    What are the pros and cons of open stance or closed stance. I naturally want to stand with more of a left foot forward closed stance. I feel I get more power from my back this way. Everything I've read disagrees.

    Is there any noticeable difference in these materials? About to order a new string from LAS and I normally buy the 21 strand TT premium made from X. I bougth the Stone Mountain D97 once, but it just endlessly stretched. The X was a noticeable improvement. No stretch at all. Now I see they have...

    I can get a perfect bare shaft test shooting split finger, but can’t seem to get a good bare shaft test shooting three under. Anybody else have this issue? It shows I need to move the nock point up but to get what looks like a good up/down bare shaft, the nock point has to be ridiculously high...

    I'm just toying around with the idea of upgrading my limbs from Short 30# TT BlackMax Wood / Glass to go on my 21" ILF Dalaa, just needed some inputs: Kaya KStorms: a traditional carbon laminate limb Uukha HX10: cast limb with 50% carbon fiber Both of these limbs work out to similar prices...

    Anyway, I have been geeking out about the “physics” of bows and have been really interested in the advancements in materials and design. With that, I have been considering the concept of how different bow designs store different amounts of energy (at the same rated draw weight). There are plenty...

    I would like to hear if anyone has any experience in the following matter. What I think of is whether it is best to shoot low poundage limbs all wound in (or almost) or higher poundage all the way out (talking ILF bows) - or for that matter somewhere in between. I am not talking about extremes...

    i did a search and did not find a specific discussion on this... very generally, which are more forgiving to form inconsistencies/errors, recurves or longbows? to narrow things, let's just say when in comes to small and large motor skills i ended up in the shallow end of the gene pool... and...

    Continuing the dialog on back tension....because discussion is how we test our knowledge and ideas, I was watching folks this past week at the Gene Foster Traditional shoot and it occurred to me that there is a big difference between drawing with your back and releasing with your back. I saw...

    With my new found shot sequence and form, I am really enjoying the benefits of a longer draw and more stable approach to shooting the bow. I'm thinking of giving a longbow another honest try. 66" length would be my target. Really enjoying the reviews and looks of the Border Harrier Royale and...

    Many have probably read about the fitness and nutrition changes I made and the remarkable results I have had. I just made an interesting observation today comparing previous results from when I was on a doctor supervised, low calorie, extremely low carb, NO EXERCISE diet, and my current diet...

    which would be better for 3-under barebow shooting?! which would balance better out of the box? I can get both new for about the same price each!

    Just borrowed a set of Uukha 100 medium limbs 40#. I put them on my Greenhorn riser and set them at lowest rec. braceheight app. 8,5". Had to increase the poundage two turns on the bolts (higher preload than my "normal" setting) to get same poundage as when I shot my Innos at 42#28" Ran them...

    On Top Shot, they had the contestants shoot 2 finger split. This morning I shot my 68# Great Northern 2 fingers under. I used pointer and tall man fingers. Took a little getting used to but I was accurate with 2 fingers. With a lighter bow, I think I could be real accurate, as my 2 fingers...

    Guys, Im pulling my hair out on this one. Since Im in a situation where paper tells me one thing, bare shafts at 20yds tells me something else, what one do you believe in? Im shooting bare shafts thru paper as well. Here is what Im seeing. Paper at 6ft. 500spine weak 400spine weak 340 nice...

    Can anybody tell me if there is a difference in these two Easton aluminium arrows except colour (blue and black)?

    I read somewhere a while ago that a way to find out how to set your tiller was to look at the nocking point the instant after the shot is fired - said in other words how much up and down movement there is at brace before being still. I shoot a Greenhorn Sirius riser with Win and Win EX limbs...

    The Bitzenberger jig is $79.99 each and $29.99 for a clamp. The JoJan Multifletcher is $99.99 for six jigs and $15.99 for a clamp. I have heard that both are good but the Bitz is the best. What do you get with the Bitzenberg that makes it worth spending the extra money, especially if you want...

    I finally got my longbow, a Samick SLB. I am really happy with it so far. Now I need to get some wood arrows. I was wondering what the performance difference is between 3 and 4 feather fletches. I would like to be able to shoot indoors and American 900 rounds. Any thoughts?...on fletching or...
