    Top Hat points in ACEs

    I have topcoat points in my X7's and couldn't be happier, the quality is incredible. I would have used them in my x10's too but they were sold out at the time, so got Easton points.... Cant help with the ACE comment directly, but from my experience the TopHat stuff is very good.

    Pin nock fragility - any recommendations?

    I have shot Easton pin nocks since I went to carbon arrows many years ago, and never had any problems apart from when I have damaged a nock by hitting it with another arrow... I have been using Bohning pin nocks all winter though on a different set of arrows as I dropped poundage. They are...

    Gillo or Uukha

    You just missed my old 36lb VX1000's on eBay, sold on Sunday.... One thing to bear in mind, the X curve are the super recurve type, personally i didn't like the feel of them, so went for the normal curve profile.... I don't think there is a better limb manufacturer anywhere than uukha.....

    Has anyone tested or bought the WiaWis MXT limbs?

    If you are looking at these limbs, I would suggest you add in the current offering from Uukha in there too. If your in the UK and can get to Perris Archery you can shoot the limbs there. I compared the old VX1000 against both Hoty and W&W top of the line limbs and felt the Uukha beat both by...

    Youth arrow questions...

    It was more if you were looking for some more ACC's to try at different lengths, its very easy to see any damaged ACC arrows just by flexing them, and by buying off ebay, you can try multiple spines and lengths, then when you know which you want, go buy a brand new set and sell on the used ones...

    Youth arrow questions...

    I have just had a look at this based on the current, 2020 Easton target chart.... 1214 Tributes are Y1 group, a 22" arrow and 21lb draw weight from the chart puts you in Y1 group.... Making these same arrows 2.25" longer moves up one group to Y2, so the 1214 spines will be far too weak. Taking...

    Adjustable V Bars

    Does anyone have a suggestion for an adjustable V Bar that actually stays in place? I want to try angling my twins downwards as well as back, but currently use a fixed carbon V Bar, so cant.... I am a bit cautious of the cheap versions as I can imagine them very quickly coming loose and moving...

    Angel Direct

    So your order took three months, just with no contact from them? I was looking at ordering an angel quiver, but at the time I couldn't find anyone who had actually had one delivered in the past year, so didn't.... If its a 3 month wait I may order one, though obviously COVID will have an effect...

    X10 are so weak

    I shoot x10's with tungstens. On the couple of occasions I have hit the stand with them, the arrows have been absolutely fine and pull out, usually leaving the point in the wood as I tend to use Bohning Cool flex glue rather than the Easton hot melt. I have cracked x10's shooting into straw...

    Cheapish training limbs

    Hi all, I have changed to long limbs in the past few months from mediums, and have purchased a shiny new set of uukha XX's in 36lb. I like to have a lower poundage "training" set too, and currently have a set of Core archery foam limbs in 32/68 for indoor training. Previously I had a set of...

    Archery.... is there a need for further change?

    I shoot in Yorkshire which I would say is one of the best atered for counties in the UK in terms of both what the Yorkshire Archery Association put on for a very small YAA payment each year and the number and type of available competitions..... Application to events - taking cheque payments for...

    Twisted nocks and other shapes

    Nope never used them, never even seen them myself. I did once meet a lady on an advanced coaching course that swore by a certain nock which had an inner "grip" section inside the main nock, the theory was that somehow the acceleration of the arrow made the "grip" part let go of the string so...

    Twisted nocks and other shapes

    Very soft button requirement

    This issue is still bubbling on, but she has not shot for a few weeks due to not being well..... Arrow length is 24", measured draw weight is 32lb. From the Easton arrow chart n the youth / low poundage section this puts her on the border of Y4/Y5 which gives 1500/1300 spine ACC's..... Going to...
