First experience with a bow was in 1986 during a wonderful vacation at the Club Med in Guadaloupe in the French Antilles.
The G.O. was a beautiful girl from Oyonnax(F), she was shooting a Yamaha, Yvonne was her name and she always said to me "ouvre tes doites!" (open your fingers).
After practicing archery just during my vacations in 1989 I decided to dedicates more time to this wonderful sport.
My first contact with the real archery was with the club where Andrea Parenti (one of the best Italian archers) was shooting, his father was the responsible person within the club for the new comers. The result of this first contact was that I decided to postpone my involvement with archery, in fact the guy was scaring me with bow to buy, competition to do, compulsory training and so on, while for me archery was just a way to relax.
Soon I started again my search for a club with better profile (for me) and I found "Arcieri dell' Ortica" -Novellara (RE) Italy.
My first serious bow was a Samick 68" #36 and Easton X7 1916 my arrows.
The first FITA was done more to check what was all about than thinking about getting a decent score, as a matter of fact I still feel ashamed for the result (899) but that was just the beginning.
As the results were improving but not at the expect level I move up to the Hoyt TD4 and my best score was 1155, the following move was to the Radian, than to the Avalon and finally to the Exfeel.
Now that I left Hoyt I can say Hoyt I liked you but I will never get back.
Main problem I experienced with Hoyt has been regularly the impossibility to get the string perfectly aligned, and the Avalon didn't help me very much as the system to control the limb alignement is not easy to control.
The decision to buy the Exfeel was more to have a new toy than looking for something better and with my great surprise when first I strung the bow I saw it to be perfectly aligned, and the first feeling even before having the bow well set up was absolutely positive.
Confirmation of this is that after 10 years of no improvements of the score I made my best during this indoor season.
Now I am one of the happy owners of a FB 5.99, don't worry I am not going tell you fanstastic things about it but try it you won't regret.
It's a nice small world and it makes me feel very good.
