    New PB

    Congrats, well done on all of those things! 🏅

    Bow arm shoulder shrugging up when expanding.

    I agree with Geoff - how do you draw now? I find that executing a slightly high T-draw prevents me from pushing either shoulder up; as I 'drop' the string hand down to where it should be, it 'forces' me to put that shoulder down, and other tends to not have such a problem. And my shoulders...

    The dreaded clicker...

    My hearing is occasionally a bit dodgy, so I find slightly louder noises are better for me. I wouldn't worry about it, we're looking forward to the post-Christmas trip out anyway. But thank you for the offer.

    The dreaded clicker...

    A few...? Bit baffled by having more than one of the same kind... :) I do find the Beiter to be very quiet, certainly outdoors, so louder is better for me, but I'm in no rush. We're planning a post-Christmas trip up to Custom Built in Newark, so I can check the length then before I buy...

    KINETIC ARIOS 2 RISER - Any good?

    Darren simply doesn't take the button out, so no worries there. There's enough room in his case to leave it on the riser permanently.

    From the Lions' Den - A freestylers' journey.

    We are very lucky, there's 15 clubs just in the two counties (Leicestershire and Rutland), so there's a really active tournament scene going on, plus my new club (SOOO pleased I moved!), organises all sorts of fun shoots and internal tournaments, and does just about every postal league there is...

    The dreaded clicker...

    Oh, and of course, to respond to my own original question, I didn't have to change my shot technique at all, so v. pleased with that. :) 🏹

    KINETIC ARIOS 2 RISER - Any good?

    The handle is gorgeous. Lovely in the hand, too. Nice and sleek without being slippery.

    From the Lions' Den - A freestylers' journey.

    I know you're getting a new riser anyway, but you asked for pictures of the Arios, so I've loaded them into your Arios thread. Pictures of my full bow set-up in the 'pictures of your riser' thread too. That WA18 is a bit of a bugger, isn't it? Fortunately, we have a postal league in our county...

    KINETIC ARIOS 2 RISER - Any good?

    I know you're now getting a different riser, but you asked for pictures, and I finally got some, so here we go:

    The dreaded clicker...

    One was an Avalon magnetic clicker, (Avalon Magnetic Clicker) which was far too long, it simply didn't fit in the available space, and the other looks like a Cartel clicker (Cartel Deluxe Clicker), which has had a bend put in it. That one was a little too short, because of the bend! It would...

    The dreaded clicker...

    Well, after two days of shooting with the clicker, I can report that I love it! It does exactly what I had hoped it would - stops me being lazy, and gives me that bit more consistency. One of the other club members lent me 3 different types to experiment with, which was very kind of him. I...

    The dreaded clicker...

    I always really look forward to your replies to any query, Geoff, they're so thoughtful and considered. And illuminating, too. Thank you very much. We're not shooting much at the moment - the hall is closed for exams, and the weather has really not been condusive to standing in a field - so I...

    The dreaded clicker...

    Oh, I fully expect to have trouble with it, but I just didn't want to have to change my draw style. I intend to persevere. My draw and stance are pretty consistent, but I sometimes get lazy - not tired, just lazy. I know it's going to take a long time to see improvement, and I'm ok with that.

    The dreaded clicker...

    So, I've taken the plunge and fitted a clicker! Controversial in some circles, I know. :) But now I have a question... My usual draw is to put a little tension on the bow, rise up above the target gold, extend to full draw, and then lower fully onto the gold - a classic T-draw, I think...

    Indoor longbow

    I believe arrow lube is extensively used for the warbow arrows, although the subject came up when I was commenting on the size of my target partner's arrows in competition (longbow, so no limitations on fatness, I gather). He was saying that warbow guy was basically using broom handles!

    Indoor longbow

    That sounds a lot like bosses that really need replacing...we're lucky, our club shoots mostly layered foam indoors, and we've just had a new set of those. The few straw bosses we have indoors are generally used by the longbowers, a bit more hard wearing. Although I think there is a debate...

    From the Lions' Den - A freestylers' journey.

    Lion, I've got a question for you. Just changed my sight pin over to a Tawant, which comes with a default red glo-pin fitted - do you find a red or a green pin better? Next shooting opportunity for me is a Frostbite on Sunday (school still closed for exams, how dare they!), so I'm thinking the...

    Gillo GT Riser 2019

    My Smartriser has a very neat system where you don't have to undo tiller blots in order to adjust; you just turn what they call the 'Quickclick disc' (which is effectively the tiller bolt). After every 90° turn, there is a click to tell you that you've achieved the next position. There are 28...
