    true.. key point is, If you can not draw your bow while sitting on a chair..its too much weight.. one should be able to hold bow still, while drawing back with out any body sway, even while standing... If you try an shoot the moon to draw...best you back it down

    fisher; you are correct we will have to resight his bow. When I lowered the draw weight, he said to me " this is way to easy to pull back". I told him its not about how much you can pull back, its about being accurate. When I start to see tight groups, then we might turn bow up. I have been blessed with two wonderful boys who love to shoot with me.

    funny I have heard that befor. I must ask how long can he shoot that bow @ It's current weight ? amount of arrows @ a time ?
    take a look in Green with envy thread. (feal free to post up his groups)
    . Rhino is 5' 5" an 150lbs 27"draw, shoots a parker sidekick @ 40lbs.
    I know he is under bowed.. but with out 50# limbs he knows he cant have more even if he wants it.. and he does..

    I was talking to Rottzilla who lives a few miles from the Parker facility, and they're still making us send the bow back and have them install limbs, $50 for the limbs +shipping. Only has to shoot 130 yds to be legal here. and 40# is enough for this not so little guy, wonder what he'll be wearing in July?

    ElkSlayer; To answer your questions, when we shoot targets he shoots 2 warm up rounds, then 10 rounds of 6 arrows (72), that takes 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

    sounds like he shoots plenty then...back the 6 arrows down to 4.( thats the # used in field rounds) you can still shoot that time frame just may get more ends done hope his target shooting comes around,,,as i said make it fun.
    go ahead an give them one of your arrows to shoot at..watch them groups get tighter...

    We shot target lastnight and he had a robin hood. We get up this morning and he has to shoot 4H archery, and guess what another robin hood $$$$$$$$. He is shooting much better. Thanks

    We used to have a saying among the group I shot with. Quote: "Easton makes them every day." Glad to hear something is helping him. Now I'll bet he gets even better as his confidence level will go up. Just remember though, he'll have good days and once in a while a bad day. Just shoot form and don't be concerned with score.

    Thumbs up

    Robinhoods are great! As bfisher said the confidence level climbs and so doesn't the shooting.
    That is good news shoots martin!
