    Has anyone tested or bought the WiaWis MXT limbs?

    I've just found someone on ArcheryTalk who's bought and reviewed a set of MXTs A Review of the WiaWis MXT-G limbs vs the WiaWis NS limbs I nearly stopped reading when he starts talking about brace heights of 29 and 36 cm! o_O But at the end of the thread he updates to say he'd missed a leading...

    Archery netting versus back stop matting?

    This mat isn't just sold as target nappies, it comes in lengths of up to 20m (in single thickness) So it can be used as a "target nappy" behind a boss as described by TT, but it can also be used as an alternative to a net for indoor shooting etc. It looks like a thick heavy duty felt, and I'd...

    Has anyone tested or bought the WiaWis MXT limbs?

    Jake Kaminski has some of the MXTs (foam and wood core) at the moment, and has so far posted a couple of videos on his youtube channel where he ended by saying that he would be posting another at some stage with some actual figures, I think he hinted at DFC / chrono data. Shore Shot archery has...

    AGB Advice for returning to shooting 13/5/20

    We're in a very similar situation and are planning a very similar response to boss moving, though are requesting members to provide their own "face coverings" in line with government recommendations for when "social distancing can't be maintained", and only allowing one at a time inside the...

    number of strands

    Unfortunately colour can throw things out, I found that 16 strands of Red (very waxy) 8190 gave me the same nock fit as 20 strands of White (hardly any excess wax) 8190. Both were burnished to remove excess wax under 120kg of tension, and served using the same serving material. "a thicker...

    34” arrows?

    Alternativess appear to have Cartel Triple NEOs which are A/Cs 300s are 34" & 400s are 33.5" BUT beware, Cartel use a non standard spine measurement "the spine is determined as the weight required to deflect the shaft by 20mm with the shaft supported at points 500mm apart ", So you might need...

    Everything is going left.

    Possibly. How consistent is the string picture? I'm just trying to find a logical explanation for why the group doesn't move when the sight is adjusted. If the sight pin is moved then the bow should be pointing in a slightly different direction at release, and the group should move accordingly...

    Everything is going left.

    If I understand the original post correctly, part of the original issue is not just that the group is left of center in itself, but that the group doesn't move when the sight is adjusted. Whether the spine is stiff/correct/weak, the button set correctly or not, then surely the group should still...

    Converting swaged aluminium shafts to uni-bushes - unexpected problems

    A large proportion of our club arrows have been donated by members over a lot of years, and as a result there's quite a mix of shaft and nock types, which when combined with variations on the serving on some of the club strings means it can be quite a challenge to find a set of arrows of the...

    Anybody with experience of changing from Hex 6.6 to CVX / Hex 7.2 / Hex 7.5 ?

    Bad News - my Hex 6.6s along with the rest of the bow they were attached to was nicked from our field on Monday night whilst I was collecting / plotting an end :gnasher: Good News - it looks like a "personal belongings" part of our contents insurance should cover it, so I should be able to...

    Nano Max & Border Hex6.6 Stolen - Rothley (Leics) area

    When I turned round from plotting my last end this evening, all that was left on the shooting line was my bow stand & stringer! I can only assume I was being watched to see how long it took me to walk down and plot an end (shooting/plotting 12s as tuning so slower than usual) then they hopped...
