    On old chesnut, women & men's comps

    Thanks for pointing out that it's generally men that start this kind of discussion. I thought equality, where physical strength is not an issue (subject to some of the comments above), should be aspired to. Archery would kill for some of the positive comments that the darts has gathered (even...

    On old chesnut, women & men's comps

    Thanks TT, so there is nothing to stop a woman entering the Gents Recurve at a WR/NR status tournament - should the entry forms be redesigned?

    On old chesnut, women & men's comps

    Watched the darts last night and Fallon Sherrock was the first woman in the World Champs to beat a man. Not a freak occurance, just some really good darts by both players. Why are we still splitting the two in archery, particularly indoors where poundage means nothing?

    Rules of shooting - Vegas 300

    We've had confirmation from AGB re the scoring for the V300: The round is scored with 30 Arrows big 10, for both recurve and compound, and the inner 10 is scored as an X. An example of a scored end would be XX10.

    Rules of shooting - Vegas 300

    As far as i was aware there were no x's scored in a WA18, the inner 10 for recurve was just a 10 and only the inner 10 was a 10 for compound. The new Vegas 300 specifically refers to x's being used as a tie breaker. What is the point of setting out that you can shoot an x when if shooting a...

    Rules of shooting - Vegas 300

    The other changes to the vegas, are the Vegas 300 is over 20 yards rather than 18m (distance for the 'old' vegas). Also, the rules refer to Rule 404 for scoring, so compound scores 10 for inner ten only. But specifically in the scoring at rule 409 a: Scoring. (i) The scoring zones on the target...

    Indoor classification - why are ladies and gents scores different?

    I'm sure this must have been covered before, but I was wondering why the indoor classification scores were different for gents and ladies. eg. "C" Class Portsmouth Gents 554 Ladies 534 WA18 Gents 516 Ladies 479 etc.... The discipline is the same. Bow weight makes no difference when shooting...

    Decline of H2H evidenced by AGB Ranking list

    Hi Just reviewing the AGB Ranking list for 2017 - only 155 Gent Recurves. In 2016 - 204 gent recurves. In 2015 - 233 gent recurves Not checked the other categories. Is this evidence of the decline in clubs running WA70/WA50 with H2H? There are plenty of WA70s run during the season, but very few...

    Bow gets louder as I shoot longer

    I have found that when I first set up and start shooting my bow is nice and quiet. As the session goes on (say 3 dozen in) it gets louder. The brace height remains the same (I have checked). Tiller remains the same. All bolts seem to be tight. Stabilizers are tight. Sight is tight. All the...
