    So.... I ordered some b55 to learn how to build Flemish twist strings. The first one that I built, was built while watching pausing and rewinding YouTube videos. It didn't end well. I'm not sure if I nicked it somehow but it snapped at the top loop. I built a smaller one for a 15lb kids bow...

    Its been sitting in my closet for almost a year. I wanted that bow so bad because I love the look but the prospect of shooting it is something else. A gorgeous all wood "flat bow" made from lemon wood purple heart and something else [ I forget ]. I fooled around with it a while ago, not what id...

    Okay all you lefties out there. Tell us what is good about being left handed, and mostly what is a pain in the butt.

    Once it gets to early evening on the west coast things really slow down on the forum. At some point we get the overseas folks commenting, but we usually do not see their posts until the morning. So this is the check in. Let us know if you are out there. Add a post when you see this thread. Make...

    I want to change the direction (without diverting the discussion in that thread) of the 1 year bow wait thread and discuss what reasonable time frames would be considered acceptable for different types of bows, and different levels of customization and uniqueness.

    I know there is such a thing, cause I’ve heard plenty of them, even asked a few. But here goes this one: My friend who is going to mil my pockets is moving a equipment in storage for a couple more weeks. So I was wondering why I couldn’t just drill a hole for the ILF bushing instead of have a...

The hike was a great success. The stats were 23 miles, 8,300 feet of elevation gain in 15 hours and...

    Now that Vegas and most of indoor is done for the year, it's time for a change. I'm gonna keep my Gillo G2 riser, but everything else is gonna change. I bought a new Jager "Ball Grip" at their booth in vegas. I like it a lot. On limbs, I've been shooting Galaxy Gold Star carbon/foam limbs at...

    OK .. so today I had bilateral hearing aids fitted. Can't say I'm happy about the fact that parts of me are no longer working as they once did. Oh well, old father time creeps up on us all I suppose.
