    Sooner or later most bows will develop a "noise". If it's not a rattle, or a buzz, it's usually not gonna go away without taking it apart.

    I'm guessing not all slides are equal. I have rigging on a couple bows with cable slides that have thousands of shots on their odometer, and the cables look fine. I'm not a wax fanatic, but all of...

    Why?

    With carbons available today, you can achieve virtually any arrow weight you want.
    Arrow weights run from 5gpi-10gpi, the speed difference with an arrow over that range is microscopic,...

    There are a couple tech references that discuss dynamic and static spine. They are not entirely the same. Most bows with an IBO of 330fps plus, put a lot of stress on a shaft during initial...

    Jerky was invented to minimize the rate at which it went funky when there were no freezers in the whole world. Most was probably eaten within weeks. Same for dried sausage.

    Hmmmm, I think I'll go check mine for tight.

    I like my Stingers, and I'll admit, mostly they look cool + quality. (I can't say that they do anything special though). But $27 for weights is a scam.
