After week 10 I made a small adjustment of the pressure button a quarter turn out/ less of plunger
showing, which should pull the arrows left a little as I shoot left
handed. As this was a trial I did not move the arrow rest fully in and it was visible a little to the outside of the arrow.
This week I was testing this out using 40cm rounds target at 18, and 25 yards. It seems to have improved the issue it may need further adjustment, for now I will adjust the arrow rest before week 12 to its correct horizontal place, and continue with the trial in a more organized manner, to find the fine tuning that may be needed.
On group practice day I was shooting in a team with 3 archers on an athlete exchange program, a university women's team member from Great Britain, a woman athlete from India, and a man athlete from the USA who is a field archery competitor, he is a Linux technician for a company in USA, as Linux is my hobby and OS of choice I was interested to hear about this too.
This week I increased my daily arrows shot from 75 per day to 100 per day, I think it was a bit too high of a jump too soon for me, considering the poundage increase on the new bow setup at the same time, as about half way through the week I was feeling tired and the grumpy feeling, so I eased back to 75 arrows a day for the rest of the week, I will consider a new way of increasing in a healthier way for me from this week (12) after discussing it, as it was a self directed change so I need to discuss it and ask about how to make a more steady increase.
Yesterday I have ordered my own bow scales from Merlin Archery, it is a Feather River bow scale, it is a calibrated mechanical bow scale. Once it arrives I will be able to test my actual draw weight as I progress with limbs and so enable me to choose the right arrow spine more accurately, due to drawing more than 28" standard length. Until it arrives I am unsure where it is from, but I know it is popular in the USA, Australia, and the Netherlands, as well as here (most places were sold out of it).
I also ordered a Cartel string jig, some string material (Flex Dacrogen) and serving material (BCY) and a Avalon serving tool, for learning string making for bows in the future, plus some glue in Easton tips for building my own arrows (Easton shafts), and a Mybo Zebrano wood grip for my bow to add at a future time once I get used to the bow more, it's a striped pattern grain wood it comes from an African tree species, it is the only wooden grip made by the manufacturer of the bow I use, so will fit well, it is a grip shaped for left handed archers.
I order things together, ahead of being ready to use them, as the postage is high here, so ordering together saves having to pay the same courier costs multiple times.
As I progress through adding the parts, and learning in each of these areas, arrow making and string making, I will do blog posts about them.
