Overbowed beginner – limb recommendations? #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hi,

I’m new to archery and also this forum. I did an archery taster session with my daughter in January and then signed up to a six week beginners course at a local club here in the uk – both with my daughter. We were three weeks into the course when (Covid-19) lockdown commenced and the course is on hold.

Having been bitten by the archery bug I recently purchased some used kit from a colleague. I went expecting a basic wooden recurve takedown bow and came back the proud owner of what I’ve since found out is a Hoyt TD4/GM – the wooden takedown turned out to be left handed and therefore no good for me.

I’m loving the Hoyt. The power and performance difference between this and the club bow I used is mind blowing and my first shots bought a massive grin to my face. The limbs are Hoyt CRX short with 38lb draw weight. I would not have picked this high a draw weight given the choice. I was clearly overbowed (and still am, but less so), but have been short of cash to upgrade the limbs that came with the bow. Having trained carefully over the past two weeks to build my strength whilst trying to avoid developing bad habits, I can now shoot 30-60 arrows reasonably comfortably hitting mainly reds with around 1 in 5 golds – 40cm target face at 12 metres.

My current dilemma is, do I continue using the CRX limbs? Or look to replace (with a lower draw weight) when I have enough cash?

I’m struggling to find information about the CRX limbs and would like to explore a comparable alternative. These are ILF limbs. Any suggestions on a currently available alternative with similar performance?

Being budget conscious, SF Axiom + seem to be highly recommended here on this forum, but are no longer commercially available. Any current recommendations for a low cost ILF limb? And if I go for a budget limb, are Dacron strings recommend?

Best Long Draw bow for beginner #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I was hoping to make some connections with other long draw compound bow hunters on here. I am 6’6" and need a bow with a 32.5" draw. Can anyone out there with similar size give me a couple of suggestions? I don’t mind buying a used bow to get started with.

Thanks,
Juniata89

Good higher-end bow for an adult beginner..

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hey there guys and gals of AT! Im new to the site and to bow hunting/shooting. Ive always wanted to get into it, but never really pursued it. I am looking for a little info on things I NEED vs Want in a new/slightly used bow. I have shot a hand full, Carbon Knight, Faktor, Ballistic and a few others. As of now im pretty sold on the Ballistic. Its a package deal from a pro shop that includes the warranty for 649. It feels good, great draw. I guess what im asking is a 2 part question: 1st, package deals vs bare bow. I love the Ballistic, but I can already tell I will want to replace the rest and stabilizer right away, then the sight before hunting season. Would it be a better value to buy a bare bow and put everything on it? It would end up costing just a bit more it seems and I really dont wanna wait to shoot…ITS TOO FUN. 2nd question is performance based. Im testing all the bows @ 60#’s, which feels good. It gives me a great base to compare all the bows I shoot without wearing myself out. Unfortunately, I think it takes away from the speed, which I dont know how important it is, and distance…i think. I would like to be able to shoot in competitions when I cant hunt so I would like to know what performance specs I need to have to be competitive (i know a lot is due to practice), as well as accurate when I hunt. Like I said, im new to bows and these may be silly questions, but any and all info on brands to stick with or avoid would be great. Thanks in advance!

New beginner Questions

My wife and I bought new bows and have been shooting in our garage.

What is Brace Height and how do you measure it?

My wife bought a Sage 58" 25# I bought a PSE Classic 64" 45#

I ordered a Wes Wallace Mentor 66" 50#………….

Will there be a noticeable difference, in shooting and performance, between the Wes Wallace and the PSE? If so what will be the difference?

What is a Good Practice Regimen for a Beginner?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Folks,

I am looking for a some input on what constitutes a good practice regimen. I am relatively new to archery, having not shot a bow in 40 years until the last month or so. Unfortunately I am not able to practice in my yard. The archery range is an indoor range about 20 minutes from my house. I am taking lessons from the owner.

I can’t shoot every day, but try to practice twice a week. I am pretty much a recreational archer who just wants to be as good as I can be while enjoying the sport.

I am interested in your thoughts on an efficient practice session including thoughts on stretching, warm-up, shooting distances (range max is 20 yards), practice objectives, how long a practice session should be, how many arrows to shoot in total, etc.

The only thing I can compare this to in my experience is golf. For example, I have a routine that starts with stretching, then warm-up focusing on tempo, followed by wedges, progressing through longer irons, and lastly the driver. I will often finish by playing a few imaginary holes where I hit driver, then an iron to specific target on the range . Would something similar be beneficial in an archery practice session – maybe shoot at 10 yards, then 15, and finally 20 yards? Maybe finish with some type of competition?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Wanting to get into traditional archery and looking to get a bow soon. I was thinking of a Samick Journey. I shoot a 30" draw on my compound and have read that the Journey is more for longer draws than the Sage. There is a shop in driving distance that has these in package deals that have some of the extras. My plan is to go try to shoot one there and go with the package. I think it comes with a finger glove, quiver, and maybe some arrows I’m not sure for around $ 170. Does this sound like a good start? or should I be looking at better quality used bows? I also have no clue what draw weight to get. I know they have replaceable limbs on these and that will help. I shoot 74lbs now on my compound so I think I would be able to shoot 40-50#s from the start but I could be wrong. I plan to eventually hunt with this bow as well. Any info would help thanks.

Any tips for a Deaf beginner?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I’m just getting back into archery after having taken 15+ years off from it. I shot a simple 40# recurve bow from about age 9 to 17 and by the end could bullseye easily and had tight groupings nearly every time. Now it’s like I never picked up a bow in my life – after 20 years off and 13 years of health problems I am having to start completely over with a 20# bow, and my aiming is a joke. Oh well, it’s still fun anyway.

Unfortunately there’s no real adult archery clubs in my area that are accessible to me and I’ve not had any luck finding coaches, but I’ve been lucky enough to find an SCA group that has weekly archery practice. Needless to say the people there are wonderful and helpful, but I don’t know if any of them really qualify as actual coaches, and I don’t think they pay that close attention to me to tell me if I am doing something wrong. So I’m trying to research things online and learn as I go, hoping that muscle memory will still kick in after this long and I will get better.

However I’m also Deaf, and while it never stopped me as a kid/teen, I also never did it in a group. I always always shooting solo and learned from an adult in my life that was an expert at traditional/primitive bows. Naturally, I can’t remember anything he said now. I just remember that I was mostly an instinctive shooter back then and that’s about it.

So I’m wondering if there’s anything I need to be aware of as a Deaf archer, both in my personal technique while solo shooting and in groups. Is there anything technique-wise that requires hearing that I may need to compensate for? When I was a kid it wasn’t a big deal, but I’d like to get serious with archery again so maybe that changes things. I don’t really see how hearing is really necessary other than if I were to hunt someday, knowing if my bow is too loud – I don’t anticipate hunting though.

I know that it does help to hear the "thunk" on a target when figuring out one’s technique and fine tuning it, and I find myself a bit frustrated that I don’t have this "check", especially since I seem to still be an instinctive shooter. Even more frustrating is that in a group practice, I can’t see where my arrow went or if I even hit the target at all until time to go retrieve the arrows (since the arrows in the target could be anyone else’s and not mine, it’s hard to tell from a distance). So it’s really hard to self correct. Unfortunately, I no longer have a place I can safely solo-practice, so I’m kinda stuck with the group practice for now.

I’m nervous about the group archery practice aspect, but I do have my significant other practicing with me and he’s more than willing to stay by my side and let me know when the retrieval call is sounded and the emergency stop is sounded and all of that. And should I ever have to attend practice without him I plan to be especially observant or perhaps ask a fellow archer if they would be willing to hit me on the arm during an emergency stop call, but it still makes me nervous and wonder if I should just sit it out when my SO can’t come with me, which honestly would suck. But safety is more important. Especially since there are sometimes kids on the range. I would just like to see if I can’t figure out a way to compensate for the lack of hearing on my own without needing a "hearing alert human" at my side, lol.

Anyway, I guess I was just hoping I could share some concerns rolling around in my head with this seemingly active forum of archers and see if anyone had any great ideas or responses I hadn’t thought of. Thanks. 😀
