    I shoot a 42lb (at my draw length of 31") Turkish bow - with a thumb ring, not fingers. I make my own arrows and I'm about to get some decent bamboo shafts. The informed sources about Asiatic archery and bamboo arrows say that (because of bamboo's different resonant frequency/ different nodal...

    I have been shooting with a thumb ring lately and am shooting both horse bows, with the arrow on the right side of the riser, and conventional recurves with the arrow on the left side. I find them both to be accurate and both have some advantages. My scores with the conventional recurve are...

    I’m experimenting with this technique and was curious as to where other shooters anchor. I came from shooting 3 under with a finger to tooth and my nose on a feather. I see a great benefit to this technique immediately as I went from 27” to 29.5” draw which speaks for itself. Any input is...

    Started shooting a bow November of last year, finding it to be incredibly enjoyable. The bow was a little Samick Discovery R1, and now after shooting friend’s bear grizzly, Spigarelli 650 club, and the WF19 I just picked up (thanks to Warden415) I can say it’s a damn fine little bow...

    Anyone know if it’s within IBO rules or not for the traditional classes? Would it be considered a release aid? Not a ring, using a thumb release with a glove and leather tab on the thumb.

    Hey all, So on the advice of some I've changed my grip (it was very much pushing with the palm, med to low wrist) and am using mostly the webbing of the bow hand for holding/pushing the bow. here's the problem, after about 30 shots, my thumb joint is hurting, noticably. I've noticed that it...
