  1. General Archery Discussion
    Reading all these threads about the Creed XS has got me thinking. Here is my question: What is more critical in forgiveness, ATA or Brace Height? If you see a short ATA bow, it usually has the BH to compensate. If you see a short BH bow, it usually has the ATA to compensate. So, which matters...
  2. PSE Archery Discussion
    Hello everyone, I recently started archery, and have been lurking this forum over the past month. I am hoping that another owner of the PSE Nomad will confirm his or her usable brace height for me. I recently purchased a PSE Nomad recurve, and it was setup by my local archery shop. When I...

    Hi, I am confused about where to measure the brace height of my olympic recurve bow. Can someone please tell me to what location on the raiser I should measure the distance from the string? Also I would like to know where the string needs to sit against the bow square. Against the aluminum or...
  4. Bow Tuning
    I am new to archery and recently purchased a used Iron Mountain Custom Longbow made by Mike Forester. It is AMO 62" 60# @ 29" and I am looking for either someone that has one of his bows or just some recommendations on where to begin with tuning, namely brace height for this beautiful bow. My...

    I always hear about shorter brace heights being harder to shoot. How much does it really affect your accuracy? I know most of the the technical data behind it... Arrow on the string longer, shorter BH can catch on sleeves of hunting wear, etc... I shoot a Z7 Xtreme 29/70 and thinking about going...

    Hi all, I've been shooting modern PSE and Samick recurves for several years, but always wanted a 60-70s style takedown recurve. Last week I was fortunate to acquire a Ben Person Marauder 2-piece takedown in a decent condition. It is 60" AMO and 65lbs at 28". I bought a new 56" B50 endless...

    Ok everyone I am in need of some advice and helpful hints. I recently purchased a new set of strings for my 2012 Bear Anarchy from Proline Bowstrings and they are great. Only one issue... I have twisted the string down to 1 twist per inch and the bus cable is probably about 1.5 - 2.0 twists per...
  8. Bow Tuning
    I just got a new SX-1 I have an issue with the brace height. It is almost a half inch to long from factory specs. How many twists would I need to put in the cables to get the proper load on the limbs and bring my brace height to factory specs. I have also noticed as of late that most all bows...
  9. Traditional Archery
    Just got my new Martin L-100 bow today in mail from Cabelas. Came with Ragim Dacron string for 62 Inch length bow. 55 lbs draw at 28". Actual string length is 58.46" When stringing, do I need to twist string at all? I test strung it without any twists and string can be easily seperated. The...
  10. General Archery Discussion
    Soon, I will be purchasing a new bow, potentially the Elite Pulse with a 6" brace height. In full support, my friend says brace height doesn't matter anymore. With string stops and fall away rests, short brace heights don't affect accuracy. Is this the general consensus? Or does brace height...
  11. General Archery Discussion
    This may have been asked a thousand times, but i looked through the first few pages and didn't see anything that really applied. I am looking to get a faster bow mainly because I am horrible at guessing yards!!!!! A good friend of mine stated that any increase in speed given the same bow ATA...
  12. General Archery Discussion
    Hi - I am getting ready to change the string on my Bear Truth 2. From what I understand there is no critical cam location, just set the axle to axle and brace height to spec. The brace height spec is 7 inches. My current/old string set up is approx.... 6.875 inch to the deep part of grip...
  13. General Archery Discussion
    I'd like to know... If a deflexed riser design makes an "easier shooting" bow.......... (And since designers have been able to get some "decent" speeds from them)........... Why aren't there more players in this technology??? I think that BowTech & Maitland are the only two in this "game." (I...

    What is brace height? The FAQ on QAD website talks about what to do if your brace height is less than 7 inches. I'm trying to eliminate my vanes hitting my fall away rest.
  15. General Archery Discussion
    I have a 2010 Axe 7 and I am trying to max out the limbs. It has 70 lb. limbs on it by the way. I don't know what the space between the riser and the limb needs to be. I don't want to tighten them down so far that I may run the risk of breaking something. As of right now, I have about 1/16"...
  16. Build Along
    Greetings gang- I am green to this sport and am intrigued by it more for the process then the result. By that I mean as long as a walk in the woods is had, with rod or weapon, or with out looking for mushrooms, it has been a good day. I suspect many of you are of the same inclination. That...
