Default wow, what a feeling!

Well i robin hooded my first arrow ever today. and all i could say is, wow! i can remember when i would see two arrows robin hooded at a range or anywhere i never really thought it was a big deal, untill i did it myself. i think this has got to be one of the coolest things i have done. now i would have to agree that is is a good feeling when you do this. i guess it just goes to show that practice does make perfect!

Congrats on the robin hood but you do know it can get a little expensive if making a habbit of it
I have yet to get one but I have broke a quite a few nocks and ripped fletching.[:@]

I got my first this spring. It is an awesume feeling. Now I aim at different spots on the target so I don't do it again. Gold Tip Pros are not cheap.

Yea, those robin hoods sure give you a boost! I was checking my setup today to be sure my thunderheads were grouping with my field tips at 25yds and slammed a BH into my nock of my field tipped arrow! It wasn't a perfect robin hood but so close it spit my arrow 6 inches.[:@] My last robin hood was about 2 months ago using field tips at 20 yds. I know better than to aim at the same spot now!! It sure gets expensive however it also lets you know your setup is perfect also!!

I too use a five spot target at the range because after the first one, it just becomes an expensive form of reassurance.

Sweet. You sound totaly psyched and you should be. A couple more of those and you'll be cursing them though. It gets expensive after a while but for your first hand that sucker on the wall. It's a testemony to consistency
