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.

Only archers are fool enough to want to make a composite with natural materials and man made materials, and then bend it repeatedly...

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

Man seeing that video makes me wish it was spring so I could be back at Baltimore again.....

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. ;)
