Elevated/flipper rest and instinctive shooting?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I’m currently in the process of getting back into archery after a number of years away from the sport. I will be shooting recurve and primarily Field, target and a bit of 3D.

Back in the day I shot mainly longbows and only instinctive. I wan’t to stay with instinctive, which (for me at least) means I will have to cant the bow to keep both eyes on the target.
Being new to recurves I know very little about arrow rests and such. As I understand it an elevated rest or a flipper rest allows for the use of plastic vanes rather than just feathers (please correct me if I’m wrong). While I’m not a huge fan of vanes aesthetically, the do seem to be a good choice in terms of durability and water resistance (I live in Scandinavia and it rains A LOT).

Will an elevated rest work properly with the bow canted? If so is there any that are better suited for this?
After quite a bit of consideration, I have decided to get either a Samick Sage or Polaris. It seems like the shelf on these is not cut very far beyond centre. Would this cause the common stick on rests to be placed to far to the left? Would something like the Cartel CR-201 or CR-301 be a better choice? They seem to place the arrow closer to centre.

Finally, would a plunger be a useful addition to any of these options?

A lot of noob questions I know, but I wan’t to get it right in as few tries as possible. And it’s better to learn from others’ knowledge than your own mistakes.

instinctive shooting at distance

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Looking for some advice from instinctive shooters on how to shoot at 80 yards.
I normally shoot 60Y max and the other day I tried 80Y and found when I looked at the target, taking it all in, when i then lifted my bow the height of my arm was such that I completely lost sight of the target so had no focus point due to my arm and hand blocking my view, yet I needed the height to reach the target. ( was shooting 45# bow )
Any advice on how to shoot such a distance???? by the way got it in the lower leg, but that was just luck. Thanks

Questions for IBO longbow shooting

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Well…after a long agonizing not 100% sure of what the heck I was doing. ..I finally took the leap..and jumped at a early vacated much coveted spot on the list for a new triple carbon longbow from Centaur. .Thank You Jim…

Now..I know it is not a d shaped bow…and I am primarily a carbon arrow shooter…but I do want to go to some of the shoots this coming year..like down at the Trad Worlds and some of the regional shoots….maybe others..time & money depending. .

So..where does this combination fit into the various classes? I know it’s not the traditional class. .but I am unsure what distances and types of bows I’ll be competing with. .

Since I am going to be hunting with this rig as well…..it’s not a target weight bow . While certainly easier to use some type of formal aiming method. …I’ll be shooting this in a swing draw instinctive fashion as I am acustomed to.

How many targets for IBO shoots can I expect to shoot at, and the distances I can expect, along with the animal types.

It’s been years since I have shot in any type of formal matches and I know from reading here things have changed considerably since then.

If I do decide to shoot woodies…I’m looking at Forrester arrows..they seem to have a great following for pre made and durable shafts for this endeavor. .so other recommendations are appreciated too..

My Earl Hoyt Hunter Supreme is getting dusted off to help prepare the old muscles for the weight…I got a couple months till it’s done to prepare. .so ..what can I expect to encounter..

I just wasn’t happy inside with the ILF kit if anyone was interested…as nice as it was…as good as everything was about it for fit finish quality and shootability…i just wasnt hapoy..funny how that works. ..

Thanks guys

Mac

Women Shooting Prime Impact?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I was talking to one of our regular FITA shooters last night and she wants to jump to a compound. She had to stop shooting for a while and is ready to get back into it.

She wants one bow to shoot indoors and outdoors. She is a tall, 5′ 11" or so, physically fit woman. No need for a "girls bow" for her. She shoots 35lbs on her recurves.

We were talking and she really kind of liked the Prime Impact. 50lb limbs can be had for that setup so I don’t see weight being a problem.

Anyone know a woman shooting a Prime? Which one?

Just thinking here…..

Is Anyone Out There Shooting G5 Quest Bows ?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

We are looking for a bow for my wife and cant find hardly anything on the Quest Bliss. It looks like a pretty descent bow with good specs but can only find very little about the bow as far as reviews or anything. No dealer has one in to shoot so I was wondering if anyone has shot or has a wife that shot the Bliss so I can get there thoughts about it. My wife shot a Mission craze and said its ok,shot a Mission Menace and said its ok. Going to try a Flare and Riot tonight but would like to get some opinions on the Bliss. Thanks.
Tank.

Thumb ring inspired, two-finger shooting tabs.

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Hi Folks,

I’m still pretty new to traditional archery. Never got into modern actually. I have a 50# at 28" Sky recurve. It was a challenge at first, but that’s what makes it fun.

I shoot split finger and have always used a tab or glove. When I learned about thumb rings I made one and tried it out. I liked it but I couldn’t shoot accurately, probably since the rest is on the inside.

So I made this shooting tab that I slip on my middle finger like a ring. It’s plastic and has some flex to it. I have been having so much fun with it I had to post it up here.

I scoured the internet to see if it’s been done before but it seems this might be original, aside from the fact it’s really just a modified thumb ring that goes on your middle finger.

I shoot middle finger under, index finger over, and made the following conclusions after weeks, and hundreds of arrows, alternating between gloves and tabs.

  • Total finger protection.
  • Zero discomfort. I could shoot all day long.
  • Consistent and fast releases. The string seems to slide off the slick surface with zero twist, but I have never once felt it might get away from me.
  • Simple, cheap, and non-intrusive. You forget you have it on.
  • Possibly hard on the serving material…

Also below is a leather version which I have seen on the internet but not a one finger design. It works well too, but I like the plastic ring better.
