    They tend to be cheaper and that can be weighty consideration when you start. But remember you get what you pay for.
    I started to use a wrist release when I found out that I so used to opening my fingers to get the shot to go that I almost opened my fingers and sent a hand held off down the field from then on I decided that a wrist would be a good idea.

  2. How Stiff is Your Stab?

    I have been experimenting with the positioning of the tuners on my Clickers long rod. It's a 4 tube stab like a Beiter but there are no rubber bits between the tuner clamp and the carbon rod. I have positioned the tuners at short intervals near the riser and longer intervals as they move towards the weight end. This effectively gives me short stiff regions near the bow which carry the greatest load, increasing the stiffness of the long rod.

So I decided that I wanted some thing even longer and settled on a Martin Scepter III. 43 inches A to A and 8 & a bit inch brace height.
    I should say that I agree with Marcus when he says that there is no such thing as a 'forgiving' bow, But I would not like to shoot a ...

  5. Am I Still Punching

    The last few times I have shot have been some thing of a revelation. I suppose it all started when I drastically changed My stabs after a session at Perris Archery with Lima Gimwood. I started to use a single back rod with a lot of weight on it instead of twins and stability improved a lot.
    I was not ready for the side effects. The better stability was prompting me to shoot faster, snatching at the trigger. I think the bow was settling on the gold quicker and that was the cause. So this afternoon ...
