Thanks for contributing the benefit of your experience on my topic about all my arrows going left!
Very kind of you to offer to send the connector for the sight thread, I have been looking for some but couldn't find any. Is this the way I should send my address or is there a better way?
Wally the wall bow is back on the wall. I had toyed with the idea of shooting him once more, but the knowledge that he had been repaired just didn't make me confident enough. Each time I came to full draw and anchored, the doubt crept in ," is this when I hear a warning crack?" I'm going back to my 71" Jezebelle, if she'll have me.
They are around ?22 per boss per tournament day to hire, so an increase of ?6 or so on the fee should broadly cover it (?18+ seems to be the lower end of the fee for shoots that use them), assuming reasonable take up of places.
Steve (the owner) is a great guy, they will usually help set up and take down the field, and if they are available to do so they will often stick around to help the field party out as well.
Just read your post about nan max 27" riser etc. I use 27" nano max with 36# KG NX55 limbs which gives me 44# at 32.5" draw length. The limb bolts are around half way in/out. The ACE arrows are around 360gn and chronograph says 205 FPS. 410 X10 arrows around 196 FPS.
Hi Chris, I saw your posts about selling your old Ateletic bow. I was just researching info on these as I have one myself. I'm not selling it but I'm taking it out of retirement to use as an indoor bow. Mines a 70" and 36lb. I remember it shoots lovely. Did you find out anything more about the history of them? I got mine from Perris in Essex. They did not help any further except saying they were French.
I saw a post about you waiting for your fiberbow and hoping it would not be a noisy set up as a barebow. How are getting on with that? I think barebow is normally noisier, because the tune is always a compromise. My wife shoots a fiberbow. We use one for BB and one for recurve. The BB is louder despite the carbon riser. I want to add some more weight in addition to the 350g currently. A full stabilizer and sight set up for recurve is just under a kilo. More if the components are of less quality. Thanks.
Bimble, thanks for your response to my crossbow query, still none the wiser as to why some clubs are okay with them and others not, I still think there's an element of snobbery towards it. Just as there is with other bow types. But why the chip about me not knowing about compounds? I've nothing against compounds and no beef with you so why so confrontational?
I found out something interesting about the origin.
Apparently it has a zero bias set up meaning that a bad shot can be unpredictable as to were the arrow goes unlike most bows, and because of this it's better indoors than out. Purely out of interest have you noticed this?
