Response:

On FITA Field is one marked and one unmarked round. On IFAA Field all rounds are marked. One round are 28 targets with four arrows. The distances are from 20ft to 80yd.

Response:

I did a little feild shooting with my recurve and there was no real need to change any of it from my FITA setup.  Actually because of the quality of products that we normally use for FITA you might be a little better setup than some other shooters.  I found that was true with my setup.  Most of the guys I shot with used aluminum arrows and at 60+ yds they had problems if there was a little wind.  Where my carbons with little fletches were not as easily pushed off course.

Response:

yeah, but if you miss with one of your carbin arrows it could be an expensive replacement… especially with limited spine sets like the ACEs and X10s, Hyperspeeds etc.. — Ewan Oughton www.archery2k.com

Response:

but the same happens in a FITA.  Either place if you miss you are going to have an expensive replacement.

What kind of FITA compeitions do you go to!? I doubt you could hit a tree in a FITA round, but I’d say it’s possible in a field round. If you miss and it hits the grass it usually does no damage. — Ewan Oughton www.archery2k.com

Response:

I don’t remember ever hitting a tree so I never even thought of that but I know many people who have and your right it does usually ruin your arrow.  I think that it’s just one of hte chances you take. archeryking "Ewan" – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text -> What kind of FITA compeitions do you go to!?

We used the same equipment for indoor, 900 round, everything. You just have to site in for all the yardages.  And for hunter and annimail rounds,  adjust a little.

FITA field is shot in NAA tournaments.  The 2001 national field will be held in Washington state.  The distances are 10 to 60 Meters on the marked round. 5 Meter increments.  The unmarked can be anywhere from 10 to 55 Meters.  I tell people to use the fastest arrow that they do not mind losing. Field shooting is a lot of fun. Don Casteel "Ewan" – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text -> Hello all, > I am an olympic style recurve archer, and want to get into field archery.

Trees are not that bad (at least the arrow normally ist still in one piece). ROCKS on the other hand, are worse Far worse Jens

Ewan, PLEASE, it is terrible to read  with your broken quotings, the fullquotes and the new text over the old article. Please, remember, not all archers have english as their motherlanguage. What do you mean with  *faster*? It is not to see, what you are talking about. — Sven

Response:

Don’t you lose accuracy, if you reduce the brace-height?   In the field, accuracy is more important than speed. Charlotte Ewan > faster > — > Ewan Oughton > www.archery2k.com > why drop the brace height? > Archeryking > "Ewan"

>Don’t you lose accuracy, if you reduce the brace-height?

Why would you? In general, lower brace height makes the bow more stable to shoot. Miika Aulio

Response:

as far as I know – faster = less forgiving, yet I won the Irish Open with a 68" GM with a 7" brace height. The limbs sounded a bit funny, but I liked it. — Ewan Oughton www.archery2k.com

faster = greater arrow speed. my apologies Sven. — Ewan Oughton www.archery2k.com – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text ->faster > Ewan, PLEASE, it is terrible to read  with your broken quotings, > the fullquotes and the new text over the old article. > Please, remember, not all archers have english as their > motherlanguage. > What do you mean with  *faster*? > It is not to see, what you are talking about. > — > Sven

Sven, To be fair, he’s at least being consistent – everyone in the thread is simply replying at the top, so you have to read upwards not downwards. The reply was: faster — Ewan Oughton www.archery2k.com

> why drop the brace height? > Archeryking

Translation: Archeryking: "Why drop the brace height?" Ewan: "[Because it makes the bow] faster." However, I totally agree with you that replies inserted *after* the question are *much* easier to read!  And there’s no need to quote the entire conversation to reply to one sentence… Regards, Jonny
