    Many sports require similar skillsets to archery - pool/snooker as you say, golf & darts being some others. it's all (obviously) about hand/eye co-ordination and timing, mental discipline, as well as being 'target focused'. Ive played all the above to a reasonable level, and the words 'paralysis by analysis' come to mind - when you're playing well you dont really think about what your doing, it just happens, (you are 'in the zone'), and although practice ingrains the right (or wrong) habits, unfortunately most of us cant give our best to order every time, but the overriding mental thought i believe all sportsmen should have is to know what you are trying to achieve, and planning how best to get there, which should come before all else - the words hope & luck never figure in it.

    Heehee one arrow per hour isn't going to make much of a impact on the rest of the competition.

    The difference being that getting to that "two pint peak" in archery is generally frowned upon.

    Back on track, I think the main thing that lots of sports including golf have in common with archery is a lack of tension, you need to be in complete control but completely relaxed in order to execute a perfect release or swing. Any tension stops the smooth progress that we need, a high jumper or sprinter will tell you the same thing, about how they feel "loose" before giving their best performance. Yes Johnh it is exactly the same in the bedroom, tension is the number one cause of poor performance and loose of control ......or so I hear, never had any problems with "tension" myself so couldn't comment .....what dear ?....no no this is something completely difference.......no I told you I was just very tired that's all..........
