Clarity Clarity Clarity and Crystal clear.

Forgetting the basics will lead down the errant path and greatly diminish the value of this noble site.

Thank you for the reminder, since I too am not immune from getting a way from the basics.

Thank you moderators!!!!!!!!!

Great job, as a new member I appreciate the clarification. As an archer of the old persuasion. I can confirm we all need guidance.
Thanks Don

Thanks for the Post Rob. Although I have been a member for 3 years now, I haven't had a lot to say but I enjoy the Trad Gang site. I am retired now and will become more involved. Since I was a little boy archery has always been one of my hobbies whether hunting or just target shooting or roving. It is good to know the rules and have a level playing field with respect, while discussing varied topics and concerns and sharing expertise, experience and personal opinions. Thanks again!

Thank you for providing such a priceless resource, I do not have a mentor so I will be learning on my own! Life is GOOD!♠

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. TGMM ♥

On second thought could the Trad Gang be my mentor?

And how!

I am an old new member or new old member. Let me explain. I registered here back in 2006 and promptly forgot all about it and just reregistered (THEN, saw the big red notice at the forum home page and got a polite email pointing out my errant ways from Rob, which made me think my alzheimers is finally kicking in) and the reason I registered and then never came back is because of the tendonitis I've inflicted on my elbows and shoulders every year since 97 or so because the beautiful Bob Lee Signature TD I bought from Jay St. Charles was too heavy and I couldn't bear to part with it. There wasn't this very informative piece around when I needed it (even though I probably would have missed it just like the reregistration warning) so every year now my enthusiasm for traditional archery has been frozen by pain because I bought a bow which I thought I could "grow into" because my compound was so much heavier. A bad case of "it couldn't happen to me." And... to put it one way, I am a very persistent fellow so I am very capable of inflicting a great deal of damage to myself in pursuit of my love, which is bowhunting, so every year, back to the wheels and cams I've limped.

Then JJ at Bob Lee suggested reducing my limbs, which I did in March and it is a miracle! And I am juiced up and buying new arrows and barred feathers and a new quiver and lifting weights and ... finding my way back to Trad Gang, which is where I finally read Rob's advice to newbies this time before crippling myself. The bow is still a bit too heavy, but because of Rob's article I have ordered my fletching tape AND I am buying a training bow, which I think is going to be the 40 lb. Samick Sage TD because it is very affordable and the shelf and brace is almost identical to my Bob Lee even though the Sage is not a show bow by any means and new limbs only cost $70 so I stand a better than even chance of enticing my wife out into the field with me with 30 lb. limbs.

Thank you, Rob.

So. Read the instructions, THEN assemble the barbecue, not the other way around.

OK. Got it.

Very concise and to the point. As a long time target archer (bow hunting banned in my native country) I'm looking to diversify and this site and another was recommended by the trad archers in our club.
