    Thumbs up How long had you been shooting before you got your first Robinhood? How many total?

    I was just wondering how long you all had been shooting before you ever split your first arrow and got a robinhood. And since then, how many have you split since you started?

    I started shooting the second week of July of this year by September I split my first arrow. Since then I have had six complete robinhoods and two others that blew the nocks off and ruined the arrows but didnt stick together.
    I had one at 50 yards, one at 40 yards, two at 30 yards, and the rest at 20 yards.
    I am guessing that this is more common than we tend to think, but none the less it is cool
    Any body else have pictures of their robinhoods? Show em' off here

    After a lengthy Archery layoff, I bought my new PSE Diablo in March.
    Got this in my first 15 shots after taking delivery tuned and set up by Old Town Archery, 7 rounds of 2 arrows @ 20 yards.

    Now I generally don't want to spend the money so I shoot different dots.

    Its been 4.5 years and haven't gotten one. When I first started shooting at single spots I ruined alot of nocks and put alot of creases in my arrows started getting expensive so I started shooting 5 spots. The arrows I shoot for indoor are pretty expensive now and this is the 3rd year with the same ones so I hope it doesnt happen again.

    I have gotten two. But I wonder how many people have gotten them using the old glue on nocks instead of the unibushing style??? I ruined alot of glue on nocks and fletching but never got one until I switched. The shot has to be perfect to one with glue on nock. Just a thought here.

    I shot 2 robin hoods with my old Golden Eagle bow the first week I owned it. I have shot a few since then with newer bows, but arrows are too expensive I now shoot multiple spot target faces only.

    20 years, I start shooting when I was 15 and left the sport for while. And last year I did my first RH. I had been nock bustin for a while, but never Hooded. My arrow sits on the rack about 5 feet from me. kinda cool I think. Costly but cool.

    My first robinhood was with 2213s XX75 glue on nocks. I still have those arrows

    I've had robinhoods with the old Beman Hunters 55-70s also, the ones that split and splinter straight down the middle. I would guess around 12 or 15 in my lifetime total. Had 3 in one night robinhooded at an indoor 3D shoot.
    Needless to say, I dont like robinhoods much anymore

    Yeah it does get expensive, but it is cool
    Well see yesterday I had decided to order some much nicer arrows and I was kinda sorta joking when I got to the range I told everybody I had about six arrows to blow up before I could order new ones. Well after about 15-20 shots I hit it dead on.
    After I get my new arrows I am sure I will be shooting at seperate spots, I would had to mess up the pretty arrows

    sadly I can almost do it on demand at 20 yards... I think I have 3 or 4 from 20 yards and I think 2 from 30 yards.

    Now I never shoot single spot targets... I have broken at least a dozen nocks, ruined countless veins and trashed loads of arrows... it just gets WAY to expensive and isn't worth it
    No I'm not dead

    Can't even remember how many. I have been shooting for 22 years and the last ten seriously. Did 8 of them this year. Have several out to 50 yards. But most of them at 20 yards. But I switched to pin nocks this (2007) and it will be a little harder to do. Here is one of them from this year.

    It took me seven years to finally get my first robinhead. Broke a lot of nocks and messed up a lot of fletching but only have one robinhead. It was cool but i don't want to do it again.


    Keep on shootin

    last indoor season I shot a single spot as i had never shot indoor before and did not know what to expect...... well that was costly and especially w/line jammers.......oh and by the way the bulldog nock collars dont work well when you bow is perfectly tuned and your form is perfectly the same everytime.....it is just too expensive to do more than a few times......

    one night I shot three in as many ends.....one end that night we had three guys shoot robinhoods......

    oh and to answer the question of how long I had been shooting.....it was like 4 years......

    I hear ya there, I hope mine hold out too. I love this sport, and when I do finally kick the bucket they will likely have to bury me with this bow cuz even when I am dead and gone they won't be able to pry it out of my cold dead hands (did I tell ya that I love this new bow )

    I tend not to aim at the same spot, unless I am shooting 40 yards or more. But I still manage to get one or two at 40 and 50 yards every summer. The coolest ones are when you are at a 3-d shoot and you robinhood someone elses arrow.

    Well I went and bought some new arrows. I got some of the big fat eastons. I had them fletched in blue and yellow to match my new bow. They look awsome. I made it a point to only buy six arrows so now I am going to force myself to shoot a five spot so I dont robinhood anymore.
    I tell ya, I dont know why it is that I shoot a single so well and a five so bad. On a single I may average about 280 on a five I am about 260 (give or take a few)
    You guys have advice for a person moving to five spot from a single? I mean I really stink at fives. I guess I just feel as acurate, maybe if thats all I shoot I will get used to it.

    I had a little trouble with 5spots when I started shooting them. I think it is a mental security blanket having the 3-2-1 rings on there too. Almost like you are more at ease. I don't know just my thoughts

    it could be related to how you shift your point of aim... are you still drilling the X on the center target and noticing consistant "pattern drift" on the other 4 targets? I still o that a lot, I'll be low on the bottom targets, to the left on the right targets... its a PITA. Basically I'm not moving to address each new target correctly.
    No I'm not dead
