If you could get a copy of the 3rd season Game of Thrones episode " The Climb " there is a great instintive archery lesson in that show. Even if they did skip the explanation of an anchor. :)

Yes it was ! Loved it when Arya got her Neddle back and payed back the thief! Watched all week-end re-runs and kept looking for some credit for the archery adviser, info is very accurate, all the way down to the bodkin point used to pierce armor. Will have to watch new episode again to see how Ygritte was trimming her fletchings, thought I saw smoke, could have been a hot knife, but she was sitting next to a fire. I'll check. :)

Awesome. I have a #50. I use a NAP Centerest. I'm about on my 4-5 string, now using Fast Flight, and have put probably 4000+ arrows through it. I've kept it strung for over four years. :)

Are your strings showing abnormal wear around the nock loops? Seems that you're going through a string every 1000 shots. Several of the guys reported nock groves being a bit rough, and using a fine file to smooth out the rough spots. I also leave my old Pearson strung, more limb damage occurs during stringing and unstringing, than leaving them strung causes. Haven't noticed any loss of draw weight and my ole Cougaer is at least 45 years old, no idea how many times it's been refinished, at least once, well 1 and 1/2 times, as I reworked the grip to better fit me.

Strings don't show abnormal wear, usually the serving comes apart, etc. and 4,000 is a conservative estimate. First string was the cheapo that came with it, then two B50's from a store, and now a FF string.

LOL, know what you mean, I'm currently shooting about 50 shots a day out of the BP Cougar, about 350 a week, so last month alone was over 1000. My D Merrill string isn't showing any wear, but I rarely wear an arm guard, haven't hit my arm since I can't remember when, only place it shows any wear is at the nocking point, and that is minimal, more on the tied on nocking point than on the serving. Best $10 string I ever had, other than when I made my own. :)
