Target bow accessory recommendations for a newbie? #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

hi all!

I’m going to be taking the target archery journey with my 9 year old daughter as of this weekend… :)

I’m pretty sure I’m getting her a bow package such as the Diamond Infinite Edge PRO. For myself, I plan on getting a used recent-model target bow…which is usually sold bare. I’m going to test a few bow makes/models out this weekend so see what my exact draw length is going to end up being (I’m 6’4", 75" wingspan) and then will move pretty quickly into a used bow so that we can shoot during my kid’s Summer vacation, at least a few times per week. Once my bow choice is made, I’ll need to get all the accessories to make the bow complete: release, rest, sight, and stabilizers. What’s a solid arrow that also doesn’t break the bank? I know that these items can be a deep (and expensive) rabbit hole but I also recognize that as my bow tastes may change these accessories may also be traveling with me from bow to bow…so I want to buy good reasonably-priced items without breaking the bank and doubling the cost of the bow. I’m currently planning on looking at acquiring one of the following bows: PSE Evolve 35, Hoyt Podium X 40 or Vantage, Fanatic, or maybe a Halon X…something with a 35+" ATA, for sure.

What are your favorite picks for these items for target/3D shooting? Assume I don’t have an AmEx Black card lol ;)

Newbie: Bohning Blazer or X Vanes Shield Cut for indoor target shooting?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Even something as simple as a vane has innumerable choices, which as a newbie, makes it difficult to make a decision, so I’m looking for your assistance.

My usage will be for indoor target shooting at 20 yards. (I prefer to shoot at the NFAA five spot target.) Occasionally I will shoot an outdoor 3D course.

I’ve narrowed it down to Bohning’s Blazer or X Vanes Shield Cut.

According to the website, the Blazer is "designed for fixed blade broad heads, but great for crossbows and 3D archery." Also: "We recommend fletching the Blazer® vanes helically for perfect results."

Whereas the X Vanes Shield Cut is "designed for target archery." However there was no mention of recommended fletching. And there is no indication of which of the three profiles I should choose (1.5” Shield Cut, 1.75” Shield Cut, and 2.25” Shield Cut) :confused:

I thought the Blazers would be a good choice because practically every archer at the range appears to be using it. However according to the website the X Vanes Shield Cut appears to be more suited to my usage.

Bow is compound, DW is 40-to-50#. Arrow is Gold Tip, carbon, 0.003, cut to 27" — I don’t have its other specs at this time. Arrows will have a 85 grain target point, and pointed nocks.

ETA: I doubt I will notice the difference regardless of which one I choose. I’m asking more for the thought process behind choosing a vane.

Newbie wanting to upgrade gear

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Im just starting out with Archery, and my wife bought me some gear on Craigslist to get me going.

The sights are old and worn out, but the guy at Dicks tells me the mount on the bow is so old that i couldn’t attach a new sight or quiver as my bow wouldn’t support it.

I have posted pictures, anyone know if there is an adapter plate available that i could get so i can fix a new sight?

Thanks!!!!photo.jpgphoto1.jpg

Another Newbie Saying Hi.

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Howdy everyone. New archer here looking to get started up traditional. I figure best learn the old ways so that if I do move on to Compounds I’d be better off. I don’t have a bow of my own yet, I’m looking at either a Bear Montana longbow or a Martin X-200 Recurve. From what I’ve read on this sight I think I’d be best served with either a 40 or 45# bow regardless of design. I come to that conclusion from drawing my father’s 60# compound. I’d like to hear from some more knowledgeable people before I spend the money on a bow on what they would suggest as a good starting point. Longbow or Recurve, 40 or 45#. I’d like to be able to hunt with it eventually and I don’t have the funding to buy multiple bows. So what would be my best "bang for my buck". I’m also open to other suggestions as well.

Newbie questions about recurve arrow selection…

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I made my first post in general, then I realized there is not only a traditional forum but also a noob forum. I’d been awake all night trying to wrap my head around gear selection, haha. Anyway I posted this there but didn’t get any help, hopefully I’m in the right spot now.

Initially I was planning on getting any old arrows for this PSE Snake I had ordered, then stumbled upon a thread from here that made me lean forward and choke myself for thinking something so ridiculous. :p

So I did a fair amount of reading, here and on other archery forums. I HAD ordered a PSE Snake 22lb recurve with a dynaflight bowstring, but then I got lost on the arrow shaft selector xpert program so I canceled the order until I could figure out what to submit for a proper MTO order.

I did the wrist-to-shirt-button measurement (right on the dot at 28") and downloaded the shaft selector xpert program, which I have been playing around with for the past hour, check, the past morning, just got in about 3 hrs worth of z’s now back at it lol

Since I have a 28" draw length, what sorts of arrows or (arrow lengths in general) should I be using with this bow? I am prepared to call Lancaster to resubmit my order as soon as I can fully understand what’s going on in terms of the arrow selector program.

I punched in the data for the PSE bow and my draw length, went over to spine selector, but noticed that the field for arrow shaft length is user editable. The program doesn’t recommend arrow lengths based on my draw length?

I am pretty dead-set on aluminum shafts after seeing the terrific injuries some people have done themselves with CF shafts. Since I’m primarily interested in punching holes in paper, should I just stick with the bullet-style tips? Is there only one grain-weight of bullet tip for each arrow shaft size (seems that way on Lancaster)?

I appreciate any advice y’all can give and I plan on picking your brains a lot as I get set up here!

Newbie Arrow Question

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Hey folks, first post and I’d like to start by saying you all are a great bunch- for being a complete newcomer to the sport I feel like I’ve been able to gain a fair amount of knowledge simply from rummaging through old and new threads.

I’ve been out shooting just a couple times with some friends that are also newcomers, and have picked up a 45# Sage TD bow to start out with. Really the only remaining piece of gear I need to pick up is the arrows, but these more than anything else Im having trouble understanding- it seems like there’s quite a lot you can change on an arrow that will alter its performance… too many variables for me to keep straight at this point I suppose.

I’ve shot carbons in various lengths and weights, and some aluminum a that were a bit longer than any of the carbons, and the aluminum Easton arrows always seemed to fly a good deal straighter for me. After some research, it seems the Easton XX75 is a popular selection, but I really don’t have much idea on weight, length, etc. I’ll only be target shooting for the foreseeable future, with field tips (though it sounds like these can also have different weights?)… and I guess Im just curious if this is a decent arrow for a beginner, and if there are any opinions on what weight, length, etc. I should be looking for.

Thanks a bunch
