  • Lardy, if you right click on the link to the attached images in the upload pop-up box as soon as you've up-loaded, then click 'copy link location', click on insertimage.gif and paste in the link then this happens..

    You end up with the picture visible and the attachment link underneath. Mind you, it won't resize them. :)

    Some nice pictures in that lot.

    No, UKIFAC not really my bag to be honest... Shooting at roundels makes my eyes bleed! :D We, (Valley Bowmen) are hosting the UKIFAC in 2015 though. Should be interesting!
    Are you heading to the Dunbrody 10 year anniversary shoot this coming weekend? 100 target course is going to be epic! Hog roast on the Saturday night, too! :cool:




  • Afraid not, will be working so I've the next weekend off. :(

  • A few pictures from the Irish Open 3D Championships. Picture quality in the woods wasn't great and the resizing has made them even worse. Sorry.

    As can be seen from this selection of top archers, competitive archery is a sport for all ages.




  • Pictures from Stage 2 of the Indoor Archery World Cup held recently in Bangkok, Thailand. Stage 1 was held in Marrakesh, Morocco. The last two stages will be held in 2015, in Nimes and then Las Vegas. While indoor archery is a mental pressure cooker at this level, Vegas takes it to a whole new level.

    The format is that Day 1 is a practice day and competition takes place on days 2 and 3. The indoor divisions for this discipline of archery are Recurve and Compound.

    The first day of competition is 3 ends for warm up and then straight into scoring. The first days competition forms the Qualifying round and the top 32 archers in each Category (a combination of division and class, the age/sex classification so for example, recurve women, compound men) then go forward to the day 2 elimination rounds. Here, they are progressively reduced from 32 to 16, then 8,4 and 2 for the finals.

    The distance is 18m. The number of arrows, 60, shot in ends of 3. Two halves of 10 ends are shot with a break in between.
    Targets are the inner halves (6-10) of a 10 ring multi-colour target, 3 faces arranged in a vertical line- one arrow at each.
    For compound archers the 10 ring is different to normal.
    Whereas a recurve archer has a 9,10 and X ring in the yellow centre, the compound archer has a large 9 ring and only the very central-most ring, normally the X, counts as a 10.
    For recurve, an X is scored as a 10 and the total count can be used in tie-breaks.

    Maximum score is 600 in qualification.

    The top mens recurve, Min Byeongyeon from Korea, shot 597. The next 12 archers were within 10 points of him and within a range of 0-5 points from each other.
    The top ladies recurve, Sungeun Jeon from Korea shot 589. As did the tied second and third place. The difference between first and joint-second was an extra 10 shot. All three ladies shot identical scores in both rounds. Six of the top 8 ladies were from the Korean powerhouse.

    The top mens compound, Mike Schloesser, shot 598. Second and third place shot 594, fourth and fifth shot 593, then 592 and 591 for sixth and seventh respectively. The difference here being that the top 7 archers were from either the Netherlands or the US. You have to look to 19th place to find a Korean. That won't last long. The Koreans are only recently competing in compound.

    The strength of compound archery in the US was underlined also in the ladies class, with 5 of the top 9 shooting under US colours. First was Erika Jones with 587, followed closely by Toja Cerne of Slovenia with 586. Top Korean was 12th.

    Once the top 32 are identified, the remainder of the competition takes a head to head format, shooting ends to win points to attain 6 or more points, with #1 shooting against #32, #2 against #31 and so on.

    When the arrows ended, the mens recurve gold was taken by Im Jiwan who initially placed 17th, and beat fellow Korean Gye Donghyun into second. Brady Ellison came third and Jean-Charles Valladont fourth.
    The ladies recurve final was won by Sungeun Joen of Korea, with Khatuna Lorig of the US in second. Third and fourth places also went to Koreans.

    Braden Gellenthien (US) won the mens compound with Peter Elzinga (Ned) second. You have to look to 7th place to find a different country represented.

    Erika Jones (US) continued well winning her category, Toja Cerne finishing in fifth place.

    Full scores here.

  • Just finished a set of arrows I was making for one of our club members... First time using the new cresting machine...

  • Very nice, seems a pity to shoot them. :)




  • One, two and three marked as well I see.
    Very nice.
    Are they cedar?




  • One, two and three marked as well I see.
    Very nice.
    Are they cedar?

    They are 11/32, Sitka Spruce, 40-45lbs. Weight matched to within 6gn. :)
    They are full length, dipped 3 times in Polyurethane, then crested and sealed twice with a water based clear coat. Helically fletched with 4" right wing turkey feathers. Took about 4 days from start to finish. They drying of the poly is the longest bit.

    They wouldn't be my cup of tea to be honest, colour wise. But that's what was asked for.




  • Here are some traditional arrows that I made a while ago. Traditional hand cut nocks with water buffalo horn inserts. The feather whipping is done with strong button thread as I couldn't get hold of any sinew at the time.

    Good work. What weight did they end up?

  • Good work. What weight did they end up?

    358 - 364. Heavy enough to be honest, even with the 70gn piles. I put some of it down to them not being cut down... And the rest to them being the dregs of the 11/32 that I had left! :D

    Have another box of 100 on order, so not looking forward to sorting them! :D




  • Here's an experiment I was trying out for a while... T-Tips Vs 3D points. While the T-Tips worked fantastically well, they don't really justify the €2/ point over the normal 3D points. Plus, they are impossible to fit to wooden shafts without an Arrow-Fix tool. T-Tips are normally reserved for Bamboo shafts.

    11/32nd, 40-45#, and weighing 360gn finished? Are ya missing 100gn?

    Where do ya buy 100 shafts and is there any value to be got buying that many?

    Nope! They're only about 285 to start with. Granted, some in the box do go as high as 330/ 340.

    I get all my shafts from 3D Archery. Good value when bought in bulk.

    Excellent work there. I made a set of bamboo arrows a while back and had to use several different brands/styles of point to get a fit I was happy with even within a dozen shafts. I've never used the T-Tips, but they look the job for bamboo. €20 or so + delivery/dozen.

    If you want to try the T-Tips, I've 2 bags of them here you can have for €20! :)

    I've tried making Bamboo arrows before and must admit, failed quite miserably! Grinding the notches and then getting them straight was too much of a pain. Then remembering to nock the slim end try find a point to fit the fat end! :D
    Never again!...




  • Here's a sample I made up today... Think this is the cresting I'm going to be using myself from now on. :)
