    Wow! This goes back a ways! Never used the double "U-rods" on any of my bows. What you should find most interesting, however is that some bows out there do have or have tried to have two cable...

    I know Forrest personally, and he does NOT "hyperextend" his bowarm. This is his "natural position" due to the way his elbow joint works. Darrel Pace, a noted Olympic Gold Medalist has the same...

    Interesting that the "click" is mentioned in this thread as it relates to a hot or a cold release.
    Many of you that weren't shooting in the early 1990's likely don't know that the "Click" is far...

    In my experience, most of the time, people are placing the d-loop TOO HIGH on the bowstring. Then, their tendency is to move the loop UP even further in trying to "tune" the bow.
