    What's AVRS?

    Meant to say the original fat x10 stabiliser was a fabulous feeling stabiliser and as I recall was priced in a way that they hardly made any money on them. The boutique weight fit and oversize diameter just made them hard to sell. I nearly but not quite bought one. Now price doesn’t seem to be a...

    What's AVRS?

    My original is a ACE rod was a UHR (ultra high resonance) there was also a HR (guess what that stood for?) which was less stiff and I didn’t like so much on my bows. I think it was intended for lighter draws. I still have a ton of ACE rods including the first longrod and twins I bought in 92...

    What's AVRS?

    Nothing wrong with old taper tube stabilisers, many really good and really effective products as long as you don’t want to stick a lot of weight on them. I loved my AGF rods but when I was shooting 49# and ACE arrows they wobbled a lot. So I tried an ACE rod (the latest and greatest thing which...

    Marksman Portland 2000

    How much it sold for originally is irrelevant. They are nice bows, fast and relatively easy to tune. They are a bit collectible mainly for reasons of nostalgia. I’d expect them to sell for £100 to £150 depending on condition. Any more than that and you’re better off with a £200 bow from a...

    What's AVRS?

    AVRS was first used in the second generation ACE rods. As stated above, Advanced Vibration Reduction System. It’s basically a capsule of powder at the non-distal end. The size of the capsule varied over the 24”, 29” and 34” rods. So a 34” cut down to 29” shoots a bit different from a 29” (but...

    AGB Advice for returning to shooting 13/5/20

    There are loads of this type of pin available on eBay if your normal dealers are out of stock. It’s not a recommendation (I like the Beiter pins myself) but crap pins better than no pins ;) Stretch

    AGB Advice for returning to shooting 13/5/20

    Apolgies, I should have said people required to use PPE through their occupation. I was being lazy. (My organisation is the same, otherwise I wouldn’t know). These folks also have some good resources, posters etc. How to Safely Remove Disposable Gloves | Globus There is also WHO guidance and...

    AGB Advice for returning to shooting 13/5/20

    Just remember if deploying a solution that requires the use of disposable gloves then you also need to train people how to correctly/safely. It’s not difficult but nobody (outside of medical professionals) does it. Stretch

    Has anyone tested or bought the WiaWis MXT limbs?

    The Border bit... I have seen the CV9 profile, Sid has pics on the site. So I know it is not “more extreme” but it is their next thing. The light weight under the clicker is something I have mixed feelings about. My Winnex were 1# per inch and they were very floaty at full draw and made me very...

    Has anyone tested or bought the WiaWis MXT limbs?

    So yes they are the next step but on a potentially divergent path. As the OP was talking ILF I took that as a given. Or has the limbs shape gone backwards? Either way they are more Marmite than the other limbs on the list. Stretch

    Has anyone tested or bought the WiaWis MXT limbs?

    The first two limbs you mention are simple evolution from what has gone before (EX Prime/ and Power and Veracity). The CV9 is the latest on Border’s Super Recurve path. I don’t think you can compare them anyway other than shooting them. Super/Extreme designs (see also Ukkha XCurve etc) are loved...

    Brace height sound variation

    Kevlar destroyed bows too. I killed a KG1 riser, a set of KG1 limbs and a set of Hoyt glass limbs. Normally the failure was at the limb tip (apart from the riser of course). I shot about 46# with Beman Diva off a 72” bow and for sure it was not slow. I’m not overly convinced on the modern...

    Brace height sound variation

    452x stuff...No, I wouldn’t recommend a Vectran blend string on a recurve either. But as this shot with no vibration or noise I wouldn’t hesitate. Something about the setup really liked the no stretch string. I certainly wouldn’t expect the same 99/100 setups. When you put a Vectran based...

    Oh and forgot to say “developed for” usually means that there is appropriate planning consent for re-zoning. Unless you shoot on council land, what are the chances? Putting up fences and bosses does not equal “developed”. Stretch
