    Hello All Put a piece of white tape at bottom of top limb.Add a center limb mark. Draw bow string and alien bow string with line on the tape mark. This will work for a natural cant of the bow. To repeat ones holding cant. Just start out with a center mark. And add your canting mark.[Later

    EDIT for clarity More deflex plus a steeper pad angle resulting in a limb braced with normal tension but oriented more vertically is what i am referring to. They do seem to be going this way with risers such as the Satori. But why not just take it close the physical limits right now...

    Just an observation, as I shoot an older recurve with a feather rest, that canting the bow is working much better for me than holding the bow vertically. I spent a good six weeks straight trying to only shoot a vertical bow, which was working out pretty well, overall. Two weeks ago I switched...

    Apparently I do not. I know I used to but man I've developed a lean. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

    Hi, Had to take a break from shooting due to an injury. I'm back now, but have lost a bit of upper body strength as a result from being limited in activity. The main issue is now my bow arm is rotating a bit under the force of the draw so that the meat of my forearm is getting closer to the...

    How many of you longbow shooters cant the bow? Am new to longbow and tried this today. Felt like it was easier to shoot with both eyes open and for some reason to get the bow to full draw and pull through at the release. Good results.

    I was hunting from about 20' up and had a small buck run by. Shortly fallowed by a coyote. It came straight to me and was standing still about 10-15 feet from my tree. I was shooting a 20yd crawl and gapping to compensate. I can not figure out how I missed him. You always hear about people...

    I was talking to Tradtalker Max this past weekend about bow testing and was describing vertical stability when I had an epiphany. Max was using one of those metal garden rakes with flexible tines. So I took the rake and set it on end so that the tines were on the ground and positioned in such as...

    Other the course of the last few months I've been playing around with different length and gauge wires for my rests along with trying the Springy rest. I've noticed that vertical compliance of the rest is a fairly substantial component of arriving at a forgiving stringwalking tune. It also has...

    I've been working on switching to 3 under and gapping. With the bow vertical am I correct in thinking the string has to be in front of your eye in order to be over the arrow? I know some of the better 3d shooters cant a little. Is this why? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Seems the idea is to have bare shafts and fletched impact at same vertical point or have bare shafts impact just slightly lower in an effort to ensure good clearance from arrow rest. Please weigh in on whether, in an effort to get more point on distance out to sixty yards, you can go the other...

    i've been reading about the desirability of a vertical bow, so decided to try it this morning. i normally cant about 1 o'clock, or a bit more. my cant seems consistent to me, but i suppose vertical would likely be more so. YOW! my first three arrows flew 2' left @20 yards. then i figured it...

    Do you think these are different animals. Do you think that these can be tuned out/solved differently?

    I got a new set of arrows CX Medallion XR (29" 900spine) which I am shooting out of a 32# limbs on a 21" excel riser (I have a 26" DL). I am having a hell of time trying to tune the nock height. I initially set the nock height to +3/8" and arrows were nose diving, went down to +1/4 in also nose...

    I watch lots of video's on You Tube. I notice some archers use and recommend holding the bow in a relaxed position which will be canted a little. This is only practiced by some of the traditional instinctive shooters. Typically they lean forward from the hips at the same angle as the bow Then I...

    Vertical stability is a curtial aspect to Nocking point stability, and limb flap. There are people out there that think Vertical stability is pointless, as good limb timing and good grip placement cures most ill's in terms of vertical stability which is correct... but... my questions to these...

    I've been told that when bare shaft tuning, the bow needs to be held vertical even if you will shoot the bow canted after tuning. Is this true? What's the truth here? I did a search and came up with nothing.

    Do you mount your heads verical or hoizontal? I have to have mine horizontal. I use the point as an "aiming device" and if the blade is in the vertical position, it messes with my sight picture. What say you?? Del

    Why does it seem so hard to shoot a longbow held vertical?Am I alone on this?I'm shooting a hill bow and I'm fine with a slight cant but if I turn it vertical its like a whole new sight picture I've never seen before.I'm trying to make my shooting more versitile for hunting.I shoot from all...

    How many of you cant the bow when shooting from a treestand? I can't see much of a way I could shoot from a stand without canting the bow except at certain angles, so that's the way I shoot all the time. Just curious
