an endless loop string is what 95% of the strings on the market look like for recurves and compounds. a flemish twist is easily identifiable by two distinct bundles of threads twisted together. You generally cannot tell from a picture the difference between a fast flite ELS and a dacron ELS

On a top release claw like the excalibur there is no real difference. If you are shooting 3D or spots you get 1/64 of an inch more of line cutting ability and 22/64 is the current legal max for the WCSA standard. for hunting there is nothing I could think of If you shoot a H orton, (bottom claw) the...

Barnett Cables

Barnett advertises that its strings and cables are "synthetic" I suspect 16 strands of 450+ for the cables-anyone know? many of these makers won't tell people because they want owners to buy OEM cables but at the shop were I sometimes advise the archery staff, I saw a guy make dacron cables for a Re...

IBO RULES

I am setting up a phoenix for WCSA sport which mirrors the IBO as to poundage and Speed. WCSA specifically allows Stabilizers

I can tell you in TNC we shoot 12-13" 1714/1716/1814 with 200-250 grain points and that has been the case for years. Serious FOC. ONe of the top technical guys in the country was using 125 grain bullets at NFAA louisville (THE GUY who SHOULD BE THIRD-they screwed up the scores btw I was 5th not 4th)...
