Introduction + So much love for recurves.

Hi Guys,

Just joined today. Been lurking for last few days just reading some posts and taking on board some great form advice. Hailing from South East London, UK 🙂 (Saw its predominantly Americans here, be nice haha).

I used to shoot recurves quite a lot when i was younger (14-15) and i remembered being quite good at it. Im now 23 and i mentioned to my sister that i wanted to get back into it, so she bought me an archery taster session for christmas, shortly after i looked into getting my own recurve >_<. I fell madly in love with archery again and now its all i want to do! I have a Petron S1. 66" at 32 pounds. Not an amazing bow but suits me quite nicely. I used to love the idea of getting a compound but recurves are my first love.

After checking out some videos of some amazing skill i became quite obsessed with whisker biscuits and their whole concept. Really is an ingenuous idea. I googled around and the general consensus with WB’s and recurves was NO. A lot of people said you cant physically do it, and a lot said they have terrible accuracy on recurves. Well, i bought a cheap whisker biscuit (like £8). First problem was i couldnt have it on the far side of the riser, the mount wouldnt reach to the other end, so i had to affix it on the back of the riser closest to me. Secondly the fletchings were catching on the 3 points the brushers were at, so i unscrewed the biscuit from the mounting rod and turned it 90 degree’s, you can see below, its supposed to load from the top, now loads from the side, but it now means the fletchings sit flush with the side of the riser, and theyre lined up perfectly to go through between the whiskers, not through them. And i actually think bringing the biscuit back and closer to the string it improves accuracy, Moving the bow after release can severely affect accuracy, but im guessing the closer the rest is to the string the less time you have to move the bow to disrupt flight before the arrow is clear.

Also, im well aware bow hunting in the UK is entirely illegal (what isnt in the UK :P). But how about Bow Fishing? I cant get a definitive answer as to its legal status over here. Besides, fish are probably all id be able to bring myself to kill to be honest >_<

Cant have a quiver like this if im not shooting something!

What happened to the man that made the Zona’s? I knew he was a trucker and only made them when he had a chance from being in off the road, but is he still making bows? Anybody know?

Question re factory finishes used on old recurves?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I have several older laminated recurves, Ben Pearson, Wing, Bear etc. I shoot these bows a lot and some are showing signs of finish failure, particularly on the working portion of the limbs, where the finish has developed crazing, a network of minute surface cracks. This has me wondering what sort of finishes were typically used on commercial bows during the 60s, 70s and 80s. Does anyone in the forum have certain knowledge of this? Thanks.

After carefully removing the factory finish, I have used nitrocellulose lacquer (clear satin) to refinish old bows with good durable results. Other recommendations or comments?

Fred bear recurves quality?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Is it common for recurve bow to brake like this after only 5 years, I see some 1960s 1970s bows that are still shooting well and here are pictures of my 2009 fred bear grizzly 60#. I have taken good care of the bow, kept it unstrung, always used stringer, never twisted limbs, kept it stored in room temperature and I haven’t shoot it that much.
I was at full draw when the bottom limb cracked. Unfortunately I am on market for new bow and I do like bear bows but I have doubts about their quality. Also I have called bear customer service and it was funny because answer that I got from them is: Well its made out of wood, so you never know! 2014-01-14_19-16-51_818.jpg2014-01-14_19-15-23_159.jpg2014-01-14_19-20-31_414.jpg

I suppose most folks would buy this bow as a collector piece…but me?…I ain’t rich enough to hang cash on the wall and call it art…and after 49years?…this bow is screaming for some exercise!…which it will most definitely get at my place! :laugh:

and I couldn’t be more pleased about the purchase of such…thanks for looking, Bill. :cool2:

limbsavers on recurves

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

how many of you guys are using limbsavers on your recurves? what are your expieriences with them? any noticable speed loss or accuracy issues related to them? i had some on my bow a while ago (years ago) and seemed to adversly affect my accuracy and adventually they came off. i see many more new styles on the market and was thinking for quieting purposes putting some back on. any suggestions? bow isnt too loud but could always be quieter.
