    Default ASA Marked yardage question

    Member here ask me this question. Maybe some here can give him some good input. Thanks!

    Would you set your bow up with a field archer set up(smaller diamentor arrows) or would you set the bow up with the larger diamentor arrows like most 3ders for line cutting ability?

    I never shot in an ASA event and not knowing ASA rules but I would think that it would depend on the longest distance for a shot and the venues the shoots were at and their topo layouts.

    If I did not have that info I would probably go with a mid diameter, light arrow like an Easton Lightspeed or something along those lines. Split the answer down the middle...

    Good question.

    Is 50yrds max. Of course the 3d targets are marked but cant be seen with naked eye. My thoughts are the field type set up would be best. But for me its a toss up. Levi and most top gun pros shoot those larger diamentor arrows well out to 50yrds.

    It is all preference. I've seen the line jammers and I've seen the mid diameter. The ones that impress me are the guys who step there with those Nano's and continually lay them in the 12 and 14 rings. 11 if IBO. There are definately some shooters! Since you are asking about marked yardage you had better bring your A game. There will be plenty of spot shooters with very high scores, to me the unmarked game is the most fun for 3D. Otherwise you are just shooting FITA.

    For me, it would depend on wind.

    Windy, I'm going with small diameter shafts.

    Large dia and lots of weight in the front. Not worried about speed since you know the yardage and the large dia for line cutting capabilities. In most pro/am situations the wind seems not to be that big of a factor.

    ditto, you know the yardage, shoot the largest arrow you can legally shoot.

    I think the X-ringers are too fat for the marked yardage class. ASA had a maximum arrow diameter (it said nothing bigger than a fat boy) for that class when they released that info at the Classic last year, but I am looking through the rules I can't find it anywhere, so they might have taken it out. Might want to double check that before you tell your buddy to shoot a fat shaft. A lot of what they told us last year at the Classic never actually made it when 2009 actually rolled around soooo....

    No, they took out any arrow size restrictions so x-ringers will work. You are right thats what they had originally planned but didn't quiet make it to print.

    Many a field shooter have dotted at those speeds. I really hopw more field shooters come shoot the known yardage. ASA does one heck of a good job putting on these events.

    Yes, besides that those 12's and 14's are a WHOLE lot smaller than anything but the closest field targets.

    There is another reason besides "line cutting" that the big dogs hunt with super fat shafts. The fatties hog up a whole lot more of those little rings and really get some nice bounce-outs. Especially with pin nocks. It becomes a game of strategy and planning.

    The reason to use the knitting needle arrows is that they are less effected by wind.

    If you don't have to worry about wind, then the fat arrows will give you a little line cutting advantage.
