Wow, bummer, I'd love to help you out, I just got over the worst TP. Had it for over a month, but I don't shoot above 55 X's...:p

[edit]Well hold on, by 55 X's do you mean 5 spot? If I shoot in the 430's, Vegas style, does that work out to 55 X's?

If you "make" it go off, you're not shooting back tension, just cheating the release. My suggestion is to learn to shoot the release correctly and that should take care of the panic.......start with blank baling for a while to develop the proper technique.

Do a search on TP & you should have enough reading to last you till winter. You can look at GRIV"s post on this also. Read Bernie's book or Core archery. Lots of good info here.
I had TP pretty bad a few years back & I'm shooting better than ever.

The book is by Larry Wise. Bernie is nothing more than a salesman imo.

THat's what I was going to suggest, but I don't shoot 55X so he doesn't care what the heck I say.

(This isn't advice) He should seek the help of a proffessional coach that CAN shoot 55X or better consistantly.
Just keep in mind that a good coach does not have to be a world champion at his sport or game. Tiger Woods has a coach. You can bet your bottom dollar that he could beat his coach, personal issues and all, and that would be even limited to a 3 wood, 7 iron, and a putter. A coach only has to know the game and be a good teacher and motivator. How about that Bolt guy that ran the 100m record. I'd like to see his coach beat him. The list goes on and on and on.

Heresa something few people in archery seem to do, though the one that know, take it seriously.

Subliminal relaxation and suggestion. Self hypnosis.

Barry Karnikov [spelling] comes to mind as one of the best out there. Just get one of his taspes or downloads or somesuch and follow his instructions. Along the way [youll know when you are really "under"] give yourself mental suggestions to stop over anticipating the shpot and let the flow of it occur naturally.

Understand that a lot of target "impulses" also have subconcious underlayings. Well that and maybe too much coffee.

Good luck.

Pete

I have both books. Bernie's book(idiotproof archery) has some good info in it, just got to get past the ads for his stuff.
The ads I can handle, but to listen to him bash others products, only a few booths away, :thumbs_dothat makes him a salesman. Btw Ray Ray, I misread your post. Thought you said Bernies book Core Archery, but you actually said OR Core Archery. Sorry.
