Arrow – shaft sizing vs. gains for 3D entry #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hello,

So I hope I am able to put this in words as best possible. Currently I am shooting Victory V-force Elites 300 spine arrows.

The other day I go to our Local Bow shop, because I need my Peep readjusted, and having failed to bring my arrows, we proceed through the Peep setup on the range with a set of Shop Micro-Diameter Arrows. Anyway we get through the setup, peep set and tied, get to the house and all is good, no issues with shooting my arrows.

But I am confused as to the current (size) offerings of arrows.

With all that out of the way, I am looking to dab into some 3D archery, given that it is more accessible here that it was in TX. Am I wrong for thinking I need to just dive in and get some Target Oriented Arrows (.380 OD Arrows), or what are some alternatives.

I am shooting an Prime Black 5 65# w/ SH Fast Eddie XL and VT Gen7 rest.

Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated.

Trying to get my 13 yr old son back into archery. I’m looking for something that is adjustable as he is still growing. So far, I’ve looked at the Bear Cruzer G2 and Diamond Infinite Edge Pro. Any other options in that price range I should look at?

Least expensive, entry level “adult” longbow?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Guys, what longbow would you recommend for an adult to get started with? Something like the Samick "Verna", at 64"? I’m 6’1" and have a 29" compound draw length. Looking for something to get started with and a longbow intrigues me. I shoot my compound at 70# and my recurve at 50#.

Thanks for any info you guys can offer.

Noob Trad Archer Journey – Entry 1 – First Shoot Ever

Hey all,

Not even sure how I buried my first thread in the subforum where nobody looks much, but it’s all good, I got excellent advice nonetheless.

I’m a new archer with no coaching and very little experience (shot compound bows two or three times over 15 years, also with no coaching besides 5-minute breakdown of range rules/tips). I did a ton of research online, including this forum, before jumping in, and I went to every local shop within 40km of my house. I also bought Anthony Camera’s "Shooting the Stickbow" and it’s been my nighttime reading for a few weeks. But reading and fantasizing just wasn’t enough. I knew diving into the sport without coaching wasn’t a great idea, but coached archery classes are booked up to September/October where I live, and I wanted archery RIGHT NOW (complete with toddler tantrums).

72 hours after I placed my order, a wonderful package arrived in the mail. I then did NOT proceed to take any pictures, because I was too excited. Then it rained, and I got called into work whenever it did not rain, or I did not have transportation out into rural areas, and days turned into weeks while my little Samick Sage sat in a corner, begging to be used. I could go on at length with this, but forget that, let’s just skip ahead to the good stuff. Eventually the weather cleared up and schedules lined up and I had a brief opportunity to go shooting.

I double checked all my gear, made sure I had the essentials, riser, limbs, bowstring, and then we were there. Then DISASTER struck! I lost my bowstring. I’m still kicking myself about it. I did not get to shoot my bow. 🙁

My friend accompanying me bought the exact same bow, however, only right-handed (I shoot left, or rather I’d like to). I’m glad I went with a lower poundage bow, and I’m glad there’s nothing terribly wrong with my right arm, shoulders, and back muscles, because it turns out using the right-handed bow wasn’t so bad. Okay, I’m fibbing, it felt very awkward to me, but I managed.


Oh hi, this is me by the way. Let’s get to the nitty-gritty. Critique me!

My thoughts: I think my lower body twisted a bit somehow. Woops. I’ve drawn my bow a few times without the glove, and this was my first time with the glove on, so finding an anchor was difficult. Also, I’m not even sure this picture was taken right before the shot, I forgot to ask my friend, but it was the closest to.

Other excuses: On the drive down I found out my father had been hospitalized, and I had injured my right knee in a jog the day before, and the place was swarming with hungry mosquitoes (and guess what kind of spray we forgot). I’m just terrible at this. But really, I wound up in a pretty bad mental place, held just barely at bay by the fact that I was finally (almost, kinda) shooting my recurve bow (but you know, reversed).

Well, that’s the best I managed, out of 24 total shots (6 per round). We had to get out of there because the bugs got too bad.

I’m regretting not making a vague X target out of some duct tape, because now that I think of it, I had nothing to aim for. My goal was "don’t get arrows lost in those woods back there." Mission accomplished, I suppose.

The one neat thing I noticed was that, the far left deviant arrow in the last photo was the one shot where I had my arm is bad position and the bowstring gave it a good burn.

I don’t feel that bad though, because I burned myself a dozen times or more with my compound shooting experiences. Maybe the late night reading IS slowly sinking in.

Looking forward to Entry 2, and hopefully sharing it with you fine folks so I can become a real archer (right now I’m still a fake one).

P.S. For a 62" Samick Sage at 30lb, what replacement bowstrings should I go with? Ideally I would like to order off Amazon.ca, which means this directory of bowstrings.
