    Longbow - the easy choice ?

    Thanks for that clarification. I see what you mean now. With the two sets of string notches on the bow I mentioned earlier, I think the archer could use other combinations to adjust tiller for string walking.

    Longbow - the easy choice ?

    Could cut cheese nicely, though. I am a little unclear what you meant by adjustable strings. Were you thinking of other ways to fix them to the limbs; or ,,,???

    Carbon arrows for non all-carbon arrow competitions

    Or.... how about a thin ally tube round the outside instead of inside. That way, you won't be in danger from any splinters. I'm surprised no one else thought of that; must be ahead of my time!!! Oh, hang on a minute.... you would need special piles to do that... ones that fit the inner carbon...

    Carbon arrows for non all-carbon arrow competitions

    I would be inclined to put the foil down the inside. It is possible to attach it securely along its length so it doesn't bunch up at the front, after the shots.

    Longbow - the easy choice ?

    Wonderful, post! I love that sort of independence. Many years ago, a local bowyer made his wife a bow with two sets of string notches. She fitted the string into the notches further from the limb tips for shooting 80y. For closer shooting, she fitted a longer string into the other pair of...

    I totally agree. For safety sake they should wind down to zero.

    Perhaps they included that to show the difference between write and rong??

    Compound release aid rule change

    I think that what is used as an aiming device is a red herring here. The issue is, will the arrow overshoot the safety zone? The position of the hands( and the elevation of the arrow) are the most easily seen parts of the likely cause if there is a danger over an overshoot

    Sight Block

    Heehee isn't that just typical,

    Sight Block

    I wonder if the sight block idea was a throw back to days when sight blocks were on the riser facing the archer, and therefore clearly visible.

    Compound release aid rule change

    Bimble, I think that rule does cover all types of archery. It actually states the overriding reason for having the rule. Perhaps the issue isn't the rule, so much as the way some judges allow a draw technique that clearly does not keep to that rule. There is also the matter of archers breaking...

    Compound release aid rule change

    The hands are better, I feel. Even the archer can judge those as they are likely in the archer's view.

    Horizontal is something most of us can judge quite well. Well enough to spot a draw that is clearly above that.

    Compound release aid rule change

    I think I could tell if an archer was attempting to stay on the boss all through the draw. Even if they seemed, to the archer, to be well off it part way through. I still think the two hands should be about level with each other. That keeps the arrow more or less horizontal.

    Jerry that doesn't work, Start and finish on the boss does not state where the sight is during the bit in between. Remain on the boss from start to finish?

    Bow press

    Archery comes in different forms, for different types of archer. Shooting at coloured rings on paper or even pictures of animals on paper, doesn't always grab our enthusiasm. One of the things that I found to make archery more interesting... for younger archers, and people like me... is having...
