Who is going to do it? Young Stephan Hansen holds the World Record of 150 points in an elimination match for both Compound Men and Compound Junior Men. That is a mean record to hold. Not only is there no 10 ring for the compound archers (just a 20mm X-ring) the competition to reach it first is fierce! In South Africa, I have recently seen 4 archers hit 149’s. Patrick Roux is a machine, Beyers de klerk has been working slowly closer ...

So I went to practice this morning in the rain. The practice this week was mainly focussing on getting my form back, surprise releases (blank bale) and aiming drills. Today was literally the first day that I actually put a target back up. I just took an old indoor target and put it on 60yds (55m) to have something to aim at. I started with the first 36 arrows or so just aiming at a spot and not setting my sight. I was more concerned...

This morning was bloody cold! Pretty sure it snowed somewhere because the gusty wind was cutting through all the layers of clothing I had on (ok, it wasn't many layers... We are in denial about this thing called winter here in Africa, after all!) Anyhoo... The cold wasn't the problem, but the friggin wind was driving me nuts. Gusty from the left and completely inconsistent. **HOW DO YOU SHOOT IN THIS?! ** I know that it's one of ...

Loving this rest!
Lots of Pro’s shoot blades, and there is nothing wrong with drop aways either, lots of pro’s shoot them as well. But the blade requires you to be smooth on the draw. Rip the string back, and the arrow just bounces off. It’s maybe a bit “Zen” (The ‘way of the blade’) but I felt I needed something where I can’t cheat. So acquire a blade rest I did!

This weekend was the first “official” outing for my new specialist, and I was ready for action! I had the bow set up nicely, and it was feeling good in my hands (maybe too good?) the arrows were flying straight and true and I had great hopes for posting my best scores to date! However… you know how cockiness can bite you in the tuckus!?

We have all heard about the dreaded “Target Panic” and how it can cause grown up men to crawl into a foetal position and cry uncontrollably while calling for their mommies… Well, I am here to tell you there is something worse. A silent killer that sneaks in and destroys a good scoring round, and what’s worse… you may not even know that it has struck! I am talking about that one errant shot and what happens to your brain when you d...

It's been a few days since I hurt my shoulder. I have been very careful, and worked on it every day, so today I decided to give the bow a go. In a sense, It was a good thing. I took it very slow, and very controlled and actually shot a very, very good score. I did, during my down time, review the changes I have made to my bow concerning weights. I added about half my current setup extra, and went from 10oz in front to 18oz and my sid...

Had a pretty decent 720 practice run this morning over at Archer's Edge. Slight wind from behind did catch me out (most shots high) but the constant right average punished me a bit. I am pretty sure this has more to do with the angle I was standing on, because last week I tended to leave everything left... well I hope it's the angle, and not my anchor point shifting around!

Balancing out your bow...
Stabs, Stabilisers, Sticks, whatever you call them, they are actually pretty handy!
