  1. Hello: I use carbons for my target compound, but prefer Aluminum arrows for my recurves and longbows.

  2. Need wooden shafts. Make heavy hunting arrows out of whittled down 3/8 dowels. These are cheap and tough. They wont blow up if hit something hard. If you break a shaft? who cares.

  3. Been watching your videos for some time now…I'm at the point that I am almost a Split Vision Shooter.  Using GAP has helped me learn the "sight picture" for accurate shooting.  Thanks! Lou

  4. I shoot a samick journey riser with southwest archery limbs at 45# and I am thinking of moving to carbon arrows from wooden arrows whats the best way to determine what brands are best for take down recurves?

  5. Totally agree that you shouldn't go from arrow charts to get the correct spine. Wished I'd have seen this video 6 months ago – would have saved me a load of hassle.
    Also watched part 1 and 2 of your arrows and spine, great videos.
    Pity you live the other side of the pond, if you were just down the road, I think we'd be good buddies!

  6. Well what the fuck. Hate when these things happen lol. Things can't just be straight forward and consistent. Like with different companies and clothing/shoe/etc. sizes.

  7. I'm using a carbon Hoyt ignite. To 50 pounds. What kind of arrows. Would you advice me to use. ,, by the way congratulations I like your videos very much You are a teacher

  8. in the composite world there is nothing wrong with using fiberglass as a core ,that's what it looked like in that video .carbon is so cheep now there could an engineering reason for using it not a price .some fiberglass is more expensive than carbon and there are other products that could look fiberglass but aren't

  9. We know that a compound bow advocates for an arrow rest that does the best job that it can to keep the fletching clear of the bow to ensure accuracy… Now with a traditional bow can you show us how the feathers react to the bow that has a shelf or one that does not have a shelf.

  10. Having worked in sales, I well know never to trust anything a salesperson tells you or pretends to be showing you. At the very least it would be necessary to repeat the same test with one of the seller's arrows of identical length, circumference, mass and spine before we could begin to make any inferences about whether or not the carbon & fiberglass arrow was weaker or stronger than an all carbon arrow. About we can tell from this test, such as it was, is that that particular arrow withstood a pretty insane amount of force before breaking.

  11. Spine was the last thing I was thinking about when I got my Samick Sage with 35# limbs in November 2015. The arrows I bought on Amazon were described as good for 30-60# bows. The spine was .450 a bit too stiff but that is the way I tuned my bow and developed my form. Now I bought some Vforce arrows with a .600 spine and I hardly notice a difference. My groups are pie plate size at 20 yards. What I do notice is the Vforce arrows are lighter and faster and they penetrate further thru my cardboard targets and into the straw bales. I replaced the stock Dacron string with a Flemish Fast Flight right after I got the bow and have been tuning ever since. I like your videos and take your advice but at my age, 68, and my eyesight I never expect to get cake cup sized groups.

  12. I shoot a 42# R/D longbow (58"), cut almost to center. 9 strand 450+ padded loop string. Wouldn't a Gold Tip 600 be a little too stiff? I don't want to have to use a 200 Gr. broadhead just to get that perfect flight. What shaft would you suggest, as I want to hunt also. Great video's, keep'em coming..
