Post by Lone Wolf on Wed Aug 27, 2014 12:50 pm

A new age Aboriginal club (nulla nulla) ?
The latest Japanese novelty sex toy ?
Something that fell off the back of my car - but hasn't been missed yet ?

Put those thinking caps on ~ all suggestions welcome.. tongue

I think Victor has already nailed it:

Least ways, it's the same picture.  I took archery in university, but I still don't know what a stabilizer is.  For me the sport was just three things: a bow, an arrow and a target.

I'm betting you use a hammer and pound it into the ground. It humms in the breeze, and that calms your nerves. Hence: stabilizer. ::D::

Cool   People will already be used to seeing the longer stabilisers that target archers use (to compensate for imbalances and 'torquing' (twisting) in the bow when shooting..), as seen in the Olympics, even if they didn't realise what they are at the time :



However, for field archery and hunting, those archers who have the same problems need shorter stabilisers, so as to avoid getting caught up in the shrubbery. In addition, Trophy Ridge is one company that likes making their gear look just a bit funky (Hoyt is another..):

Ok, now I see it. It looks like a perforated, semi-hard penis on the lower arch of the bow.

Does the girl who is shooting the bow have to wear matching fingernail polish?

THIS is the bow that I was using @ the Newcastle (Australia) Uni' Archery club, C.1990 :



THIS is how it looked after a recent "upgrade" (a work in progress..):



A Recurve like this wee beast is probably what many are more used to :



NOW, back to finding next week's wotsit...   Smile

"WOODS ain't wood, Sol' !"

Traditional style longbows and recurves require the bowyer to select, season and shape the timber for the bow, otherwise the bow won't work too well, and will likely break after shooting the first few dozen arrows...

Likewise, strings have to be woven and correctly matched to the bow, and the arrows need the correct "spine" and length, to get the best results from the system..   What a Face
