    Doo dads are not the same as squishy thingys......


    Doo dads add speed, squishy things reduce string noise. Lets be clear about what we are loosely referencing here...

    exactly, but you can counteract the squishies by adding doo dads.. or just remove the squishies, add the doo dads and it will be even faster..
    see? I know what i'm talking about!

    now, if i could just get that dillywomper adjusted.

    I'm sure someone on here would be glad to help you adjust your dillywomper if you asked nicely....

    Exactly J.A.G. that's what the plan is...remove squishies and add the doo dads...see you understand very well. More noise...(like it is noisy now what more can it do) but more speed weeeee....maybe I'll get up to 200 fps LOL. I have no idea what I'm doing in that area but more speed will get those heavy suckers I'm shooting get to the target better. (I guess suckers must be arrows)Maybe we need to come up with our own little archery lexicon LOL.

    If that is the case, I lost all my suckers at the Bedford IBO last weekend and I need a new dozen suckers.

Have been out of commission all this week with the arm so hopefully I can try shooting a bit this weekend.

    My next venture is where to find anyone that has a chronograph cause the pro shop doesn't and it would be intresting to even know what is going on with my speed not that it matters that much at this point. If I ever wanted to enter any tourney's I'd have to know though.
    JAG made my point more clear than I did. I think your arrow is really heavy because of the point (at least). For indoor 5 spot I shoot a 29" Fatboy with 85gr screw in points and shoot a 29" draw at 60#. Those suckers fly right and the spine is pretty much right on according to Easton.

    As far as removing glue-in points from carbon or ACC shafts I have no clue. I've stayed away from that since aluminum arrow days since you can't heat carbon the way you could alloy.

    For indoor spots I shoot 525g Easton Eclipse X7s out of an Ovation shooting at 55lbs! I thing my points are 150g......

    There sure are a lot of opinions on indoor setups....

    Do you really know what a Padawan is Bowman?? I could ask George to come explain to you the deep dark secrets on that next time I see him. I have actually talked with him on several occasions. I drive by Skywalker ranch fairly often but when you see him at the mall eating Thai food and no one even looks twice at him, you know he's at home.

    A Padawan, Padawan learner, or Jedi Apprentice in Basic, was a child, or in some cases an adult, who began serious training under a Jedi Knight or a Jedi Master, chosen by the Knight or Master himself from the ranks of the younglings.
