Vegas 2009

I enjoyed the video of the compound shooting. My not knowing what all goes on at the Vegas shoot, so I'm going to ask, isn't there any recurve competition? Also, what is the distance that the compound shooters are shooting in the video.

Cool video but better Live in person.

I was at the shoot-off and yes I would have preferred to hear "the shot has been challenged" rather than hear the score but that is splitting frog hairs in hind sight!

What was really spectacular was the camera work at the shoot. They had big screen TV's that the crowd could watch and the Camera would scan in on the target on one TV while showing an isolated shot of the archer on the other TV. You could watch the shot execution and the result side by side, it was awesome! In those cases where the shot looked sketchy they would zoom in on it and you could really see all the detail. Yes, watching it live was really exciting, but it's great to see the rest of the world can also share in the excitement! Hopefully we'll see VS or ESPN do a similar show I know if I couldn't be there I would watch it.

Just in case the NFAA is reading this post, Please put the name tags back up so we know who's target is who's in the shoot-off.

it seems to me that all rules were followed...a judge announced his score, a challenge, a second, a third, and a concensus...great shooting from all involved!

wow great shoot off. As for the rest of the robbed not robbed having to win twice "HOGWASH" i have completed in many sports my whole life "wish i tried archery long time ago" and what happened happens in a lot of championship games. But Both shooters held there composure and performed to the best of there abilities. Hoyt simply shot 1 more x at the right time. Funny how it ends the 2 best bows on the market with the 2 best shooters that day. Magnus all i have to say is you never once congratulated Reo with out mentioning Morgan, am i mistaken? or???

side note i didn't see a lot of us south paws punching the x out lol
