    Clicker for a beginner

    Been shooting once a week since January. Guys in the club reckon I should get a clicker but they recommended I get one that mounts onto the sight bar and is adjustable. Anyone recommend a decent value one? Or should I just get my arrows cut to suit my draw length and get a normal clicker?

    It does make sense to get a sight bar clicker to begin with. I went straight to a bow mounted clicker & ended up cutting down the arrows by 2" down to 30" but after getting some heavy duty coaching, changed my grip, anchor point & stance resulting in a 30.5" draw & a set of arrows donated to the club beginners box.
    Remember also when you cut arrows down the spine go's up making then a little stiffer, so adjustment via the button may well need a tweak also.

    If you are being advised to get a sight mounted clicker, it sounds like your arrows are quite a bit longer than they need to be. That is not a bad thing, but shortening them for use with a normal clicker might mean removing so much that the shorter arrows are too stiff to match your bow.
    An alternative could be a normal clicker fitted to a clicker plate. The plate extends the riser forwards so the clicker is fitted to it and clicks by striking it, like a normal clicker striking the riser. The plate can allow for a wide range of clicker positions, up to an inch or so beyond the riser. No good if your arrows are 3" beyond the riser at full draw, though.

    Thanks everybody for the replies. Can you recommend some good value clickers please? The ones that mount on the sight bar and the ones that use a clicker plate. Something below 20 please, if possible Thanks

    All the sight mounted ones seem to be over 20. With a clicker plate a standard clicker can be used. A clicker plate is just a flat piece of ally with a right angle fold along one edge to allow it to be glued to the edge of the riser.
    A basic clicker does the same thing as the expensive ones and some sound better too. I know some who have bought expensive carbon ones and can't hear them.

    And do all clickers fit onto clicker plates? Can you recommend a budget clicker and clicker plate please?
    Would this be suitable?
