  1. 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...

    I was given an old 30" stabilizer for my compound bow that has a set weight on the front and was looking to upgrade. I was wondering what a good starter setup would be that's not too expensive but has adjustable weights? I'm looking for a 30" front, a single adjustable v-bar mount, and a 12"...

    I've heard a lot of good things about Magnus broadheads but I'm just curious what you guys think is the best one.. Black hornet or stinger? Bleeder or no bleeder? Serrated or no?
  4. General Archery Discussion
    I'm just getting back into archery after a solid 8 year break and I never really cared about what I used in the past because I was never serious about it. But I've been doing research to figure out what kind of arrows I should buy, what spine to shoot, how much weight to have up front etc. In...

    Hi everyone! After shooting compound and horse bow(thumb) for some years I want to buy a ILF bow. I have a 31.25 inch draw and i am 6.3; but my main limitation is that I live in Eastern Europe, thus making many of the trad providers from the US very expensive. As i want a ILF bow, after a lot...

    Hey Everyone! First post on the forum here. Looking for some advice from everybody. I recently installed a MBG Ascent Verdict Assault sight (RH) on my 2015 Bowtech Carbon Icon (70#, 27.5DL) shooting 5mm Easton FMJ's (540gr). My question is if there is anybody out there that might have some...

    I have a Parker Enforcer and I've broken the Tri Loc Quiver Mount Bracket yet again. (Since Parker went out of business) they seem impossible to find online and exorbitant when I do come across one for sale. Any suggestions on an alternate method or compatible mounting system? I know...

    Hey AT, I have a new ritual 30 set at 30"/70#. I've had it for a month or so and I'm having a major problem with the let off. The draw stops are maxed out and even when the bow is at full draw if I relax my bow hand it instantly pulls forward and jumps. It is causing a lot of unnecessary...

    Hello! So, this bow I picked up this bow at a thrift shop and was looking buff it out, string it, and give it a go at shooting. Problem is, I don't think it's a recurve bow, and don't know if a recurve bow string for it I bought will work. I have no idea what type of bow it is, and most...

    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"...

    Hey guys, my first time posting here. I am looking to purchase my first ever compound bow. I have done a fair bit of research but I can't seem to get a clear answer on some things. The main problem i'm running into, most people recommend a midrange bow like the diamond edge for a new user. I...
  16. General Archery Discussion
    I am somewhat new to archery and have been trying to research how best to set up my new Xcursion 6. Through my research I've encountered what appears to be fairly well agreed upon arguments for drop-away rests and the limb-driven rests, which are in contradiction. I am hoping those of you with...

    I just picked up an SF Forged plus riser and I set the arrow rest it came with on the hole closer to the front. After looking at other set ups and showing my pro shop guy, he asked why I put it there instead of the hole closest to the back. Should I move it? And if so, will the glue still hold...

I am shooting off the shelf and the material on the shelf is getting worn away really fast. Is there anything I can do to prevent that? 2. The feather that...

    I just bought all new equipment. The tek target sight site tape doesn't fit. I went through the whole posses a few times adjusting to get the tape to fit. The bar is all the way in on its closest setting and the garge is still not indicating a tape to use. I shoot a lower poundage because I have...
