Default Talking to your equipment.....

does any one ever have a conversation w/your bow or arrows when things are not going right?????

I was shooting the other day when this fruit loop guy, he kept telling his arrows they needed to do their part......and to work WITH him, not against.....it was actually kinda disturbing.......

This coming from a guy who has a Mathews Estrogen in Tampax Pink and is afraid of a heating duct... are you sure you should be laughing at other people?

Talking to your equipment is one thing but when it answers you then you have problems.

Now Bowman, you just spelled fruit loop in the same color as your bow. Are you telling us you have a gay bow? I guess if it shoots good it doesn't matter. Now that I think about it I do talk to my hunting arrows right before I put them on the nock. I also give them a good luck kiss. I don't think I've ever talked to bow, however. I once gave it a little discipline and gave it the drop after a bad shot at an outdoor 3d shoot. That was a long time ago. I've since learned to control my emotions.

Ummm. Did you happen to notice if he started to shoot better after he talked to his arrows. Just curios. I'd never try something that crazy. And neither would I.Or me either.

Well maybe I need to try that approach, especially since Bowman found it disturding maybe I should try this to distract the competion around me. I wonder if something in this style will work for me? To think I've been trying to be curtious to other shooters around me.
