    Scottish Government Lockdown Ideas Page

    As far as ideas is concerned. If you bring sports back, do so only in controlled locations with some documented safety procedures and only the most solitary sports first. Any new Covid cases, check for links to these sports. Slam the door shut at the first sign of a link.

    Not forgetting that the demographic for people catching the virus will change as our behaviour changes.

    Aye, but accepting the personal risk isn't the point is it? Lockdown aims to reduce the spread of Covid 19. The benefits being a reduced strain on the NHS and reduction in deaths of vulnerable people. Going out because of favourable odds just adds another potential transmission vector.

    AGB - no membership refunds

    I was thinking BUK. Bow-persons UK. Or AToAUK for All Types of Archery UK.

    AGB - no membership refunds

    AGB provides a centralised framework. You could get by without them. Personal insurance is <£20 a year so everyone could get independent insurance and save the rest of the AGB fee. If every club did this, then competitions organised by clubs, could carry on as normal. I could even imagine a...

    AGB - no membership refunds

    Well, I like those ideas. I've noticed coaches regurgitating facts with obviously no understanding of them. So, where there's doubt or inconsistency and hearsay and, let's face it, opinion, create some definitive answers.

    In the spirit of Geoff's thread....

    Thanks for the offer Geoff but it was the higher wrist position and wider profile of the recurve grip I was thinking about playing with. I noticed that the bar taped grip of my budget compound seemed less prone to vagueness in hand position. Or maybe the word should be 'choice' rather than...

    In the spirit of Geoff's thread....

    Has anyone ever fitted a recurve grip to a compound? My W&W riser grip is a fraction too narrow to slide on smoothly. Are any other manufacturers risers a little thicker at the grip attachment? Its not that I want to drill and tap the compound but it would be nice to experiment. The compound...

    Tungsten or tungsten carbide(-cobalt) points?

    Interesting. In number 3 are you planning on using scales to work out the density of the tips, thus allowing you to determine if they are pure tungsten or not?

    Serving Materials Too Slick on Tab

    I bought a reel of Diamondback at the start of my recurve career. Never finished it so it's all I've ever used. Didn't even know it was possible to get slippage. I tried once. Levering the riser back and forth at part draw but it took a lot of force to get any movement at all.

    From the Lions' Den - A freestylers' journey.

    Just been to Morrisons. No flour. No muesli or rice, except the more 'bespoke' types. Loads of bread though. Shopping a bit more expensive now that the shelves are emptier. Not sure people are really taking the hoarding seriously 😁. Shelves full of low sugar items and posh stuff.

    Cheapish training limbs

    I've always used the SF Axiom Plus for budget limbs. Now called WNS Axiom Alpha I guess. Around sixty quid.

    Has anyone opened a Stan Perfex thumb release aid?

    Aye. That's the one. If the hook is supposed to be spring loaded then, as you say, you'd need a second spring to flip the sear into locking position. I guess that this release automatically locks the hook? In normal operation. No need to click a lever to latch it?

    Has anyone opened a Stan Perfex thumb release aid?

    However, this depends on how you operate the release. On my hinge I flick the hook back onto a magnet with a finger on one type. On the other, a little elastic band does the same job. I'm not sure the handedness of the spring works like I've suggested but you might be able to experiment. Hours...

    Has anyone opened a Stan Perfex thumb release aid?

    I think we're talking at cross purposes. The thigh spring is the little one on the hook. Not the big one for the trigger. I can't see why you'd need one on the hook but I dont know what the hook action feels like on a Stan. You could put the thigh spring on the latch pivot and use it to preload...
