Irish Olympic target shooting

Further Retail Archery

It’s like buying your way to… well, slightly less basic kit so that it looks very obvious that you’re the problem in the system 😀

Bought a bowscales a few days ago and it finally arrived, so I was finally able to get measurements of draw weight; I’d already taken measurements of the nock-rest draw length earlier. 29lbs @ 28″ is what it works out to, +/- a few percent. So with that sorted, there was a flurry of stuff ordered today:

  • A dozen 29.5″ Easton X7 1914 arrow shafts
  • Nibb points, hotglue, Beiter nocks and Kurly Vanes for fun (and their various tapes and such)
  • KAP Magnetic Rest (just a rebadged W&W rest really)
  • Cartel Triple Cushion Pressure Button
  • Cavalier Magnetic Clicker
  • Spigarelli Clicker (for herself)
  • Cartel RX-104 Bow Stand
  • 2 Cartel Arrow Pullers (his’n’hers)
  • Cavalier Finger Sling (for herself)
  • SF Elite Backpack
  • Cartel Sight (also for herself)
  • Cartel T-Guage

And a few new target faces for the club.And I ordered a new tab yesterday. I was looking at the soma saker I and II models, then noticed they had cheaper versions for a third of the price, so I ordered one because the tab I’m using now looks like someone attacked it with curling tongs.

Hopefully, that should be all the kit I get this year. Come spring, a heavier bow might be in order, but I feel… sated, at least for now 🙂
