    barebow first class

    Decided to try barebow last month as my longbow form had slipped and I struggle to hold up my recurve bow with a long rod on. Anyways managed to get my 3rd 1st class score yesterday with a WA70m. I havent really achived what I wanted from it though, which was to be able to spot what was going wrong with my release for LB as my draw and release are very different but it does make a change and I somehow dont feel the same mental pressure I get with recurve.
    So, LB I am bowman, barebow 1st class and recurve? Havent even got a 3rd class score this year as the 2 times I have shot have failed that badly. i think I will try without any bolt ons other than the sight and see how it feels.

    Congratulations - sometimes the switch from one bow style to another is exactly what you need to help with an issue you may not even realise you had or to keep archery fresh and challenging.

    I experienced something similar with recurve, hardly ever shoot it as such now just mostly as a barebow because I enjoy longbow & AFB so much in the nice weather.

    I meant to do that - honest ! !
