    Fast Flight flemish on my Dalaa. I used to unstring my bow every day but now I leave it strung. I was hoping that the string would stretch all the way and stop stretching eventually. But it's been over two months and it's still stretching. So I have to add one twist every week or so. Is this...

    I have been slowly overcoming a bad case of TP. When I initially got my draw length back to my face I increased my arrow lengh about two to three inches. As I did more research and learned the problems of using your face as an anchor point I noticed another inch or so added onto my...
