    Couple of things come to mind. First, are you sure it is fishtailing? If you use a different color cock feather and you arrow is spinning, it can look like it's wobbling and it's really not. ...

    Very glad it worked out OK, but I'd have someone else look at it as well as that explanation doesn't sound quite right to me.

    If you have a bow press, press it immediately and very, very carefully. Be aware that it can dry fire any time it feels like it right now, so keep it in a place it can't damage anything if it fires...

    Ya, first time I looked at it I thought I was better off using someone else's arrows rather than fill out the form, but if you stay with it, it's probably better than standard charts. The first step...

    Tried VAPs when they first came out and ran into the same problems with Victory adapters bending and cracking arrows, outserts that would not pass the spin test and both came off in targets. So gave...

    Modern compounds can be tuned to a fairly wide range of spines, so don't worry if your not exactly at optimal spine as long as your reasonably close. My hunting bow is at 60#s / 28" DL / 320 IBO. ...

    What are you going to use them for? Hunting, informal shooting, 3d, field, indoor, maybe all of the above? What type of bow and what are you using now. Budget?

    I've tried Doinker, B-Stinger and Dead Center hunter kits, i.e., about a 10" front bar on a quick release and 8" sidebar with a bracket and quick release. Personally like B-Stringer the best.

    Just a friendly suggestion. Unless you've got a very, very large backyard, don't shoot broadheads there. It's always possible for an arrow to get away from you and if it gets into a neighbors yard,...
