    Couple of my "go to" training drills; 1.The "draw, hold and let down". I draw hold on my gap point for a slow count of 5 then let down. This helps with mental control of the shot 2. The Vertical string. I hang a vertical string on the bale and shoot for it. I pay no attention to elevation of...

    I switched to my dominant eye (left eye) 4 years ago. Dropped down in draw weight from 70# to 33#. Found out about something called “string-blur” and that I was over drawing to the side of my face. In my mind I was thinking “what the heck are people talking about, I don’t see no string-blur”...

    2 weeks ago i started on my off days shooting a 50 lb bow 2 days a week for 30 arrows each session being very strict to keep my form( it takes me 1 hour to shoot the heavy bow and still keep good form). For indoors i have been shooting 32 lbs and I usually shoot about 38 on my fingers for field...

    Sent my backup Mybo Elite back to UK due to warranty issue, so set up my Bosen Stronghold 25" barebow as a target rig to train at home. Bosen Stronghold 25" silver with full riser weight on + Cartel hunter/barebow heavyduty rest + Shibuya Dx plunger + Davis System sight with damper + Axcel Sjef...

    That's the thought that went through my head today as I managed to fit in mid-morning, mid-afternoon and early evening sessions. It was a good day because all last week and beyond I had been shooting the 45# Hawk to the point I managed to hyper-extended my index string finger and had to take a...

    In preparation for Lancaster, and knowing I can't make it to the club as much as I'd like to in the next 3 weeks, I need to focus and use my 16 yard basement range to the maximum benefit I can muster out of it. I printed off the FITA faces at the correct ratio for 16 yards to give myself as...

    I hear a lot from people... I don't do spots It's not for me It's too boring I get nothing out of spot shooting It's not fun I am of the opinion that it should be everyone's greatest training tool, and on top of that the fita face. It is a set distance, flat ground, and consistent lighting...

    So what you think of this Phil? The claim it's a way of eliminating negative brainwaves associated with TP and freezing on target.

    I'm in recovery mode for the foreseeable future and am looking at "Quintessential 10# Training Limbs". I tried 16# SF axioms,but they are pulling in the mid 20's with my risers and draw leangth. The Quintessentials appear to be Samick Sage compatible. I would like to have a riser that would...

    Finally I found a coach, my old friend Mauro De Mattia. I'm enjoying shooting more while fighting my TP. He proposes this very effective unusual exercise, you draw and hold while making a squad. Then get balance back and make an aimed shot at 50 meters. A lot of self-control...

    Hi all, I've been struggling to get my point on just below the gold and then to release. It's as if my brain always wants to release when the gap is a distance below the gold... basically a "feel good gap." Even when I try to draw with the point over the target, it's as if my body wants to...

    Hi all I'm relatively new to all this. I was wondering whether there was a list/tips of varied training techniques for instinctive shooting and shooting in varied positions to improve hunting/field 3D? Reason I ask is just went to my local field course and they have added extra stakes to...

    I picked up a compound bow on Friday, it sure is a bit different from the trad gear, and I honestly feel like I am cheating!! It is set at 64# so it is a bit different than drawing my 45# recurve, but the let off is like holding nothing :) I had the peep etc set up for me, and I sighted it in...

    I'm working on a project in order to promote archery among children. The idea is to design a chap bow that works close to standard bows. I have been working on PVC bows for some time and now I finish a 20# target bow that shoots pretty good un to 10 yards as you can see in the picture. As the...
