  1. PSE Archery Discussion
    Hi, I am an owner of a PSE Carbon Air HD 2016. I had my limbs replaced a while ago on a warranty due to a presence of a splinter. After shooting approximately 1000 shots, I have encountered a new splinter (crack?) on one limb, on the compression side. What is interesting, the splinter is...
  2. Traditional Archery
    I noticed tiny cracks in the side of my lower limb. It's a new bow. Only had it for about 2 weeks. It's a fiberglass recurve 62". The cracks are only on one side and I'm not sure if they were caused by stress or If they are just surface scratches. They are horizontal on the right side of the limb.
  3. How to Shoot
    Okay, so I'm new to traditional archery. Or effectively new, at least. When I was little (around 10 or so) I did target shooting with a recurve. I don't remember why I stopped. I forgot basically everything in the meantime, though. I recently started to want to hunt. Due, I think, to my...

    Hello! I have a question about a new bow I just purchased. It seems to have a crack/seam near the tip of the upper limb, which can be seen in the photos below. https://www.dropbox.com/s/cbh6jzyjaw3ba17/IMG_0843.JPG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/v4nn1uiolzga7zz/IMG_0845.JPG?dl=0 It is clear...

    Hello, I had recently purchased two brand new Samick Sage Recurves from Vision Outfitters and I have some concerns about them. Now I may just be a little OCD but since these are my first wooden laminate bows, I am uncertain as to what are acceptable imperfections or cause for concerns. The bows...

    Hey guys, Would love your thoughts or opinions on this. I have a predator recurve that I purchased in november develop a hairline crack about 2 inches long in the riser, sent it back and they graciously refinished it for me. Now, the thing is that you can still see the crack under the glass...
  7. General Archery Discussion
    Ive been noticing that my nocks on my arrows have been cracking after being shot a bit and they are not being slapped together due to me shooting 3 spot at 18m. This is making me wonder about the durability of goldtip nocks alltogether, not just the standard nocks. I'd like to hear your...
  8. General Archery Discussion
    Hello, I'm 14 and was given a bow some days ago. Then, I began drawing the bow without really loosing it, so I could get used to the drawing motion. However, when I finished full drawing, I began leading the string to it's normal position(again, without loosing it) when my fingers slipped, dry...

    My Samick Candidate has matching half inch long cracks on the outside of the top and bottom limb pockets. They developed some time between when I shot yesterday and today: how dangerous is it to continue to shoot with the riser? They aren't that big and that part of the pocket isn't directly...
