    I have been hunting since I was in high school, but just recently decided to take up bow hunting. I'm starting from scratch as far as acquiring gear and purchasing my first bow. I've been bugging my bow hunting buddies to death with questions, and what I have learned so far is: Mathews is what...
  2. General Archery Discussion
    Hi All, I've been learning archery for about six months and recently upgraded my riser to a WNS AX from a Ragim. I had already bought new limbs on the Ragim, so I wanted to make sure the limbs I purchased for my new bow setup would be a heavier draw weight so they would "last a while," and I...
  3. F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    These are three components I just don't understand the differences between. What makes one clicker better/more expensive than another when they are all basically just a thin, slightly flexible piece of metal? I've read articles claiming that inexpensive plastic arrow rests are sometimes...
  4. General Archery Discussion
    I just recently started doing archery, and I'm in the process of getting my first bow (!). I'm focusing on recurve, trying to get into Olympic recurve, and one thing I can't figure out is what draw weight I should be using. The range I've been renting a barebow at has been giving me 24# draw...

    I need a hard shell backpack that can carry all the target recurve equipment I'm planning on getting (riser, limbs, arrows, sight, full stabilizer setup, quiver, and other things I am probably forgetting) safely on an airplane. Unfortunately it seems like all the abs cases that look convenient...
  6. F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    I'm just starting out with archery and recently decided on going with Olympic recurve as what I focus on, so I've started looking at parts I would need for my first bow. Talking to the guys at my local range, the general consensus there is that I should be getting a 27" riser (since I'm about...

    I've only gotten into archery recently, and I'm still trying to figure out what style I want to invest my time and money into most. I've rented compounds from my local shop a number of times now, and was getting quite consistent with them over a short distance at their indoor range. I just took...

    So I know there will be the brand fanboys but I am not one “yet.” I have never shot a bow before. I have an appointment on Monday at a local shop, they specialize in Matthews bows and don’t stock any used bows for purchase. so the fun part. What do you consider to be the best “budget...

    Hey all, Finally joining after reading up a TON on this forum in the past. Looking to dabble a bit and convert from compound to trad bow; currently working on a halfway step of doing a recurve with a very simple sight. Looking forward to getting to know you all! :)
  11. Broadhead Discussion
    Evening all, new to the archery world, starting out with a 415 fps crossbow… what is your opinion on the best broadhead to run with? Most likely going to go with a fixed blade.. it will be backed by a 20 inch 442 grain pile driver shot out of a killer instinct burner 415.. I have always hunted...

I bought a Bowtech Revolt as this years primary bow and have been working on it for several months now (yes my tuning...
  13. Bow Tuning
    New to tuning. Mostly new to archery (3 years at it) - tuning has been a byatch (excuse my french). So many voodoo ways of doing things, so many opinions on how, and so much lingo. Tuning a Bowtech Revolt. 70#, 29.5 DL. Right now tuning with a Easton Axis 5mm 260 spine with a 100 gr Ethics...
  14. General Archery Discussion
    I am a newbie archer. I've always loved target sports and sports where you compete against yourself, so archery is a great fit. Recently I received permission to hunt on a 10 acre suburban property, so I've made the dive. For about a month I've been outfitting and learning and thought that...

  17. General Archery Discussion
    I'd like to start honing the skill, I have around 400 dollars to spend, but I have been told I can get a good complete package for less than that. Could you point me in some direction in terms of what to be looking for or what to buy? Also, please give your opinion on the bow mentioned below...
  18. General Archery Discussion
    I recently bought an older Carter big kid 3D release for a great price on marketplace. My only question is that, this is a thumb release but has no “barrel” the knurled part of the thumb release. All that is there are two small metal pegs. Are these the way it’s supposed to be? Am I missing a...
  19. General Archery Discussion
    Hi, I’m new to archery this year so I wanted to check with you all before I did something stupid to my bow. Problem: the top wrap of my peep sight has come loose. Question: Can I retie it myself without using a bow press or taking it in? It seems simple enough, but I wasn’t sure if cutting the...

    Hello, I’ve been using your forum for years for information and never really created an account. I decided I wanted to start collecting some Elite and Mathews bows and this seemed like the right place to look.
