    Default Indoor Advice Needed

    Last night, I shot my first indoor 300 League. Had to use my X-Force 70#. Had an excellent shoot until the last 3-4 rounds and ended up with a 288 with 23x's.
    My question is, I hunt and shoot 3D with 70#. What weight should I be shooting for 300 and 5 Spot. I was thinking 50-60#. I'm new to this and kinda like it. I must've fired off about 90 shots last night and was getting a little sloppy at the end.

    I'm sure weight is having an effect on your shooting. Shooting spots is a lot different than shooting 3D. At 3D we shoot one arrow and walk. In spots, you shoot and shoot and shoot. It will take it's toll on you especially at 70#

    I normally hunt at 65 and 3D at 60-62 but my indoor rig is set at 55#

    when it comes to indoor, think about this......

    you only have to clear the ceiling.....

    I shoot 48-52 lbs indoor.....

    any less than that and I dont feel there is enough holding weight to be steady....
    I cut things up and split them down!

    Not bad at all for your first 5 spot round.

    I bet you'll gain a couple of points just by knocking down the draw by weight ten pounds or so.
