    Over the years Annette and have noticed that beyond T-shirts there really isn't much out there in the way of fashion that is Archery oriented. Jewelry, or little accessories and whatnot. Well, with the addition of a little laser engraver to our shop we've decided to do our part to correct this...

    I have some hard rock maple shafts coming in for my 68"/53#@28" Jet Safari Premier Hill style ASL and was feeling a little anxious regarding what sort of point weight might be needed as in recent talks with Kevin Forrester I spec'ed them at 65# spine and they'll be tapered for 30"s long when...

    Rusty is in the process of going through his inventory of bows and I offered to help him sell some of it. He dropped off a nice warf riser today and says he has a "few". What's a warf going for these days? Thanks, Mike

    This is a recipe we got from a Mozambican restaurant on the beach. I always have some in the fridge and it does taste better the longer you leave it in the fridge. I eat it with anything you would add chilli too. My favorite when I am spending the day out is seed loaf, butter, chilli, peanut...

    I'm 60 years old next month. I've been a hunter since I was 7 years old. Rifles, shotguns, longbows, recurvebows, compound bows, rods, spears, traps an anything I left out. They all were and still all are just gateways to the hunt. Just keys to that particular door. The tools of the trade sort...

    So I'm thinking about getting an ILF set-up. I currently have a Striker T/D recurve and, don't get me wrong, she's a sweet shooting little bow, but I'm a tinkerer. I have a feeling that the adjustability of an ILF rig will both please the tuner in me and also step up my accuracy. Getting to the...

    I admit, I like Youtube. Yeah, there's a goodly amount of garbage on it, but you can learn to fix things, or to cook new dishes, or enjoy music from all over the spectrum. And once in a while there's something special. This topic is for stuff that just makes you feel good ;-) I don't watch...

    I'm eagerly awaiting my first longbow, Timber Creek Cottonmouth (from a fellow member) and was checking out their other offerings. A 17" wooden ILF riser is coming very soon - the Copperhead, made of Bubinga and Actionwood. Then they post a pic from their factory tour in Europe: Bottom 2...

The second bow is a 66" "Art/Tattoo" bow made out of Hard Rock Maple with two hand drawn Roses on both sides of the riser. More to...

    Well folks?...I know this is probably getting too the "My Daily Installment" levels of posting and while I apologize for that?...please take consolation ion the fact that these forums are not the only victim of my apparent disease of OCD archery as another symptom seems to be a rather large...

    Guys I sprayed a set of limbs with plasti-dip and it turned them flat black and gave them a protective rubbery finish. I removed it effortlessly by peeling it with my fingers. The limbs look spanking new! Just picked this riser up from Mike here on TT. Had a few scratches and the gloss finish...

    Having run out of Bohning Fletching Tape in the middle of a job (I could have sworn I had another roll) I had to find another option. When I sent out a query about the best way to attach flu flues, a couple of people suggested Goat Tuff. Since our local sports store had some (and not much else)...

    What am I seeing with all this black magic on an archery forum. Seems :offtopic: to me! Anyone else think it doesn't fit? I didn't join to have to wade through black magic!
