  2. General Archery Discussion
    Friend of mine is looking for a little arrow spine advice. His budget doesn't allow for total replacement as he just bought this dozen before last season. Hoyt Alpha max 35 63lb weight 29 or 29.5" draw (he's not sure) Easton FMJ 340 cut to 29" 100 gr rage I'm coming up with around 475 TAW He's...
  3. General Archery Discussion
    Hello, my neighbor has a TNT Defiance that he had me build a new string for. I believe these bows were made up until 2013??? They're 22" ATA, 80lb single cam "spot and stalk" bows. ATA and brace height are both within 1/64 of an inch of spec, it's pulling 79.8lbs, but here is the weird part...
  4. Mathews Archery Discussion
    Hi Guys, I am from the UK and quite new to archery however i have watched enough american youtube videos to realise that bow shops in the UK really arent pro shops... I have an issue with the bottom cam of my Mathews VXR 31.5 (60lbs). if I lightly tab the bottom cam with my knuckle i can hear...
  5. Arrows & Strings
    Hi, I posted this in FITA forum but didn't get much feedback so thought this may be better place to see if others that have used Mercury for recurve bow had seen similar changes. Has anyone else used Mercury string on their recurve and found that it completely changed arrow behavior and required...

    Hi need some extra eyes making sense of these tears. Took 5 shots and got these results. Not sure how to read them honestly... I can see its a tail right but I'm not sure if its also tail high? I've already flipped the stock top hats but I still keep getting the right tear. Any help interpreting...
  7. General Archery Discussion
    Hey guys, we are looking to start a new series of improvements on the app and would love some feedback from current users. Things we are considering: Animal reaction time calculator (based on arrow speed, distance, and average animal reaction time) Update the database for string specs to...
  8. Arrows & Strings
    So, I've read a few posts that kind of confirmed my suspicions, but I wanted to double-check if you don't mind. Here are the stats: Bow - Elite Ritual 33, 70# Draw, 29.5 Draw Length, RH shooter. Arrow - 5mm FMJ, 29.75" long, standard 37g insert, 100g broadhead. The bow shop set me up with 340...
  9. General Archery Discussion
    Has anyone shot bowtechs new revolt x at the 31" setting, i'm curious because when bowtech came out with the rpm 360 i had one and at the maximum 30" setting it was pretty jumpy. The new technology on the the revolt x appears to be revolutionary with user friendly tunability not seen before...
  10. Elite Archery Discussion
    Hello all, I am just starting to tune a 2015 Left Handed Elite Victory 39. 30" Draw, 62#, rest @ 13/16", center of arrow through center of berger. I am bareshaft tuning Gold Tip nine.3, 30.25" c2c, 130gn point, GTO bushing and nock. I am having a 3" tail right tear @ 15 feet. I have adjusted...
  11. Elite Archery Discussion
    So I have the cams sync'd perfectly, believe the center shot is spot on, I think nock height is good. I was shooting fletched pretty good through paper (6ft) but I keep getting this result with when I shoot bareshaft. This is from ~14 yards. I shot several times and same result. Am I looking at...
  12. F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    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...
  13. General Archery Discussion
    Having a hard time getting my newly acquired compound bow dialed in. Driving me crazy. Martin Sceptor 4, Furious cam system with Shoot through, AAE Cavalier Free Flyte rest. Bow is shooting low. 1) Arrow Rest is in free flight mode and I have ruled out fletching contact. 2) Nock has been...
  14. General Archery Discussion
    What's happening O' Wise Archers? I have a Martin Sceptor 4 compound with a drop away rest, recreational target shooting. Just not happy with the drop away rest. I feel more comfortable with a flipper rest. I'm a finger shooter. I like to feel the release from my fingers. Read some...
  15. Broadhead Discussion
    I know that there are many post on broadhead/bow tuning, but I must ask a question of the experts. Are there certain bows that just will not allow for a broadhead to have the same POI as a fieldpoint? I am currently shooting a Bowtech Carbon Knight, 60lbs, 29.5" draw, QAD Hdx Rest, Black Eagle...
  16. Bow Tuning
    Just wanted to say thanks to all the tuning information and help I received from AT members. I also wanted to warn anyone when following good information, it's not a wise idea to shoot a broadhead before the field tip - unless aiming at a different spot. I assumed I was safe aiming at the same...
  17. Services
    I am offering String and Tune services, mail-in and walk-ins welcome. I use 60X custom strings built with BCY X on the bows coming through the shop. I fully tune and set up the bow, and get the best performance possible. You will be more than happy with the results! I am very particular and...

  19. Traditional Archery
    Hi all- I have been getting back into traditional shooting and have a nice ILF rig that is suitable for my near-term shooting. I went with ILF because the easy modular replacement and upgrade of parts appeals to me, however I keep seeing the the fact that ILF bows can be easily "tuned" as one of...
  20. Bow Tuning
    so i am being a little OCD about tuning and accuracy and im wondering if there is anything else i can do dial it in just a little more. so far i have timed the cams and paper tuned. i shoot a prime so i dont have to worry about cam lean. i found high spine on my arrows and put the cock feather...
