    I have the itch for a Hill style longbow. I’ve owned them before so I know they are slow and some have hand shock. I’m looking at a HH tembo. I can’t decide what grip to go with between the trad straight grip, dished or locator. Locator might fit me better since I shoot low wrist recurves.

    Nock Point, Tiller, and draw style... (ideas from the recent "string walking" thread) In the recent thread on string walking I asked a question about string walking pulling closer to the center of the string. I decided to start a new thread since it was veering off topic a bit. The comments...

    It seems there are a few bowyers making 21st Century style longbows, never got the chance to shoot or own an original so I was curious to know what they are like to shoot compared to other reflex/deflex longbows and who is making these types of bows besides the Javaman Impala?

    Fellow archers, Finally at a stage with my shooting where I believe a more customized grip can make me even more consistent! Looking to test a high grip on my Tempest and am considering the Jäger Best or 3.0 styles. The “Best” looks appealing but there are warnings that it requires a different...

Now?...while they proved just a touch too stiff to hit tune...

    I would think the ILF system was overwhelmingly geared to first Olympic style recurves, and more recently shorter risered recurves. If shooting a 21 to 25 inch riser are there any quirks or drawbacks or pluses to using long bow limbs on them?
