  1. Bow Tuning
    Background... Worked this bow up last year to the "T". It was shooting dimes at 30 yards. I had worked it up at 70 lb draw weight. I also had tuned my arrows, I had a 5 arrow set (for hunting) that were like laser beams going down range. And except for occasional thwacked shots (my bad form)...

    Hey Archers! When I first strung my bow, the draw weight was way higher than listed weight. (This was many years ago, just getting back into archery now and wanting to confirm my setup is correct. I have an SF Premium Riser & Limbs 25H-26lbs-66") Is there any information you can provide or...

    Hi there, I am currently looking to buy a new Recurve Bow next month and I've made some research on what to watch for on Bow etc... But i'm still not sure what Draw Weight i should go for... I am quite in a good shape and fit so i suppose i could be loose on what Draw weight i could use, but i...
  4. Bow Tuning
    Just wondering.... Think I know the answer. I tend to find my DL is very sensitive to changes. When the bow is short of my proper DL I fling shots badly because I am cramped up and not aligned properly. When it is long for my proper DL, when I get to full draw the bow is not totally in the...

    Hello all, I have a pse dominator pro with dc cams (long draw build) and I am looking for a set of the 961 limbs with a lower draw weight. The set I have now is a 30 deflection and makes the bow around 63-73 # roughly. I'd like to get it down to about 43-53 #. Does anybody know what deflection...

    Hey All, Just started back to the hobby. Shot recurve a lot as a little kid but fast fwd 20 years and I just bought a whole compound setup for the first time... I've started to do some research on arrows and there is a LOT of information to say the least. 1) First off.. What exactly do I...
  7. G5 Technical Forum
    Hands on experience will be greatly appreciated, I've been on the market for a used Prime in #60 because it seemed to me the waiting time on the new Primes is way to long..... Turns out I have to get shoulder surgery in the new 2 weeks and will be out of commission for 4 months so now I can wait...
  8. Traditional Archery
    Hi all! Not sure if I'm sharing this in the right section of the forum but here goes! I shot a lot in high school and college, but haven't in years. I now have some health problems that severely limit my draw weight. I need like a kid's bow, maybe 15lbs, because I can't pull more than that BUT I...
  9. Bow Tuning
    Relatively new to bow smithing. Got a LC Press, Draw Board, scale, Vise last year been toying around with them, while learning the steps of tuning a bow. This weekend wanted to get next seasons bows in shape and ready (they are new bows so they need the whole enchilada of setup and tuning)...
  10. General Archery Discussion
    Recently hurt my shoulder and wandering if it was from pulling my bow. After 12yrs off I started fresh this year with a 28" VXR set at 62 lbs. After learning lots on here about new arrow technology I recently ordered some Axis Pro 340 shafts with 50 grain brass inserts to up my FOC so to...

    Is there a way to tell what limbs are on my mathews monster chill r to know what is the min/max draw weight?
  12. Elite Archery Discussion
    I’m shooting more often as of late and realizing that fatigue sets in pretty quick for me at 60#. I have my Traverse turned down to 57# for hunting. I‘ve had some health issues and my strength has suffered as I’ve lost ten good pounds. After hearing Elites can lose their feel when turned down, I...
  13. Traditional Archery
    So I've been strictly crossbow hunting for 8 years now and have had plenty of success with bear, deer, and some with spring gobbler. Life story aside, I've been looking for a takedown recurve because I do a lot of off-grid backpacking and it would be nice if I'm able to do some hunting while...
  14. Elite Archery Discussion
    Hi, I have been shooting a PSE Xpression for over 2 years now and would like to change to an Elite Rezult. Right now I am shooting at 18m paper target only and my draw weight is set at 39.5 pounds on my PSE (a 50# bow with 10 turns down). I am 53 and I can't draw the PSE at 50# with enough...
  15. General Archery Discussion
    Hi all, I started shooting compound a few months ago, and I got a compound bow with 45 lbs of draw weight. This feels fine, but I'm buying a new bow, and I'm wondering whether I should get a 40-50 lbs or 50-60 lbs bow. My thinking is that I can probably shoot 50 lbs without too much problem...
  16. General Archery Discussion
    Hello. This is my first post on Archery Talk, and have a few questions with perhaps a longer answers... My questions: Are stiffer spine arrows safe to use with a lower draw weight compound? How does a stiffer spine affect accuracy on a lower poundage bow? How does a stiffer spine affect...

  18. General Archery Discussion
    I recently posted a picture of my deer on another site and it showed that my arrow didn't pass through. I got asked about my setup and I got a lot of questions about my 60 lb draw weight. Just curious how many other archers have theirs lower?? Is there a calculator online that tells you what you...

    My wife is brand new to archery and is starting out shooting the Hoyt Klasher with a 25" draw length and a 30lb draw weight. She is really enjoying shooting but wants to be able to pull more weight and have the arrow travel flatter through the air. End goal is to be able to hunt later this...
