  1. NFAA 300 indoor
    While it's not indoor season yet, I thought to start a new thread for this marvellous form of self torture. Last week I decided my form needs work and dug up my indoor/ target setup. Lacking proper coaching I use the 300- round as a benchmark and a tool to evaluate and improve my shooting. I...

    Shot Two 300 Rounds Under Stress I did two 300 rounds, one yesterday evening, and another this morning. The temperature is around 35 degrees outside my parents house in Washington DC, and I deliberately didn't wear warm enough clothing. I was trying to see how well I could do under stress...

    I'm looking for a half dozen inexpensive arrows to try out my new old Hoyt TD3. The limbs are marked 55LB and I'm presently drawing at least 30+" at just shy of 30lb. So the TD3 is a 30lb step up, and may end up as long term goal "when and if". But I've got to at least try it out. So...

    does shooting 30 inch 400 spine arrows at 50lbs 28 inch draw carbon arrows seem correct?

    This year I am gaining a considerable amount of free time back "done with MBA" woohoo. I am wanting to dedicate considerable time to my shooting. I am also going to be testing equipment - different limbs, rests, plunger and so on. Is the NFAA 300 round the best standard to establish a base...

    Shot a 287 and a 290 at 70 meters today. Woo hoo. Not barebow though. Oly, setup. I can feel that elusive first 300 coming . Probably tomorrow morning !!! I have been on the shot trainer more than actually shooting the last month. Everyday. Shooting 2 days a week. Feeling good.

    Can someone tell me which target the masses use? all sky blue face, different center color, 5-4-3-2-1 scoring? size of paper sheet? can I duct tape it to my Yellow Jacket bag target? Or what do most of you use for backyard 300 round use? Going to order some from LAS, too many choices. Thanks in...

    Shot my first ever tonight. I'm about a year into archery and am attempting to shoot instinctive/split. I'm using a Mohawk Sparrowhawk 48# longbow. This was not at a tournament or at a range, just back yard. It totaled 186. The process of this brought a few things to my attention: 1) my mind...

    I do not want to stir another pot like the 17+ page "circus" that got started over on AT recently by Turbonockguy making some misguided and immediately repudiated speed claims for Black Swan bows. I know it wasn't the first dubious claims and there are some legitimately dissatisfied cutomers...

    Just got this bow as a gift. Wondering how I find out more about it. The sticker says Hoyt Pro 300. 64" recurve 47# @ 28 Serial number P13710 That number is also stamped into the wood just above the shelf. Any info would be great. Particularly a date of manufacture. Thanks Sent from my iPhone...

    I was wondering what everyone uses when shooting for score in indoor 300 rounds? What weight bow length, bow weight, arrow type, point weight, and arrow total weight. Thanks.

    Hey guys - Ben asked me to keep a running tally of 300 round scores. I'm happy to do it but, I don't want to dig through threads to find the info. If you want to be included in the running list you need to PM me this info. Date - Name - Face - Score - And where you shot it ie league, Vegas...

    We here in California will probably be starting indoor leagues near the end of October. I know you archers east of the Mississippi have some long hunting seasons, but I'm hoping this year we can get a thread going where we can compare indoor scores from around the country. I was hoping for...

    Is there any interest in bringing back the Stainless Steel 3 bladed 300 grain 300 Xtreme? One of the best heavy BH I've ever used, I paid $30 ea. back then. I feel I can bring them back and sell a 3 pk for %59.95 + shipping.What do you think. Bob

    When shooting a 300 round, after the first three or four ends I feel myself tightening up during my shot sequence, which results in some poor shots. After a few ends like this, I feel myself loosening back up. Anyone else experience this?
