bow setup

  1. Something isn't right...I've run out of adjustment

    General Archery Discussion
    I need some help. I was previously shooting a Mathews solocam Z3 with a Trophy Ridge Peak v5. I liked the idea of individual pin adjustment vs all moving together with the react technology, but I digress. I had plenty of elevation micro adjustment shooting around 270fps @ 27.5"/ 70#. Due to a...
  2. New Traditional Archer (bow setup)

    Traditional Archery
    I am wanting to get into trad-archery from compound shooting and looking at a good entry level bow-setup and thought I would see what some of the more experienced trad shooters thought. I am interested in the ILF setups due to their tunability and multitude of limb options. Due to cost I am...

  7. Dad trying to not screw up his sons first time with archery

    General Archery Discussion
    Brand new to the forum. My son wants to learn to shoot a bow so I got him a PSE 62" traditional recurve. I am by no strech of the imagination an archer nor do I claim to be, so I was under the impression that this thing would come out of the box ready to shoot. I was smart enough to buy a...
