pretty regularly" stage, and am looking to focus a little on improving my target shooting. Not going bow...

    So I just picked up (this morning) a 35# Samick Sage TD Recurve NIB, and should be picking up a stringer soon as well (possibly tonight?). This will allow me to get the bow strung and start with some conditioning and form training. That being said, the reason I am so excited is because although...

    So this is my 20 yard group this morning. Have been having a hard time getting groups, arrows have been scattered. Very frustrated, tried different stance, different tips, cut arrows etc....everything I have read on here. Ended up with this. Problem is, my gap point/aim point is the bottom left...

    Yesterday i shot my first real arrow. It sailed from my leather grasp and only a string separated me from the arrow, no fiber optic sight, no machined cam wheel, no metal of any kind. It was my second baptism of primitiveness, and I give thanks to the creator for bringing me to hardened sturdy...

    I finally finished my riser. Soon as my string gets here, I get to shot her.

    Last night was a step in the wrong direction. From last week's 268 I dropped to 265 last night. The importance of the mental aspect of archery cannot be overstated as my head was not totally in the game last night and my shooting suffered because of it. Not to make excuses, but a stressful...
  18. Warfin' Wall
    I have removed the limbs with the wheels. I found the limb bolts are too thin for fitting the ILF limbs on them. I am thinking on lathing a stainless steel part that I pull onto the limb bolt and gives a tighter fit. I also will need something to fit the dovetail part into. I was thinking...

    I am currently using Samick universal wood/glass limbs but I am thinking of asking for another set for christmas. I was looking at the Winstorm carbon limbs. They would be medium length, 31" draw on a 25" riser and possibly a Warf. Anybody used both this limbs? Would the winstorms be...
