    I'm no knife expert, but that is some beautiful craftsmanship. How many decades did it take to develop that skill? Do you make these for sale?

    Love mine as well. The Sage is the best all around bow for the $ there is. Mine has 40# limbs, but I may go up to 45 or 50 for hunting. My wife has one as well (25# lefty). Mine tuned up at 8 1/4"...

    My Sage sure quieted down as I approached an 8" brace height. Started at 7 1/2 and just kept twisting until it quieted down. At least that's my personal experience.

    Thanks again for all the help fellas. Those little felt dots were just the ticket. The Allen bolt was all I could get at the local Ace in 5/16-24X 1. It works like a champ and cost about 75 cents...

    I got back into archery two months ago and made the mistake of going too heavy. Start light (30-40 lbs) with a bow that you can upgrade limbs on later. The fellas are right about no let off, a 55 lb...

    I wonder why the huge disparity between 20 and 30 yards? The difference between 10 and 20 isn't that pronounced. I'm going to try a pin sight for my longer distances, we'll see if it helps. I do...

    Thanks fellas, it just so happens I have a pack of those felt pads in my shop. They were were originally bought for cabinet bumpers for the kitchen. Such an obvious fix, and simple. Thanks again.

    I thank you guys for the advice. I'll leave her arrows at 28" and have some 1516's or 1616's made up for her, besides the 1716's work perfectly for my 35 as I draw 27" even. I did do a measure of her...

    Kinda wished I had started with a 35@, 28", rather than the 52@28" I did. I have since bought a 35 # razorback for fun, but I haven't got it tuned in yet, and shoot better with the 52. The lighter...
