    Actually, most times you don't end up on top doing this. I've done it a few times (mostly because sellers would only ship to "lower 48"), by the time you pay for your mailbox, gas, import taxes AND...

    I didn't realize that's the range of the flash... I thought it's the effective range for the lens on the camera. It will mostly be used in the day, so the flash doesn't really matter.

    I'll look...

    I'd like to say the baseline is around $200, and if something is twice as good for an extra $30-50, I don't mind spending a little bit extra... So $300 after taxes would be the upper limit.

    It isn't.

    OK... so, 2 types of spine - static and dynamic.

    Static spine = how much an arrow bends in your hands when you flex it (to put it simply). This has a standardized way of testing - 29...

    Brings the center of mass of the bow lower and further away from the pivot point (your arm/hand) so in theory, the bow should settle faster.
