  1. Bow Stringing Question

    General Archery Discussion
    Hello, complete novice to archery here. So, I just bought a 56" wooden recurve bow at a thrift shop that didn't come with a string, has no markings indicating what string is needed or what the draw weight it is, and now need to know what (actual) length of string to get for it. I have a 50"...
  2. I can find a rest or sight screw now!

    General Archery Discussion
    No more scrounging trying to find a rest screw long enough or a sight or quiver screw long enough or short enough. It wasn't cheap, but I stocked up on screws. I found myself wasting too much time looking for bolts the length I needed. It seemed like every rest or sight I picked up lately...

    CrossBow DIY Equipment
    I am building a PVC crossbow with a wooden stock. I am using a partially formed stock from a larger project that didn't work out, and I am planning on cutting it down to a smaller stock. The question I have is, what should the general relation be between the bolt length, the groove length and...

  5. Setting carbon rose to 28"?

    General Archery Discussion
    My friend wants a carbon rose bow but she has a 28" draw length and the carbon rose advertises a max 27" draw length. If I take some twist out of the string and cables, can I get the bow to perform reliably at 28" of draw length, or is it not possible to squeeze 28" out of this bow?

  7. Brace Height Question - Arrow Length (Weird)

    General Archery Discussion
    I have a Bowtech 101st Airborne and it has a brace height of 7 1/4 (7.25) and ATA 36 1/4 and I just purchased a Bowtech BOSS with a brace height of 7 and ATA of 36. With the brace height being 1/4 (.25) inches shorter on the BOSS and the ATA being 1/4 inches shorter, I would think the arrow...

    General Archery Discussion
    Hey guys/gals, I've had my OB Evolution for about 2 months now and put a few hundred shots through it, great bow. Now that I feel that I have broke in the strings I have decided to check all the measurements, timing, etc. and all except the ATA seem to be within spec. I know that this is a...

  13. Side rod length suggestion?

    F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    I'm going to upgrade my stab set later on this year and I'm wondering what's a good length to get for the side rods. I currently have 30" long rod and 10" side rods. Would upgrading side rods to 12" show significant changes or just stick with 10"?

  15. What formula riser limb combo would be the fastest and most forgiving for me?

    Hoyt Archery Discussion
    My draw length is about 27" so I was thinking about a 27" riser with short limbs. Right now I shoot a 25" riser with medium limbs. I was thinking that this will make the bow faster at the same poundage. And that I have a short enough draw for the short limbs.

  20. What do we really KNOW about optimal arrow length?

    General Archery Discussion
    Although I have seen discussions about node points relative to the arrow rest by Easton and in classic archery texts, what is really known about optimal arrow length? Obviously a shorter arrow is lighter and has less wind resistance both in forward and lateral directions, but for short distance...
