    It's rather easy to estimate once you get the concept down. It's the difference between exactly half the length and the balance point expressed as a percentage.

    Example: If your arrow measures...

    Pretty much depends on your draw length. I switch between recurve and compound so I keep it short so my anchor doesn't change much.

    I don't know of any advantage of shooting a rope release through a D loop. It's usually either one or the other. The D loop saves wear and tear on the string. Using the release rope on the string...

    Sometimes you're head just isn't in the game. If I find myself shooting like that I quit. No sense in practicing bad shots.

    Not really. The theory behind fat shafts is to throw away the book. Full length, super heavy tips, playing with fletching, wraps, nocks to get it "close enough" that it flies well at 20 yds, ignoring...

    It's important to remember that personal fit can't be found on the internet. I tried a lot of these at the Vegas Shoot this year, only a few really "felt right" in my hands.

    Which of these (if any) have clickers?

    The Samick Journey is essentially the Sage with 2" longer limbs. For draws over 28" I'd suggest the Journey over the Sage for the reasons given.

    You will need to remove and redo the nocking point to accommodate the rest. Glove or Tab is your choice. Target shooters seem to prefer tabs, hunters like gloves.

    I recorded myself in slow motion and learned that although I maintained an open hand, it clenched at the moment of release. Even worse, I would grab the bow *before* releasing. Now that I know that,...

    Think of your release construction and the angle/pressure you need to set it off. Back tension doesn't just magically "work", you still need to move the release in the proper direction to get it to...

    I let it find it's natural position. To help find it, I've even slicked up my bow hand and let the grip squirm around until that point is found.

    Thanks, I just came to that conclusion as well. 4 lbs from bow weight or pulling down, it's still four pounds of draw weight. Confusion has finally cleared.

    That's my point exactly. To get an accurate reading you need to calibrate your scale to zero, something bow shops seldom do.

    The bow is pulling down on the string by 4 lbs. Why wouldn't the scale read that too? Actually, it does unless you zero it first. Then, any additional pull added by you would be the actual draw...

    Okay, so then when you pull the bow down it's added to the 4 pounds that the bow itself is already pulling, right? To make it simple, if the bow weighs 4 lbs and you add 10 pounds of pull the scale...

    I still don't see why this would happen. If the bow weighs 4 lbs, the scale reads 4lbs. As you pull down it doesn't restart at zero it just goes from 4 lbs up to the peak weight. What am I missing...

    Hanging bow scale?

    I've always wondered something:

    Why don't people zero out the scale with the bow hanging freely on it? Wouldn't it be more accurate if you didn't have the additional poundage of the bow hanging on...

    It's pretty much the same thing. The diameter of the arrow determines the width of the wrap you buy. Most allow for a tiny overlap, if any. I'd rather have an overlap than one that comes up short.
