So the aim for now is to bring that strength and muscle memory back up to speed and work on the magic formula of the set up and routine of the shot. The former is my main concern at the minute as I am waiting for a new thumb release to arrive and am still using my wrist release currently, so obviously my routine will be changing soon.
I'm not shooting for scores yet, not even sight marks as it's pretty pointless until my set up is finalised. I had an hour or so in the garden this afternoon at between 10 & 20 meters with very pleasing results. I am concentrating on my set up i.e stance and pre shot routine. Then holding the sight (once drawn) in the gold and trying to keep it steady for approx 5 seconds prior to release, I figure this will help my strength and stamina and keep me away from punching the trigger as soon as I wander into the gold.
I wasn't writing any scores down but after an hour I was probably averaging about 28.5 per 3 arrows @ 20m I'm happy with that for now.
Cant wait to get going with the thumb release once it arrives, and looking forward to the new Mybo stabilisers from Merlin which are out any time now, then I'll be working on the rest of that routine and finally getting some sight marks down.
