    Very soft button requirement

    ( I am assuming she's RH archer) Was it/is it possible to set up the new button identical to the previous one? Or did you already have or suspect tuning problems? What does arrow position look like at centre shot? Is the arrow tip left of string at all? If so, you could try moving to arrow...

    Hoyt syntactic carbon plus limb detent problem

    Pity in a way. You can replace the detent by cutting down and rounding off an ACE nock pin - add a spring from a biro and job done.. ;)

    Archery Ranges Registration Changes

    I was wondering what everyone thinks of this change: Facilities : Development | Members | Archery GB | Official Website I do try to resist the urge to be grumpy so I guess there could be something in it. But I was really irritated by the "Archery GB needs....." line because I immediately felt...

    Barebow Stringwalking - FITA

    So I am reading the FITA manual (Barebow) and I read this: "2.4 String All kinds of string material and colours are allowed. The centre serving should not have markings for aiming." and then I read this (para 3.10) ..."With this system the archers have a constant anchor point. They only use...

    Compound Bow Wrist release resurgence?

    Had a great time watching the World Champs from Copenhagen today. Is it just me, or are we seeing a bit of a resurgence of the wrist release at the top level? Was a time when you would only see Dietmar with one, but today there were a lot in there - Iran, South Africa etc etc. Any thoughts?

    Arrows too stiff or other issue?

    Think there's possibly a few things to look at here. First (I read the US forum as well) my instinct is also that 1816s are likely too stiff for your draw weight too. But if you are off on the next target, there's also a chance you are sighting with the "wrong" eye - something for you just to...

    Limb problem......

    Sorry to bring this back from the dead. I discovered something today, having had a similar problem and lost the detent spring and pin (luckily found the cap screw). Now this of course won't work for everyone, but ACE nock pins are almost the right diameter (just a mm small) to make a...

    (Very) light draw weight limbs - best quality available?

    My shoulder problems continue, such that if I wish to keep shooting, I need to stay in the very low weights. If you have recent experience of limbs in the area of 24# / 26# marked - do you have a view on what are the best quality limbs available in that bracket, and why? Or put another way, are...

    How do you decide when it's worn out?

    Been shooting the same Cavalier tab for a looooong time. In fact, I realise it's about 7 years now - about 25,000 arrows! The cordovan face is all looking a bit curled up and significantly thinner then a replacement one, so I think it's time to replace and start again (I don't have a "shot -in"...

    Get coaching or waste money

    Does this help..... look at alignment of the back... Try the standing against a wall thing.... Or if you are looking in a mirror (as if it were a target), work with the stretchband and see if you can see your draw shoulderblade as the "leftmost" thing in your reflection.. if necessary stick...

    Question: Recurve - Horizontal errors

    Ok, have been practising today at about 15m, mostly trying to decide which riser to stick with for the rest of the season - it's all about what my shoulder/elbow injuries can sustain really. So I essentially have two Oly recurve bows. I've used the same limbs on both risers, the bareshaft tune...

    Gold Medallist grip...does anyone know if...

    .... there are any other standard grips that are a good fit? In my "museum" I've an old GM (old enough to be branded Hoyt/Easton). It's a RH riser and the grip has been extensively modified by a previous owner. It's very high and I bet it fitted their hand perfectly (they were clearly an ape...

    Wrist Fletcher .44... trigger weight adjustment?

    Do you mind if I ask you a question about the release-aid I bought, because it frightens me to death :shocked: It?s the Fletcher .44 . Fletcher?s website says it can be adjusted from hair-trigger to ?heavy? ? to be honest that?s why I picked it.... I?ve been around archery long enough to...

    Recuve - hand tension and release
