    I was watching some WA barebow videos and saw where a couple of junior competitors were stringwalking but with a low or jawbone anchor point like Olympic archers. Both of the juniors were in the finals so they must of been having some success shooting that way. Has anyone tried using that...

    Hi, I would like to share the publication of my fifth book: StringWalking, el arte del ARCO RASO, (Spanish edition). I thank you very much for helping me in understanding the complex art of StringWalking. I discover it here some years ago and I learned a lot from all your postings. Thank you...

    I did a search but did not really find a definitive answer. * I would prefer to ignore the 'fixed crawl' option for the sake of better understanding where true stringwalking can be made to work with hunting style equipment (shorter ILF risers (21" and less) and simple rests (often risers...

    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 started the process of tuning my stringwalking bow today. I had done some bareshaft tuning but today I started the Tuning for Tens method. Previous bareshaft testing had shown that 600's were working better than 500's. I had never shot a shaft that weak before and only had the 600 for testing...

    The indoor season is upon us, and my first as a stringwalker. I'm hoping to get some advice on how to select an aluminium arrow that will come close to getting the point on the target face. Currently, I'm shooting a Border Tempest 25in with XL CV-H limbs, giving 37.5lbs at 31 3/4in draw. I'm...

    I'm fairly new to barebow. So far I have been stringwalking using marks or stitching on my tabs to measure my crawls. I would like to also be able to measure crawls by counting serving loops. However, on the strings that I have used to date, the serving loops are so small that It doesn't work...

    Just wanted to see what arrow weight folks here are using for stringwalking and what draw weight. I know many will go into the light arrow camp but I wonder if anyone stringwalks with relatively heavy arrows. I'm playing with an ILF setup and dabbling with stringwalking again. The arrow that...

    My Dad, my 15 yr old daughter and I are trying out string walking together today. This picture means a lot to me. I finally am figuring this stringwalking stuff out, sort of. 20 yard target:

    Hi, I could use the advice of experienced stringwalkers here: I normally shoot a Best Zenit 25" riser with long limbs. I have a 30" draw length AMO. If I mount my uukha vx1000 Xcurve on the riser and look at the limb tips at full draw, they are still pointing forward a little bit which is due...

    I have begun setting up my stringwalking bow for the year. I decided to take another run at using the Tuning for Tens method that comes from World Archery. The link is to a copy of the method. This is a little less polished version that the one I have saved on my laptop. I figured I would start...

    Howdy, Im hoping to hear from stringwalkers about what I might be doing wrong that keeps me from getting my point on distance out past 35yrds with 3 under. I'm shooting an oly riser with medium #40 limbs and drawing 28". My main arrows are easton acc with shafts cut to 28". So at full draw the...

    Ok I think you guys have got me headed in the right direction as far as rest and vanes. The decision I make on which of the many options you guys give me will be on my back so again thanks. Now which tab for string walking and if you suggest one please help this old fart out by telling me why...

    I'm in the process of putting together my first purely target rig which will be a 25" Bernardinin20st riser with med 38# Uukha limbs. Looking at Vap-V3s but not sure if I should go with the 500s or 600s. I think I want to keep the total weight around 7.5 to 8 gpi. Give or take a little...

    Had a hard practice time last night, really whacking my Nose on the long shots, in the end I started to get Nose panic lol Did some work this morning and figured a bad habit in my sequence which fixed the problem, something easy to forget when so focused. when I'm counting my crawls I'm...

    I've shot target barebow for a couple of years now and have always "lucked" into good tune. I shot from under the chin for all distances from 90m down to 18m indoors, thats a long way down the string. I've always had almost no side to side variation in calm conditions. For my new set up i'm...
