Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Traditional Archery This is a well written, thoughtful text which focuses primarily on traditional archery principles. It is a good resource for those who wish to shoot instinctively and provides useful information regarding the set-up of the bow, the shaft, fletch and nock as well as a trouble shooting guide for those wayward arrows. There is little information regarding sights, stabilizers and elevated rests - the primary focus of the text is as stated - traditional archery. It also contains technical information to assist the archer in bow selection, materials, preparation, instintive technique and repair. A good resource for primitive, longbow and recurve enthusiasts.
