Real difference in draw weight?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hi,
Im new to recurves and new to this forum. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how much difference in velocity (average) is there really between a 45# and a 50# recurve? Given the same model bow, same string and same weight arrows? In fact how much difference between a 45 and 55# bow for that matter.
If its only 10-20 fps I wonder if thats really worth the stress on my shoulders and joints.
Thanks, Grady

Working Up to Heavier Draw Weight

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hi, all. This is my first post on this forum. Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.

I am 58 years old and recently bought a second-hand bow after a 30-year layoff from archery. I used to shoot a 48# Bear Tigercat a lot and was pretty good at it. But I sold it about eight years ago after not using it for 20 years or so.

I now have a convenient place to shoot and just bought a second-hand bow and other equipment. After trying several bows in my local shop I realized that I was going to want to start off in the 25# range. I’d decided on a PSE Optima because I liked the feel and the ability to upgrade the limbs without buying a whole new bow. But…I then had an opportunity to buy a second-hand Optima at 35# at a price that would let me pick up the 25# limbs for a total investment of the price of a new bow with just one set of limbs.

This (finally) leads to my question. I immediately took the bow out to the range and was able to shoot it but it wasn’t comfortable. I could draw properly and anchor but couldn’t hold comfortably and was rushing my shots. But I could shoot it. I am interested in opinions on whether I’ll be able to work my way up to shooting the #35 pounder comfortably or whether I should invest the $ 90 for the lower strength limbs. I’ll probably only be able to shoot about three times per month.

Thanks again,

Larry

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Wouldnt ya know it, last summer i took the plunge and bought a new bow. I only bought it because i figured i would be doing more hunting in the next few years, and it would be worth it.
And wouldnt ya know it, I didnt draw a single tag here in NM this year.
Gonna be a while before the investment catches up!

Low weight & short draw arrows?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Does anyone have any recommends for arrows for a shorter draw (approx 27") from a 35lb (@28") longbow?
(for a clubmate)

I would like carbons with durability but have always struggled in the past getting a half decent tune with my wife who has a comparable set-up based on only really having Easton models available at the time. He is a novice but mustard keen! So it would best to find him some not too expensive.

Many thanks in advance

Marc

Restrung bow, draw weight decreased

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

My bow was made to shoot 70# and I got a custom string for it, but when I got it restrung and tested the draw, it had gone down to 55#. Do I need to get the string twisted more, limbs tightened, or what? I completely re did my set up with new strings, new arrows, new sight, and wanna get my stuff right before I waste countless hours trying to sight in a set up that’s not gonna work.

To do?

Spiral cam: correct position at full draw?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hi everyone, I’m sure this info is out there somewhere, but I couldn’t turn anything up.

I’m particularly interested in seeing pictures of how far into the draw stop your top cam is when the bottom is just touching the cable stop – I know JAVI’s guide suggests the cable should lie flat in the groove, but as the flat section is slightly curved I’m not sure when is best for it to stop.

Does anyone have any pictures of their cam at full draw after tuning (particularly if it’s been creep tuned)? I ask because I’m somewhat limited in terms of the tuning I’m able to do… creep tuning would involve going to the range, then coming back home to make adjustments, etc, so it is a slow process and I’d like to get as close as I can, first!

Here is where I have it at the moment:

Please comment and/or post relevant pictures 🙂
