    A change of plans

    So it looks like this year may not be the all-out barebow drive I had planned. It's a shame as working hard all through the back end of last year and over winter to get my BB h/c to the low 30s I was looking forward to maybe a few county records and maybe a national placing or two. I am not...

    W&W limbs draw weights

    Can anyone remind me how W&W spec their limbs. I currently shoot Xtour which are spec'd at 40lb at 28" at the riser limb bolt mid point and that's how they draw up. This is what I expected. Something in my memory is is telling me W&W limbs spec'd at 38lb will pull up at 38lb at the limb bolt...

    Barebow back tension vs Recurve back tension

    I want to qualify for GMB barebow next year and I have a plan. It is the same plan as my Compound archery was, to shoot the very best form possible irrespective of score. Now I'm quite happy with the way things are going but I need to be sure my understanding of barebow back tension is correct...

    Why women should not do recurve archery!

    Why would you as a woman want to take up a sport where to achieve GMB you need to shoot 15 points over the gentlemen's MB score when if you shot Barebow for GMB you only need to shoot the same score as the Gentlemen's Bowman score :)

    pse flexslide PTFE strip

    Anyone know where I can get a red PTFE flex slide strip. I've looked everywhere. Australia seem to have some but shipping is a tad high at ?25. Failing that anyone know where I can source some PTFE rod. The strip is simple enough to make but finding a supply of black PTFE seems rediculously...

    Limb dampers for Barebow AGB

    Does anyone know if you can use the stick on limb dampers for Barebow AGB? I shoot with a Hoyt Nexus and was asked, at a tournament, to remove the rubber built in damper that's just below the grip. I don't know if that was for sighting or dampening reasons as I forget.

    Spinwing stiffness by colour?

    How many times have I been told that Spinwing, the original Spinwing, had different stiffness depending on colour. Even now people tell me that the Red is stiffest down to Black, or something similar. Having just returned to Spinwings for a sojourn into barebow, and noticing a new range of...

    AGB new website?

    Archery GB has a new website I think. It's quick and clean. I don't know how long it's been live, I didn't go there very often because the old one was a pain to use, but it is a huge improvement over the old one given the amount of information it needs to provide. Not finished yet but looking...

    Compound Coaching at L1

    Anyone know if a L1 coach is insured to coach beginner compound? I'm not aware of compound training and especially equipment safety/setup instruction at this level. I'm often asked by L1s and L2s to check the bows of incoming archers with little compound experience. In the past I've been happy...
