I always hit the "new posts" button as soon as I get here and do not really see much difference besides color schemes.
Where do I find this button?

Re: Trigger tech recall

I don't know what to do. I have 2 2-stage triggers. It appears that only one is part of the recall. Never shooting a single stage, and being quite comfortable with my 2 stage, I'm not sure if I should just keep shooting them as they are, or ask TT to replace both. I bought the recall one from Danny ...

Re: Trigger tech recall

Does anyone know if this includes two-stage triggers, and if so, will they be repaired, or replaced with single -stage? Really don't want to lose my two-stage.

Re: Firenocks......

Well said Wildcatter. I have 2 dozen arrows with battery end caps already installed, plus 9 f-style circuits ready to go. I keep using the same one for 5 deer over 3 years. I used flat nocks. Why do you use capture nocks.

Re: Just Curious

I am one of the "Lucky" guys to have ordered from Ebay a C2 crank for under $50. Still haven't gotten it yet, but I know that it make take some time to ship from China. USPS tracking said it was scanned in China April 1st. I have filed with Ebay to start the process of getting a refund, and they hav...

Re: Just Curious

Finally got a tracking number on the cheaply priced Ebay C2 Crank, and it said that it just got scanned today in China. That does not make me feel good. We will see.

Re: Blob vs rinehart 18-1

I have a Rinehart 18-1 (Blem) and 2 Blobs. The Rinehart is light in weight and it didn't take long to start shooting thru it with both field points or broadheads (Qad Exodus). Have shot almost as much at my Blob with both heads, and have not yet poked one out the other side, goes in 6 inches at most...

Re: FINDING THE STATIC SPINE OF ARROWS

I have an old slipper shaped, claw footed, cast iron, arrow tester in the back yard if anyone wants to test their arrows. I don't think the cattle will mind.
Just had to say it. Sorry !

Re: Lumenoks vs Firenocks vs others

If you are referring to total weight of Firenock, check back 4 posts. Used a scale from Harbor Freight. Could be off a grain or two.

Re: Lumenoks vs Firenocks vs others

One other positive thing about FireNocks, If you happen to bury an arrow under the grass or weeds or skip one off while stump shooting, you have a tendency to look a little harder and longer to recover your investment. Not a bad thing. To save a little money, skip the practice nocks with weights, ju...

Re: Lumenoks vs Firenocks vs others

Firenocks are somewhat more expensive, and there is definitely a learning curve to installing them, but I am still using the same 6 I started with over 6 years ago. At lease 2 deer a year, plus I practice all spring, summer, and fall using them. New batteries once in a while, and that is it. Took a ...

Re: Slug Gun Question

H and R "Slugster". Single shot, stupidly accurate. Heavy barrel. Comes in either a 20 or a 12.
