    Bow Tuning
    Anyone else own one of these nice custom longbows and know approx. brace height and approx. IBO?

IBO with these details without a chrono? Also, the specs on my APA Sidewinder says the IBO is up to 318, but I can’t...
  5. Affect of Poundage/FPS on Slider Sights

    General Archery Discussion
    Will my low-poundage / low-FPS affect my choices when it comes to purchasing / enjoying a single-pin slider sight? I'm interested in being able to reach out to 80 yards or even 100+ — mainly for the sake of fun and shoots like the Total Archery Challenge. Right now, I pull back #58 (I could...

  10. Speed nock experts...Question for you

    General Archery Discussion
    I'm sure the speed nock question has been hammered into the ground and all the posts I found were general "do they work" & in my experience from playing around with them on my bows they work for me. Now the question I have is; I am setting up two bows for some youth and one of the yutes...

    General Archery Discussion
    Here's the deal, I gave up 3D in the late 90's and was still rocking my High Counrty that I bought new when (I thought) they ruled the bow world for hunting. Well I decided to to get back into it and can not believe what all I remember but my 90's knowledge is as outdated as the old bow. Heres...

    I bought a used Hoyt Spyder Turbo for $525 from someone on AT last fall. When I got it, I noticed all the Hoyt factory stickers were not on the bow. Being new to archery, I did not think much about it, I rocked on. One day I checked the speed at a local archery shop and it was about 15 fps...

    Oneida Archery Discussion
    I am going to deer hunt with my Strike Eagle this year and I am reading online that you should only use expandable broadheads, such as the Rage broadhead, if your bow shoots over 270fps. I haven't had mine chronographed, but its a long draw set at 70lbs. Anyone have specs on how their Strike...

  19. HCA X-treme over 400fps?

    High Country Archery Discussion
    So I've been doing some research on bows because I'm in the market for a new one, and I came across the HCA X-treme. On the website it claims if you shoot their speed pro arrows you could see speeds at just over 400fps. While this is a huge claim, I worry about how brutal this is on the bow...
