To me he looked like he was overthinking the shot.


That's what I saw. Looks like he's lost a couple inches off his guns too. Was that his usual high 50-60 he was holding that long?

I wonder if Rick's wild looking release is related to his positioning the string in the middle of his first finger pad - in front of the crease? Seems like it would put a lot of tension in the forearm and be more difficult to get rid of.

Man, that sucks. Can you imagine knowing you're good enough to win and making a shot like that?

Here you go Frank. Here's a clip of a few pirates at the Baltimore shoot. You've got PA archer and Yohon up first on this clip.

There were 2 shooting yellow and they can both shoot, Joe and Yohon.

I'm guessing it was Yohon he was talking about. Mine was the release that makes Rick W. look like an Olympic shooter! :oops:

That Yohon guy has a release as smooth as a baby's a... Well, you know what I mean. ;)
