  1. You are asking for answers that won't mean much...

    You are asking for answers that won't mean much to you at the moment, particularly without us knowing much about you, so the best thing you could do is go out and get a riser with a good reputation,...

    Add to that your lack of experience, and frankly you're not yet qualified to realize the difference between most risers. So you have to consider that as well.

    You already answered your own question...



    The difference between a 350 and 700 euro riser is very little if anything at all. Generally personal preference, and usually it comes down to what...

    Yet another generous contribution. :rolleyes:

    As if even you know the %. LOL. Fact is, nobody knows how many archers are "actually sponsored" George because it's a term whose definition is...

    If you're purpose is to "play" with a recurve, then it matters very little what you choose. Sorry, but that's just being honest. So just get anything and give it a go.

    I've met quite a few...

    I had this same issue. A few minutes with the correct sized drill bit fixed the problem.

    Cordovan, as gt suggests, is an excellent backing. And if your face ever takes a beating, you have a backup layer right there.

    I have used some inexpensive "suede" leather as backing and it was...

    That "cheap" Shibuya dual-click, like the Hoyt Super Rest, just keeps on winning at the world level. Pretty interesting to see how much people are willing to spend on equipment that isn't...

    If it works, go with it. Personally, I'd just slap a couple of 8-32 nuts on either side of that aperture holder, and call it good. It won't go anywhere.

    With all due respect to hockey fans, equipment plays a little big bigger role in archery than it does in hockey. But your point is still valid - lots of ways to shoot world class scores. That much...

    Remarkable that there are no Samicks on that list. My how times have changed.

    I'm a bit suspicious of that many rests being labeled as "Shibuya." Perhaps that many were indeed the Shibuya...

    Still use my 13 year-old Sure-Loc "Athens" edition sights that Steve presented to me before the games. They still work perfectly. Steve is dearly missed.

    Indeed, the smaller margin for error combined with constant sight changes (or crawl changes) and variable footing/angles AND the questionable conditions behind the bales make for a lot of lost...

    My point exactly. I cannot ask my JOAD/AA archers who all choked on the price of their competition arrows, to shoot them at a target that does not forgive a miss well. I have at least one adult...

    I think that's true for a lot of Olympic recurve shooters when it comes to field archery. They see it as more of an inconvenience than a challenge. Pity, as there are a lot of lessons one can learn...

    I do wish TV viewers could get a better sense of how far we shoot. So hard to show that on TV though.

    My bad. I had them confused with another renamed Easton arrow. Yes of course, you could try screw-in points but points that match the outer diameter of the shaft could be hard to find for a 1716. ...

    I don't think the tributes offer screw-in points, and "slanted" shafts can be the result of a lot of things, but usually an overspined arrow for the bow from which it was shot.

    Draw weight, and 68 gr. is not nearly enough for outdoor applications.

    If it were up to me, I would put compound in the Olympics, indoors at 18 meters. That's where that discipline really shines. It's where the top competition is, the most competitive history, and the...

    I think it's interesting how some people's tune changes when they become Olympians. I have thoroughly enjoyed following the American golfers through Rio. It changed their lives, and they were all...

    Yes, very different than here in the U.S., or from what I see in many other nations where their athletes have tremendous national pride.

    Okay, so that's how it started... And that's very honorable. However, if it wasn't the "parade of nations" that it has become, how many people would watch? You'd cut easily half the viewership if...

    Wow. I had no idea people from other countries saw the "representing your nation" thing so much differently. Huh.

    So, why even have nations recognized in the Olympics then? Why bother with an...

    Would have to be on snow or ice to get in. I had the same thought before I realized that though.

    A big a fan as I am of field archery, I'd rather see indoor compound archery included first. Vegas has proven for decades what a spectacle it can be. Can you imagine Olympic indoor compound...

    Fair enough. Archery is such a diverse sport. It's a darn shame we can't represent that at the Olympics.
