d-loop

  1. General Archery Discussion
    Looking for some advice. As the title says, I'm trying to figure out how to keep my D-Loop from over-tightening when I'm doing my tuning. I have a Nitrum Turbo that I just restrung. As I'm working through paper tuning and setting my nock height, without fail the top half of my D-loop always gets...

    Today, I read an old post that I wish I had seen sooner. I could not start my post out any better than this AT member posted back in 2015: Anyone have alternative materials and sources for nocking material? I can't imagine that BCY #24 and the likes is it. There has to be a jillion different...

    What would be the best way to adjust my anchor point slightly without modifying the draw length of my bow? My string touches the tip of my nose and comes across the corner of my mouth when my head is straight up and down but my anchor point is a hair too far back for me to get my knuckle at the...

    Those of you that use a D-loop only with no tied in nick points or brass nock, how do you know the same exact location to put in a new loop if you have to replace it? This is the first time I've done it this way. I usually use a brass nock just above my arrow nock and obviously it wouldn't ever...

    Hi, I was looking into creating my own d-loop for my new Anarchy. I found lots of videos how but then I looked on amazon for the string and there seems to be different grades. How-To Thursdays: Tie a Better D-Loop...
  6. Bow Tuning
    I have recently re-positioned the peep sight and found my proper anchor point, but after all the adjusting my metal D-ring/loop is twisting the peep-sight (the whole string) and I can't see through it. After every shot, it twists again, even if I loosen it off then tighten it back to the correct...

    Hey guys! I am quite new to archery(in fact still in the proccess of purchasing my first bow) and this site has been greatly helpful in aquiring a lot of information that I have not been able to really get anywhere else and I thank you all for that :). I have not, however, been able to...

    Does anyone have any thoughts or feelings on the spot Hogg wise guy release? It looks really cool to me and I want to try it out, but it's an expense experiment. Does any one have a review or opinion on it! I shoot a Scott little goose now and I love it, was thinking a about getting the...
  9. General Archery Discussion
    I have had two bows in my short archery life so far. Each was setup by a different archery shop. Both places set me up without D-loops. I didn't think anything of it, because I didn't know any better. So in the past 4 years I've been shooting off the string with my release. I was trying to...

    My new (bought about 2 months ago, brand new, from LAS) TRUBall HT Pro chews my D-loops. I only had about 1000 or so shots with it, before it chewed (just about) right through my D-loop - which unfortunately happened at - for me - the most important tournament of the year. I shot the same loop...
  11. General Archery Discussion
    Hey I am new to archery ! Wanna ask you guy some stupid question ! When I use the D-loop , Do I still need to tie nock points "inside" a d-loop or not? Or the D-loop can also function as nock point? I have seen the picture showing the way to tie the D-loop and I just cannot help thinking that...

    and what are the consequences of going too long?
  13. General Archery Discussion
    A buddy convinced me to let him put one of these on my bow because he claims you can't hurt them and they will never come loose. It appears very solid but it is rather large, or at least a lot bigger than the loops I am used to. Plus my Scott Mongoose release just barely fits around it and...

    Anyone who is familiar with the Nuclear Ice, if you would please chime in and help me get the setup right, I'd be extremely appreciative of your assistance. I originally posted this in the "Bow Tuning" subforum but I need alot more feedback than I am getting there and want to hear from as many...
  16. Bow Tuning
    Anyone who is familiar with the Nuclear Ice, please help me get the setup right. First off, the bow came from Sportsmans Warehouse with cams leaning and out of time. (draw stops were so bad that the bottom one barely made contact, even after the top one was seriously bending the cable) So, I...
  17. Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
