    We have nearly completed testing our archery articles system and are about ready to go live.

    Many sites have sites have article systems, so this is nothing new. However, we want to get the best writers and archers producing articles for us. The question was how to do this.

    To help get the article system off the ground we are going to provide something nobody else in the archery industry is doing. For every article submitted and approved, you will get PAID!. That's right.

    Here's is how we will do it. You submit your article, we review and approve it. At this point we will assign you an Online Discount Coupon for use on our online store worth $5.00. You can submit as many articles as you like as long as they submissions follow our guidelines. You will get a $5.00 coupon for each approved article.

    So what are we looking for? Everything archery related. Shooting techniques, shooting form, bow tuning, arrow tuning, tuning of specific bows, broadhead tuning, group tuning, etc.

    Over the next day or so, I will post the link to the articles system and how you can get started.

    Please let me know what you think about this idea.

    Yesterday I sent this to Bowman:Bowtune, arrow tune, paper tune, timing adjustments, tiller, fiscmile, brace height, knock point, rest clearance, cam rollover timing, cable guard, front of the wall, back of the wall, peak valley, draw weight, arrow spine, balance, forward of center percentage, arrow oscillation, perimeter weighted cam, helical fletch, peep sight, anchor, feet per second, trajectory, kinetic energy, archers paradox.
    Got it from Ted Nugents site. Just a joke about the befuddling intricacies of archery.
    He , right-off got the idea to start a thread on bow terminology. Now if we all completed the list (if poss!) the next step is to simply elaborate on each term.
    I.E. draw length...........arrow spine..........draw stop tuning......... etc.
    Gives a writer parenthises within which to work.
    Bowman intimated to me that he had further plans for the original idea - just to make a list-I have feeling this is his idea:elaboration on the term!
    Now, I'm pretty mush of a beginner and went to the growing list & already found terms of which I've no clue as to the meaning.
    To make it short - the five bucks goes to the guy/gal with the most valueable? -description of the term. Or something like that. At least the list is a great beginning on what the heck to write about.
    I, for one, would like to know what ficimile is!
    Just a thought. Lefteye
