    Facebook Archery Score Pad

    I know some people here use this application but I just thought I would push it a bit more to people :D It was made by a member of our club Matthew Brown. It keeps your records and averages by season, there is a monthly league for every round and a team ranking for every round. Currently it's...

    Point Length

    Sorry if this has come up before I did a search and didnt find anything. I need to know the length of a 110gr x10 point and a 120gr navigator point for the bigger arrows [assuming that it is a different length from the ace point]. Need to buy some arrows online you see and cant work out the...

    Crusty gnas dress code - bottoms

    I just recieved my copy of AUK. I read a letter in the back and it got me thinking. The first thing I thought is that the editor is totally out or touch with young people and made a snide comment that only men complain about the stupid gnas dress code. The second thing is what people think of...

    Push, Pull, Expand

    What do GNAS coaches teach? The Pull, the Push or Expansion? After reading through Total Archery last year and the Heretic Archer this year it seems an important part of the shot sequence but I never hear even a whisper or words similar from GNAS coaches, so it got me thinking what the current...

    Why did merlin change to wood grips, in the old days they said that a razor edge would be a perfect grip and their bows did have that kind of feel, so why the change to chunky wood? Does anybody know why?

    Samick Power Ring

    The power ring. Is it cack or is it some new science unknown to academics that can improve you wellbeing. I have a feeling its crystal healing in bracelet form... Probably the power rings you buy in xxx shops are just as useful for archery... Not that I have ever bought one... I'm good at...

    Moving forward

    What realistic changes would you like to see made in our sport? I'm just dreaming but... I would like to lose the traditional flavour of recurve and compound shooting and try and bring it closer to being a sport - losing the robing hood and lord of the rings image that tarnished archery into a...

    Samick Extreme

    These dont seem to be very popular which is strange, maybe because only Alternative sell them.</p> They are?very well made, with a fantastic pearl white finish. They are as smooth as G3, as fast or faster than G3 and a good ?100 cheaper! Everytime I see someone with G3 I think "fool" ;) They...

    Cartel Triple Button

    A few people in my club bought this to save money, what a mistake its total junk! It's made of super cheap metal and falls apart, in true Cartel old school style. Sometimes you have to spend money to save money, should have bought Shibuya ;)

    Beginner achievement

    Well done to board member Jamie aka .jpg</p> He hasn't been shooting long but for the last few weeks has shot nearly every day, and with only a little help bashed out a 526 portsmouth, while tired and his friends making jokes to put him off. Well done.</p>

    Precision Archery (Book)

    This is a book?for recurve and compound. Don Rabska has a nice section and there is one or two good sections about compound form, but overall I think other books do a much better job. It's a bit jack of all trades master of none.
