RE: [SCA-Archery] Re: Shooting
- I agree... I prefer shooting where there is a flat trajectory until just
past 30 yards so that I barely have to correct for the first two distances.
However it is getting old how people on the range think I have a 50# due to
some SCA monster truck attitude. I could care less what poundage people
use... Personally, if I was going to do that I would own an 80# or above.
Ok, mild rant over... heh

It is all about what you are comfortable with and what you want. I prefer
the flatter trajectory, and I manage the 55# just fine. If a person can draw
and hold for 5 seconds without any type of shaking, I would say it is safe

- Kassai Turgul I @ 28#. Mostly to get my technique back. Will move up to at least 35# after that.

- I shoot a Samick SKB recurve with a draw-weight of 30# @ 28". It's a modern version of a traditional Korean bow without an arrow shelf. I make my own self-nock arrows and shoot off the hand. I shoot it Western style (three fingers on the string), but I'm starting to play with thumb release.-Faolan mac CairbreBarony of Bjornsborg, Ansteorra--- In SCA-Archery@ yahoogroups. com, "David" <ater_seraph@ ...> wrote:
