  1. another tiller question....I know, I'm sorry

My setup is comprised of a 21" excel riser with black max 2.0 shorts. With the bolts 1 turn out the top tiller is about ( 7" )...

  4. What exactly is a "symmetric" recurve riser?

    F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    Hi, everyone. I recently purchased Uukha HX10 EVO2 limbs. They appear to be great, but I am somewhat concerned that my pair might be mismatched. If I set them to neutral tiller, then switch the upper and lower limb, I get 14 mm positive tiller. (Which, I suppose, means there is 14 mm negative...
  5. Nock point really low?

    F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    I recently increased poundage by turning in the tiller bolts a bit, and cut my arrows because they were showing weak. Was doing some bare shaft and walkback tuning yesterday, and the bare shafts were hitting low, so I kept lowering the nocking point. The bare shafts did not group with the...
  6. Safe to shoot this string on this recurve?

    Traditional Archery
    So I recently got my hands on an old Bear Cub recurve. I ordered this string from amazon to try on it. What I didn't realize is how big the loops are on the string, they look like they're for a hungarian or chinese composite bow. This is what they look like on the limbs, and here's one of the...

  8. Determining Riser Lengths- Bend-Through-The Handle Bows

    Tom Turgeon - Q&A Bow Building Forum
    Determining the length of a riser when building bend-through-the-handle bows can be a bit confusing. Where do you start and why? What is gained or lost in the selection you make? But don’t allow questions like these to hold up your next- or especially- you FIRST bow build. Personally, I...
  9. Is a compound bow most effective when power is set in the middle of range?

    General Archery Discussion
    Is a compound bow most effective when power is set in the middle of the range? Most compound bows have a 50lb-70lb adjustable power range. It is adjustable via the tiller. I noticed most competitive shooters (shooting for accuracy) shoot a 60lb bow. Is so happens that 60 is in the middle of...
  10. Different Tillering Procedure for Trad, R/R and R/D Staves?

    Tom Turgeon - Q&A Bow Building Forum
    This seems to be a fairly common question from bowyers who have 5-10 bow builds under their belts: Tom, I was wondering if I have to handle the reflex reflex and the reflex deflex staves any differently than past Traditional bow builds. Are there any major difference in how I need to handle the...

  12. Tiller importance?

    PSE Archery Discussion
    So, just curious, do you think tiller tuning is as important as it used to be? The reason I got to thinking about it; my wife is shooting a 2013 chaos one and though I'm uber diligent about things, the other day I noticed the lower limbs were about .5 mm farther out of the pockets than the...

  14. Nocking point/ tiller relation

    Traditional Archery
    Hey guys, I'm fairly new to traditional archery (2 years) so bare with me. I am tuning my 45lbs hoyt buffalo and shooting off the shelf with 3 fingers under. Currently I have a positive tiller on the top limb of 3/16". The bottom of my arrow shaft sits 7/8" higher than square. I had to go that...

    General Archery Discussion
    My new Redhead Kronik is shooting a 2" nock right at under 15 yards. I'm new to single cams, have been shooting an old PSE Polaris and a Clearwater with duel hatchet cams. After shooting the Kronik for a few days to get used to it and get it set up right I've discovered that torquing it a bit...

  17. Tiller adjustment for point of aim (possible dumb question)

    Traditional Archery
    Thanks to some advice from Sanford, I am shooting more consistently, but my point of aim is now very slightly lower than I want it to be, meaning that the top of the point of my arrow was sitting nicely at the 6:00 point of the bullseye (looked like a snowman), but now the top of the point is...
  18. Hoyt Vantage Elite - limb adjustment

    General Archery Discussion
    Hi I have a 2009 VE with XT2000 cams. The limb bolts seem VERY stiff though - it takes pretty much as much force as I can put into it (with a normal Easton "multi" allen key) to turn the limb bolts - and it's not because the side bolts or the bolt at the back (i.e. inside of the riser) is tight...

    I need some help since I'm going new to ILF risers in the near future. I'm going to order a 25" Samick Athlete riser with Samick Universal Glass Recurve Limbs (24#/short) and I heard they don't include instructions on setting the tiller bolt and a good chance there it isn't set to factory...
