    I was looking at ordering a Samick sage bow online and I noticed it said youth bow in the description, although it also said it was a 62 inch bow. I didn’t know that there was a Samick sage youth bow, is there? I think they might’ve got the description wrong. I did text the seller and I’m...

    So my oldest son, almost 9 years old, has expressed an interest in trying an Olympic style recurve. I have zero experience in this portion of archery. He has excellent form for his age and averages in the mid-240s on the NFAA blue face at 10 yds with his 67" Damon Howatt Ventura. There's not...

    Thinking of building a cousins daughter a riser and adding Ilf dovetails. I am thinking 13 inches and a short set of axiom limbs. 16 degree limb pockets sound about right? I figure she drawing right about 20-21 judging by my daughter who is a similar size. I’d like the bow to be about 20 at her...

    So my daughter is going to shoot some 3D with me this year! Reading the rules and have a question. In the IBO rules it says "any rest may be used in YTRD". The Eagle traditional only rules say "Arrows will be shot off the hand or shelf of the riser only". If I'm reading this correctly, I...

I have a 19" morrison gen 2 riser I was thinking about putting some light weight short limbs on, but not sure it will be low enough weight for her to pull. I also thought about one of...

    I saw this posted on a social media site. No pic is downloaded to protect the boy's identity. I'm curious as to what you folks would think, and whether you would reply or not. It turned my stomach, but I said nothing. One person posted derogatory remarks, and was slammed for it. So what do you...

    My 6 yr old is asking for a bow for his birthday. Just wondering what your experience has been with beginner sets, good and bad. This bow will most likely be passed down to his brother 2 yrs younger. Thanks!

    I have come to the point where it is time to get my two boys decent bows. Although they are young at 6.5 and 4.5 they have been shooting since they were 3. I have been looking at different options and it would be great to find something in ILF that would provide long term flexibility. Seems all...

    Looking over on the auction place and noticed a Bear Brave youth compound. Wondering if any of you have tired to Warf one, or if you think it would make a good project? It looks to be much shorter than the Proline or Black Bear so I wonder if it's up to the load.
