D&DH Equipment Issue

Postby ranwin33 » Wed Jul 22, 2009 4:05 am

I've gotten about half way through the new equipment issue and I just want to say GOOD JOB!
 
I think last year some of us complained it seemed to be nothing more than an advertisement for various manufacturers.  But this year, all but one article I've read so far, actually discusses the use of the equipment.  The article Arrows, What's the Perfect Weight by Bob Robb has one of the most complete discussions on FOC I've read.  Very good job.
 
I'd still like to see a "report card" on various equipment, much as they do in Field and Stream, but all-in-all a good job D&DH.  If the decision is ever made to "test" equipment, I'd be happy to offer my services.[:)]

That was a good article on the arrows, but overall I guess one needs to be a real "gizmo geek" is really get the most out of it.
 
I, for one, wouldn't have paid for it on a newstand.
 
And I know I said this before, but I do it again.......
 
Hey editors, how about at least a HALF PAGE that deals with  traditional bows and equipment?  [&o]

I think they should have an entire section dedicated to traditional equipment and techniques.
It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.
