    Judging by the use of a bow scale when pulling the arrows in the video, I'm assuming these are designed for easier withdrawing from tough 3D and other targets. I can't tell if the scale is reading KG...

    Yielding is a good term for it. That's what I was missing when I first started with a hinge. I was so intent on hanging on and pulling straight back, I wasn't allowing it to move properly.

    I think the generic "just pull" applies to hinges as well. I have trouble too getting my head around the pulling movement. If you think about it, the only way a hinge (back tension) release can go...

    I just ordered the Outsider this afternoon. I'm a back tension shooter, but lately I've been having tendon issues in my fingers that make any handle release hazardous if one decides to "pop" while...

    It may be overkill, but Cisco has a free system manager that can track laptops and phones. I started using it for work, but it quickly became an easy way to chase down lost cell phones. That's almost...

    I got mine last week. Been loving it. I set it a little bit hotter than my usual. The thumb peg helps me to find my grip easier too.

    No peep is probably why your anchor didn't change.

    Back in the days of slower bows where pins were farther apart, slotted peeps were available for those of us who worried about such things....

    I need to make one last order before they're all gone. I haven't found *anything* that comes close to yours for price, fit.

    It's rather easy to estimate once you get the concept down. It's the difference between exactly half the length and the balance point expressed as a percentage.

    Example: If your arrow measures...

    Pretty much depends on your draw length. I switch between recurve and compound so I keep it short so my anchor doesn't change much.

    I don't know of any advantage of shooting a rope release through a D loop. It's usually either one or the other. The D loop saves wear and tear on the string. Using the release rope on the string...

    Sometimes you're head just isn't in the game. If I find myself shooting like that I quit. No sense in practicing bad shots.

    Fingernail buffing files work great. They're made for fine polishing and don't scratch. The padded buffers work well for getting into the grooves.

    Not really. The theory behind fat shafts is to throw away the book. Full length, super heavy tips, playing with fletching, wraps, nocks to get it "close enough" that it flies well at 20 yds, ignoring...

    It's important to remember that personal fit can't be found on the internet. I tried a lot of these at the Vegas Shoot this year, only a few really "felt right" in my hands.

    Which of these (if any) have clickers?

    Maybe it's just the control freak part of me coming out, but I need to hear that "positive reinforcement" that I'm nearing release. As others have written, I...

    The Samick Journey is essentially the Sage with 2" longer limbs. For draws over 28" I'd suggest the Journey over the Sage for the reasons given.

    You will need to remove and redo the nocking point to accommodate the rest. Glove or Tab is your choice. Target shooters seem to prefer tabs, hunters like gloves.

    I recorded myself in slow motion and learned that although I maintained an open hand, it clenched at the moment of release. Even worse, I would grab the bow *before* releasing. Now that I know that,...

    This explains my technique exactly. It may not be exactly "back tension" but my mind won't allow myself to think anything other than the release *must* move for it to fire. I ditched the thumb...

    I let it find it's natural position. To help find it, I've even slicked up my bow hand and let the grip squirm around until that point is found.

    Like you, the natural pressure point seems to be...
