Re: Repairing 3D targets

Hi Matt I have never used any of these, but just did a quick search on google. There seems to be a few people out there supplying 3D target repair kits.

Re: Proposed 2017 Trad shoots

My take is this. Clubs need to offset their costs, events need to be cost neutral and they should make a profit. If the costing is such that a price is "$X" and people are not willing to pay such then attendences will go down. The lack of people is the penalty for setting a price that people are no...

Re: Proposed 2017 Trad shoots

Main stream clubs, not lacking funds. No Extras, still had to pay for main meals etc. This fee was works out on a rate of $1 per arrow!! These shoots were 50 arrow weekends, one arrow per target. In a line of an old movie "Tell em the're dreaming"

Re: Proposed 2017 Trad shoots

A couple of clubs down here in Mexico (on their own accord) got greedy and tried to charge $50 for a weekend shoot. This backfired badly on them with not many people bothering to tuning up. Perhaps this is the case here, the clubs may feel that once the fees reach a certain level it just puts people...

Re: Thumb Ring for recurve

Thanks Perry

I think i tend to agree; it should come about as part of the natural form and not as a deliberate torquing of the bow. But now you have made me want to look up a full copy of the "War of the Arrow" with english subtitles preferably :)

Re: Shield cut or Parabolic for Broadheads

We must also keep in mind that animals can also hear different frequencies then we humans do, for example Although deer can hear ultrasonic sounds, their hearing is most sensitive to moderate frequencies between 4,000 to 8,000 hertz. Humans also hear best at moderate frequencies between 2,000 to 5,0...

Hi Toby These rules seem ok.

Re: Simple, inclusive, functional traditonal recommendations

When you have tuned your bow to your setup that's it, you don't tune it again unless you change your setup. It will shoot NO better than any other well made & tuned bow.

Dare I say it 8) Are steel bow trad? V. R. Dikshitar, in his book, says that "steel was the new invention and the old things were cast aside for the new". He is probably referring to the Mughal period, when the steel bow was widely used. J. S. Lee, in his article dealing with steel bows, observes th...
