RE: Cedar arrers

I've had good luck with mixing RIT dye with denatured alcohol. Use a hole package and just enough liquid so it's not real "gritty". Wipe on, let dry, and repeat a couple times. I did some black...

RE: Stringer or no Stringer?

LBR I' m guilty of using the push/pull method on longbows. I do it on my longbow and selfbows but I use a stringer for my recurves. It' s just a bad habit I guess.
