Things to look for in a new bow: proper tiller; straight, clean glue lines between laminations, with no gaps; smooth rounded string nocks; straight limbs with no twist; comfortable grip sized to your...

RE: what finish for bow

Automotive clear coat, altho it's highly toxic during application. Take the bow to your local bump shop and have them spray a couple coats on. They'll probably do it for free while they've got a job...

RE: Arrows...What do I need to do?

Gobbler, you're lucky. The fellow at your archery shop knows his business when it comes to traditional tackle. Your bow was made by AMARCO (American Archery Company) which was based in Illinois and...

RE: Arrows...What do I need to do?

Lets clear up a misconception -- "Fastflite" is a string material; "Flemish" is a method of making a string. A flemish string is not necessarilymade of Dacron. There are flemish strings made of...

RE: broad heads or mechanical?

The normal rule of thumb is that you need 50ft/lbs of kinetic energy for mechanical broadheads to be effective. This would require a traditional bow that can shoot 600gr arrows over 190ft/sec,...

RE: Papertuning

I paper tune all my bows (FITA & Longbows) exclusively. I start at 5yrds to allow for initial paradox. Once I've got a bullet hole I back up to 15, 20, and 30yrds to verify. I'm too lazy to mess with...

The problem with many gloves is that the finger stalls aren't long enough to allow a truly deep hook on the string. For this reason I use a tab exclusively. There must be a reason every Olympic...

RE: No-glove

The no-gloves add about 40grs of weight to your string at the most critical point which will reduce arrow speed significantly.

While it seems counter-intuitive, a deep hook on the string will...

RE: Cedars

A rough rule of thumb is that cedars will normally weigh approximately 10grs/lb of spine, i.e. a 50# arrow will weigh approximately 500grs with a 125gr head.
