    Hoyt Xpert wooden bow - set up help

    A '60s classic & amongst the first imports from the USA by UK dealers/retailers. Came to market in US in '60 & was being offered in UK by Lillywhites from '62. Personally I think they're great & sweet shooting bows - I have 4 & did my first clout shoot with one back 2010. It was also one of 2...

    Can you help identify this vintage recurve bow?

    Back in the day it claimed to be the first bow to offer poker &/or twins - personally i don't know anything about shooting with the attachments as never done it myself.

I tend not to make continuous loop strings, but use the jig to do centre servings when I don't have...

    Tape/coating to change colour of limbs?

    holds up fine - look for spray suitable for fibreglass car bodies ....but regardless it should be a fine/thin coat with spray. Are you good enough to use a brush & put on a thin coat without brush strokes? .... I'm not!

    Tape/coating to change colour of limbs?

    lightly sand the "white" limbs with 400grit paper, & spray with can of Halfords (or other low cost brand) darker colour. They may suggest using an intermediate undercoat .... up to you if you do. You may need multiple coats to cover & can always finish with a coat of clear to protect against...

    Would you like to help with a project?

    I was given this a while ago, similar to but not a Ross. It only does a 4-fletch (or 2 if you want to be different). Was some speculation as to it being a Ron Palmer prototype.
