    I don't see any "tearing apart" going on at all. This has been one of the most helpful threads I've seen in a while.

    Problem is, even in a city with a few million people, it's hard to find any store that stocks them. Compounds (especially hunting camo) are their big money makers. Everything else is ordered. I can...

    On the other hand, women's sizes in compounds are sorely lacking. My wife has about a 25" draw. If she wants a compound she would likely have to settle for a kid's bow.

    Too much finger influence to get a good paper reading. Bare shaft is almost as bad. I just watch the flight of the arrow and tune for minimum wobble.

    Looks nice! I don't always have someone to handle a camera, nor do I need to review each and every shot. I imagine this would work well just free running on a tripod, looking at it only when needed.

    On the other hand, this was shot with a cheap PSE wood riser bow with bolt on limbs. It's nice to have top level gear, but it's not necessary. There is the law of diminishing returns as...

    Arm guards are fun to make. I adapted the shape from an old guard I used to have. Colors and pattern depend on my mood at the time.

    A two inch piece of black electrical tape down the side of the left lens worked for me. It doesn't affect my "straight ahead" vision and only blocks the target when I have my head turned at full draw.

    I routinely rotate between two bare longbows, sighted target recurve, and sighted compound. I enjoy all three types.

    Having said that, I can transition fairly quickly between the three bow types,...

    I'm hoping to get that same level of support on my recent order. The string that came was way too thick to fit my wife's 26# recurve and her small arrows. I'm hoping to get it resolved soon.

    My groups got tighter after I "lubed" my bow hand. Just a dab of arrow release lube I had in my case across the lifeline. It helped my hand settle in to the grip without any undue torque on my part....

    If you want to stay with a tab, try the Black Mamba. It has three finger loops and stays rock steady in the hand. You really can't position the plate incorrectly. The design of the loops won't allow...

    I thought the way you did until I realized that I was just adding one more chance to wobble. Since taking that extra hinge out of the equation my shots got better.

    If you're working just on form, stick to 9M and take off the target.

    Nearly every jig is adjustable to some degree. If I want a right twist, I just adjust the front a bit more than the back so the fletch goes on at a slight angle.

    I've always used a straight jig, but also add offset. It does the same job as a helical clamp, you only need the special clamp if you want to offset more than what the straight clamp will allow.

    For those who want to play with a pinky hook, I'd look at the new Win/Win tab. At least with this one, it's adjustable, probably more than actually needed. If you decide it's not needed, you can...

    I love my Toelke Whip as well. ZERO hand shock, most comfortable grip I've ever had on a bow.

    Here I am winning a tournament at a recent Ren Faire with it.

    The rubber piece fits between the knuckles of your index and middle finger as a spacer so you don't pinch the nock. The cinch should have a plastic adjuster on it.

    It can be modified with something as simple as a rug rest with a matchstick under it to give it a high point.

    Arrows going low after a weight adjustment seems to be a "timing" issue. Even with the same number of turns on each limb, I'd still suspect cam travel is off. Did your nocking point position change?...

    It sort of depends on the bow, but I'd go off the shelf. The Bear Hair kit is a nice self-adhesive setup for not much money.
