    Barebow Weights

    Where's a good place to get weights from? I looked around last year and it was not obvious that the wieghts I was seeing were ment for the job or for adding to some system. I made one out of 22mm copper end stops and lead but it would be nice to try a few.

    [OTHER] Got an Osprey

    50# in black and am just getting the hang of it but looks and behaves like a dream. I was wondering though - what would it be called? Traditional, of course, but flat like an AFB. Reflexed like a HB and recurved like a... recurve! A bit Turkish? I like to think it's the kind of bow Odesius...

    Is this allowed?

    [Horsebow] Thumb tab

    Do we think a thumb tab (made of leather as apposed to a hard thumb ring) would be acceptable in the ArcheryGB traditional class? Or does it have to be 'finger' release?

    Controversial - long rods

    I post this only because my own experiments, while being relatively new to archery but with a good feel for mechanics, has led me to question some broad brush received wisdoms that, in my opinion, are floating around. No disrespect or offence intended, if it works for you - its good. Here goes...

    Nock path at release

    Something is puzzling me... I understand the outline of the physics behind the archers paradox but what I'm wondering - The nock is connected to the string throughout the acceleration of the arrow. The main motion of the string is towards the riser but also back through the centre-line if the...
