I have gone through the onlinearcheryacademy youtube channel and website, watched Jake Kaminsky's form series, as well as Nusensei's youtube channel to learn the ideal archery form. This book shares helpful tips that are I have yet to come across on websites or the youtube channels thus far (eg. how to align your feet with the proper angle and spacing in an open stance)
If you are going to get one book on recurve archery, this is the one. You know it will be good when there is a separate detailed chapter for each and every point of the shot cycle. There is a 20 page chapter with lots of images just on how to grip the bow. Each chapter ends with a great summary page. Invaluable resource and complements all the youtube videos out there that can never go into the same detail.
All special orders are treated with priority. Outside of larger items such as bows, many special order items are on a consistent stocking basis. General turn around due to pandemic backorders is at least 8 weeks depending on manufacturer lead times.
Some bows such as custom target bows and top shelf traditional recurve bows are on a made to order basis directly from the manufacturer.
Some left handed products such as high end target equipment can also experience unforseen delays due to manufacturer batch production.
We make every effort to meet the deadlines set above. Sometimes due to issues out of our control we are unable to accomplish this. We will make every effort to remedy the situation if that is the case.
