Hi, i am from germany and just saw the last DVD from Rick last week. To try the second anchor point with the feather to the nose i would like to see a detail image how they are fletched. With my current one´s the nose is miles away from the feather.

I also would like to join one of rick´s class. "Hey Rick", when do you come to europe ?
Otherwise, maybe i can combine a visit to you with some bowhunting ;-)



Thanks in advance,

Reinhard

I am curious about this as well, does feather length make a difference? Does a 5" feather provide a better second anchor than a 4" feather?

Thanks in advance,
Brian Clark

Maybe the main problem for me is the split-finger draw. I am shooting longbow and in our championships/tournaments it is not allowed to do 3-under for longbows.

I tried to put a shield-shaped-feather to a bare shaft with some rubber bands. So i can adjust this in every direction. To hit the nose as second reference point i found a position only with 3-under shooting. But from the rules i have to use split-fingers. I am wearing glasses too.

Maybe i can use an other second reference point ?

Well from what I got off the video he said to get someone to stand beside you when you draw...tilt your head and mark the arrow where the feather should be for fletching.

I think what would be good is to take an arrow and fletch it close to a tunable nock (this will waste a fletch but who cares for now).

Then draw tilt you head so you can touch the feather.....have someone mark it with a sharp felt pen.....then trim the feather and repeat until you have it perfect.....then you can mark the back of the feather on the jig and you do one to try....if it all works out then your set.

Does this make sense.
