Re: Do you ever get frustrated trying to help?
After a quick stint in retail, I realized there are 4 types of shooters: 1) "the Pie Platers". As long it can hit a pie plate at 40 yards, their bow, equipment, and their ability is tuned for the season, even when they just got it out the week before. 2)the "Low Ball Wanna-Be's". They want the best results with some of the worst combinations of equipment and techniques 3) the "Point Buyers" These are guys that will spend any amount of money to get the "best latest and greatest" because they saw someone else using it. Forget the fact that some people can just shoot better than them or anyone else in the business. 4) the "Swappers"- these are the guys that will change out equipment without learning how the prior equipment performs. They are especially fond of swapping out releases, arrows, tips, weight, stabilizers, rests and sights. They can easily be grouped in with the Point Buyers for the amount of money they spend.
Most have one thing in common. They do not know the intricate balance between a properly tuned bow and properly suited equipment. They have yet to evolve into "archers".
As others have said, you will learn when to just smile and walk away, or in this case, not click on the "reply to this thread" link.
Wishing I was at camp!
