    Is an overdraw really worth it? I have heard this one go both ways as it allows for torque tuning but makes everything else much more reliant upon being perfect in terms of form and everything else. Is this true? Or is torque tuning the benefit that you get, and there arent any drawbacks to an...

    Can I remove the blades from my broadheads while I'm using them for target practice? Theyre the 100gr. Velox Optimus 3 Blade Broadheads By Allen. Thanks for the help!
  3. Ravin Crossbow Discussion
    I purchased an R20 a few weeks ago and am absolutely loving it. However, I have encountered something strange when shooting at different ranges. I followed the sight-in instructions and the CB is dead-on between 20 and 70 yards. Then it slowly creeps up the target, inching its way up to...

    Although I googled it and used the search function here, I'm sure this post has been done before. I'm relatively new here, so you'll forgive my inability to find the thread. How do you determine your maximum hunting range, assuming your range is not limited by environmental factors, such as...

    One of the complaints I've seen lately about the Mathews Vertix is how heavy the bow is. However, when i look at other flagship hunting bows (Hoyt, Bowtech, Etc.) the weight is only ~ .3 lbs lighter. I have shot the Hoyt Helix, Bowtech SR6, and Mathews Vertix back to back and could not feel...

    A solid blade 100 grain head has been our most requested new product this year. My goal when engineering the s100 was to make a quiet flying, lighter weight 100 grain head without sacrificing durability, impact strength, sharpness, edge retention, cutting diameter, or precision accuracy. The...

    Does anyone have suggestions for books/videos/lessons to watch to improve my accuracy? I'm working to improve and would like to continue learning from knowledgeable archers. Thanks for any suggestions!

    Hoping that asking here can spare me some time and effort in case anyone else has tried it. My Hoyt Prodigy RX is currently set up with the highest vertatune plate, A/C/Es and Shibuya rest. My question is, would switching to the medium or low vertatune plate have any noticeable effect? I've...
  9. Western Bowhunting Gallery
    I'll share this here too since I think it's mostly applicable to western hunting, and I'm not sure how many folks pay attention to the other pages. Just having some fun, and comparing my accuracy at 150 yds with and without a 10" stabilizer on my hunting bow. I shoot five groups of three arrows...

    Here's the conundrum. I've been shooting archery for 40-years. I've been a part of local archery organizations as well as ASA. I feel quite proficient in the sport. I know how to tune my bow, spine test my arrows, etc. About 6-months ago I purchased a Benjamin Airbow. For those who don't...

    Watch this video: Following this video there will be six or more posts claiming the Nite Hawk peep cuts bowstrings. These post follow any thread that mentions the Nite Hawk peep. I question weather the people making the post have any experience with the peep. Assuming they do I am positive...

    So i shoot often. Typically 5-7 days a week at my house and I have improved a lot since I started but I feel like I am stalled out and have days of major regression. Living in the PNW this time of year makes it very difficult to practice because it is dark when I leave for work and dark when I...

    I just did an FOC calculation on my setup for the first time. I am getting something like 7.5%. I am not concerned about this with regard to penetration. I am getting 75 ft -lbs KE and have gotten pass throughs on every animal with this setup. I am trying to extend my effective shooting...

    This is a review from here on AT. Have you ever heard the saying that big things come in small packages? Nite Hawk Archery has a peep sight that has tightened my groups dramatically and has almost eliminated the occasional miss that some of us have. If you haven't seen one before your initial...

    Anyone here play around with increased FOC? To be clear, adding point weight, which increases FOC. The more I piddle around with FOC the more accurate (consistency) and forgiving my arrows become. Especially broad heads, they just start behaving.

    CBE Tek Hybrid Pro single pin with dovetail mount, includes all extra sight tapes. .019 pin (green). Awesome sight, in great condition. It does have one very small blemish where the quiver mount attaches (I dont know if youd be able to see it in the pics). This sight is listed at $349.99 on...
  18. Bow Tuning
    I have really enjoyed getting in a lot of practice, and even stretching back to 80, 90, and 100 yards. I mostly just whitetail hunt with my hoyt. When i shoot at 100, i can stay within a paper plate sized group, but when i move back in to 30-40 yards, i feel like my groups should be getting...

    Just looking to see if anyone has any advice or things that have worked with their own kids. I have a daughter, 10, and a son, 13, both of whom having been shooting in JOAD just a bit under two years now. My daughter is the typical 10-year old, taking her shooting at various levels of...
  20. Traditional Archery
    So regardless of the 3 recurves that I own, when shooting with a tab, my accuracy suffers greatly. I'm talking at 7-10yds, it's the difference between slamming a bullseye and ending up somewhere out in the 7 ring. If I go to shooting with bare fingers, accuracy improves and groups shrink in...
