I think if we overthought riding a bicycle like we do shooting a bow we’d be busting our butts on every attempt to ride.
I’ve been through the “thinking” stage and gave it up. Nowadays I just diddle til it works and contribute it to man’s ability to make things work, go shoot my my bow and over the years have I’ve out a miss is me not any of the other billions of what if’s, molecules and ………..
Saying all that I still have gravity and friction and wind excuses…and I know some of those targets butts jump the string…
Speaking of 1916’s…Back in the day if you weren’t shooting 2117’s you didn’t know what you were doing…Now that I’m shooting 47# and 42# bows I’m simply amazed what 1916’s do….
Never overlook common sense ……………..nor experience……………..after 60 or so years of bowshooting and tuning I just kinda know what’s gonna work and what maybe will….Explain to you?? Doubtful…Show you one on one very likely…RalphModeratorSeptember 26, 2020 at 4:22 pmPost count: 2545RalphModeratorModeratorSeptember 8, 2020 at 7:41 amPost count: 2545
My mix similar to yours but I like to add chipotle chili powder to mine. A teaspoon (or tablespoon depending on whose coming to dinner 🙂 ).
Since I lost the ranch I’ve hunted for nearly 30 years I have a way bigger chance of eating beef this year…chipotle good with that too tho…A bright side to everything..RalphModeratorSeptember 7, 2020 at 4:38 pmPost count: 2545RalphModeratorSeptember 4, 2020 at 4:47 pmPost count: 2545
Might be good idea for experimenting to have have string plenty long and use the timber hitch method of attaching string to bottom limb. That way you can tie/untie that end for adjustment.When you find out what length works then you can make/buy new string ….
You can search “archers knot”… all kinds of info

I have my cock feathers 90* but neither of my jigs fletch that way. They’re a bit out of whack. Maybe some shoot aligned as such but that’s not my choice. So I never glue my nocks on permanent to start with, I use just a touch of glue to keep them in place during the fletching process.
When I’m, thru I pop the nocks off and then glue them to the alignment I prefer.
As far as first goes, I see no reason as to which, I just always start with the cock feather so I don’t get confused when fletching different colors of feathers.
