    Thanks ThomVis for these tips, I will put them into practice at the next opportunity. As you point out, I know tension somewhere up there is the problem and hope pointers such as yours will lead me to a solution.

    Cheers, Bill

    I twanged my neck (well my trapezius) the morning on my draw arm - nowt to do with archery, just did a slightly OTT morning stretch and it went.
