News groups are cool when there arn't a flood of get rich quick postings!
One can learn a great deal from people that frequent the groups. These people are alwasy glad to
give advise and help fellow archers. There have been numerous times when I have asked
questions and proptly received advice. In addition it's a great place to find out about events as well
as to meet archers around the globe.
Since I sold my Martin Lynx recurve, I've been shooting the Hoyt Gold Medalist or (TD4+). I personally think it is one of
the easiest and best shooting bows that I have tried. Currently I'm using the Hoyt Carbon Plus limbs @ 44#, 68".
I'm using a fast flight 18 strand string with a Zebra Twist (looks cool when the string is released).
The stabilization on my bow consists of a Shibuya V-Bar, Easton ACE carbon stabilizers, and a doinker on the center rod.
I use a Shibuya sight with a Shibuya ring. The button is a Beiter, as well as the clicker, and nocks. I shoot ACC's 3-04's 680's with 70 grain points
and 1.75" spinwings. The rest in an Olympic by Cavalier.
I've been shooting seriously now for over a year now. I saw myself progress steadily over a short
time and it has really felt GOOD. The last tournament that I went to last September (Pacific Coast Championship, Sacramento, California, U.S)
I shot an 1165. This was my first major tournament and it took me a few ends to get aclimated. This showed on my first distance 90MM.
I shot a 224 (don't laugh) 304 @ 70MM, 302 @ 50MM, and on the last day a 335 @ 30MM. Then in the Olympic round I made it to the quater finals
where I matched up against Rick McKinney. I'm not even going to say what happened there...guess.
I must say that being in that tournament taught me a lot. My scores are going up every time I shoot a practice FITA. Now that I got a month of from school (thank God !),
I'll get to practice for the indoors. :-)
Be Cool! and Shoot Well! :-)
