    instructions prior to first clout shoot.

    Hi Karl. Thanks for the clarification. We will have longbows, barebow recurves, recurves. flatbows and compounds. I think clout shooting is one of the best ways to learn how to shoot any bow. I am not saying that it isn't without risks; specially compound and a beginner, But, get that...

    instructions prior to first clout shoot.

    Hi Karl, Thanks for that. The same link was sent to me last night direct to my email and I didn't see your post till a minute ago. It is a great document. And thank you for your efforts. Out of interest.... what does "Tagged Thread" mean? I have heard the expression before but never bothered...

    instructions prior to first clout shoot.

    Thanks all for the help. It seems from what has been said, that there are no " clearly defined " instructions that must be given. So, it isn't a case of; I haven't found the instructions; so much as there aren't any. Ben, I agree with you about the interesting discipline. Very helpful for...

    instructions prior to first clout shoot.

    Hi AndyW Thanks for the thought. I read that but all it says is that first time clout shooters must receive instructions, but not what those instructions should be. I've attended enough clouts to know what archers have to do. But I wondered if AGB had some special instructions that they require...

    instructions prior to first clout shoot.

    I am trying to find some help with giving instructions to archers prior to taking part in their first clout shoot. I could not find anything on AGB website. Perhaps I was looking in the wrong places. Thank you.

    From the Lions' Den - A freestylers' journey.

    Nice post. When others want the "best " for you it is not always easy to keep a still tongue. The good intentions flow out. It's your archery, and you have to get out of it what you want. We can only guess at what that really means. I imagine some will err on the side of saying something...

    Pressure button springs

    Hi KidCurry, That is interesting. I am trying to understand what it indicates regarding the way the arrow performs.If I use my own words, perhaps you can correct any ideas I have, that are not what you were saying. It would seem that a slight change in stiffness makes quite a change to the...

    Pressure button springs

    AndyW it would be interesting to know if spring tension is as sensitive as some think. Too hard, will cause the bounce James Park mentions. Too soft and the button tip can move for the slightest reason and the arrows launch in different directions shot to shot. Anywhere between those two will...

    Pressure button springs

    I think Olis is right about some archers not understanding what the button is really for. It can adjust centre shot a lot easier than carving away the riser or packing it out. Changing brace height can affect arrow matching if there is a slight mismatch to correct. James Park's work on arrow...

    WA18 six ten end

    It looks to me as if KidCurry has aimed the first arrow dead centre, then cleverly aimed the other five just touching the central one, at 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 o'clock around it. Thus avoiding Robin Hoods while reaching maximum score.

    Old sniper trick : use the tall finger on the trigger.

    AndyW that makes sense, with the sharper string angle to contend with.

    Old sniper trick : use the tall finger on the trigger.

    I shot recurve, for several years using that method. But, I would say it is a method of drawing the bow or a way to hold the string, which avoids nock pinch and a sore index finger. I wouldn't describe it as a way to trigger a shot with a recurve. There's no trigger to activate with the tall...

    Old sniper trick : use the tall finger on the trigger.

    Interesting stuff. I have seen archers using that finger with a release aid. It also helps with getting a stable draw hand when using a wrist strap release. Jerry RTD uses that finger ,I think.

    Great stuff. It's good to have fun while shooting arrows; specially when the event brings a sense of cooperation to the table.
