Center Shot Question?

Question:
Is the center shot location sacred?  Everywhere I read that the end of the shaft should be aligned so that it’s right edge is just "touching" the string, when the string is centered on the limbs (for right-handed recurve shooters).  Is this sacred?  Does anyone shift the center shot to the right [...]

Saint Sebastian

Question:
The archers throughout the world have a gaurdian angel: Saint Sebastian. Sebastian was found guilty of treason and was therefore sentenced with a death penalty. He was to be shot by archers… So they got him out, placed him at 18 meters, and the recurve and compound archers had a ball… [...]

Aiming woes?

Question:
Hi, I’m a beginner in archery using a recurve bow (provided by the indoor archery center). The bow I’m using doesn’t have a clicker or a sight ring, so how am I going to aim at the target? The person at the archery center told me to position the nock infront [...]

Archery netting / curtain?

Question:
Hello, My son is new to archery and I’d like to make an area for him to practice, but we don’t have an area with room for when he misses the target, and hay bails are not a good solution around here. I have seen archery netting and have been told [...]

What rest??

Question:
Its time to upgrade my arrow rest, but what too?? Do I get a magnetic, a flipper, a bolt on or a stick on? I’ve been using one of the horrible stick on hook types but changed bow to an Avalon plus, shooting ICS Extreme carbons, so feel its time to change. [...]

sholder extension

Question:
One thing that has taken up a lot of my training time is shoulder extension… Looking at the Koreans, they seem to have quite a low extended shoulder…. whilst some of the Europeans and Americans [Rick McKinney comingto mind] seem to have quite a high but still extended shoulder.. The thing [...]
