So what's up with this guy we shoot with who always seems to have to shoot realllllly close to the connector line between the ibo 11 and the asa 12. Now we shoot asa rules, why can't he just go ahead and shoot a good 12 if he really wants one.

I'm thinking he's shooting there just to see how we will call it, which is usually out but I don't know, maybe I'm getting worked up for nothing, after all we're not shooting at round 12 rings anyway.

Connector Line

Most people call that the PRO side of the 12. You have more room for error when you shoot at the connector line.

I sure wish I was good enough to say, " I'm gona make them think about this call "! I've always understood it that the connecting line was treated the same as the rest of the 12 ring. Either it is touching or not. But I do understand that some calls can be really tough to make.:slice:

Its the same score at the connector as the center of the twelve but it sure gives you some room for judging errors! If he can shoot good enough to hit the connector everytime be glad he isn't shooting at the 14 everytime!!!:):):):):)

I always aim at the connector! Maybe because if I miss, it's usually a little low!

I hold on the connector area most of the time so I have more room for error on judging yardage. If the target is under 35 yards I hold on the center of the 12. The connector line is a part of the 12 so it is scored the same as if you hit dead center of it.

??? 10 + 12 = 22. Bounce point for hitting the connector, so 23?

Anyway, great idea! Let's get with the ASA for a new scoring rule.

I happen to aim at the connector line 80% of the time.

Never seen this promblem of calling the arrow. Its touching the line or it is not.

I shoot there because Im not as good as you:D

Yea, Randy did that some to us the other day at T.O.
Some targets I'm just glad to get the "connector line" that connects the target to the atmosphere.
Enjoy the trip and ask John about his change in classes for KY.:D
