    Indoor longbow

    Seems a bit off considering the mess c*mpounds make of bosses, we have several longbows shooting indoor 50# plus without any whinging

    First dozen arrows for my longbow

    And then there were 11 :oops: Yup old ham fist strikes again, a bit of a curve in one shaft and let’s just give it a tweak I thought. No prizes for guessing what happened next

    First dozen arrows for my longbow

    Thanks Karl Even recurve barebow I don’t sight down the arrow I prefer to rock it instinctive stylee, just seems to suit me better. The other theory with the longer length is part of my natural conservatism I can always take a bit off if needed rather than go for the rather dated stigmata look :-D

    Phooeys Tales From Astride The Line

    The little things

    Well finished the beginners course today which was great and big thanks again to NAC for making it a really good and fun learning experience. The personal achievement bit is I got to shoot one of the clubs longbows for a few ends, nailing mostly 9s and 10s. granted it was a 30lb bow at about 10...

    Another recurve/riser quandary

    Well nearly finished the beginners course and now started seriously pondering my first recurve set up. I started looking at some of the cheaper entry level bows that have changeable limbs for upping the poundage, but the misfiring grey matter is wondering about going a little further up the...

    Dilemma Choosing First Bow

    Evening all, right as I might have mentioned in my intro thread I'm new to archery, now only got to wait 2 more weeks for the beginners course to start (seems about a year since I booked it). thoughts have turned to the first bow purchase, rather than just drooling at the various websites.
