RE: [SCA-Archery] Re: In praise of self nocks
- I am 40 or will be in 24 days. Sighhh. Anyways I aint young, aint old but
aint young neither.
I cant wait to show up on the line with a proper war bow and a funny draw
and let the comments roll. No one I have seen or heard of shoots a really
heavy bow with that draw to the shoulder style.
I will be making nydam style arrows to go with the heavy bow, the self nocks
are actually enlarged so that it appears they used a pinch grip.
There is no reinforceing I can see short of some mention of some bronze
nocks. So it is just plain wood and a nicely tapered arrow.

Yep, see you are already a few steps ahead of me. I think you are little
younger too so that
will probably help. I'm getting to an age that I better take care working up
weights to avoid serious damage. I'd be happy getting up to 80 pounds
especially if I am
drawing it 30 inches.
