    [Horsebow] Grozer bows - advice needed

    I've been looking at some Grozer bows recently and I've got my sights on the biocomposite laminated hungarian bow. It's also available in a short version, which I think I prefer but I'm wondering what the differences will be? If anyone has any knowledge/experience of the two types I'd really...

    Bamboo shafts...

    Hi, so I've bought some tonkin bamboo shafts and I'm in the process if building arrows. At the moment I'm cutting the shafts to length and drilling them for points and nocks. The bamboo has a soft centre that powders when you poke at it and I was wondering if it was safe to remove this stuff...

    Fastflight string on KG Osprey (or similar laminated wood bow)?

    Hi, does anyone have experience with using a fastflight string material on a laminated wood bow, specifically the KG Osprey? I emailed KG and they said that although some people do use a fastflight string with this bow, they only recommend using Dacron strings. Of course they are just being...

    Nock groove size?

    Edit: long story cut short, are there any nocks for aluminium or AC arrows that have a larger string groove than the standard 0.098" large groove nocks? Thanks

    For Sale Hungarian horse bow - 50# - Brand New!

    I'm selling my hungarian style horse bow, draw weight of 50# at 28" (max draw length = 32"). The bow is pretty much brand new, apart from a couple of minor scuffs on the leather wrapping which must have happened during transport. I've only drawn the bow, never shot it. I found it was a little...

    Leaving my recurve bow strung

    Is it damaging to the limbs on my recurve bow if I leave it strung for a number of days? A lot of people say it is bad for the limbs but then I've also heard differently. They're pretty expensive limbs, carbon with a wood core.

    Nocks for my navigators

    Hi, I have 610 navigators with pin nocks. After having a look around I found that navigators spine 610-1000 take ace pins (I bought the arrows second hand so I didn't know this). I've just ordered up some beiter in-out nocks but I can't understand why they have different nock sizes for the 610...

    Measuring string length?

    Hi, I'm thinking of ordering a string from Ryan Jeavons @ TwistedStrings but I'm not sure as to how I would go about measuring the string exactly. On their website it says to measure the string from tip to tip. Is the measurement taken with the string on or off the bow? If its measured off the...

    Point weight?

    Hi, I've bought a used set of 610 nav's and I want to know the point weight as it seem a little to heavy. The problem is I don't really want to remove a point as I have zero experience dealing with this stuff and I don't have a set of scales sensitive enough anyway. I measured the FOC and its...

    Jager grip

    Hi, I've decided to go for a Jager best 2.0 grip for my Hoyt matrix recurve. Being a novice, I have been recommended against it but I've decided that I really don't like the stock grip and feel its really affecting my performance. I'd just like some recommendations on the colours of the grip as...

    Arm guards?

    Hi, I've had a habit of hitting my arm guard with the string lately, and a lot of the times it's even getting caught underneath my arm guard and hitting my bare arm. I'm working towards not hitting my arm and trying to make sure that my arm is kept out the way, although this may take a while. In...

    Draw length?

    I have a question about draw length. From what I understand the AMO draw length measurement is to the centre of the button + 1 3/4 inches and this measures exactly to the back of the bow. My arrows measure 29 1/8 inches to the end of the shaft and I've found that I'm drawing such that the shaft...

    ACG arrow spine?

    Hi, I've seen some ACG's with a spine of 610 and length 28 5/16 inches (nock groove to end of shaft). This is the perfect length for me but I'm wondering if they're correctly spiked for my setup. I have 34# petron pro extreme limbs wound in to about 35#, and I have approximately a 29-29.5"...

    Eye dominance problems

    Hi, I am right eye dominant, but I'm having a problem where, as I'm drawing the string my left eye seems to take over so it forced me to close my left eye. Although if I close my left eye and then open it again I'm still aiming with my right eye.

    String wax alternatives!

    Hi, I don't have any wax to lubricate my bowstring so I've been using coconut oil instead. Will that do the job or would wax be better? The coconut oil lubricates it well but it doesn't really get the strands to stick together. Is that important? Thanks

    Home made target!

    Hi, I'm wanting to make a home-made target and I have an idea for one. I'm thinking of stacking a bunch of catalogues and putting them in a box. The catalogues are hard backs though so I'm wondering if this might damage the arrows at all and if I should take the hard backing off. Here's a...

    Barebow - instinctive shooting or aiming?

    Hi, I'm shooting barebow and I'm having trouble when it comes to aiming. I find a system that seems to work for a couple of ends and then stops working for some reason. Can people comment on how they aim, what anchor points are use and and any aiming markers such as having the arrow tip at a...
