I'll send you the invoice for the advice

Although I think things already went up a bit huh? Don't worry all you'll have to buy from now on will be stuff to add onto the bow and at your own pace. Its just the initial shock all that's left is a few tremors.

Good luck and remember to have fun!

Maicros, remember Rohans' comment and think about who you're talking to ..............

In my defence, it's an addiction.

So my stuff finally arrived toady =D

Initial happiness was quickly overridden by complete confusion though =/
I still have no idea how to attach the sight to the bow, 'm not sure the rest is on right, not sure how to set the button up right, stringing is difficult (I still have a broken ankle, 'm gonna blame the cast for that one).

Any advice on how to mount the sight? Could find literally no advice on the net. It's a Jooming Scorpion sight, looks pretty identical to most other sights 've seen

Bow sights are generally mounted using a standard sized and spaced bracket.

If ya don't already have it, download the reference guide here: http://www.archersreference.co.uk/download.html

Page 27 will give ya some good details on setting up the rest and the button.

Its an old enough file, but archery hasn't changed much since it was written and we all use it still.

Welcome to archery - the bows have a personality of their own, and its not always a nice-guy personality!

Haha the bow can be a dick all it wants as long as it can hit the target as soon as I finally get to use it, which is next week hopefully!
