    Avon Skin So Soft works. It doesn't repel skeeters as well as DEET, but it's better than nothing. And it leaves your skin so soft.

    Chanting and sight setup

    Squatch, If I understand your statement (para 4) no you're not incorrect.
    I think IF the plane created by the up/down travel of a bow's sight adjustments makes the plane between it and the peep...

    OP: you won't know how they fly until you try, but you'll probably be ok with that FOC- wise. If the weight up front makes makes the dynamic spine seem too weak, you could try dialing the poundage...

    When she showed a lot of interest in archery I bought my daughter a Hoyt Ruckus on the recommendation of my local dealer. It is a compound with a lot of draw length and draw weight...

  6. Elite Energy 35 - Valley feels shorter today

    what they said. If the limb stop, which is a little Peg that sticks out of the cam and hits the limb at full draw, has moved,, that would create the feeling you're describing. If that's all it is,...

    My two cents: I agree that this problem is common in most volunteer organizations. Cliques form, things change, or they don't, and people get disgruntled and bicker. In my opinion, people join...

    With a 6X lens, I find the target is too blurry for my liking, but when I switched to a smaller size super peep insert, it cleared up nicely. It's even clearer with the smallest size peep I have, but...

    I just checked the bow's measurements against specs. Mine is just under 39 1/8" ATA, (39 +/- .125" is the factory spec, so it's ok); and just a hair under 7" BH, also ok. But the previous owner told...

    Oh, the two picks differ in that I gripped the release slightly different, I can see difference in where the serving is relative to the tip of my nose, and where the string passes the corner of my...
  13. Twists--How Much Can They Change Things

    Is there a rule of thumb on this? How much can one increase or decrease DL on a binary bow by adding or taking out twists in string and cables, before you'd hit diminishing returns and need to do a...

    400 spine arrows, HELP!

    You may be little underspined, 340 might be better, but you're probably ok. If it ain't broke no need to rush to fix it, just shoot them a lot and be happy. My main concern would be to make sure they...

    You're probably gonna sweat in early season no matter what. Wear whatever footwear you think is comfortable, but as you know archery hunting requires close range shots so you have to consider odor,...

    That paper tears don't lie. At their best, they do not tell the whole truth about arrow flight and tuning of a setup.

    Moving your peep (up,it sounds like) just a tiny bit (maybe .25"?) should give you plenty of room for adjustment back on your sight.

    I appreciate the replies. I'm still not 100% confident in my approach to the issue, but I think maybe the best answer to my question is, "it depends." Lots of different issues to consider, many of...

    These guys are right. Now Dudley says he can dope heavy crosswind effectively by watching his sight bubble (eg half a bubble off, quarter, full) and I don't doubt it. I've tried it and it definitely...

    Thanks, Sonny. I'm not saying it would. More asking if it would screw up a training program. I like variety and enjoy my longbow and hunting bows and I generally pursue things I enjoy. But I also...

    Thanks for posting. I wonder, did he have time to let down, and start over? Seems so. Most of the time if something doesn't feel quite right (E.g., enough to induce a flinch), experience suggests...

    My Victory went bang!

    Good grief! Have you let Elite know? If it was a material failure as you say they ought to know--and not only to make good on the warranty. The rest of us don't want that happening on our bows.
  29. Griv, What are your feelings on hinge speed?

    I was listening to a nock on podcast The other day and Dudley had what seemed an interesting approach to this. He said at times he has put several identical releases in his pouch all set to different...
