    See, take a look at all of those recurve and longbow archers. Heavy arrows, low speeds and they STILL hit the target, the STILL can hunt with those bows. I have a longbow myself and i can hit a circle of 25cm in diameter at 18 yds. This is not for practice, just for fun of cause but it is possible.

    Speed is no solution, it is just a way to draw off attention from other things. :/
    Simon,

    I think ou missed my point. With your long draw speed is not something you have to fight for. You can shoot very heavy, stable arrows and still have decent speed whether you want it or not.

    I know there are obstacles, too. Like a limited selection of bows and other little goodies. It's not all heaven being on either side of the draw length spectrum.

    I got it Barry, but i am tired of this as i am not interested in speed at all.

    If i could i would change to a bow with 30" dl. But i would have to bend my arm a lot and this does not work very well for me, even 31" is too short. 31.5" is okay, with long loop and a bent arm. Nothing comfortable for FITA..

    I understand, Simon. FITA is so much more about accuracy than speed. I keep telling some guys here on our indoor league they don't need to shoot heavy draw weights. That Vegas face isn't going to "jump the string" and doesn't care how long it takes the arrow to cover 20 yards.

    I know from personal experience that, shooting 3D, my scores don't vary much whether my bow is shooting 265fps or 300fps. Speed isn't worth crap is ya can't make the shot.

    OK, enough on speed. On to more constructive topics.

    No, 25 cm with the longbow.

    Approx 1cm with the Compound if i have time to practice multiple times a week. Which i do not have.

    You need some more exercise with the longbow, Simon, but your results with the compound are quite impressive.
