    IMO, the Eclipse was one of the best risers for the price, ever made.

    I don't have a routine. In fact, I hate routines. I just make sure my gear is always ready to shoot, and I shoot whenever I feel like it. Fortunately for my archery, I feel like shooting just...

    I'm certain everyone would LOVE to shoot straight limbs. If only the manufacturers could deliver straight limbs. ;)

    This is an excellent question, and I wish I had a good answer for you. However, if you can teach effectively in other areas, that will translate directly to teaching archery. A lot of my experience...

    I noticed the shape of the dowels to keep them from rotating and immediately thought "nice job!" because that's one PITA I could have lived without on the Hoyt risers. The different thickness...

    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.

    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.
  19. 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.

    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.
