Russ, that would be a crying shame...

Maybe just limit your updates to 4 pics?

Otherwise, let us know so we can all send admin messages that we want them to make an exception for you :)

RE: Denatured alcohol to Degrease wood

For some reason I'm thinking cleaning carbon shafts with denatured alcohol before fletching wasn't recommended because it leaves a greasy residue?

Possibly, but it's best to contact the custom bowyer and ask him.

RE: Arrow question

I've had great luck with the carbon express terminators, the heavy shaft. Tune by varying tip weight, but mine at 29" like 250 gr up front from 45-50# with my 28" draw.

For carbons, I'd recommend any that have good heft and are mid-spine. They usually like a lot of weight up front.

RE: Another question on uni nocks and inserts.

Yes, they just compression fit into the end.

I've never had an issue of them coming out, and very little turning which is an easy fix to re-index if needed for fine tuning.
