    Default Vegas, Men's unlimited-Championship. 299 you're toast.

    Vegas, Men's unlimited championship flight is one tough flight. A shooter knows at the moment his arrow sails into the the 9 ring, it's over. There is no catching-up, and the field is not coming back to you. The thoughts that go thru your mind at that moment; the hours of practice, all the hassel in the airports, all the money spent and no chance of winning. These guys are tough to be able to endure this.

    I agree. Bad part is , if you do not shoot 300 with 30xs you still might not make the shootoff!!

    Just goes to show how good these guys really are.

    It would be nice if there was a standard diameter for arrows, maybe the diameter size of an easton 1714 or 1814(used just for example). I know the big arrow manufacturers would never allow this because they are large sponsors of tournaments and have a lot of control over standards. Other sports such as golf, baseball, tennis have use one size ball.

    Not true....you can still get in with a 299...BUT only one. A 599 gets you into the Lucky Dog shootoff. Winner of that makes the shoot off.

    But on top of that Xs in the Championship division DON'T MEAN SQUAT....other then the person with the highest X count each day gets $1000 from B-Stinger. To make the shoot off all you need to do is shoot a 900....doesn't matter if its a 900 with 30 Xs or 60 Xs or 89 Xs your in the shootoff. Indoor Nationals and in the flights and other championship divisions Xs matter.

    For what? All of those companies that make big shafts make little ones to. I shoot CX and they have big giant arrows but they also make Nanos which are about the thinnest arrow on the market. But trust me everyone in that group is shooting the same size shaft for the most part....if they aren't that's their own choosing. You can't compare ball size....first of all it's a different sport....a better comparison is ball size vs TARGET size. Everyone is using the same size target. In baseball not everyone uses the same size glove. You gonna tell a CF or 1st baseman he has to use the same size glove as the SS? You going to tell Phil that he can't use a 64* wedge because someone else isn't?

    But if you think that if they went down to even the International arrow size of 9.3mm (2315) that these guys wouldn't shoot the same scores your VERY mistaken. I shoot with Braden G and his scores on that face are the EXACT same with his CX 27s as they are with his 9.3 arrows. THE EXACT same...In Nimes a month ago in his qualifying round (60 arrows) he missed the X 4 times total....even if he shot is outdoor FITA setup with his Nanos he would still shoot a 900...his X count would just be a touch lower because the shafts are so much smaller. You can fit 10 or 11 of my Nanos inside the X ring on a Vegas face (I just checked). These guys shoot the bigger shafts because its allowed and everyone else is. I remember one year at Indoor Nationals Jesse B shot his X 10s because he knew that after a few ends during the shoot off they were going to inside out scoring. Cousins did the same thing last year. Arrow size does not matter to these guys....but you are seriously at a disadvantage if you stay with a smaller shaft if everyone else is shooting the bigger shaft. When the $ is on the line you would be stupid to not keep up with the Jones'

    When I said big arrow manufacture I was not referring to the arrow size but the size of the company making the arrows, yes I know easton, cx, and others make different size shafts other than the big line cutter shafts.

    Easton only makes that shaft that big because GT came out with them.....Easton sells more target arrows in the FITA market then they do over here. They have a 9.3 ruling...if the NFAA wasn't run by a bunch of pansies then there would be no 2712s to begin with. But a few years ago when the MEMBERS voted to go to a 9.3 size shaft the NFAA was afraid to man up to Easton.

    However many shoot a 900....there is no maximum # of shooters. If 10 people shoot a 900 then 10 people will be shooting in the shoot off. If 40 shoot a 900 then there will be 40 people shooting.

    Then it really does matter how many Xs you shoot. 1 lucky guy gets to move on . If there are 10 of them that shoot 299 then the one with the highest X count moves on right?

    I know you get to move on if you shoot 900 but what about the lucky dog?

    Just take a look at the results as of today.

    All these guys stand at 599. Just different X count

    No...Xs don't MATTER until you get to the shootoff. Even for the Lucky Dog. They shoot off. They don't just give it to the guy with the highest X count.

    Three rounds into the final rounds and 18 are clean.

    Getting down to the nitty gritty now.

    Lucky dog should be quite the tournament in itself.

    Braden, Broadwater, Brooks, Wills and Hopkins with Macarthey just to name a few good ones.
