    Let me start by saying that I am new to traditional archery. I am a very analytical/procedural person. Through my research online, I have discovered many different processes for tuning a recurve and its proposed arrows. My scenario is that I have a new bow, 1 piece recurve without adjustable...

    This might be a challenge, but I could use some serious help. I am working on an ILF setup, but the tuning process is killing me. I shoot my Black Widow very well and have been successful with it in the field and at tournaments. Using my nock height, draw weight, and other specs from my Widow...

    Alright so I’m new to a springy rest. I’m shooting it pretty well. I shot 2 300 rounds with it the other day. One with much too stiff arrows. And one with a bare shaft that doesn’t seem to hit anywhere outside of the 8 ring on gold face 40cm. I shot a 250 with the much too stiff arrows. And a...

    How’s it going TTNation. New member here looking for some input/confirmation. I have been tuning my bow and arrows and have everything pretty well dialed. I ended up on 5/8 nock high on my nocking point and getting AWESOME flight with no up and down movement in my arrows. But… upon settling at...

    I'll keep it short, as your thoughts are most important. I have a new longbow and I'm trying to get my arrow flight so it looks good. The bow is a 60" Great Plains longbow with a low wrist grip, 40# draw weight at my draw length, and simple calf hair rest. My arrows are PORPOISING like crazy...

    I have been shooting this same setup with no changes for months. When I got my new rest I re-tuned and my bare shaft groups were hitting with my fletched groups consistently. I am still scoring well, but I seem to have plateaued in the mid 260's. I also have noticed that I'm moving my string...

    So I thought my aluminum shafts were going to be my hunting arrows for the year and Ive noticed most have a bend about 6" up from the field point so I'm back at square one trying alternatives. I have some Easton Axis 5mm done up and after a little fiddling I have bareshafts as well as I can...

    I recently bought a pair of Hex 7.2 medium limbs rated at 52# on a 25” riser. They are on a titan iii 19” riser with limb bolts all the way in. I am pulling approx 27” and here is my group of 1 fletched arrow with 2 bare shafts @ 15 yrds. This is about as good as I can tune... but those are 200...

    Is there any benefit to tuning your arrow by thickening or thinning the strike plate vs cutting and point weight? I read about Rick Welsch talking about making your bow shoot where you point but says he doesn't bare shaft tune?

    Paper is showing me that my back is coming in high, which is weird because I generally keep my knocking point lower than most. Lowered the knocking point to 0, still showing knocking point high [??]. I cant lower anymore without going below zero. Anyone have any idea what is going on here?

    Hey! New to this ILF stuff and I really didnt know what I was getting into when I bought this Samick Discovery, what with all this tech stuff and tuning but anyway here I am and I have a question. It was shooting better than I could but 3 R suggested a Vista rest/plunger combo that was really...

    I wanted to ask about a method I use but may not be correct? When i begin tuning a new arrow setup , I take a single bareshaft and shoot it and look at flight and or impact and tears in cardboard target. I have a set of various length bareshaft to try and compare flight. If i know an arrow...

    Hey everyone, new on here and new to traditional archery. I'm looking for some guidance here as I'm stumped trying to get my bow to tune with a new string. My resources are limited where I am, so I'm hoping some of you with more experience can help me problem solve. Thanks. My current set-up...

    Welp, i'm succumbing to asking the internet for answers. Each year I usually build a self-bow, but this year I haven't had the time and am opting to go back to my 50lb samick sage for the forgiveness and shootability for hunting. I put a new string on it and reset the 2 nock points. Took my...

    Is there a rule of thumb regarding how much length cut off an arrow equals “x” amount of point weight reduction. Something like reducing arrow length by .25” is the same as reducing point weight by 25 grain? Totally just throwing that out as an example.

    So my problem is I am shooting a 100 grain brass glue on insert with a 155 single bevel glue on grizzly broadhead. I ordered 160 grain glue on field points to tune my arrows with because thats the closest thing I could match to the broadhead. Well after I got my bareshaft flying straight I got...

    Hopefully someone with more insight into Uukha will be able to offer some assistance. Having had an interest in Uukha limbs for a while, I recently picked up a pair of Ex1's that I happened upon. Long limbs, 34#, just about perfect for my use. I had my short hunting bow (17" Dalaa, long Soul...
