Instructional Archery Videos – Archery GB

I found mention of the following videos, in Archery Talk, an online archery forum.These videos are on the Archery GB website, which is the official website for archery in Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
The videos are meant for coaches working with intermediate archers, but are really good for any motivated archer looking to improve, I found them to be clear, to the point and well illustrated. Find the link below:

Nock Out

Nock Out is a competitive reality TV show, 12 compound shooters compete against each other to come out with a single best shooter.

This is sort of old news as the show has been on for a while and just had their season finale yesterday, however for those (like me) who hadn’t seen it you may enjoy watching their first episode.

The show has been aired on NBC sports. I hope the show’s producers will choose to put the whole season on the web at some point (please).

The show is sponsored by Lancaster Archery and Rinehart targets. Way to step up.

Spigarelli Barebow Review

Spigarelli Barebow

Spigarelli Barebow

I’ve owned a Spigarelli Barebow for some months now. I had a chance to shoot it during the indoor season and I am now in the process of setting it up for outdoors and field archery. Below is a video review of the bow as well as shooting tests. The tests show balance with different added weight combinations.

Because these bows are often shot without stabilizers, arriving at a comfortable weight and balance where the upper limb kick is reduced is important (not for everyone but for most). This is one of the criteria barebows are judged by.

Find some facts about the 25″ Spigarelli Barebow:

  • Riser weight 3.2 pounds or 1450 grams
  • Riser, long limbs, string, plunger, rest – 4 lbs 7 oz or 2 kg
  • Integral Spigarelli riser weights – 7.4 oz or 210 grams
  • Riser with all hardware and 2 Spigarelli riser weights – 5 lbs 6 oz or 2.43 kg
