New guy trying to decide #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Okay guys, forgive me if this topic has been beaten to death, but I need to get some answers. I would rank myself as a beginner shooter. I do understand basic technique and have had a few bows in my life. When it comes to experience, that is what I want more of. I am planning on moving more towards hunting with a bow and less with a rifle for many reasons. I currently own a LH Mathews Z7 60lb at 29.5 (I think the draw is right). I just put a new string on it and, to be expected, its a little stiff. I really want to buy a newer bow but am a little intimidated by all the choices out there. I would like to buy used. Are newer bows with newer technology easier to pull. I feel like I really struggle with 60# and if shopping for a bow, I want to know what is right for me. Im 6’4 230lbs and athletic and in and out of the gym. I know I dont need to pull 90# to achieve my goals, but Im wondering if my current setup would be much different that say a Hoyt Defiant. Being LH doesnt exactly present me with a ton of opportunities at the local bow shop to try different bows to see how they feel. Heck, the local bow shop is either Bass Pro or another shop 45 miles away. Should better bow shops have a few of the latest and greatest tuned and ready for me to fling a few arrows downrange? What are the benefits that I should see when spending 1k on a bow. I guess, does 60lbs feel the same on all bows? I hope that makes sense. I really would like to buy the best I can afford and not have to buy for a few years. Im afraid if I start with an entry level bow, Ill wish I bought something a little better. So, how much difference is there from a 10yr old Mathews setup vs a new Hoyt or Prime? Hope that isnt to vague..

Brand new Ol’Man Ladder stand collapses and breaks trying to set it up….

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Friday afternoon, taking brand new out of the box Ol Man bowlite ladder into a spot on public land here in Florida. We get it set up, tie off the straps to keep it from coming off the tree when attaching the ratchet, place the stabilizer bar on…I go to the back of the tree and start pulling the straps to keep the stand on the trunk as my buddy is climbing up to do the ratchet strap…He gets all the way up and starts putting on the ratchet and says "its starting to buckle" ( I cannot see him through the tree so I dont know exactly what is happening)…moments later my straps which have tension on them go completely slack and I hear him falling to the ground…stand bent completely over on itself on the legs in two places…very fortunate that he was only bruised up and not hurt badly…be careful hanging stands. I will be calling Ol’Man today when they open.

Trying to figure out my holding weight, not so straight forward

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Not so straight forward and just a guesstimate, 26" Vanquish riser wound in 3 turns on the bolts, 43# Hex6′s at 26.25" on the button showing 44#, problem is I don’t have decent set of scales (just cheap fishing scales) seems from my Longbows it appears to be consistently showing around 2# less as marked on the scales and as I’m drawing 1" shorter I’m guessing I’m holding around 43 to 44# at anchor.

29" 500 Lightspeed 350g, 3" feathers, 125g point gives me 60y point on (ideal for IFAA 3D), bareshaft showing slightly stiff but I don’t want to increase point weight or poundage as one more turn on the bolts puts me out of my Form comfort zone, at this current setting I’m drilling the 10 ring out to 40y one more turn on the bolts and I start to see a more Form mistakes. I’ve got some 29" 550 Carbon1′s with 120g points on order and I hope these tune a little better.

Today I figured out 70 and 80 yards using riser shelf, felt good to keep them in the score zone at these distances.

Trying to figure out what I need to know (archery gear)

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

As a total newb, I think I’ve settled on picking up a Samick Sage. Probably with #25 limbs. My thinking is that my wife and I can both use it to learn and practice form and eventually I may buy another with more pull for me.

But what else do we need? I think we’d like to get a sight, I’m hoping it will help us learn to aim a bit better but I have no clue what I am looking for. I *think* Shibuya Dual Click Standard Recurve Sight (Lancaster http://www.lancasterarchery.com/shib…rve-sight.html) looks OK. Seems a bit high but I’d like something that is easy to use and doesn’t require weird tools to adjust or constantly needs adjusting or rattles and falls apart. Any other recommendations?

Arrows. No idea. I see all these numbers and part types but no real idea what I’m looking at. I *think* something carbon (tho, someday, I think I’d like to learn to make wood ones) but I didn’t know they came in pieces? Do you buy tips and ends and everything separate or is there some beginner arrows that are ok for just learning on that come will all the pieces?

Nock? What is that? The little bead on the string? (Sorry, so far just shot at the range with a rental). Does the bow come with that or do I figure out how to put that on? Speaking of, what about strings? Is the Dacron string good at such a low # or should we try something else? And what about stringing it? How do I go about learning that and what will we need?

I know we’ll need to grab some sort of wrist bracer and finger glove/guard, but not sure what I am looking for.

I’d like to set up a target in the backyard… prices and styles seem all over the place. I’ve seen some pictures of some bag types with what looks like a PVC frame that I could maybe construct with a trip to home depot, does that work ok?

What about bow maintenance? Do you do anything to the string?

Sorry for so many questions. Excited to learn but just not sure what I need to learn. I don’t expect answers to everything but any pointers to a web site or book that goes over the various pieces of gear and bow maintenance/upkeep would be much appreciated. I ordered a copy of Shooting the Stickbow: A Practical Approach to Classical Archery that should be here tomorrow, anyone know if it covers the bulk of these questions?

I could talk to the guys at the archery range we go to but it’s just a madhouse. It’s crazy busy, I feel bad being a total newb and holding up the line of 10-15 people behind me while I try and ask what I know must be crazy newb questions. Then I don’t know if they are giving me *good* answers or expedient answers or answers that just get me to buy what they have in stock.

Archers trying to help archers

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Guys –

A friend of mine has this sticky on the FITA forum:
http://www.archerytalk.com/vb/showthread.php?t=2037374

I think it’s worth taking a look at.

A lot of times we get questions or recommendations and we wind up giving our takes or opinions rather than answering what the OPs wants or needs to know.
You know the drill, a guys ask about "which arrows" he needs for "x" bow, and we find out later on that he’s about 6" short of a full draw or strangling the grip to a point where "torque" requires capitol letters. Similarly, an archer shooting below a 200 level would typically benefit more from different advice than someone shooting above a 270 on the indoor rounds, even if they describe similar problems. That may seem elitist, but it’s true.

Basically, the more info you give us, the better the odds on you getting useful information in return.

BTW – I started a similar there here a while back, but it was derailed pretty quickly.
Thankfully the moderators have done a great job of getting the forum back on track, and hopefully we can be more effective Archers helping Archers.

Viper1 out.
