Cool. Very cool. I have to say, I love the carbon riser, be interesting to see what you make of yours. I did soften the blow of my costs a bit by immediately selling my old riser, and a whole bunch of other stuff that I'd been hanging on to for no particular reason.
My old riser - and pretty much everything else saleable - has long since found a new home.
One thing moving about a lot teaches you (My 2nd year in Amsterdam I had 13 addresses in 12 months!) is to de-clutter frequently. Even though I've been stable here in t' north for nearly 8 years now I'm still pretty ruthless about getting rid of anything that isn't immediately useful.
Yeah, really looking forward to having a carbon riser, thought that would be at least a couple of years away, but sometimes, just sometimes, the universe smiles on you. It'll be the end of the month before I can actually shoot with it but hey - patience is deffo a positive trait when it comes to archery, innit?
- Especially to score a top-end riser for less than I was planning to spend on an intermediate one!
Emma - The one I'm buying, I don't know where it came from - but it's only a couple of the Euro-dealers that seem to have it at all so it prolly did come from one of them (like almost everything else we buy) originally.
Brilliant, well done, on the 500 and the motor! She's very cute.
I had a good tournament on Sunday, shot 461 (Portsmouth), which is 30 points better than my best tournament last year, so very pleased with that. Since I've been suffering with the injury issues, my target was 450, so smashed that. Would have been more, but two-thirds of the way through I discovered my button had worked itself loose. D'oh!
I did have one brilliant arrow though...had a bouncer, so got to shoot that one again as the only person on the line, and with everyone watching me, drilled it straight through the centre of the 10. That's the arrow I'm most proud of all day, tbh.
Took hubbie along to his first ever archery compo, and he only went and won a trophy! So all round, a great Sunday afternoon. Next one, in two weeks (if it goes ahead), is a WA18, so we'll see how that goes. Target score will be 350, hoping I can better that.
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 red should be ok for that...first ever Frostbite (if it doesn't pee it down, obvs), so anything will be a PB!
