« on: April 29, 2014, 09:39:19 AM »
Flinging arrows at targets....competitively.
Even getting into making bows......longbow I'm making
Still need to trim down the limbs a bit....aiming for about 45-50lbs draw at 28".  Currently closer to 70lbs.

I used to do a lot of classic recurve archery and did compete quite a bit. It has been a serious while since then but it was very cool. I still have my A/C arrows, my fancy Hoyt helix with Carbon foam limbs with 40pounds of pressure. But lack of infrastructure and now I'm into different hobbies so I don't quite have the time to put into that anymore. One thing, when and if I get back to archery, I'll just get a cheaper and lighter set of limbs, the one I have now are way too heavy lol. Tried it last fall and it was harsh.

Challenge it because it is unreachable.

I have a set of 26lbs medium limbs I'll sell you....SF Archery if I remember correctly (assuming the Helix is ILF).
Certainly not in the same class as the Hoyt carbon foam limbs, but decent quality, and I took bronze with them in one tournament.   I've gone completely traditional with longbow and woodies.

I'd love to get them but the truth is... I am busy enough with all my other hobbies and the multiple ways I waste my time, hence, I don't even take the helix out of the case. I tried getting back to archery during fall but it just wasn't the same and I couldn't even get there once a week.
