Graysquirrel sent me a dozen woodies I made it as hard as I could for him, I made an error typing my address. All turned out will. Thanks Graysquirrel.

I am going to shoot them off some hotter limbs but I wanted to see how they shot off my "Old Darling". This is my first group at 17 yards. Not so hot but I was finding my cant and working in my three under, middle finger anchor. Even so you can tell the arrows are a bit stiff. This is good since I am going to shoot them off a super curve limb.

I loosened the hex nut that lock the limb bolts down. Turned the limb bolts in I&1/2 turns. Ok got my cant, got my anchor locked in. I poured it on.

I repeated the process. Screwed the limb bolts 2/3 turn out.



Hmmm I may shoot this tune awhile

I'm just tickled to death we figured out where they went.

How do you like that burn on the feathers? I hope you do cause the others are burned the same

Really nice arrows. I usually just have three dips of gasket lacquer, store bought cut feathers, with liner tape for and aft. These are a treat for me.

Even better they group well :)

Thanks

To me, it seems wooden arrows react very predictably to draw weight tuning. Well this is especially in lighter weight spined arrows. You can dial them in. They react much more than carbon arrows do to draw weight tuning.

Yup, tuning the bow to the arrows is a superior attribute of ILF - you didn't have to settle for the first group!

Timely post Rusty.

I've been thinking about hunting with woodies when I get out in August coming up.

You've now convinced me, there's just something about wooden arrows in the Woods.

BTW,Nice dialling it in,it shows what these set ups are capable of.

Rusty, you any good at tuning wood arrows to a one piece longbow? I'm horrible. ILF is much easier to tune for sure.

I got a lot better when i got top hat kit and a small fine cut japanese saw. top hat points screw onto wooden shaft. i just cut them 1/2 " at a time, screw the point back on, repeat till the arrows end up in a wad where i want then :)
