    Poundage progression?

    Hi people,

    I was wondering what sort of timescales people have taken to progress to a reasonable poundage to shoot 90m/100yds?

    I've been shooting for about 18 months, and am currently at just over #30 on the fingers (I'm a little dude with a short draw), and I feel I'm shooting pretty well for distances up to 70m (my last 2 rounds handicap came out at 38/39). Am I a little impatient to get to 90m considering the shortish time I've been shooting? I'd really like to try and get enough poundage to make gents rounds a viable option maybe next year and try and get up to bowman, but I dont want to sacrifice form to do so.

    just curious.
    -Si

    I would say that much depends on how often you shoot and for how long at each session.The other aspect, has to be how comfortable you are with the weight you are currently using. If you are just comfortable and find longer rounds(more arrows) a bit of a struggle......leave things alone.

    I'm hoping to up it to a couple of times a week soon (work permitting).
    Hopefully shooting more will help me out (and the usual reversals etc at home). I keep eyeing up those compounds though.. must beware of the dark side!

    Increasing poundage is logical if all other things are in place. If there is a posture/alignment issue( I'm not saying there is...) then extra draw weight can make things worse.

    Poundage and ACE depending on face shape. Small distance between eye and anchor point might mean that poundage alone won't help. I have about 39.5 on the fingers and needed ACEs just to make 90/100.

    yeah, I've sort of got in my mind to consider ACE's for next year. I might even try and push the boat out and upgrade my TXB's for some HEX5/6's, but I need to be pretty sure of my weight when I do! Mmmm... shiney..
