    Can you learn correct Grip from Paper tune?

    So I'm shooting a "perfect" spine according to the software. When I set center shot I get a left tear with bare shaft at 10'. So I started moving the rest to the right to correct the tear but then my center shot was way off to the right....I then thought about hand torque. I set center shot...

    3'x3' outdoor target recommendations?

    So I'm tired of buying a $125 block target and blowing out the center in a year! I want to invest in a larger target. Partly for my Long distance practice but also because I could have several aiming points in a large target....hence making it last 4x as long. i was looking at big shot...

    The "stan" method

    Anybody using the stan method for triggering the barrel? I shoot a shoot off and the method describes pulling into the stops, preloading your thumb on the barrel then once the sight picture is good to relax your index finger and .... Wham! Bow fires. Gonna play around with this method. I can...

    Going back to .19 pins

    Have a tommy hogg 5 pin slider with a hogg wrap and .10 pins. I shoot both eyes open and love the precision of the .10 pins but age is catching up to me. The fiber optic pin is tiny and has become a little blurry when focusing on the target and not the pins. Switched to .19 pins and I can see...

    Improved shooting with both eyes open

    So I just realized why my shooting has improved when shooting both eyes open. When I shot with one eye closed I would bring the pin on target and begin my pull.....but then I would subconsciously let the pin drift back off the target so I could see it again and then put the pin back on it. This...

    Breaking the epoxy bond

    Hey I want to cut down some of my arrows but already have a insert glued in with epoxy. I want to cut them where the insert is. Can I use a heat gun and break the bond of the epoxy to pull the inserts out? I do this all the time to change shafts on my golf driver. Anybody have experience with...
