    correct spined shafts for longbow

    I had a Bickerstaffe. It was really nice to shoot right up to the part where it broke in half and hit me on the head 🤪

    for field archery I could see compound limited shooting wood arrows with nice round wheel cams. They would look the part for sure. Those round wheel bows were lovely to shoot. I don't see much application for long distance target archery though with wood arrows.

    What should we discuss next?

    I have never seen anyone shoot a wood arrow out of a compound and probably never will. I see no advantage in doing so. The discussion seems to more about how each bow delivers their respective energy.

    correct spined shafts for longbow

    Sounds fair. In my case our bows are made by the same bowyer, Gary Evans so at least that is similar. They are only 7lb different at our given draw lengths. I will do some experiments at the club this weekend. It’s fun to play around with stuff 👍

    correct spined shafts for longbow

    Black band for elevation, point of arrow for windage. No need to aim off if the weather is calm. So you have two separate sights to check before release.

    correct spined shafts for longbow

    Well we have yet to test it longer than 10 yards but this is point on ( or well under at this distance) I'm pretty sure a bar shaft test would show quite different results. Fletchings mask the effect considerably.

    correct spined shafts for longbow

    My wife and I are both shooting longbow. She can shoot my arrows and they petty much group in the same place but lower ( heavier arrow) as her arrows, yet my bow is 10 lb heavier at my draw weight etc. I reckon as long as they are matched to each other it's a good start.

    That’s depends on the cam. I would say the first inch is dependant on let off then after that a huge acceleration of 60lb. No tickling going on. Check out the arrows supplied for these super compound cross bows you can buy now that shoot full length arrows. Stick a wooden arrow in one of those...

    What should we discuss next?

    In my humble experience yes people do think they can buy points. To some extent you can depending on what level of progress you are at. I noticed an improvement when I swapped ACG arrows to X10 arrows. What goes through peoples heads beats me. Bolting bits on a bow without knowing why seems a...

    Yup sounds about right. Most people in our club only shoot at the club. To be fair we all get different things out of archery and have different goals though

    Indeed my bow shoulder is getting a workout for sure, I quite like it though. I'm doing a steady 100 arrows a day at the moment so should be OK

    Did you shoot better for it? How did it effect your scores?

    What should we discuss next?

    I think the kings new cloths plays a part with some bolt on bits. The price of some long rods is insane IMHO. If we check out scores from 15 years ago and compare them to now have they improved much? Whats with the trend to add large weights to compound bows? it's not uncommon to see 16oz on the...

    I understand your point, however said archery shop went mail order only in December so should be tooled up for just that. The items ordered aren’t exactly exotic or Color specific and listed as in stock. 12 arrow shafts, 12 piles, 12 nocks, 3 bags of fletchings and a longbow bag. The only...

    Thanks for the input. I’ll see how it goes next season. I’m feeling reasonably confident I’ll be OK on my own for now.

    Thanks for the offer 👍I’m in Yorkshire though so that’s not practical. My wife shoots longbow now as she finds it less stressful physically. I love making arrows so it’s all good.
