    Great explanation Elkslayer. I think you really made it understandable with the pics + description. The "Masters of the Barebow" video series also gives a great video demonstration of the method.

    A "syllabus for shooting" is a good way to put it. Write it down then commit it to muscle memory by constant repetition. Tournament archery is attitude first, form and consistency second, then...

    If you have difficulty shooting blank bale and not aiming, try blind bale shooting - same thing only with your eyes closed. The idea behind both methods is to take aiming out of the picture and...

    I think I saw a Howard Hill video where he shot a shark under water - he must have been using "pondage" :-)

    Off the cuff, if just thinking about the LV Open ruins your shot, you've got a lot of work to do and probably should set your sights a little lower until you get some tournament experience. Along...

    Everyone is a little different so what works for you will not be the same as everyone else. With my compounds, I shot 47 lbs indoors, 67 lbs outdoors, and hunted with 57 lbs, all quite comfortably....

    If price is an issue and you are a little uncertain about DW, you really won't go wrong with the Jaguar (or even a Saber) you're considering for your son. With a TD you can have extra limbs ($75/pr)...

    You will gain 1 to 1.5 lbs of bow weight for each inch over the stated weight of the bow @28". For your 30" draw length, figure +2 to +3 lbs. Longer bows may gain slightly less due to the longer...

    3 Rivers has the Das Daala and Lancaster has the Trad Tech Titan. Both have CNC machined aluminum risers. I'm partial to the Trad Tech because they are 100% American made.

    For a right-handed archer shooting a shaft too stiff usually makes the arrow go to the left. If you feel your shafts might be too stiff for your weight and they are still going right, I would think...

    Ditto ElkSlayer's comments. Compounds and longbows are different animals. I don't think DL and DW are related except when you purchase a longbow, the weight marked on the bow will be lower due to...

    Yes, I think I did write a review for 3R's. As I remember I also mentioned difficulty with the cord clamp hitting my arm and also what you mentioned about needing a quick disconnect for easy-on,...

    It really depends on your draw length and / or the length you cut the arrows. I shoot 2117's out of mine. A 2115 may work as well. Consult the Easton charts for either hunting or target depending on...

    I never liked that the barrel nuts would fall out on mine. I assembled my bow and dripped candle wax into the nuts and filled them flush with the riser. If you ever want to take them out, you can...

    I still shoot Bear Razorheads - and they're still reasonably priced. At least they were. I see they are not sold (new) anymore. I can't believe Bear would retire such a good head.
