    Want to hear my absolute favourite thing about all of this? This guy will have 6 billion youtube views and all of social media talking about how awesome he is. Meanwhile, Schloesser shot a perfect WA indoor round today and he'll be lucky if his hometown paper runs a back page story about it.

    I'm always sceptical when people use old drawings as proof. The artwork was done by artists not technicians. For a recent example of what I mean, look at the recent Olympic commemorative 50p for archery. Not a good example of current best practice for hooking technique by any means...............

    None the less, it is still kind of cool ..............
    The drawings/paintings would have been done by someone who wasn't there anyway, no way correspondents in those days!

    It's good to see someone enjoying theirarchery. I think the face he pulls should be a must for all archers

    OK, so let's have a quick show of hands ..... all those who are going to modify or alter their shooting technique as a result of watching Mr. Andersen's video ....
