    How quickly does a beginner outgrow limbs?

    If you find you can shoot the full three hours without struggling to draw or the slightest ache then upping poundage is definitely indicated. Generally its common sense though. Is this easy? Am I running out of adjustment on the sight bar? It's your archery and shelling out 50 quid for the next...

    I must admit that my idea of goals is usually - try to remember to keep the front shoulder relaxed, feel that the bow isn't torquing, concentrate on the release arm/hand.

    "Archers' Knife"???

    I was going to say that hooked blades, like that, are usually found on 'fighting' knives. Designed for slashing. Might make a good skinning tool. It looks like it would try to twist if you used it to dig out a pile though?

    Christmas club shoots

    We had a coughironmancough last weekend. Stopped half way through for soup and hotdogs and cake. Weather turned gusty which cost me an arrow, blown off the rest, but generally a fun day. Shame I failed my quiver check on another end and noticed, just too late, that I'd only shot five. So two...

    Bow explode after a release and broke nock

    Try some different limbs. If the sound is the same then the issue might be the riser etc. Even better, try these limbs in a different riser if you can. Also, don't forget that you will be much more aware of your equipment after this sort of thing. I know I was alert to every slightest creak...

    Random quiver question

    If you wanted to be really fancy, get one of those trolleys that follows you around 😆. Alternatively, get a hip quiver too and spread the load.

    Christmas club shoots

    My recurve set up was pretty christmassy anyway. Depending on the limbs, I had green, red and sparkly white. An orange compound doesn't really cut it.

    As your stability increases. Make the gold smaller. Try to simulate the size of the gold at 70m maybe.

    If you are set on your high poundage then, rather than HOLDING the 44lb or whatever, try AIMING the same weight. Put a tiny target on the back of a door and see how long you can steady aim a full set up, stabilizers and all. Use your Tab to video from various angles and see where the strain...

    Gillo GT Riser 2019

    If it became ubiquitous then maybe the design of limb butts would change too. No need to design a limb that can pivot. No need to narrow the notch section to allow the movement.

    now heres a thing I hadnt noticed

    Index up for blade rest, down for prongs and anywhere you fancy for drop-away. That's the standard I'm aware of anyway.

    I saw that one on the FB group. Didn't realise it was carbon though.

    Marking Arrows

    Isn't that braille? Or is there a different definition of Morse code now?

    Why we both love & hate 'muricans....

    I once though petrol would make a good firestarter. Lucky none of the flaming paper fragments landed in anything flammable. I used to have a XX75 shaft with a hole melted in it from using an exploding target. Think I've chucked it now. Still have my fingers and eyebrows.

    Yeah, enjoy it. You're probably nearly finished now. I was going to enter myself but vacillated too much about which day to go for. One of my clubmates was shooting I think.
