Shopping for a new bow where target bows are rare…

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hello all,
First post and hoping for some insight. Ive been doing Barebow recurve on a Sage for months, and hoping to invest in a more serious compound setup.Most people will say go down to your proshops and shoot, but there’s not many options for. The stores that are within my area only carry middle range hunting bows, and I have my eye on a higher end target bow like the Supra or Deliminator. The stores will order them in for me, but it’s not like I can just pass on the bow if I don’t like it, or that I"ll be able to compare bows . How do others in my situation shop? I’m also left handed and Canadian, so buying bows is even harder, 2nd hand seems impossible.

Also, anyone have any tips for going recurve to compound?

Thanks

Can’t draw bows when switching from Fingers to Mechanical at all.

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I’ve been practicing archery for most of my life, starting when I was, oh, I’d say ’bout five years old, when my uncle let me pick up a bow and found out I could draw it and hit a target instinctively. To say I’ve had a talent for archery is stretching it, but, I’m mostly self-taught, but, fairly proficient in the sport/art, still, even though I stopped shooting for 14 years, seeing as archery became too cost-prohibitive as I got into stronger and stronger bows. However, three years ago, I was re-introduced to archery when a friend bought me a Martin Lynx compound bow(#38-#65 draw, with a 29"), for my 19th birthday. I was hesitant with shooting a compound bow, as, I’m a die-hard Recurve and Long fan, and, I spent a good amount of my teenage years as an amateur boyer, making pretty decent bows before I would just throw, or give, away out of boredom and a lack of arrows, but, starting this year, I made a resolution to get into archery, and, since I have a hunting bow, fulfill one of my dreams of bow-hunting.
I’ve been shooting for my entire life, no matter how many times I’ve picked up a bow, always with finger-release. I do the ‘Legolas two-finger’ hold, with one above, and one below, the arrow nock, and, I’ve never had problems until this bow. I just had to adapt to a 3-finger under approach, and re-learn how to anchor and suddenly I went from shooting ones and fives, to shooting tens and twenties on ends of about 4-5 arrows(I use my own targets; in a nutshell, I went from 8" groups down to about the size of a baseball) at my practice distance of 20 yards. However, the different feel of the string from the compound versus a more ‘traditional’ bow brought to my attention that I have old nerve damage in my fingers, so, I recently bought a release. I do mean recently…I am writing this post not even 3 hours after purchasing the release, because I have absolutely no idea what to do.

My Martin bow is set down to roughly #45, seeing as anything higher than 50 and I’m overbowed due to my 14 year lapse of activity in the sport, and I am physically unable to draw my bow at all. I am not even kidding, I’ve searched and found one person who couldn’t draw on another website to his chin, but, he had a length problem. The length of my bow’s draw was just adjusted 1.5" down to support a possible decision to get a release, which I was told for my arm would be more than sufficient, almost regardless of what mechanism I purchased. So, I went out and bought a TruFire Hurricane Extreme Buckle mechanical release. Put the D-loop on no problem, made it a double turn for some added security with it(didn’t trust the minimum to hold.), nocked an arrow, plugged in, and tugged. And tugged. And tugged, wincing in pain the entire time.

I lowered the draw weight down as far as I could go, about #38, gave it another go, with the exact same result. When I switched to finger release, with my glove, I was able to draw it back, no problem at all, even up to the full #60 for my Martin, albeit highly overbowed and wobbling like crazy. Tried a similar length bow at #25 with the release, and the same excruciating pain in my shoulder appeared, and, I was unable to draw the bow back even an inch. It was as if I was trying to draw the release back, with it attached to a nail embedded in concrete. The string. Barely. Moved. What in the heck is going on here? Why can I draw like a pro with my fingers, but, suddenly, my bowstring is attached to Mjolnir(Thor’s Hammer) when I put the release on? I know it isn’t my bow, because somebody who’s been doing this a while was able to draw my bow no problem, so, I know it has to be me. I really need to know what’s going on, here, and how to fix it, because this is the most discouraging thing I’ve ever experienced in my life.
For anybody offering help, please, I cannot stress enough that I am on an extremely tight budget. Suggesting I purchase a bunch of bells and whistles is useless information, I need advice that will help me deal with this problem for real, using what I’ve got. I’ve spent 200 bucks on this bow, so far, just to get to this point and start failing. This isn’t an equipment problem, it’s a user malfunction, so, how do we fix the user?

Why no more Max4 camo on production bows?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Always thought that was the most awesome camo pattern ever on a bow. I know BowTech offered it for a couple of years. Now seems to have vanished from all production bows?

If it’s out there being used I sure don’t see it anymore.

Anyone know what happened to it?

Low KE bows

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Who hunts with light tackle bows? I have 2 rigs and one is certainly light. My HCA x10 is set at 50 pounds with a 28.5 DL and is at what i feel would be the high end of low KE at 49 lbs. Now I know that stingers will work fine. Pretty certain Tricks and low profile heads would also get the job done inside 30 on whitetails just fine. I am just looking to see what you other light wts have used and what succes yall have had.

My first light bow was a PSE Brute set at 49lbs slinging 600 grains of aluminum and Mag II broadheads. It worked and very well. Every shot out to 35 was a pass thru but then again Iwas shooting a trad like arrow.

Looking for info on “American Archery” company and their bows.

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I recently picked up a compound bow from an antique mall in Wisconsin for a whopping $ 98. Said to my self: Well, hell, can’t beat that for a compound bow. So i picked it up as well as a one piece recurve bow which had ZERO markings on it and when i had someone try to put a string on it, he said it was mis-shaped and has to be re-bent. It says on the compound bow, that it was made by "American Archery", being based in Oconto Falls, Wisconsin. I will post pics of all the markings on it but I just need more information on it. Now, I searched high and low on the internet and all i could find on this company was a thread on this site which barely told me anything useful, and some ebay posts of people that sold the same model of bow. Just googling the bow model or company brings up nothing useful. I am wondering if this bow is worth anything, as well the history of the company as extensive as you can give me and how old this bow might be. Thanks in advanced for any help.

Link to my blog where i have the pics since this site won’t let me put them up: http://paladinblades.blogspot.com/

Custom Bows

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I like the Timber Hawk bows and have email Scott.

For those who have experience with his bows whats your opinions.

I also like Wes Wallace bows…………………….. .Is there a lot of difference from one Custom bow to the next , I would guess that some are better than theres.

What does it mean when they say that a bow is really smooth?

Do most Custom builders build bows that reach your desired poundage at your draw length or do some Custom builders build the weight of pull at 28" Like Bob Lee bows.

In all due respects, the beauty of a Wes Wallace with all the options on Riser wood and limbs at $ 855 So far it appears to be one heck of a Deal. Bob Lee bows are more expensive and from what I have read from other archers who shoot Wes Wallace bows they are one of the Best………………..

Opinions are appreciated

I priced out a 66" Wes Wallace with a Riser made of half Cocobolo and Mertelwood with Banboo limbs and Mertlewood veneers at a little over $ 800 It was beautiful he had one pictured on his web sight……………. I don’t think I have ever read where someone did not like the Wes Wallace bows. Timber Hawk bows are beautiful also but I believe are more expensive.
