    Just a quick rant to get it off my chest. Just got back into shooting and needed to update my arrows. Not wanting to spend a ton of money right off the bat I did a bunch of research. Everyone out there seems to push this big name brand or that big name brand. I came across Element and liked the...

    I've been shooting barebow recurve for about a year now, but prior to that have built/maintained/tuned my kids bows for a number of years. That is to say, I'm reasonably confident with most aspects of recurve build, setup and tune ... except that using arrow charts remains a frustrating mystery...

    I ordered a Mathews VXR 31.5 at 60 pounds and need to buy new arrows to shoot this year. I want to go with the Easton Axis 5mm and don’t know what spine to get. The arrow shaft needs to be 26-3/4 inches long(I have a 27 inch draw length). If I go with a 50 or 75 grain brass HIT insert and a 100...

Arrow - 5mm FMJ, 29.75" long, standard 37g insert, 100g broadhead. The bow shop set me up with 340...

    I have been shooting for about a year. Well actually I started about a year ago and had a 4 month break so however that works out. Using a 25# barebow wood composite recurve and a 31 inch draw length. My instructor and the arrow selection charts agree 500 spine arrows. Which is all well and...

    So my buddy is asking my opinion regarding what spine FMJ he should shoot. He's kind of right in the middle on the charts, He shoots a 65 Lb / 27 inch Triax. I told him from my very modest arrow spinning experience to err on the side of caution and let's ask the some of the pros. I think he...

    I just bought an Xcentric 6 at 65 lbs and it’s a good deal faster than my previous bow, which was also at 65 lbs. I shoot 28.5” black eagle zombie slayers because that’s what my small local shop carries. They are 350 spine and my concistency with them isn’t good with the new bow. It’s the right...

    Hi all, I'm relatively new to archery and I'm looking to buy my first bow and set of arrows. My draw length is around 27". I'm most likely going to get a Samick Sage (good price for a beginner bow) in about 30 or 35 lbs draw weight (seems to be a good weight for a beginner male), hopefully...
