I tried B50 on my Shelton, but it just had too much shock with B50. I really wanted it to work since B50 is so cheap, but a 10 strand D97 eliminated the shock and was just as quiet as the B50. I don't care about gaining performance, nor do I see that it makes much of a performance difference on Hill style bows anyway.

Thank you so much for posting this [archer]

I strung up my 76# Big 5 and took some form shots in the basement while following these direction as best I could and my arrows were in groups about the size of a quarter every time

Thanks for reposting this link.

Very good material! [thumbsup]

Morning Jeff...

"Morning Sun" comes from the still darkness in the early morning. The bewitching time when all you can hear is is your breath as you sit, waiting for first light. Then she comes, not fully revealed but her silent glory begins to announce her coming and all the world waits to greet her. I shiver a bit and know she will grace my face with her warm greeting while burning the frost from the leaves. She gives energy to the breeze and the world comes to life. She is deadly silent and as sweet as the fragrance of the morning air as it rises from the forest floor.
She is not here yet but will come in her time. We wait patiently with great expectation. We will all behold her natural glory together when her time is come!

I started to try my hand at shooting both ways but I was advised by someone I have great respect for that I might better off not doing it unless there was some physical reason that necessitated it.

I am barely an average shooter to begin with and if shooting both ways was going to make that worse, I couldn't afford to take that chance.

"Morning Sun"....has a nice ring to it.

Great job Tony of painting us a verbal picture of what it looks like in those pre-dawn moments before the sun rises in all it's glory.

God bless,Mudd

Tony,

The mental picture you painted was the perfect way to celebrate page 500 and make it a keeper.

I have a feeling you may have spent a day or two in the woods.

P.S. Yesterday, I saw a flock of about 50 robins in my upper llama pasture, and this morning I heard the first red wing black bird. I think Idaho's spring may have just sprung!

Darren- Xcel is made by Brownell. Really good stuff! Not as abrasive resistant as D97 (you have to keep it waxed) but a much softer feel.

Phillip,
Thanks! Those who have been there will know it intimately.

Thanks Rik, I have spent a few hours in the woods. Have missed it dearly these past few years. I've some catchin' up to do.

Morning Sun and I have a perpetual date. Hope our paths cross one day - perhaps next year at the hog slaughter in GA??

When it has been mentioned "wingspan" as a measurement, just to clarify, are we talking about the measurement of both arms extended from tip of middle finger to tip of middle finger? Is that correct?
