Re: [SCA-Archery] Re: Appropriate field points for target
- Sir Jon, How do you keep the point 'tight' in this case? The concept is
REALLY intriguing to me.
But it would seem to me, that over time with repeated impact, and
pulling from the target ... that the brad would start to wear it's hole
through the wood slightly.
And that therefore over time, the head would get a hair 'wobbly'. Which
wouldn't be good at all for accuracy.
