    Arrow rests - your thoughts

    When we set up a bow and initially perform a crude tune we are advised that we are to ensure there is no arrow contact with any part of the bow during the shot and that even the slightest touch might affect the arrow flight. What then do flipper rests do? Does the rest get "flipped" out of the...

    How do magnetic arrow rests work?

    Or you can be brave, glue a steel shaft into your riser and believe the slo mo videos. Yes it's limiting on arrow diameter, but I only have one set. I suggest prayer might work better than magic!

    Indoor shooting

    Outdoors - fast to get to the target as quick as possible and be influenced by forces of nature as little as possible. Indoors - slow? for what reason? Any answers? My thoughts; If we setup, aim and release correctly theory says that the arrow will go where we aim - independent of arrow...
