  1. DIY Equipment
    I have been looking at buying a "new" Olympic Recurve riser for myself, and I have been looking at some used options (Ie Hoyt GMX and other older but good aluminum risers). One trend I have noticed with many used recurve risers is a lot of wear, particularly around the grip area from finger...
  2. DIY Equipment
    My glossy black SF Premium riser is starting to get scratched and chipped, so I was thinking of stripping it and putting a more durable finish on... probably something less shiny, too. Is there anything I need to know specific to bow risers? I've refinished other metal items, but nothing under...
  3. General Archery Discussion
    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum. Had a question hoping someone could help me out. I'm looking for a custom paint job on an Olympic Recurve bow (both riser and limbs) does anyone know of a place in California that can do that? or anywhere within the US I could maybe ship it to? Even maybe a...
  4. General Archery Discussion
    I'm considering changing the colors in use on my bow. I've got a Real Tree Extra riser and a bunch of black accessories (list below). Anyone have experience painting (any method: brush, dip, spray, etc.) their accessories? I'm assuming the recommendation is to NOT try and change their color but...
  5. Hoyt Archery Discussion
    Anyone know a paint code or what process Hoyt uses for the new carbon buckskin color? I did my tightspot just not quite the right shade of brown. Would love to get it the right color with texture it looks good but would look better if it matched perfectly. Any help is appreciated.
  6. Traditional Archery
    Hello all, I've decided to build some wooden arrows and have been doing a lot of research. Have some cedar shafts from Wapiti. I'm planning to stain the shafts using aniline dyes and use the "Massey" epoxy finish on the foreshafts and Minwax wipe-on poly (water based) over any...
  7. General Archery Discussion
    I recently picked up a hoyt carbon matrix and when I received the bow it appears to have been painted. Im unsure how it was painted, I'm assuming spray paint. However, the finish is starting to show some wear and was curious as to what would be the best option for painting or having the riser...
  8. General Archery Discussion
    I bought a bow from a buddy that I would like to do a custom Paint job on. I am going to powder coat the riser. I was told that I can not powder coat the Limbs because of the heat. I was wondering if I can Chrome plate the limbs? Is their any other Method besides spray painting the limbs? -...
  9. General Archery Discussion
    I know everybody already knows about this problem… I am just wondering what to do about it. I own three Bowtech bows and I am the second owner of all of them. Love the bows… but the limbs on two of them are flaking something horrible! Here are my questions… - Will Bowtech do anything to help...
  10. DIY Equipment
    Maybe its a dumb idea, but ¿could it be possible to spray paint arrows (in a cool way) to make them work as the maxima red hunters? Ive crested my arrows with spray paint and had good results, but im in the market for new arrows and saw those reds. Dont like the red, but other colors could be...
  11. General Archery Discussion
    I am not a huge fan of black bows and i saw a picture of a tan CPXL figure i needed one to. Masking it off took a bit but it looks great. Not bad for spray paint

  13. General Archery Discussion
    Just bought a 2013 Bowtech Assassin. Came in perfect condition and I love the bow. However, I've noticed paint flaking near the handle. I am concerned that this will spread and was wondering if there's anyway, other than having it dipped, to fix this. I've read Bowtech has had this problem with...
  14. General Archery Discussion
    I am trying to figure out who I need to send my limbs to so that they can be painted or whatever method to make them glossy black. I have had my riser powdercoated glossy black and I want the limbs to match. Thanks!
  15. General Archery Discussion

  16. Bear Archery Discussion
    Hi, I decided to contact Bear to confirm what process was being used by them to paint the non camo bows (black, green, red). I decided to do this as I saw no reference to the kolorfusion (http://kolorfusion.com/) website that they paint for Bear. Bear Support Answer Target colors bows are a...
  17. DIY Equipment
    I am considering cerakoting my Element and one of the steps requires you to soak the item for a while in a product like acetone and I am wondering if there is any chance this would hurt the limbs or riser in any way. I don't fear the cams or any of the metal parts but sure as heck am worried...
  18. Bear Archery Discussion
    Hi Guys Thanks so much for all the help so far. I just received my brand new Anarchy Bow from Walnut Creek Outdoors (http://www.walnutcreekoutdoors.com). What surprised me was the quality and finish when I took it out of the box. I am seeing: Bear Archery emblems on both sides appear to have...
