    I haven't shot in a long time. My need to shoot again grows daily. The dream of the Olympics works its way into my thoughts everyday. Long road, yes, I know. I bought a left handed (because I'm a left handed shooter) Hoyt, Mystic 6 years back and I need to outfit it to Olympic rules so I can get used to the feel of my machine. I'm thinking of a Quicktune 360 rest. New to the field so I understand. Any thoughts? And I love crosshair sights but what would be best for my ambistion? Thanks all!

    I would think you would want a plunger type rest since you'll be shooting fingers. log on to Lancaster Archery Supply and request a catalog. They've got tons of that FITA stuff. Good luck. :peace:

    Don't Know

    Well I did buy the bow some years back and I'm not sure as to what would best fit me. What is a TES riser? I wont be shooting fingers, it waves the arrow way to much. I'll be using mec. release. Pls enlighten. And thanks for such quick replies!

    Thanks for the reply. I'll be shooting with a mec. release. I've seen what a finger release does to the arrow. Waves way to much. Thanks for the supply info!

    Thanks

    Thanks for the welcome. I wasn't sure if I would get any respones to my question. Thought I would look dumb with my aim way to high for a beginner.

    No way...you have to have high goals...you just have to acheive them in managable steps...and PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE...
    The key is don't be discouraged at small setbacks...rome wasn't built in a day...if you get aggravated, step away for awhile...shooting mad just makes it worse...

    so anytime you need help, or just need to vent steam alittle...we're here to help, or slap you back to reality...

    happy shooting and again good luck...now go outside and practice...:usa:
