    Maybe I could try that. It would change my sight picture quite a bit but with such a different style of riser and bow it might be necessary. I was hoping there may be adjustments to the bow I could...

    POI too low

    I've been shooting my Oneida Tomcat without sights. Though my windage is consistent, it's been hitting consistently too low, especially with three fingers under. I shoot three fingers under with my...

    Draw length will matter for arrows though. Draw weight for a beginner is going to depend on strength and prior archery experience.

    JParanee is right about Lancaster Archery's service. If you have...

    What I meant was an aperture pin. Basically the same set-up but with an aperture on the head of the pin instead of another fiber-optic dot. It would be an easy swap/option as one is only changing the...

    These "peep eliminator" sights are a simple concept. It mounts a rear sight to your riser instead of your string. It acts much like a pistol rear sight.

    I shoot with a Bodoodle Timberdoodle II on my Oneida and though I primarily use a front sight(without peep) and only use fingers, I'm quite accurate shooting sightless with a cant too.

    This rest...

    I would want to use a longer bow for competition anyway, so that isn't an issue for me.

    I was thinking more about all of those shorter hunting bows on the market now. Losing an inch of draw length...

    Wow. A zero-parallax archery optic. It even has individually adjustable reticles and is battery-free. Incredible.

  9. Could a long "d-loop" be used for fingers?

    Probably a stupid question. I was thinking about d-loops, releases, and short axle-to-axle bows and an idea came to me. Could someone tie a fixed, long d-loop on these short ATA bows(or any bow for...

    At least we never have to worry about a rush on arrows or arrows being out of stock. In some respects, arrows have become cheaper. The opposite is true of ammunition. Much of that is due to the fact...

    The question in the original post implied that the compound and its equipment were around but not firearms or much else.

    I'm not sure they would have been adopted. I'd imagine they would have...

    By that definition, a vertical bow is the "same as a rifle cartridge". The rifle cartridge "holds its energy" chemically. A vertical bow "holds energy" "indefinitely" as long as it's strung.

    You "trim the arrow" folks make me nervous. They generally only come 32" maximum which is about all I can get away with to barely get 1" of clearance from the front of the riser.

    Just to follow up on this thread. I wound up getting an Oneida Tomcat. I've got to say that I'm very impressed with this bow.

    It combines all the best qualities of a recurve and compound into one...

    Are the limbs longer? I was thinking about buying Sage limbs for a Polaris riser and assumed that it would stay at 66". What length would Sage limbs bring a Polaris riser? Are there 50# limbs that...

    You could also get the Polaris which is offered in 66". Your draw length would not be dangerous to shoot a 62" bow at all. Many people with a longer draw length hunt with 62" bows(or even shorter,...

    I noticed what you're saying about anchoring. With the only 35" bow the shop had, they adjusted the bow to maximum draw length(I think 30") and I couldn't get a good anchor as hard as I tried. I...

    I can't say that I haven't perused the recurves in Ebay and that is an awfully tempting route. That said, I just put in a bid for an Oneida and we'll have to see how that goes.

    I tried a 35" bow(forgot the make/model) at a shop and still found it didn't fit. I don't think I'll ever get rid of my Samick and I'll continue to shoot it even when/if I get a compound. I will...

    From the looks of what I'm reading about Oneidas is that they do seem very smooth. How durable are they? I've never seen one in person.
  23. Help switching from Recurve to Compound

    I know this is a stupid question but I'm at a bit of a disadvantage. I shoot recurves and I'm considering giving compounds a try. Problem is, none of my local shops stock anything other than shorter...

    Thank you, nuts & bolts.

    I bought it from a bow shop. The strings have been replaced. I should have asked about the draw length. I was pressed for time and neglected to do that and pick up arrows....
