    Interesting article, however there are some inaccuracies / exaggerations. 3 hrs and 1000 arrows ? That s 1 arrow per 11 seconds. That is slow when compared

      Interesting article, however there are some inaccuracies / exaggerations.

      "3 hrs and 1000 arrows"? That's 1 arrow per 11 seconds. That is "slow" when compared to SCA speed shooting, but that's a fast shot for Olympic recurve. If he's in fact aiming for 2016, he would not be shooting this fast, only to risk developing bad habits.

      "40 hours to build an arrow"? That's what I found in reference to hand-made all carbon arrows used in the very short custom flight bows (with overdraws). They are often as short as 9-10 inches.
      That's not what he's posing with. Most likely they're ACE's or X-10. It's definitely an Easton logo on the shaft.(these are an aluminum/carbon composite)

      Amazing! Good for him. Just shows you don't have to have the strongest bow to be effective.

      Of possible interest. The 500 meter distance was shot by a 14 year
      old with an under 35 pound bow. He trains three hours a night
      shooting 1,000 arrows.
