I share your sentiments regarding this forum.
I missed the ruckus and the banning, I think I was concentrating on my competitions and when I came back it was all over.
I have watched, and participated in a couple of threads that seemed to highlight some technical issues with bows. In one case it struck me that an unfortunate purchase had been made that was nothing to do with Martin, other than it's products were involved. In the other thread, I thought I was observing some rather obsessive behaviour and expectations. After all, if a bow is hitting the mark reliably, then the fact it is slightly off from factory spec is neither here nor there. I started shooting compounds at a time when all manner of 'tweaks' were applied to get bows into a state of 'super tune'. You only have to read the first edition of Larry Wise's compound tuning book to see what we used to get up to. Factory spec was, and is, just the starting point and maybe the reference you can return to if things really get out of whack.
I think a little time is needed for the dust to settle, and as an outside observer, also the buck fever needs to subside a little, before things can get back (at least in part) to where they were before, and I look forward to future exchanges of technical information, help, jokes and the rest.
