    Quechua Base Seconds

    one time (now ex) decathlon employee here although I bought mine long before I was getting any staff discounts! :( my opinion on the base seconds : the key is the ease of setting up and storage. there is the issue of taking down but practice makes perfect on that. also when you get the delta...

    afraid my great intention on starting back to arching was field horse bow .... then there was field bow thoughts ..... yet somehow I found myself shooting full olympic recurve. not sure how that happened although could have been worse, could have woke up one day and found I owned a compound...

    The 5 Stages of Archery Grief.

    Irn bru to a scot is like spinach to Popeye thus the performance enhancing issues ... ... and i’d like to raise at this point the sheer incompatibility of wearing a kilt (in the correct manner re underwear) in a midgie heavy area.

    The 5 Stages of Archery Grief.

    Being scottish its pretty much demanded of me that I drink whisky. well..... sort of. I'll let you into a secret ... when a scot reaches majority, he must choose something to define his scottishness. There are quite few options available ...... rabidly following rangers or celtic, buckfast, deep...

    The 5 Stages of Archery Grief.

    Last night at the club I was line captaining and watching members shoot when I realized there was a soundscape of sighs, grunts of exasperation, slight swearing and hissing (hissing?!) going on. Focusing on a couple of the more expressive members I realized there was a process going on after the...

    MMA? ... Mixed Martial Archery!

    the confusion continues ... today was asked was I training for boxing. Admittedly bloke instantly got the archery connection with the previous exercises. Thinking of taking sign saying "Archer in Training .... please ask about archery at your own risk" to the gym. its not like I'm loquatious or...

    MMA? ... Mixed Martial Archery!

    todays amusement in the gym was almost being pulled off my feet when letting the 60+lbs on the pulley down ... I dont have a low centre of gravity (no archers stabilization system around the midriff) so letting down heavy weights like this is a little unstable but this time it definitely was not...

    MMA? ... Mixed Martial Archery!

    So, working on my back strength I started a few weeks ago on a strengthening exercise that has more in common with hunting compounder requirements than recurve but hey, I'll give it a go and see what happens. at present I draw 39lbs on the fingers. My exercise using a cable machine has been a...

    [Discussion] Archery & 'Digital' Technology (What could go wrong?)

    while standing in a monsoon as we marked out the field for a comp ... I idly considered a drone hovering over the field with an underslung laser pointer. the controlling app on your phone would project points around the field for you to paint X's for target placement. It would automatically...

    Coming at it from a different direction (Oh Matron!)

    Im pretty sure there are a couple of noses out of joint in the club but on my return to the club after several years away I realized that its going to take some harsh measures to fix some of the problems. this may get a bit ranty .... ;) taking it "off line" has been tried till we're blue in...

    Coming at it from a different direction (Oh Matron!)

    when I announced the presentation format and the length ... there was some incredulity that I would be able to keep to just the 10-15 minutes max time limit so keen am I to spread knowledge. I obviously had no issues being concise and brief. 😂

    Anybody with experience of changing from Hex 6.6 to CVX / Hex 7.2 / Hex 7.5 ?

    Sorry for this post (its more an expression of :oops:). as a HEX 5s owner who has been gone from archery for a few years ... looked at the border price list above and HOLY SHIT was my overwhelming thought. Guess my hex 5's had better last a few more years!

    Coming at it from a different direction (Oh Matron!)

    So ... over the years we have run class after demonstration after class with little effect. We still hear "no-one ever told us about ... xxxx" yet no-one ever turns up to classes we run to teach maintenance and string making and fletching and tuning and lions and tigers and bears oh my! So this...
