    I'm sure it's too late to buy, but out of curiosity, what's the purpose of the little outrigger? I can't seem to visualize how the bow sits on this type of stand.

    Trouble is, it does make a difference. So far all responses have leaned toward shooting to your dominant eye.

    I don't shoot 70 meters, so I can't verify whether it does or doesn't. I just learned years ago to leave that wiggle room so when you're at full draw the nock points snug up against the nock but not...

    You need some wiggle room so you don't pinch the nocks when the string angle is at full draw.

    Thanks for the review. I have a set of Avancees coming now for my wife's bow. With so many to choose from, it makes me feel better now that I know I made a good choice.

    You typically don't have to *choose* nocks other than perhaps picking a brand or just being aware of whatever comes with the arrow. The string can be adjusted to fit later.

    Change to a finger sling. A loose sling will force you to open your fingers wide to keep the sling in place on your fingers until you get over the fear of dropping your bow.

    Considering you didn't tell us your draw length or arrow length, I don't find it odd at all. What I find odd is how we can judge anything accurately with only partial information.

    I would have gone with 1525 or 2030

    The shafts you have seem way too soft, as evidenced by your problems with getting them to tune anywhere close.
