    I have a 50 lb samick discovery, my 1st ILF bow. Started out with a vista rest plunger combo/barely left of center/most of my misses to the left ran out of adjustment/plus it was noisy. Tried tricks like weaker spine more point weight. Still left misses. Switched to a cork rest and furniture pad...

  3. 60X Custom Strings
    My 60x bowstring arrived today. What is up with the twist in the end? Will not lay flat in the limb groove. Not sure there’s a way to straighten it out. Also, which end of the bow string typically has a longer loop?

    One solution leads to another problem... lol. This indoor season I focused a lot on cleaning up and refining my shot process. I also began stringwalking. I've experienced dramatic improvements in my accuracy and consistency over the last six months. However, I've had a nagging pain in the...

    I hate to seem so petty, but I am both venting and seeking the collective advice of the great TT community. Back in early September of 2015, I called up a bowyer whom I respected and requested a custom 2-piece longbow with the options I wanted. In particular, I had requested a more built up...

Accidents and bad shots happen but for heavens sake if it happens twice don't "stick with it - it will happen" or "that's hunting". Yes I have missed and or...

    Ive noticed in my time in this country that, democractly elected President Obama has been wrong about a few things. Purposely, misinformed Americans cling to their guns, religion, and now more than ever their racism. Maybe it's because I was not raised here, and subjected to the brainwashing...

    I have a jager grip on my new riser. It is a medium with a palm pad and the pad faceted on the palm side. I have no idea what the number is but I'm thinking it is best style 2.0, based upon pics online from jager website. Whenever I let down the bow slowly, I am torquing the bow to the point...

    I shoot split finger for everything but I want to shoot 3 under for indoor. When I shoot split the arrows go right down the pike but when I go to 3 under they go left about 9" at 20 yards. Same arrows. I also went to a lighter spined arrow (my grandsons' arrows) with the same result. I'm...

    Having run out of Bohning Fletching Tape in the middle of a job (I could have sworn I had another roll) I had to find another option. When I sent out a query about the best way to attach flu flues, a couple of people suggested Goat Tuff. Since our local sports store had some (and not much else)...
