Getting from sticks to the stand? #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

So when I was younger and wirey I had no issue setting sticks or steps as high as I could then hugging the tree to get into the stand which I placed above my last stick. Now that I’m older and wiser and don’t bounce like I used to, I always want a good handhold or two to get into my stand. There are some trees where I want to be as high as I can be and don’t want to carry an extra stick. Anyone come up with something different to help get into the stand?

I use lifelines so was thinking about maybe some kind of aider tied to the prusik knot or on the beaner.

I tried to us a [spoiler] code to hide this image unless clicked on cuz I don’t know the rules about possible graphic images, but didn’t work. also I photoshopped it a bit to pop the colors.

Where to begin…

Really, I just want to understand what happened. I can’t stop anyone from giving me a lecture on me being a dumbass, but not necessary, already know that.

So I’m home pulling back my Diamond Edge SB-1 and the string(buss cable) on the top cam slips under the draw stop. When I go to let down the string, there’s a major stall, slack, then the tension kicks in and the stop slips out and the string is let down. Weird, kinda scary, no incident.

I take a look in the vice and notice there was a much larger gap between the buss string and the cam on the top. I “fixed” this by sliding out the cable slide and putting it in the opposite way. The slide has a shorter and longer protruding point so putting the buss strings back in placed each string near flush to both cams, allowing the stop to perform as it should.

Now you’re probably thinking, “wat da hell kid, you’re outta your league take it to the tech!” And you’re right. On the schedule.

So I’m at Academy and decide to take a look at their SB-1 and just look how it’s supposed to be set up. I draw back and……THE EXACT THING HAPPENS.

Except this time letting down the string does not release the buss cable tension, the draw stop has LOCKED in there. holding a bomb.

Don’t know about all Academy Sports but this one eliminated their archery tech/range (range is now storage).

So I’m in this weird situation, asking the girl “who knows what to do? is there a bow press.” “er uh gee Mr. we don’t have bow techs.” People start to gather, I have a guy hold the string tension with a safety release while I use a pair of thick pants folded three times to see if I can get that cable out of the stop (STUPID I KNOW). But doesn’t budge.

The string is off the cams so we take it off completely. And with the pants I push the top cam and….FWWACKKKK!!!!! ok, bomb defused, pants apparently got shifted and cam sliced an inch, pretty deep, cut.

Again, I am a dumbass, but in the moment, no one knew **** and my ego was saying, “ok it’s up to you batman!!” Idiot. Should have left if there, NOT my problem.

So a few things. In that situation, assuming a tech was around, what should have been done?

Also, on mine, is reversing the cable slide stupid?

Obviously this is a Dimond Edge SB-1 MAJOR defect. Plan on calling them.

I do think the incident at the store, the bow was several inches shorter than my draw length, plus much lighter poundage so I think I drew too strong/long and pulled that cable through the stop BUT regardless, that should not have happened.

Besides being pissed at myself, I was really pissed at Academy for being allowed let people TOUCH a bow without a certified bow tech present. Sell them? Ok. Maybe. But without a bow press, a tech, or hell, someone that knows ANYTHING about bows, letting someone draw a bow is insane, man. Amiright?

I don’t even know where this thread is going but maybe just some constructive thoughts. Or even lay into me. Probably deserve it.

But the hand is fine. day 2 doesn’t even hurt, the staff was friendly and patched me up enough for me to get home to my own kit. Butterflies, New Skin, etc.

My goal of becoming an Olympian. From depression to determination #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I had it all, money, women, travelling.

I was 18 yrs old when I decided I wanted to be rich, and that I did, I did not become a billionaire/millionaire, but for my age and in my country (Philippines), I can say that I am richer than most people my age. Money was everything to me, I wanted to become a billionaire. After that, I focused on getting women, that was a wild ride, I learned alot from it. Then I traveled, not around the world, just to a few countries.

I was at Korea that time. I was inside my hotel, I was crying, suicide was not a hard thing to do at that time. I felt that, I had it all, money, women, travelling, but why am I still unhappy? I was inside my room and I felt that there is nothing out there that would make things better.

I spent some weeks going through depression, staying in my room, playing video games, being unproductive. I felt that I needed to learn in life, so I decided I will travel again, I was booking my flight to vietnam, but fortunately, the bank was doing a maintenance, so I said "Okay I guess I will book next week".

So I planned to go out and experience things. I planned that tomorrow I will go to this archery range, the next day I will go to this shooting range, the other day I will go to this ocean park.

To make things short. I went to the range, and I loved it. I felt like, when I am aiming at the target, nothing else matters. So I decided to take beginner classes.

I was about 2-3 sessions in when I decided to take this seriously, I have wealthy parents, so I asked them if they can support me financially in this journey. They said no. At that time I was really scared, I am 20 years old and I dont know what to do in life, other than archery, my only other choice was joining the military. After crying that night, I decided that I will choose this journey, to be successful at this sport, to be an Olympian, and I will do whatever it takes to get there.

Today I am about to finish my beginner course, I will buy a bow tomorrow. Yesterday I joined my first competition, I have been training for less than 2 weeks and I was competing with people with ALOT of experience, they had their own bows, I competed with rented equipment.

I am continuing to work hard, focusing on work ethic, I aim to out work everyone, everyday , and that I will do until I reach my goal or until I die.

Fresh from the shop n the bow goes BOOM!! #archery

Hey gents, long time reader, first time question submitter.

I’ve got a question regarding what my expectations should be following a faulty restring/tune job done by a local shop that resulted in 2 bent cams, a broken arrow and who-knows what else.

I have a bowtech assasin that needed restrung so I took it to the local bow shop and in the process purchased a new drop away. I was told it would be restrung, timing would be dialed and it would be paper tuned. They re checked my draw length and sent me on my way.
When I picked it up, they hadn’t put a peep sight in yet, so they did that while I waited (first red flag it wasn’t tuned yet).
Today I shot the first arrow through it a kaboom! It sounded like a dry fire, the brand new arrow snapped just ahead of the fletching the the rest of the arrow shaft tumbled 5ft in front of me. Both cams are bent, but that’s all I can tell so far.
My question is: what should my expectations be for then to make this right? Should they treat it completely as a dry fire and recheck/measure every little piece? What should FOR SURE be replaced when this happens? Understandably things like this happen occasionally but I don’t want the shop to take advantage of me in the process of making it right. Any advice or tips are greatly appreciated!
Thanks!
