I have been struggling to consistently reproduce my recurve form with my longbow. I had an inspiration during the California State Field a couple of weeks ago. I decided to put a Clickety Click on my old Samick longbow that I had replaced with my Falco. Now, my Samick is a form bow. Last summer I spent a couple of months shooting my recurve with a FITA style clicker and it really helped tighten up my form. The longbow is harder on the back end and takes a bit more focus to keep from collapsing. I just installed the Clickety Click today. The Samick is the same holding weight as the Falco. I think this will really help me work on my expansion with the longbow. I can already tell.

What happens when you take it off or shoot another bow without one ?
I have this idea that if I was to set up a clicker on my bow and ingrain it's use during practice,but remove it for competition then something expected will be missing from the shot routine,with less than ideal results.

???????.

You have to use it as a practice tool. Alternate between using the clicker and shooting without to make sure you can transfer the feel. That is what I did with the clicker on my recurve. I used a FITA style arrow clicker on my recurve so I could alternate with the same bow. In this case, I will practice with both my Samick and Falco. I am also remounting the clicker on my recurve to help with my preparation for FITA field in October.
