    Some Level 3-NTS coaches are worth $100/hour and charge $20 (or sometimes nothing) and other Level 3-NTS are worth $20/hour and charge $100. It pays to check a coach's references before you shell...

    Pretty much. One thing I learned during my 20+ years of "trad" archery is that many traditional/barebow shooters think they are invincible. ;)

    Probably because they've learned to use the "force"...

    Sounds like it probably would, which is most likely an area you could get better. ;) If you can't learn to switch that brain off and just shoot, you'll find yourself spinning in place for a long...

    Okay, I won't tell you. Mostly because you already have your mind made up.

    Why can't these events just follow the rules that all the participants are used to already? Pick an org. and go with it. Any org.

    Couple of thoughts for you Pete...



    We're trying to get barebow back at Outdoor Nationals. I working on a committee right now that is preparing a proposal for the board. I hope Outdoor...

    The limb pockets do look like a supersized bottle opener. LOL. Not sure what's with the wings. But the dual-bolts is very, very clever.
  13. You're absolutely right about that! A man can't...

    You're absolutely right about that! A man can't serve two masters, much less three, and I routinely rotate between Olympic, barebow and compound. Mainly because I have students who shoot all three,...

    Four times in a row, with an Olympic rig. ;) And that's just day one of the Oly. trials... :D

    Ben, maybe you should just shoot the trials barebow?

    In 2011, Joe McGlyn was our 16th place...

    Makes me no difference. Just get out there and break 300 at 70 meters four times in a row on a single day, and report back. :D

    Should be no harder than shooting 144 arrows from a barebow, I hear.
  16. They both work. I'm not sure I could tell the...

    They both work. I'm not sure I could tell the difference between them. I've used both and never really noticed.

    Gary, you can answer your own question if you just rig up an Olympic bow and go fling a few at 70M on a windy open field. ;)

    I wasn't going to point that out... :D

    In the months leading up to the 2nd leg of the 2012 trials, I lost 16 lbs. I went from 204 to 188 between January and May of that year, and it was all...

    Chris, as usual, you are correct. It was a general statement. I'm perfectly aware of what my capabilities are, and after 10+ years competing at a fairly high level with both Oly. and barebow, know...

    I completely agree.

    Of course, the least confusing book of all is Rick's "Simple art of Winning." ;) That's always where I recommend someone get started.

    GMarz, my first outdoor target round was a metric 900 I shot for the Illinois State Games, 3 months after switching from barebow to Olympic in the fall of 2013. I shot a 814. The following May at...

    I'm sorry Gary. I cannot reconcile those statements.

    I have many years of experience doing both, at what I consider a pretty high level (finished in the top 3 in the U.S. in each discipline, at ...

    Honestly, the books will probably confuse you more than help you at this point. However, they could be a valuable reference later.

    I'd recommend you find a level 3 NTS qualified coach and pay the...

    Pete, shooting an Olympic bow is physically more demanding than compound or barebow. You won't convince me otherwise, because I shoot all three and my body can easily tell the difference.

    Honestly, it was very sad to me to see how many of our top shooters essentially stopped competing after the trials events. Guys like John Burkett, Scott McKechnie, Guy Krueger, Shawn Rice, Mark...

    Agreed. There is no way you wouldn't have to retune after switching limbs. I have to do that with 2 pairs of ILF limbs now.

    Also, if the limb bolt is the same length, the ILF fitting would...

    Being skeptical of ANYONE making a 3-person Olympic archery team is just playing the odds. It's simple statistics. Being skeptical is actually the REASONABLE reaction. Telling someone they have...

    The 1st leg of the trials events are always an interesting mix of folks - young AND old.

    I remember the crowd in '04 well, guys I'd shot with at ranking events, kids I'd shot with, etc. A few...

    Ben, how much weight are you pulling on your barebow, and how much do you plan to start with on the Oly. rig?
