  1. Can someone help me troubleshoot my wonky arrow flight? Recurve.

    General Archery Discussion
    Hi everyone. I'm quite a newbie so I'm not sure what the issue here is and if someone could help, that would be great. My arrows fly and impact in a really strange way. It's almost like the back of the arrow is rotating around the tip as it flies (with some fishtailing/porpoising thrown in). I...
  2. Knocks effecting flight?

    General Archery Discussion
    I am curious, when shooting a Nocturnal Nock vs a standard nock that come with arrows, are there any differences in flight? Would the standard nocks cause the arrows to hit higher or lower than the nocturnal nocks? The nocturnal nock seems heavier (its 20g) compared to a standard nock (9g) that...

    Traditional Archery
    I've read a bit about bare shaft tuning but haven't tried it (I have a limited number of arrows and no way to re-fletch them if I took off the fletching). However, I have noticed that when practicing form at very short distances (<10 feet), I get a very consistent nock left with my fletched...
  4. Aerodynamic Arrow Spin Effects at Long Range?

    General Archery Discussion
    I'm a bit perplexed by what I'm seeing and wonder if someone has seen this before. My bow (70 lb Obsession Knightmare) is shooting dead on at 20 and is not noticeably off left-right at 40. At 60 I notice it's about 2" right, at 80 about 5" right, and at 100 it's about 14" right. Its...

  11. Can anyone describe how IBO flights are determined?

    3D Archery
