    Tuning advice please

    And so I think I have come to a conclusion; I bought these limbs as a gateway back into archery and because I didn't want to go straight back to the 68" 28lbs I had before, I reckon I was drawing those to about 32-33lbs with my draw length (it was a long time ago). I think I'm going to get...

    Tuning advice please

    Thanks everyone The more I think about it, and I've thought about it a lot! I think these arrows are over spine, I bought new lighter limbs which are not only 4lbs lighter but 2" longer. I suspect my original arrows were upper end of their table for the old setup as I was new, they are now...

    First step on a very tall ladder

    What a nice sunny day in Kent. We took to the field at 11 for 'sighters' after a leisurely set up and preceded to shoot an Albion/ Windsor round. I was shooting a Short Windsor which is a bit wussy for a senior male but I haven't shot 60yds yet and don't have a button on my bow yet. It was my...

    Hi Everyone I wanted to get some info on if there are any advantages or disadvantages of being tall and having a long draw length when shooting. I'm 6'3" and pretty substantial weight wise and having been doing my beginners course. During the first week my coach had me using the second longest...
