Re: Split fingers to 3 Under

My bow is a Grey Beard Longbow,sleeve type and when it is together and strung you wouldn't know it's a 2 piece...I did put a post up on the ABA website and a reply said I can shoot in modern longbow..

Re: Split fingers to 3 Under

G'day Paul...Thanks for the info,I might shoot the ABA an email and see what they say...The reason I prefer a 2 piece is that from past experience if I decide to sell a bow,a I piece is a real pain as far as shipping goes...Where as a 2 piece will go through the post...

Re: Split fingers to 3 Under

Cheers Bob...In my quest to improve my shooting I am going to go down in weight to about 45#...I need to buy another bow and as much as I prefer 2 piece if I can't shoot it at ABA I will have to go 1 piece...

Split fingers to 3 Under

At the moment I shoot split fingers...I have a Greybeard Longbow,53#@28...I am thinking of changing to 3 under and try to start shooting point of aim and was wondering if I need to change anything on the bow to do this...ie..nocking point...At the moment I just focus on the target,draw the arrow and...

Can someone explain why it would make a difference where the cock feather is??? I was always under the impression it was soley to show the arrow orientation for nocking so therefore it would be personal preference...
