    Wanted Recurve sight to modify into a clout sight

    Does anyone have an old, unused sight with worm drive/micro adjust? I'm after something cheap & cheerful to modify in an attempt to make a clout sight. It seems a shame to buy something new, to then destroy it! Thanks a lot. Darron

    Spine selection for longer arrows?

    Sorry, another arrow spine question.... If my "Correct Arrow Length" (Easton definition, length to rest + 1") is 27.75", but I'd prefer to shoot something an inch longer, where should I be looking on the charts? The 28" column or the 29"?

    Recurve: Damaged limb tips - repairable?

    Hi, I've managed to damage the tip of one of my recurve limbs (see attached) - I slipped whilst stringing bow ..... To me, it looks like the black, 'plastic', layer has cracked and come adrift. I couldn't see any damage to the laminations underneath. Does this look repairable? If so, how...

    Junior Archers and Compound bows?

    Hi, My 8 year old daughter currently shoots a 54" recurve, with 12lb limbs. She's struggling to get to a target at 20 yards with this. (Although she shot it to 70 yards during a bit of clout instruction at the weekend :bowarrow:) Would a small compound bow offer any advantages? Thanks Darron

    8 year old archer and stabilisers?

    Hi, My daughter is 8 years old and has been shooting at our local club every week since July. She shoots a 54" Rolan Junior bow that will accept a long rod. I was wondering whether we should introduce some form of stabilisation to her bow? And if so what? Thanks Darron
