    Hiya guys, I've been working on Pip Bickerstaffe's book on how to shoot the English longbow.

When you go, you...

    The first thing I'd like you to know is I got a few comments from others telling me how the forums have become a little boring since I quit posting as much because....well?...I don't have any new bows coming and there just isn't as much to post about as there used to be. The 2nd thing I'd like...

    Well folks?...I worked with the Black Thunderstorm rig last night so tonight?...it was the Kraken's turn...where the 68"/36#@28", 5+LB Heavy risered Black Thunderstorm gives my bow arm a workout?...the 68"/46#@28" Kraken exercises the rest...but as you'll see shortly here?...I shoot them both in...

    In case you folks missed it in my "How To Adjust Horizon Limb Bolts" thread?...(which I suspect many did)....my used Horizon riser came with an extra 1/4-20 threaded hole in an ideal location to add some weight and after a bit of thought regarding both "Adding Weight" and "Vibe Damping"?....I...

    Surprises too the high side... I recently divested myself of all my bows but one...yet still had my Robertfishes Custom made for me Amberboo Core/Black Glass ILF limbs kicking around with no ILF riser to be mounted on and felt bad about that...so I grabbed a used 25" Hoyt Horizon ILF riser...

    Greetings Gentlefolk...I come before you this fine morning to share with you what I have concluded is quite literally... "THE TRIAL BY FIRE" as it relates too... "WHICH BOWS ARE SHOOTERS FOR ME" (and which aren't) As a 57 year old life-long archer who once enjoyed a fair amount of success...

    I feel honored and privileged to be one of the first recipients of the new Gillo Ghost Bow and since this vid got rapidly buried in the other thread (that got spun way off topic) I figured I give it it's own because I am very impressed with this bows balance and shot behavior. Leashed...with an...
