    I did not know for blue color when I bought Filson jacket and pants

    I will still keep considering the price and that blue is almost black

    Already said have others in brown but wool jacket and pants are too heavy to be pleasant to wear

    However I am unconditional wool underwear and shirts

    With above a modern technical jacket 100% waterproof and warm much more the best wool

    My pants and wool jacket weight 3,5 kilo ( 7,72 Lbs ):oops:

    I started this post about the camo and the subject deviates to wool clothing

    why not

    I have two FILSON sets for years that are very nice ( and expensive) one blue dark one brown

    They are very comfortable but not if have to walk They make me sweat are very heavy and very very heavy if rain. I use them when in a stand very close my home

    With new materials it’s easy to have such hot clothing as waterproof even more and much lighter

    If I have to walk it’s my choice with a scent look below

    The mountaineers abandoned wool long time ago except for socks It is not without reason

    Of course Fred Asbell ( and his wife) are unconditional wool they present as traditional clothing

    (This is also why I bought from Filson)

    On an other hand I can wash my modern suits easy rinse with baking soda as often as necessary And dry it quickly

    Here in the south of France temperatures are never very low 7 to 8° F. are maximum but here the climate is so wet that the slightest cold is very hard to bear

    If wear wool to be traditional must also hunt with a bow without fiberglass, carbon-free , without fast flite …. wooden shafts and self made knife …….

    All this without the slightest idea of changing something or think that I am right, Just the pleasure of exchanging point of views and our own experiences with an ocean between us :?::D:?:

    Hi, You wrote Perhaps I’m just old fashioned

    Not at all, but you and I and many others are

    faced with the infernal machine

    How does this machine?

    You put lies on one side there will always be an idiot to recover what comes out the other side

    Those who know how to keep feet on the ground and maintain true values ??are increasingly rare

    But for those happiness is the ultimate

    For them to share these values ??with younger or more weak

    Yes this is what I’m talking about

    Languages are fun Mastic in French is a paste to fix glass on wooden Windows ( ! )

    Anyway, this product I and 99% French 3D archers use is not the shippest but gives best results

    I also use it to glue multi pieces 3D targets when too old

    Otherwise, I repair one side, returns the target to let it dry and shoot non-repaired side

    On average 3 to 6 days for drying depending on temperature, and thickness

    You should try , sure for one ( and may be first ) time French archers teach something to their American friends… LoL…. :roll::idea::roll::oops:

    HI Friend from the North

    I hunt with wooden arrows for more than 26 years, but for 3D carbon is without comparaison

    With trad bow a 30 yards ( or more ) 3D is a chalange with wood an exploiter

    Here 3D targets are not at unting distances

    I use to practice in Canada and 3D target are at realist possibilities

    Other culture other ways 😈

    Here To day 90 Fahrenheit what about your’s ? :oops::oops:

    in reply to: string length #63767

    Hi,

    As this is a very light bow, may be for a kid you can easy string the bow with an ordinary rope respecting the brace height , then you measure the string with enough range- for 2 loops

    With this information you build a dacron string 12-14 strands .

    Enought for a 20Lbs bow

    A word of advice – it’s all well and good to have different opinions on this, or any other topic, and to express them constructively. But condescencion is completely unecessary. Not to mention, your contributions might be better received. It’s easy – just be nice.

    Not wanted to hurt anyone if I did I regret it

    Remember that I think in French and once translated it can strike

    There are lot of bowmaker and less very good hunters ( I do not speak for myself )

    One of my friend killed two african buff with a 65 Lbs L.B. Dwyer , a very classic bow, I killed a 175 Lbs wild board with my 42 Lbs recurve my arrow passed through completely

    I killed a lot with this bow but the 175Lbs was the bigger

    With my Cover Hunter Border bow 42 Lbs recurve at my 28 ‘’ draw length I shoot 550 grains arrow more than 190 Fps . With 10 grains / Lbs I’m well above 200 Pfs

    That what I call an exceptional bow ( price is also exceptional but it deserve it )

    Hope this will be as sporting and friendly I wish, nothing more nothing less

    As for which particular bow to get, I can’t help. I’ve never shot a bow that was more than just a bow. No magic, despite what the bowyers claim, or those that have bought into their narrative.

    A guy that does not know that some bows are much more efficient than other… I have not met for 30 years . News are slow to reach some remote corners

    There are also those who cannot acquire the very best and who console themselves ( and others ) by trying to make others believe that it does not exist

    Results of the world championships are unavoidable

    Many bowhunters around the world cannot all be wrong and only one archer in the depths of his country be alone to hold the truth

    I do not make any pub for any bowmaker but I know that a good fly rod does not take more fish than a $ 50 one, but of high quality 10 or 20 times more expensive makes many things impossible with one at a small price

    Since Border introduced the carbon in its hunting bows all bowmakers are trying to copy specially big US brands:):D

    If you can afford it here is your solution with FULL CARBON LIMBS

    http://www.borderbows.com/griffon-gl-p549.html

    I have one of these bows = with 42 Lbs and 12 grains / Lbs I have more speed than with a 50 Lbs BW

    Lot of bowhunters all around the world send their riser to have Border Carbon Limbs

    The most amazing is the option BB2 the last 10 inches are becoming more flexible It gives unique comfort

    Border is not American not French but he makes most fantastic bows we can imagine

    There are lot of youtube about Borderbows specially from US bowhunters 🙄

    in reply to: Tendonitis? #24896

    10 years earlier Glucosamine + Chondroitin was the wonder drug today everyone here in France knows that this is a scam

    Shockwave new therapy works well ( 1 time a week during 4 to 5 weeks ) but a requirement to leave the arm concerned at absolute rest. forbidden to raise 1 pound for 30 days

    Only rheumatology specialist doctor or sports medicine can do this

    Second option is surgery

    Third option I used for tennis elbow due to pulling hard bows is to tighten strongly an elastic band 2 inches below the elbow with two bones, no risk of blocking forearm blood

    This released my tennis elbow and allowed me quickly continue to shoot with a 48 lbs bow

    After a shooting session it is good to put ice on the elbow during 20 minutes, no more

    All of this worked for me and a lot of friends and for important tennis elbows

    Try, it’s free
