    Hello I'm New

  1. Hey fellows. I have been using one of the plastic housed, in-Line vertical pin sights. I cracked the frame and busted a pin late in the season this year so I will be looking for a replacement. Here is my question: I know the advantages the manufactures claim about the in-line vertical sights- less field of view obstruction. What are the disadvantages of the in-line vertical sights and/or the advantages of horizantal pin sights? I look forward to reading your opinions? Anybody use the 3-pin HHA (I think it is the 5500- 2 vertical plane pins, 1 horizontal pin)? Thoughts?

    New bow.

    I agree. I would shoot the bow that feels most comfortable. Three points. Before you start experimenting with bows, I would figure out your correct draw length, approximately. A good, rough estimate is to have someone measure your "wingspan": Standing upright with both arms stretched straight to your sides, measure from the tip of one middle finger to the tip of the other middle finger. Divide this number by 2.5" If you are about 6' tall, it should measure around 29"-29 1/2". Only test the bows that are close to your draw length or have the shop change the draw lenghth before testing it. For me, the comfort of the bow largely depends on the draw cycle (when the let-off occurs, and when the peak force occurs). If you are drawing a bow that doesn't have close to the right draw length for you, the let-off will seem to come too early or too late. Make sure the bow has approx the right draw length for you to give it a valid evaluaion. 2) How does the handle feel. Some manufactures have very aggressive handles. What I mean by that is the angle of the handle compared to the riser. Myself, I prefer more conservative handles. Also, the width of the handle. 3) Look at the specs, stay with at least a 7-7 1/2" brace height.
  3. My first post. Anchor Point: I recently read in one of the more popular bowhunting publications that anchoring your thumb behind your neck is poor form: It torques your wrist. I believe this might be why I have not improved as much as I would have liked when it comes to target practice, especially 35+ yards. After several years of shooting this way, It has been difficult for me to break this bad, yet comfortable, habit for me. I am thinking about trying a t-handle release and by getting rid of the wrist-strap, help break this habit. Who is using these, t-handle releases, for target practice and BOWHUNTING.....what is your opinion on them..pros, cons, etc? Thank you
