    Im looking for an affordable 25" riser mainly for non-competitive barebow. These 2 risers are affordable and look good and I dont see anything bad aout there about them. Has anyone shot or handled them? Any thoughts?

    I DUNNO. So I'm asking. About all my knowledge (skimpy at best) revolves around the low-stretch stuff. I have a vintage Browning Wasp 56" bow coming probably TODAY. Guessing it has & "needs" DACRON. SOME SAY (I've read) B55 is significantly better than the old B50 standby. What say you that have...

    My question- medium limbs? Or long limbs. I am new to archery. On a whim I picked up an OMP Smokey Mountain Hunter recurve in December. After five months now of consistent shooting and research I have decided I like this enough to go a little deeper. What I like doing is roaming around the...

    "Performance anxiety" comes in several forms and the Bale is primarily a way to just work on the shot and not the aim. The draw and hold and let down enables you to work on both but mainly control of the whole process without the gratification principle of actually loosing an arrow. To...

    I do not need one, never will, waste of ammo and no practical purpose but to make noise and waste ammo.

    Just had surgery on my leg/ankle due to a little hunting-related accident, which means I'm off my feet for about two months. I can't shoot but want to maintain a practice routine to work on form (and keep myself from going crazy). I've been looking at the Formmaster and Astra Shot Trainer...

    I am in no way an arrow expert, and I encountered something rather odd. A friend of mine made me some beautiful wood arrows that fly from my 42-45 lb. bows clean and straight. He used 5 inch more or less shield cut..(he uses a burner.) left helical. I lost and ruined a feather. I only have a...

    Hey all, I've been seeing pics of the "new" Hoyt Satori riser. It's a nice looking riser for sure. I'd like to know what you all think of it. If you own it, please post your thoughts and experiences with the riser. For those that don't own one, would you like to have one or would you just...

    Hi all - wanting to get a set of ILF Longbow limbs in low poundage... Around 35# @ 28" on a 17" riser and just wanted to get some feedback. For around $400 there are the Dryad base level Double Carbon and Maple limbs. I think Sky Archery has their Sky Hunter series in carbon / foam for the...

    Folks, please be in thought & prayer for Erich, SHort Draw lost his wife, Margaret, of 44 years last week. He wanted me to share this with you guys, since a lot of you have known him for many years and will want to know.

    A lot of hunters, and even some target guys, seem to think that really heavy arrows are the way to go and, at least as far as hunting, there seems to be data to support this. Then why are the arrow makers making such light shafts and the point makers stopping field point weights at 125 grains...

    So I was outside watching my wife shoot Cody's Gen 2 17" and I decided to take a slow mo video to highlight a couple things. When setting up a bow for optimal performance, check where the limb tips are while at full draw. When they are vertical or nearly vertical, like in this case with my wife...

    Just bought some 5 1/2 inch banana cut feathers. Just wondering what everyone's thoughts or experiences are when hunting with this type fletch. Is it louder than other fletcher types? And does it matter in hunting situations? Thanks in advance! Mike

    Not going into specific details, but keep Sam Dunham and his family in your thoughts and prayers. They lost a 5 month old grandbaby yesterday.

    This came on a Hoyt Raider riser I purchased. Wonder if it would make a good warf rest. The plunger seems kind of heavy for a trad bow..... Just my thought. Thank You!

    Hey all. I don't keep up on all the newest and latest, greatest risers and bows in the archery world. Last night I was nosing thru Lancaster and came upon the Win&Win Black Wolf Recurve and had to know more. What a great looking bow. I watched a couple videos and was interested. I...
