    Barebow New Tab that I think will work well for me

    I got this Baremax Tab from IXPE 3 weeks before Dublin but it was so different from the Bateman I didn't want to be messing my head with it, I'm done with 3D/Field for this year and re-tuned the bow for this Tab, the crawls are very different so dialing into it at just 20 yards for Indoor season...

    Barebow A bad Stringwalking habit

    Had a hard practice time last night, really whacking my Nose on the long shots, in the end I started to get Nose panic lol Did some work this morning and figured a bad habit in my sequence which fixed the problem, something easy to forget when so focused. when I'm counting my crawls I'm...

    Rio letdown

    Watching our Estonian girl last night in Rio, she lost all her sets and was done in around 5min. One thing that struck me was her Coach looked even more nervous than the Archer, how can an Archer shoot with any confidence when the Coach visibly has none. She was positive on her interview...

    Barebow My first ever WA field round

    Shot a couple of WA marked field rounds, first attempt as BB, still snow on the ground and subzero temps so not ideal conditions. Pretty happy with 314/309, once the warmer weather kicks in I think I can improve on those scores. I kept well ahead of the sighted divs, I figured with the extra...

    Barebow Anybody going to Dublin for WA Field world champs?

    My focus this year is WA Field champs in Dublin, I will do some training and tourneys in Finland (Timo Leskinen said he would help me out) and maybe Swedish Field champs as prep for this world tourney. We have strong IFAA Field shooters and a lot of interest in WA3D but up until now very little...

    Barebow Indoor draw weight?

    I was talking to one of the top female shooters here (she a Coach also) and asked if the target guys here shoot the same poundage indoors and she said yes, some even up the poundage for training ready for outdoor season. I've normally lower mine from 42# to 36#, for me the logic is I can...

    Barebow Problems with ACE's

    I got some 570 ACE's XS vanes, 100g points cut to 27.5" for the 40# setup, they're just too weak, anyway I got them tuned pretty well with 36# Indoor setup but they just don't group as well as my Cheetah's !!! The Cheetah's are 525's 28.5" 20g inserts and 105 Tophat points , tune perfectly with...

    Barebow Question about WA Field course setup

    Putting on out first ever 24 x marked WA Field round this weekend, got info on Red/Blue stake distances and face size. It's an unofficial round but next year we will put on official competitions in prep for Dublin. We figured the only way we're going to get any experience in these rounds it to...

    Barebow Riser suitability for Barebow

    I thought we might make this a sticky for newcomers to Barebow Stringwalking when figuring what riser may be suited for Stringwalking, on paper all ILF risers should work but some just work better than others. To highlight things like practicality for Stringwalking, build quality, ease of tune...

    Barebow First 18m Indoor round of the season

    Bit of a personal victory for me, after a neck injury that gave me a poor performance in Hungary and Italy I took a break to heal and tried to rebuild my shot and mental game, it has been a challenge over the last 4-5 weeks and some days it was so frustrating that I felt like throwing in the...

    Drop tune method, not just for tuning

    I was helping a club member tune his new arrows, after we got the basic bareshaft tune we used the drop method to figure out the fine plunger tune. My Vanquish/CV limb set shows me just how great a WA3D setup it really is (33y max) on my 10y crawl walkback from 10 to 35y I very very little drop...

    help solve this tuning riddle

    I was setting up my Moon riser as a backup bow and ran into a perplexing issue. Both my Moon and Vanquish risers are using same limbs, plunger make, arrows etc, both bareshaft tune great to 25y for Stringwalking and run out of crawls at 55y but with the Moon riser the arrows start to drift left...
