    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...

    Medications

    So, over in a thread on arthritis in shoulders, there was a link to the banned substances checklist. I'm a type 1 diabetic, have been for 40+ years, so as a matter of curiosity, I thought I'd see whether insulin was a banned substance. It turns out it is in fact totally prohibited, I suspect...

    Pointless...

    Not sure if this warrants a Fonz award...it might be too common an occurrence. First indoor sesh of the season last night...I've been having trouble lately due to injury, so was looking forward to starting the indoor season. Got all set up with my lightweight bow, and started shooting with the...

    Bow release - help needed!

    Hi, another fairly noob question, I think... So, I just recently put a v-bar and short rods onto my bow. Now, my riser is itself very light, less than 1 kg, and all the extra hardware, even without any weights on the ends, has added at least another 500g. When I release, although I don't grip...

    New indoor arrows - advice please

    I'm sure this will have been asked before, but here goes anyway: I posted a little while ago about how my ACCs made an incredible difference to my outdoor shooting - is there anything comparable in terms of quality for indoor arrows, since the season is fast approaching? For reference, at...

    New PB

    Moved up now from Short Junior Nationals to Junior Nationals - shot a PB last night, 514 out of a possible 540. Pleased with that, although there were some stray 5s, and a 1 when my hat got tangled up in my string (don't ask, I've still got no idea how that happened). Not as good as my friend...

    Falling off the bottom of the sight...

    So, now that I'm getting up to longer distances, I'm experiencing what I've heard is quite common for female archers particularly; my sight pin is about to advance off the bottom of my vertical sight bar. I can't move the sight bar any further down, it's already as much like an 'L' as it can...

    Another noisy bow - please help

    So, I've been shooting for a while now with a Core Air Riser, and SF premium limbs, 20lb @ 68", wound up to 25lb using the bolts on the riser, and the set-up has been very quiet. I've now changed to WNS Premium limbs, 26lb @ 68", with a new string, and it makes an unbelievable amount of noise...

    Short Junior National PB

    So, joined ANOTHER club on Tuesday night (I'm now in 2 clubs...long story). Shot a short junior national last night at the new club, 30 and 20 yards - got a new PB, 596 out of a possible 648, with several 6 gold ends. Whilst I'm very much not a junior, I'm working my way up to longer distances...

    Wow - new arrows!

    I had no idea that a smaller arrow would make such a difference! I've been shooting standard 1716 aluminium arrows, and really struggling to make any kind of distance outdoors, combined with my low poundage (22#) bow. Had a delivery of lovely new ACC arrows on Friday, and tried them out for...
