  1. There is something wrong with me when my arrow are little to the left I have to adjust my sight to the right or else it will more on the left again.

  2. I align the string with the sight and the target. Because I draw my hand not into the mouth corner but under my jaw bone. So shouldn't adjust the sight laterally when I change shooting distance..

  3. I have got a question for you
    The bow sight is mounted at a height above the arrow and if the bow sight is parallel to the arrow when you are sighting the target you are viewing the target at a height above the arrow right
    Then how the arrow will hit the target if the arrow is not pointing to the target and only the sight does ? The only way it is possible if the line of sight and the arrow Head converges at the target ?it does somehow and I want to know how any help would be benefial hope you can help

  4. Okay, I’m a beginner and my coach tells me the sight and hitting the middle is not important now, but what is important is the way and style you release, but when I used the sight, the arrow flew over and almost hit the street, thanks to some of my fellow archery mates they found the arrow 30 minutes later hahahahah πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

  5. May ask some question my sight are way too low for me (3 clicks a way from the bottom ) I have an accurate shot but when I see most of the archers are in the middle or almost on top. Do I have to adjust my nock point down a little to compensate for the sight? or Just let it be as long as I am consistent at my shot?

  6. thank you very much for your time and for your videos… a really good job! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  7. very good movie … I also think it is better to learn without a sight … our reference point may well be the arrowhead … we get too low, let's raise the arrowhead slightly and it will be ok…

  8. Well done for giving me common sense instructions on the sight block. I have an Avalon Tec one and had my sight block about 3/4 towards to firing end of the riser. I never thought of the fact the further out the sight block is, the smaller the adjustments become. I'll test this in my archery session tonight at the club. Thanks!

  9. I shoot recurve but at my local archery club everybody uses traditional so they tell me that I am now allowed to use a sight because its cheating and demoralizes the other shooters. I pay nearly 300 dollars for access to the club.

  10. Hay, just want to thank you for your videos, I've just started getting into archery and your videos are a great help .

  11. I have a question when you adjust the weight of the sight do you count on the upper part of the sight block or the lower part

  12. This is the best / simplest explanation of using a recurve sight I've seen. Love your videos and they have helped so much in my early/newbie stages of getting to grips with a recurve bow.

  13. How to see the alignment of sight pin and target from the left side of the string or right side?? I am right handed person & right eye is dominant. Please drop the reply or make a video to demonstrate the same. Thank you πŸ™‚

  14. I hope i dont need to get anything spandex like for my endevours whit my bow. Nu sensei looks fine, but i dont have the confidence. πŸ˜€

  15. Another new archer finding your videos very helpful. Loving archery but so much to learn. Thank you.

  16. Quandary? I have dropped my sight to nearly the dead bottom of elevation at ten yards. I haven't tried different anchor points but I assume that is probably the only way to get some of that elevation back? It is a Sureloc sight and I was shooting 3 under at the time. I have a pretty massive aperture on it at the moment I suppose it could be part of the problem as well? I just set it up tonight and my groups shrank from basketball at 10 yards to a tangerine at 20 (though about a foot and a half low) by adding a sight, HUGE fan.

  17. I don't shoot recurves (although I am thinking of trying it). I use modern compound hunting bows with a release. However I still find your videos very good and informative. Keep up the good work and thank you.

  18. Thank you for the video Nu sensei, it's quite helpful. Would you mind if I share your videos to another website for the people in mainland China?

  19. Please a little help on how to aim… which side of the string should we aim from…? I aim from the right side of the string between the string and raiser and if from the left side of the string, as you have shown in this video, how to do it while keeping the string in centre of the raiser…???

  20. I've been shooting traditional barebow for 6 months or so, and I've just picked up a sight to fit to one of my bows. Thanks for making such a comprehensive video with everything I need to know to get it fitted, adjusted and set up all in one clear video – as always, great work! Thanks!

  21. New to archery…when I started shooting, the instructor(he's so intimidating and Im not good with people) said I have to point the sight at the yellow circle to actually hit the yellow circle and it goes down outside the the target paper when I released the arrow…it happens so often that I ignore the sight and focus on what you've teach on the beginners video and I hit the yellow circle…haha…I also feel uncomfortable using sight

  22. Great vid, thankyou. I have a head scratcher for experienced archers or better yet any coaches out there:

    I'm left handed, left eye dominant. When I started shooting I just picked up a cheap fibreglass bow (now shooting a flatbow, looking to move into recurve) the basic instructions that came with the bow showed a right handed archer & the tab that came with the kit was a right handed one. Being totally green & not having a sight on it, I didn't appreciate the importance handedness & eye dominance. So I learned to shoot right handed now a few years down the line & getting serious about archery, and as mentioned making the leap into recurve (driving down to Merlin Archery wednesday to pick one up! whoop whoop); I'm unsure whether to stick with what I know or to be clumsy again & make the switch to left handed gear?

    Shooting my flatbow I have to close my left eye to sight down the string & arrow tip, I've been wondering how will this affect the use of a sight? Don't recurve coaches insist that you shoot with both eyes open? To complicate matters further my right eye is lazy (amblyopia) & opticians I've seen have remarked that my eyes work independently of one another (no, I don't use them like a chameleon lol) when gauging distance. I said to the optician well how come I'm not knocking things over & missing things I grab for? She said my brain has developed compensation methods over the years to gauge distance.

    Now obviously I'm going to ask the guys/gals at merlin for their input on the matter but I'm keen to get as many opinions as I can, so would be really really grateful for anyone else's opinion on it! Many thanks!

  23. Does anyone know a good recurve that youth can use? I want something at about 20 pound draw weight and somewhere around 100 to 150 dollars. If this helps I am an intermediate archer with a compound bow and somewhat good with barebow recurves
