    [OTHER] Choice of two bows ... Osprey or Cobra ?

    Looking to buy another traditional bow for a bit of fun and I think I've narrowed it down to two .... So ... KG Osprey or Timber Creek Cobra. Both roughly the same price and recurve. I shot an Osprey a few weeks ago and thought it was very nice indeed, but I've not seen much on the Cobra apart...

    Awesome new training bows.

    Has anyone else seen these? Being able to add all your usual sights and stabilisers to it so it feels just like your real bow. These would be great to use when you just can't get any shooting done due to location or weather. Pretty much the cost of a real bow though...

    Oh Jin Hyek ... did he forget to sign his score ?

    I've just seen him relegated from about 5th down to last place (58th) and his second round has been removed and given a 0. I wonder what happened ? Recurve Men [After 72 Arrows]

    Just been browsing around the various archery shop websites to see what's new, and really liked the look of the new TimberCreek range of bows at a certain shop named after a Wizard. ;) Does anyone know who makes them, for them ?

    Errr! What?!

    I had a quick blast down the club this morning, wind was pretty strong so just stuck up a target at 30m and ploughed on. On the last end I thought for a laugh I'd throw down my 7 indoor FatBoys to see how far they'd drift ..... I was amazed that they went that much higher than my Carbon Ones...

    W&W making "Formula" limbs ...

    A couple of interesting little bits of information gleaned from the Japanese blog ... The new SF Velocity limbs are apparently very similar in construction to the older (last years) W&W INNO EX Power limbs. No idea on the price of these yet but that can only be a good thing with the high tech...

    New World records ..

    Best book ?

    Can anyone recommend a good book on the tips, techniques and secrets of shooting a compound, preferably one that covers stuff from a professional point of view and not just a general book? There's plenty out there but I'd like some personal experience and is better (and cheaper) than taking...

    World Archery > NEWS > News I wish GB had a coach like this ... oh wait ... :blush: The Colombian squad had a month-long training camp in Mexico City to prepare for the Rosario event. It was far enough way from the athletes? home in South America to give absolute privacy, concentrate only on...

    Ion-X tiller.

    A clubmate asked me to check his tiller on his bow last week (Ion-X with 44lb Quattro limbs) as he was sure it was wrong. It's a 27" riser with long limbs so 72" over all. The bottom tiller was 8mm more than the top. Something like 18.4cm to 19.2cm. Now I was of the opinion that it's usually...

    With thanks to Chris and x1440 at archerytalk, here is the new MK riser .... And it's probably going to be a bit of a game changer as it accepts both ILF and Formula limbs! :eye-poppi
