  1. How to keep D-loop from over-tightening?

    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...
  2. Alternative sources for less expensive, High Quality D-Loop Rope!

    General Archery Discussion
    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...
  3. Adjusting E35 anchor point

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    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...
  4. Replacing a D-loop on your string

    General Archery Discussion
    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...

  6. Metal D-ring twisting string.

    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.

  9. Shooting off the string (No D-Loop)

    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...
  10. TRUBall HT hinge - chewing my D-loop

    General Archery Discussion
    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...

  13. Knotless D-Loop?

    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...
