    Serving Materials Too Slick on Tab

    I think it maybe has a lot to do with the material. I was amazed at how much slicker the Angel was than the Brownell that I had used previously. I'm thinking that the old Brownell was covering up some form issues. Or, alternatively, that the Angel is making form more critical :unsure:

    I could get the wife to take it. We're all going stir crazy and it will kill 5 minutes ;)

    Serving Materials Too Slick on Tab

    Hmmmm. There could be a connection. Maybe I'm overdoing lifting my elbow. Of course it's a bit hard to get someone to check my form at the club at the moment 🤒 I'll hold off buying serving material and reserving my strings. Shame as I've plenty of time to do it at the moment :rolleyes:

    Serving Materials Too Slick on Tab

    Not funny at all. I have been thinking about my elbow height recently, wondering if it's right. Do you think that there's a connection?

    Serving Materials Too Slick on Tab

    I wondered that myself but the tiller is set to Border specs and the nocking point is set with a bareshaft. That's not to say that its not set a bit sub-optimally for my setup though.

    Serving Materials Too Slick on Tab

    I'm putting it down to the serving being just too slick. It does give a great release, but if that's at the expense of an unreliable hook, then I'm thinking that maybe it's not worth it...

    Serving Materials Too Slick on Tab

    No, standard Mediterranean split finger. Most of the time I'm fine, but once in a blue moon my hook slides up and I'm lifting the arrow nock.

    Serving Materials Too Slick on Tab

    A bit of materials advice needed. I've used Angel Majesty centre serving for a while now. I have noticed, however, that occasionally my fingers/tab slide up the string and into the bottom of the nock. I've had it suggested that Angel is too slick and a quick search on the web has revealed one...

    Cheapish training limbs

    Yes, I've generally used SF limbs as budget limbs for training / rehab limbs too, with no complaints. I've had mixed experiences with some SF kit, but the limbs have always been fine.

    Should all club activities be cancelled?

    Whilst I have no intention of doing any indoor archery for the foreseeable future, and I will obey the instructions from AGB because it seems the right thing to do, I am finding this ****** annoying. This is basically the insurance company saying that they have been handed an excuse not to pay...

    Archery.... is there a need for further change?

    My point is more that loads of people are in AGB target / AGB field or AGB / non-AGB clubs without drama or poaching each other's memberships. Loads of people are in more than one club, and nobody raises an eyebrow. It's mostly when people are upset about something already that they change...

    Archery.... is there a need for further change?

    Loads of the members at our AGB target club are also members of a second field club; sometimes AGB, sometimes another organisation. Not many completely defect; when they do it's generally down to pre-existing disquiet with the club or with AGB.

    Archery.... is there a need for further change?

    Yes, AGB does do all sorts of styles but the truth is that AGB does have a massive Olympic recurve bias. The fact that so many of your AGB members didn't even realise that AGB does field illustrates that rather dramatically.

    How do *you* peg your bosses?

    I don't know what kind of pegs you use but if the ground is genuinely hard / rocky then you would probably be better off with Hard Ground Pegs aka Rock Pegs - something like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Blue-Diamond-Hard-Ground-Orange/dp/B00BQZDL0Y?ref_=fsclp_pl_dp_1 - they're made from...
