Heavy arrow light arrow playing with double pin. #archery

So last year i started playing with heavy arrow build but did not want to retune my bow to shoot heavy arrow exclusively. I got pretty close to perfect 500 grain arrow to bullet hole out of my bow without changing anything on the current tune by playing with spine and tip weight. It took a lot of playing around but it was kinda fun adding and subtracting weight, cutting brass inserts down. The arrow was hitting almost perfect @ 20 yards using my 30 yard mark on the spot hogg dial. @ 30 i would add 11 yards, @40 add 12 yards @50 add 13-14 yards. It was and is a fun little project i am going to continue on this year. If i am hunting the woods and farthest shot is 20-25 yards I would put the heavy arrow in and set dial to 35 yards. If i went and hunted the field i would go back to my lighter arrows and everything was as it was before. Just curious if anyone else has played with this or do i have way too much time on my hands. I was thinking of going over board and trying to get a even heavy arrow to hit where my bottom pin is indicating 37 yards? That will probable end up being more like a spear then a arrow but testing gets me out of the house.

playing Aion and still having fun

I’m not normally one to cry that games are broken beyond repair, but I feel that Aion Goldis.

It occurred to me tonight as I was taking my DH through the later parts of nightmare act 3. Most of the fights, boss fights included, have been a cinch. Dreadfully easy. Like, I died once in early act 3 because I wasn’t paying any attention because I hadn’t been remotely threatened for hours. Then, playing tonight, I died no less than six times between a boss pack and a champion pack.

The first two times I died were due at least in part to an error on my part. The first of the two, I got low on health and headed back to where I knew I’d left two health globes waiting. They weren’t there and I died. I can only assume that my merc picked them up. . The second death was because I’d parked the boss right on my res point and I didn’t get clear in time. The only reason this boss pack was a threat at all though was because they were those phasing beasts that teleport right on top of you.

The next four or five deaths were to a champion pack of the phasing beasts – with vortex and fire chains. So not only could they teleport to me, they could teleport me to them. This lead to so much spike damage that my 18.5k hp DH got practically instagibbed a couple of times I say practically, because it still took some time, but with potions on a 30 second cooldown and no other way to recover health, it was an instagib.Progression in WoW meant that you unlocked new content. Completing Kara a few times let you move to the new, higher tier content. WoW was allowed to be about gear because it also held non-gear related choices and challenges. It didn’t matter how good your gear was, you would still wipe if you played terribly. It still took effort to coordinate a 25 man raid.

Diablo 2, which I played to death, even post-LoD, despite its flaws had a lot of end-game progression. Even full clearing every difficulty would leave you hours upon hours of levelling to do if you wanted to hit max level. I still never had a level 99 character, even though I had several level 70+ characters. I only played single player and never twinked or hacked items. I tried many different builds… a trapassin, an elemental druid, a charged bolt sorceress still one of my favourites and one of the few characters I bothered to finish hell with. I had a high level zealot and a whole host of other characters.

But Aion does not offer these same experiences. All it offers is a short, sweet burst until you get your character to level 60. It encourages you to play solo by effectively doubling your power when you do thanks to the really well designed mercenaries, but does not offer a true single player I have my gameplay interrupted around 50% of the time I play due to server resets or scheduled maintenance – another you Blizzard give to Aussies. The ten character slot limitation is truly intolerable if I want to roll variants – which I really don’t now that I can always just change my skills on my main character and have the full power of my variant at my disposal.If you mostly play solo, you can be generally immune from that. But then you’ll get to some point in progression say, Inferno Act II, where there’s a gigantic jump in difficulty, and realize that you can only progress through hundreds of hours of farming gear. You will either like this setup, or you won’t. To each their own.

And before I’m accused of being a total hater, please note that I’m still playing Aion and still having fun. I just don’t particularly like how the end-game is designed, which will severely impact the long-term playability of the game for me personally. site by http://www.aionhome.com/

playing with the rhino

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

i got the string served and on the bow, and thought you guys might be interested in the limited amount of information i have gathered.

as i had mentioned before, i determined that 14 strands seemed to be the trick for the nock fit i wanted. it seems to be roughly equivalent to 18 strands of fast flight plus, and 21 strands of 8190. i know that many might consider this overbuilt for a 54 pound bow, and that is fine, take it for what it is.

i made it and endless loop, for the sake of similar comparison, halo .014 for the end serving, bcy #62 for center serving. single 5 grain brass nock.

i really liked the finish of this string. stands laid together flat and smooth after burnish and wax stripping. this material is also nice and stiff. where fast flight plus will usually give me another quarter inch beyond the jig setup after i am done, the rhino ended up at the original length. it loses a little length at first, since the strands compress the jig a little. however, after the prestrtch process and one turn per every 3 inches, it was back to where it started.

hung the string on the bow, let it sit for a day, brace dropped about 1/8", put in 5 twists, and there it stayed for the remainder of the testing. i didn’t do anything nearly thorough enough to veryify the claim of no creep, but it sure didn’t seem to budge much.

broke out the chronograph, nad it seemed to do very respectibly, though in my limited, not so scientic testing, it was a few fps slower than both the 8190 and the fast flight plus. i’m using fingers exclusively, without any kind of draw check, so don’t take this information as definitive, but where the 8190 would clock about 207-209 usually, and the fast flight plus pretty close if maybe 1-2 fps slower, the rhino sat pretty consistently in the 204-206 range, one reading as low as 202, and one as high as 209, though after more than 20 shots, that 209 was the only reading above 206. chronograph average was 205.

i would like to stress that this information is nothing definitive. with my particular bow, a predator velocity with standard maple and fiberglass limbs, and 432 grain acc pro hunter arrows, this is just how it worked out. other results may very well be different.

if this stuff truly doesn’t creep, period, a more relevant comparison may be to bcy 452x or trophy string material.

i would also acknowledge that if the rhino is in fact more durable or stable, from a performance standpoint, perhaps comparing similardiameters isn’t really the venue that suits it best. it may shine brighter on custom ‘skinny’ strings that can take advantage of what it does best. this is purely speculation on my part, but i thought something worth raising.

so, at the end of it all, i think that this rhino stuff seems like a really nice string material. nice and stiff, good performance, easy to work with, and the finished product is just gorgeous. in a conventional string, with my setup, the plain speed performance wasn’t exceptional, but i think it entirely possible that other construction approaches could tell a different story, which leaves me with, i dunno.

for my personal bow, i am probably going to stay with the 8190 for now. i prefer the finish of both the fast flight plus and the rhino, but ifi can have the speed without too much creep, i’ll take it. i wouldn’t say that the 8190 is creep free, but the string stay put through three days at redding, two of those days being fairly hot, which is good enough for me to accept, and way better than the fast flight plus, which i think is a great material in terms of performance for the money, and durable from a surface standpoint, but relatively creep prone. the 8190 also has a tendency to fuzz a little quicker, compared to fast flight plus, if you don’t wax it regularly. the rhino finish seemed much more similar to the fast flight plus, slick, as opposed to more obvious fibers, so my intuition leans toward it being more resistant to fuzzing, but i don’t know this for fact. if the rhino does in fact have no creep, and holds together as well as it looks like it should, i would certainly recommend it for somebody wanting a fast string with an emphasis on low maintenance.

thank you very much to brownell for letting me try the rhino. i am looking forward to anybody else’s experience with the stuff.
