    Titan Scope - Ring and Dot???

    I know this question has come up before, but for the love of me I can't find it. Does FITA allow the use of a ring and dot together in a Titan scope? Ta

    First time out

    Got a chance to play out properly with the longbow today and put my first longbow score in - 113 Warwick which I was very pleased with. Don't know how that compares h/cap wise as I'm more familiar with MB recurve scores, but it's a good start. Great fun too!:archer2: :slaphappy

    More PBs and great performances.

    Once again I take HelenT to a tournament and she puts me to shame! Not only did she annihilate her 720 pb on Saturday at Lilleshall but also got to the semi final and finished fourth in the H2H - her first ever attempt at a H2H! It took FieldArcher 606 to beat her in the end. Then on Sunday her...

    Hell of a weekend!

    There will be no living with her soon: This weekend at the Lancashire Champs, HelenT has managed to shoot her first 1100 FITA and WIN her first FITA star on Saturday! Then as if that was not enough, go on to her first 1000 Hereford and came second by only 1 point after a great battle all day...

    MB, finally

    Finally made MB this weekend. After several years of nearlies and getting one score per year I got my second and third scores this weekend at Timperley with 1219 and 1198. Only found out this morning as due to a running total mistake I appeared to have finished the second day with 1188, it was...

    1200, finally!

    Finally after several years of 1180 odd FITA's, this weekend I pulled my socks up and broke the 1200 "barrier" at an inter county match with a 1217. Think I felt more relieved than anything, I always believed i could do it, it was just a case of proving it.:jump:

    Porstmouth PB

    Not for myself but for HelenT. After struggling to consistently hit 400 only 2 months ago, Helen has recently broken the 500 barrierand last night raised her pb to 534; a huge improvement. Its amazing what practice, hard work and properley matched equipment can do! Well done honey :beer::applause: x

    Wrist injury?

    Wondering if any recurve archers out there have ever had severe tendon damage in their drawing wrist caused by shooting? It isn't something I have ever come across. I ask is because HelenT had tendon damage in her right wrist last year caused by a car accident when the other driver was at...

    Rapid Progress

    Just thought it might be good to show off how well my partner HelenT has been progressing recently. This is Helen's first full season (last year was her first but for a variety of reasons she didn't get to shoot too much). Helen has managed to progress from a handicap of 60 and being...

    Nexus limb fitting

    Just wondering if anyone else with a Nexus (or Helix) has had any problems with the limb fitting of non-Hoyt limbs. The problem I have is that my KG limbs won't under any amount of persuasion or adjustment fit properly into the dovetail/hardlock bit of the pocket and sit a mm or so out...
