I may be a bit of a dinosaur re. the following but does anyone think same as me regarding the Commonwealth Games. I can't get my head around the Archery comp. these bows have double or treble strings,reflex action,pulley wheels,tele sights,wind adjustment gauges,counter balance weights front and rear plus other thing I can't figure out. When they do shoot from approx 50 yards[don't know the ranges]the arrow drops like a rainbow! Perhaps an Archer can explain it to me. Have we lost the plot here,although I only made the reserves in the RN team at Bisley we had no Tele sights or wind gauges, just aim and fire. Considering the English longbow men could put an arrow through a helmet eye visor slit from 50 yards and a galloping Turkish archer could do the same from 50 feet on horseback,I don't see this as true archery. I guess I just don't move with the times but it did look weird when they lifted the bows.
