    Many gloves now can be had with some sort of ballistic nylon webbing on the tips. I like the Black Widow "Stick Tite" glove with nylon webbing. It's heavy leather, but flexible and I figured if I...

    Thank you. I've told her not to worry, that at her level and since she's shooting indoors only, she doesn't need to change what she's doing. The "trade offs" line made sense to her. But hearing it...

    Jeb-D,
    Can you elaborate your reasoning? I'd be afraid of stacking issues with anything more than an average draw length. Working the limbs to their max capacity would launch a faster arrow, but...

    Why do you believe a back quiver is your best option? If you're mixing arrows, it's nearly impossible to tell one from another as they're behind your back. If anything, I'd look for a side draw...

    You also have to remember it's on the *far side* of the bow, compared to conventional shooting. That alone will cause the arrows to fly left compared to what you might be used to.

    How do the...

    Depending on what it is, and who is making it, chances are you might be getting a Fast Flite style string. That'll cut the break in time down to near zero. Your arrows are likely to be just fine. If...

    My wife is only 5'3" and she was advised to go with the 25" riser and medium limbs.

    It's not the fastest setup, but it shoots as smooth as silk.

    I'd say unless you can see some obvious wobble, just learn to deal with it. These bows are not like anything else, and I wouldn't expect arrows to fly anything like you're used to before.

    Besides changing just for change sake, what exactly does it accomplish to move your V-bar forward of the riser? Do the side rods have to get longer to get the weight back where it used to be?

    An extender changes the balance point.

    Which means.... Back to square one for weight tuning.

    Is it better? Is it worse?

    As mentioned earlier, the only real tuning to the side plate is out but not in.

    With a bow like this, you generally tune by shaft selection and adjust by tip weight and shaft length.
