    Bow Poundage

    Interesting subject this, I’ve not really seen the macho poundage thing at our club but can relate to it from martial arts where someone would get a wall bag and start punching as hard as possible right away tearing the knuckles up and then not being able to do anything for a few weeks, rather...

    Thanks Emma and congratulations on your 514 I’m hoping to find some sparkle for our club open on Sunday as the last 2 practice sessions recorded 491 and 488, not terrible but something is happening in my shot process that doesn’t feel right so if I can get away with it I’m going to sneak out...

    So after not shooting At our Thursday evening practice due to helping rebuilding target bosses today’s practice session went rather well with a 511 Portsmouth. Hopefully this means I’m starting to be able to replicate form consistently. Matt

    We aren’t doing anything due to running an annual have a go the following weekend and there being a limited number of hours people can give. You never know a few might get the bug from that

    Wooooooooo get in there, just back from a club night and only went and bagged a 506 Portsmouth sadly not eligible for the badge as I scored it on an app myself. But I’ve done it once and I’ll bloody do it again!

    It’s not just a Leicestershire thing we have archers with a permanent limb from all the badges and medals hanging off the quiver 😁 Good luck in the quest for 500 and the 252 when we emerge blinking into the great outdoors. Yep I know the feeling on leaderboards I’m just chuffed not to be last in...

    Phooeys Tales From Astride The Line

    Hi Emma, My only badge is a 30 yard 252 and that’s from the first club comp I entered, I mean no disparagement of the badge system as it does create a sense of achievement especially for archers like me that are not going to be scaring the top of the leaderboard anytime soon, it’s just the 500...

    Thanks Lion Ours is good for badges as long as you know to ask for them, I’m not all that bothered about them unless it’s something I see as a landmark myself, some do collect them like stamps but each to their own.

    So the result of the Portsmouth are in and a new PB of ...........488. Yep the same 2 point improvement carrying on from the last round, although I’m fairly sure most of what I class as dropped point are due to minor variations in draw length. But relatively pleased with only 8 arrows outside...

    Phooeys Tales From Astride The Line

    And so today is the third round of the club Portsmouth which could be interesting due to some midweek adjustments to my anchor point, which when I get it right is a joy to behold the arrow landing middlish but when I draw even a little short tends to drop like a toddler in a tantrum, here’s...

    Numbering arrows

    I’m in the process of making some longbow arrows and decided to make things a little more complicated for myself. Being an occasional scale modeller too I’ve had a bit of a mess about on windows paint and printed some water slide decals for name ( in the iron maiden font) numbers and a rebel...

    Well Saturday went better than expected a 486 Portsmouth on the 3rd session back after my lay off.
