    I belive form is everything.
    I just got my wife shooting, started her shooting non-sights with fingers. with a coach on a recurve, FITA style. When I got her her compound she had to relearn everything all over again because she was trying to anchor under her chin.
    I showed her what to do and she took to it like a duck to water. Her form is awsome. Now she wants to try shooting with pins... time to start over, but at least her form is rock solid and she can judge distance real good.
    I think shooting fingers non-sights is the best way to learn good form. Because if you can hold your form over and over again it makes it just that much easier to shoot a release and sights.
    Just my opion.

    I'll agree with that too. I dont think anyone new to archery should start out with sights, peeps, releases etc.
    I think you need to learn the hand-eye coordination and get your form solid first.
    Then add a sight.
    Then add a peep. Then add the release. Then add whatever.
    It boosts your accuracy and confidence so much when you do it in phases that you feel good about your shooting and stick with the sport.
    And if you dont have the form and discipline down - - none of those other accessories really matter anyway.
    I still shoot some of my bows 'bare'. Some with sights/fingers. Some with sights/peep/fingers. And some with everything.
    Yes I am most accurate with sights/peep/release/stab etc but I know I wouldnt be able to shoot nearly as good (bad) as I do without still going back
    to the basic sticks & string and flinging arrows the old way.

    Just like Spiker said, start out plain Jane, just the bow and arrow that is how I taught Arrow Splitter. And he certainly can shoot well now.

    FC400 should be Martin's top hunting bow? At least it is the fastest this year I think.

    Pictures are in the other thread that you gave me a hard time about!

    I believe your right, that is the bow for choice in Hunting. Many sold at our dealer. It is a sharp looking and fast bow. Wonder what they will do in 2012?
