    Very soft button requirement

    That sounds right to me. Lots of missing info but she must be around a 25” draw if getting 32# that would suggest several spines stiffer needed. Suggesting taking the exact measurements - weight and arrow length - and looking at the Easton arrow chart with a fresh set of eyes as a starting...

    Gillo GT Riser 2019

    My Axis was around 1400g - then I had a decent stack on the rods. Around 15oz total. It was great as long as I was shooting 5+ times a week with decent volume. As soon as I had drop off it was a problem. I just couldn’t get it to feel the way I wanted with light stabilisers. I really like the...

    Gillo GT Riser 2019

    High preload would suggest that you allow the brace height to stay the same along with the extremes. I suspect that the best brace height will vary at the extremes of adjustment. So the shape of the limb is about the same but the positioning of the limb changes a bit relative to the geometry...

    Gillo GT Riser 2019

    1: I’m all for natural selection :devilish: 2: I don’t know what manufacturer that would be... as many manufacturers are testing to thousands of dry fires which is massively more damaging than over drawing by 4” 3: Plenty of trad nuts putting these limbs in 21” and shorter risers. Doesn’t...

    Gillo GT Riser 2019

    As no manufacturer that I am aware of states a maximum drawlength for their limbs there must be a base assumption that you can shoot them with as much poundage as you can get out of them. The Gillo design just allows you access to it. Hoyt were quite happy for me to shoot medium limbs at 32”...

    Gillo GT Riser 2019

    Firstly, the limb pivoting system is not new even on recurves. There was a Bernardini that did this way back in the mid 90s. But the way they have thought it through on the Gillo is clever. Without having one in my hands it is hard to see how the the pocket moves but it would seem like the bow...

    Sagittarius Blackboard missing?

    I resent that remark... :unsure: Unfortunately the owner of the board did not want us to moderate the stupidity. Freedom of speech etc. So that’s the way it goes... wonder if the moron ... a) now realises he was a moron b) still shoots at all Sigh.

    choosing arrows!!!

    Commit to one draw weight and shoot it all the time. ACE will give you a lot of arrow speed so you shouldn’t need to wind up. If you select weaker and they come out weak then wind it down and shoot it there. But as others have said, spine charts are only a starting point. Beiter Out nocks are...

    34” arrows?

    350 spine seems very stiff for the given parameters. But I grant you the various manufacturers use spine ratings I n different ways. If it’s the TechOne then it looks like they say 500 or 400 at this spec and they are 32” base shaft length. So needs some careful thought as most likely super...

    Is This The Hardest Thing For An Archer To Admit?

    I bought a set of wood/glass Krossen Xenia limbs for my kids (£90 ish from Merlin) and to be honest they are as much as most people need. With 18# limbs that are 2” too short for me I can easily shoot 540+ Portsmouth scores outside with arrows that are about 4 spines too stiff. The quality of...

    Is This The Hardest Thing For An Archer To Admit?

    OK fair enough I understand what you’re saying but I am not wholly convinced. The increased work associated with a 1# increase is tiny. I’d just question whether the improvement due to weight increase was for the stated reason. I have also seen a 1300+ archer drop into mid 1200 attempting, if I...

    Is This The Hardest Thing For An Archer To Admit?

    So the root cause is the low concentration/practice methodology. Not the draw weight. Yes higher draw weight can be used to cover form deficiencies - especially finger tension. But if you shoot 38# with a death grip when you’re ready to shoot more it will be ugly the weight will magnify the...

    what is it about carbon foam?

    I answered that. Based purely on qualitative assessment based on what I could see and feel - the Samick limbs had a very steady hold due to the harder “stop”. Less float equals more tens and Xs. But just to be clear both sets were shooting 340+ at 30m. Less was still a good number. Stretch

    Is This The Hardest Thing For An Archer To Admit?

    I’m crueller, you just spent £3k on archery gear that won’t score any better than if you’d spent £500/1000/1500 etc. It is important that while it is OK to love shiny new toys, you can’t buy points... well maybe 1 or 2. (Although some archers can buy expensive short term confidence :eek:) And...

    what is it about carbon foam?

    I’m not getting into an argument because there is no point. I have my opinion and you have yours. I’m quite happy for you to have yours. But I don’t seem to be allowed mine? Point 1 is just stupid - doesn’t appear to align with any of your other data based arguments. You are continuing to work...
