    IFAA Traditional Recurve Bow class

    I have been looking at the rules for this new class and in particular the following:

    "The arrow shall be shot from the hand or from the bow shelf. For protection against
    wear and tear, the shelf may contain a thin plate (leather or felt patch against the
    riser) and a piece of felt, rug or skin (or similar material) on the shelf."


    Would I be right to assume that you will be allowed a match/cocktail stick behind the arrow plate to centre the arrow on risers cut well past centre?

    Or several layers of leather/felt.

    The description states a thin plate but Im not sure how they expect you to tune an arrow to a bow cut way past centre with a thin plate? I'm sure it's just the wording but it's always best to check I guess

    As they don't specify the thickness so they can hardly DQ you for a too thick strike plate. Somebody tried to pull me up on Longbow Inspection over my strike plate being higher than the arrow, I asked them to show me where it says that in the rule book. Always take a rule book with you to Bow inspection.

    I did bow inspection at World Indoors, about 5 Longbows came and complained that I passed a Longbow with Metal/wood riser section(before 2 piece TD was allowed), I told them to go and read the rule book.


    Who thinks up these rules? Shield Fletch only, what difference does Parabolic over Shield make apart from aesthetics

    It's a shame they created a new div (IFAA have way too many already) I would have preferred they made Bowhunter Rec a wood riser only and leave the Carbon/Metal risers for Barebow, same as WA3D.
