    Comfort vs Speed

    After talking to Sid I went for 65" Flemish twist string for my 66" bow (Hex 7.2s). The 8125g string at 64.5" just didn't have enough twists to get down to a low enough brace height.

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

    I've had my limbs for about two weeks now - but haven't had the chance to shoot them much yet. However I did discover the 64.5" string was too short. Sid recommended a 65" flemish twist which definately works for getting down to the requiered brace height (6.5-7"). My set up is a 25" Uukha...

    One more...! Sid has told me I'll need a low brace height - 6.5 to 7". So I guess the 64 1/2" string would give me more leverage in terms of getting a short bh? Cheers

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

    I've ordered some 7.2h's - 66" bow 36lbs. Will a 65" string do the job? I've been told by Borders that it'll need 8-9" loop serving and I'm thinking 16 strand 8125G. Tried to contact a string maker but not received a reply and Borders haven't as yet clarified recommended string length. Any help...

    Comfort vs Speed

    I'm currently shooting W&W Graphene limbs 38lbs/66"Bow/27" draw length. The limbs are terifically fast but feel a bit 'dead'. I moved to these to reach 90m whilst not having to shoot too high a poundage. They've done the job admirably but they're not much fun to shoot. From the Border range...

    Graphene vs Velos

    Hi All I'm currently shooting the W&W Graphene limbs which are unbeliveably quick. I do however find them a bit 'dead'. Very probably they're too good a limb for my limited skills. Has anyone tried and compared these with the Velos limbs which I believe give a smoother shot. And how do these...

    Brace Height Slipping

    Hi All My brace height keeps slipping whilst I shoot. Even after a few ends today it moved from 8 5/8" to 8 1/2" after just a few ends. Its a new string but I've had this happen a lot. Is this a common problem? Shooting recurve 38# short limbs. Apologies if this is a dumb question.

    Fletch size Indoor & Outdoor

    Hi All I'm currently shooting 2" spin wings on a 38# recurve. I heard somewhere that smaller vanes are preferable outdoors (I have a pack of the same fletches in 1.75"). Any thoughts?

    Limb Length

    Hi all I'm currently shooting a 66" recurve with a 25" riser and short limbs. Is it feasible to change to a 23" riser and use medium limbs? I understand the longer the limb the more "forgiving" the shot. Ta.

    Hitting Bow Arm

    Dear All I keep hitting my bow arm with the string. Any thoughts? I'm am currently experimenting with a more open stance though this works less well at longer distances. I shoot recurve. But not very well. Cheers, Colin
