    outfitter recommendations

    I have a friend that asked me yesterday, a little late in the game I know, about an outfitted hunt for him, his dad, and his nephew. This would be a rifle hunt, his dad is older and they are not in the greatest shape so that is a factor, and they'd like nice cabin/accommodations, they are open...

    Arrow spine software says “too stiff.”

    Justin, I find the same thing, with my prime I shoot the same 4mm fmj .330 as you with 175 up front and they are way more forgiving and group tighter than .300’s this year I am shooting an rx4 ultra, I just got 80 pound limbs for it, 29” draw. I’ll be in the same boat as you trying to find the...

    ABB Platinum or GAS Ghost

    I love the gas ghost xv strings, they’ve been very stable for me. a friend of mine shoots abb platinums on his 80# Hoyt and they’ve also been super stable. gas gets my vote, both companies offer a military discount as well...

    Vise question (home setup)

    I like to use multiple levels to ensure the bow is plumb in the vise. I start with a string level, check with a large level spanning both limbs at the pockets, and then depending on the riser/shelf, I’ll use smaller bubble levels to check there as well...

    drop away rest recommendations

    I prefer limb driven rests and I shoot hamskea, I like the hybrid hunter more than the trinity, for the weight and bulk reasons. AAE makes good affordable rests, if I were in your shoes and not wanting to spend a bunch of money, I would look there. The QAD ultra rest is very popular, but I...

    On a more serious note, why so many bright colours?

    The only thing color on my bow is my D loop so I can see it in low light, and my sight housing ring. I use bright pink vanes, only because that's the only color my eyes can pick up in flight.. Anything else is personal, in my opinion...

    Prime centergy shooters... or anyone who has tuned a ton of bows

    Most of them tune nock high. You can advance the top cam a bit if your OCD wants it to stay level (that’s what I do). the TRK cam likes a weaker spine, I’m at 29” and 71lbs, I shoot a .330 spine with 175 up front. I’ve played around with shafts from .260 to .350 and weaker spines tend to be...

    Do bow shops hate when you work on your own stuff?

    I’ve had a lot of the same experiences, and I also set up my own shop in my basement as a result. I encourage everyone to learn to DIY, but I also try to help bridge the gap a little. Everyone will become a better archery if they learn to do their own tech work, in my opinion!

    1a. You are waiting until you won’t be harassing winter animals and the legal shed season is in, and all the other “hikers” have already picked them up.

    Cutting shafts to the rest

    The rest is in a fixed position, all the steering comes from nock travel. I think Tim is saying that the more arrow you have in front of the rest, the further off of your aiming point you will be if your nock travel is not exactly perfect in line with your rest. The way that I see it though, is...
