    None of this is to say that those who lack significant proprioception cannot achieve success in archery, but they may need to exercise both patience and persistence that the "proprioceptive" might...

    Sure. That's a given. No way to teach or learn IMO.

    Archery is a fine mix of both feel and structured technique. One cannot ignore the other.
  3. Proprioception - a significant determinant in an archer's potential.

    Teaching today, I found myself explaining what proprioception was, and why it is - at least in my mind - significant in determining at what pace an archery student (or any athlete attempting to learn...

    I suspect you were using the old delrin AAE spacers then. No way to break one of the new adjustable ones.

    Yes, I'm at a serious psychological disadvantage when I can actually FEEL my index finger touching the arrow nock, and when I realize the contact between my index finger and the nock is not only...

    I didn't need to.

    Tony, do you realize how many arrows I've shot in the past 12 years at 70 meters?

    Neat video. Not sure if it's promoting "barebow" per se, or just what 99.999% of the world's population thinks of when they think of "archery."

    I'm sure that someone in Hoyt and someone in...

    As do I. And in addition to the best training I can give them, I want to be sure they have every equipment advantage allowed within the rules. What coach would knowingly send their archer to a...

    Bob, my spacer is even a bit thicker than Brady's but that's because my fingers are longer. When you grasp the string and draw to anchor, the angle created by the string forces the fingertips toward...

    I've still yet to understand why anyone would simply decline to use aids like a spacer or ledge, in a division that allows them.

    Maybe those Koreans could shoot even higher scores if they...

    I guess I still have a lot to learn before I can toss my ledge and AAE adjustable spacer. :D

    Maybe someday I'll graduate past these training aids. :P

    I'm not sure if someone offers their personal experience, that it's the same as "joining a debate."

    Good point.

    I actually know several archers who've had to switch hands, and still were able to shoot at a high level. One of them was a JDT archer I worked with at the original camps, the others...

    I've learned to shoot left handed because I have so many LH students, including my wife and daughter. I set up and can even roughly tune their bows for them.

    It's not that hard.

    BTW, both my...

    Well, they're not "exactly" parallel. The tail end is a tiny bit smaller than the shaft just 2" ahead of it.

    Please everyone, stop confusing trad with barebow. They are not the same.

    I was involved in testing the prototypes for CX and have had many discussions with the staff there about the several designs that we tested. There were a few designs I tested that never made it...

    I figured that's where this would head. Stash, you really need to spend some time around better barebow archers. ;)

    I'd love to see a before and after comparison with an archer like Oh or Ellison or Garret from 1 to 2 rest arms.

    This is squarely in my WWBD? file (What would Brady/Butch (take your pick) do?). ...

    I'm just talking about tapering the nock end only. I believe this is what's done with the NPX and SST's.

    This might go the way of men's shaving razors before it's all said and done.

    Of course, if this is what our archers need to build their confidence, then so be it.

    Nano Pro Extremes and SST's are full carbon tapered shafts. As far as I know, they only have a nock taper, but they accomplish their intended purpose - to offer more clearance for finger shooters...
