    You know... if you focus on the target instead of the pin, dot or circle you won't see that movement...

    Archery is still a physical sport. To see success in archery you don't have to be tall, fit, fast and strong like in football or basketball, but there are still many physical factors that play large roles in our ability.

    Having a bow set up to compliment your physic as closely as possible helps a lot, but there are definitely some physical limitations. That being said, I believe most of the limitations in archery are mental.

    I'd like to see a guy like Xquest quantify the elements of a successful archer.

    How would you guys quantify it? Anything like this:

    70% mental discipline/training
    20% equipment
    10% physical ability

    I wonder where Kisik Lee would put the values.

    To me there is no clearcut way to quantify the importance of each. They are too closely related to the whole, reduce any one and watch your score plummet.

    Guys like Xquest devoted his life to shooting archery. He practices everday. Everyday and even now he shoots everday. That builds all those things one talks about.

    To me the game is very much a mental game, in a tournament you must be able to focus on a single shot allowing the process to happen without you getting in your own way. The ability to shake off a poor result, the potential of a personal best or winning the tournament and especially the ability to ignore fellow competitors efforts to shake you is a very mental thing..

    But without the others a strong mental game will not get you to the podium..

    For me, the lacking part is diffinately the mental aspect of it. I have just as good of equipment as anyone else and I more than physically able to shoot, however the mental discipline is not where I would like for it to be. Its coming along though.

    To me the game is very equipment oriented, although some may misunderstand this. Brand is not important strictly from the standpoint of accuracy although it may play some part in customer service and satisfaction. But if you have to modify your form to accommodate the fit of a bow it will increase muscle tension, decreasing repeatability and scores. Understanding what it takes to fit a bow and having a bow that fits you and your style is of equal importance to any other aspect of the game.. But there is much more to the importance of matching equipment to the archer and the venue than this..

    Yes DB I forgot the mental part of it. But by the way I last year I shot like 20 something 60X's in a row. Yes it was just practice cause I don't really shoot indoor tournaments. I do know struggled getting those 60x's in practice when I changed bows that just didin't hold as well or shoot as good
