    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.
    I agree most of it is mental but physical needs to be higher than equipment.
    I could shoot 60 X's 30 years ago and the equipment wasn't nearly as good as today.

    Im just saying part of the mental game is being very comfortable with the bow your shooting. My mental game is much better when I feel my bow is shooting and holding like it should. It takes away doubt that can creep in when I know my equipment is where I want it. Just like you've said time and time again practice scores aren't tournment scores. I shoot alot of 3D tournament so my comfort zone is high but I seldom shoot indoor tournaments maybe one to two a year and not very big ones at that haven't learned how to handle the nerves on a full line yet.

    You just need to tighten the red dot down inside the X ring and let it float inside the X.......a little follow through on the shot and you are in.
