    Long time since I posted. Getting back into archery after several years recovering from an accident. Been shooting a 45# Samick Sage, which I really like. Sort of hate to admit it since I have a DAS Elite, DAS Gen II and a DAS Tribute I can play with, as well as several DAS conversions done by...

    I am looking for a stick on arrow rest to be used while stringwalking. I am using a Galaxy Torch riser and the thickness of the sight window wall is such that a wraparound bolt on rest and my Shibuya plunger are not working. So buying a new plunger is out of the question, I decided to just use...

    I'm primarily a longbow shooter. Most ILF risers just feel too fat & bulky for me. It's been a couple of years since Jonhdo warfed my Black Swan Longbow riser...still love it. Just to show that there are alternatives out there. Thanks again Loc...tippit Black Swan bolt on longbow riser...

    Hello everyone, I want to buy some new limbs. But I'm all over the place on choices so I'd really like some guidance! My experience so far is with cheaper wood/glass limbs, but I've a few pairs of the (Gen I) Tradtech BM Carbon/wood limbs as well. Been shooting these for years on end. Not a lot...

    Greetings everyone, I am still fussing around with my new to me Excel riser. I wonder if any of you shoot this riser with just a stick on rest and plunger? If so what have been your thoughts? Thank you, Tom M

    I use Bear Weather rests on my recurves and I like they way they perform, though I have no comparison. My problem is, the strike plate side of the rests wear out really fast. For example, I just purchased a mint '72 Bear Kodiak Magnum yesterday. I put a weather rest on, went out and shot twelve...

    I got hold of one of these from a local compound bloke. I am shooting off the shelf now but the rest that I had seemed more forgiving. I see it is called a hunting rest. It looks like it could be pretty brutal on the feathers. Should I trim that vertical piece off? Thanks as always.

    Does anyone have knowledge as to what is going on with "Stick & String" Traditional magazine/or computer site. Are they Kaput? or what?

    I did not see a place on the forum where one introduces themselves? The last time I shot a bow was over thirty years ago and I am about as green as one could get when it comes to traditional bow hunting. Been shooting and hunting everything else though :) My bow should be arriving next week...

    I have always shot arrows in the 500 spine and always felt they were a little stiff even with a lot of weight up front. So I picked up a dozen of the new Axis Trads in a 600 spine. So this is how I tune new arrows I always cut the fletching off of one to use as a bare shaft. I like the quill to...
