Default What do you look for in a 3d setup?

This is mainly for the competitive 3d shooters but I will accept answers for anyone

What kind of bow are you looking for? ie(ATA, IBO, Brace, Single or Hybrid cams, letoff...etc)

What kind of arrow setup? ie( Diameter, FOC, vane length, fletching style, etc...)

What kind of release? (Thumb trigger, BT, or wrist strap)


Of course all of these answers are relative to what class.

Answer the questions, tell us why, tell us what your setup is, and post up a picture.



Here is a question for you. This is for an open rig, but doesn't really matter either way.

Which would you choose?

Bow ABow B
37" ATA38" ATA
7 3/4" BH 7 1/2" BH
Single Cam Single Cam
IBO 303fps IBO 306
Parallel LimbsConventional Limbs
No draw stop Draw stop
80% letoff80% or 65% adjustable.

To answer my own questions.

Bow
1.ATA= ATLEAST 36"
2.IBO= I can get the speed I need out of a 300fps IBO bow, but themore the better. The faster it is the heavier I can set my arrow up, and the least poundage I have to pull
3.Brace= Atleast 7", but once again, the more the better and it depends on what game I'm shooting (spots, 3d)
4.Cam System= Hybrid cams often have many advantages, more speed, better back wall, more efficient. However with the hybrids, come more tuning issues, and they can at times be a beast to perfect.
5.Letoff= I prefer a lower poundage (#60 or less) and 65% letoff. It's a lot easier to engage your back muscles with less holding weight.


Arrows
1. Diameter= fatshafts have obvious advantages, and I prefer to use a happy medium, such as an Easton Fatboy, Goldtip Series 22's, etc. However, if you can't get fatshafts to tune, many archers have been successful with small diamter shafts such as Easton ACC's
2. FOC= For me, 8-10%
3.Vane Length= 2" low profile 3-D Duravanes work pretty well for me, black
4. Vane Type= I've been pleased with 3-D Duravanes, 2", black
5. Fletch Length= Hard right helical.

Default RE: What do you look for in a 3d setup?

I prefer the hybrid cam system over the 1 cam system.Mainly for adjustability and creep tuning ability.65% to 70% has proven to be best for me with my setups.

I also prefer traditional limbs over parallel limbs and I prefer them a bit longer,around 15".Overall a-a around 38"

As much speed as I can get and still have a smoothe easy drawing cam.Usually that puts me in the 305-310 fps ibo range and I shoot as much poundage as comfortable for a hundred or so shots(which is getting to be less each year)

For open class I don't have enough energy to effectively use fat shafts so I look for the best spine matched arrow I can find.


I must aslo be above 10% foc to achieve maximum groups at distance in the outdoor elements.Fletching around 1 3/4" to 2".I usually use helical Flex Fletch.
