    Ok what is going on here I can shoot a single spot and slap arrows in the 5 ring all day but when I go to the 5 spot I put arrows everywhere.:noidea: I was shooting a 5 spot the other day and completely missed the target.:mad: Is this possibly due to a lack of concentration or could it just be a mental flaw(no smart a$$ comments here please).:laugh: I am getting very frustrated. HELP

    used to happen to me all the time......then I switched to a five spot all the time....no more worries.....


    the problem is you....not your equipment.....maybe someone moved your magnets???

    When you are shooting at a five spot the 0 factor is not there.....

    the 0 (zero) factor is......when shooting at a five spot you have alot less room for error....meaning if you are off by a little ona single you still get a 4 or maybe a 3 ......but if your off on a five spot by that same amount you looking at 0

    Mental issue

    Actually this is a mental issue, another person is having the same problem. He can sink arrows all day long in the single spot but when he starts shooting multiple spots he is all over and also misses the target. I would suggest that you go back to basics shooting multiple spots start with shooting at 10yrds. as you start sinking arrows were you want them step back to 15yrs and continue to shoot and so on(same thing as blank bale shooting IMO). You just have to overcome the mental barrier of shooting a different target. I hope this helps good luck.:peace:

    Thanks Frank I have been doing some 10 yard drills and alot of blank baling to try and relax and just feel the shot. I guess its kinda like when I had TP just gonna take some time to fix.
