    My favourites include:
    shooting old arrows that you have no sight marks for because you don't want to risk your 'good' ones;
    shooting short stabilisers that they've never practiced with, when this completely changes the feel and tuning of the bow;

Too much non-shooting stuff, too few opportunities to shoot, too little incentive to push myself. So I long ago stopped checking how my scores compared to my personal bests. Today I was happy just to get First Class for the 10th year running.
