Default Let's Have Some Fun With a Little Archery Trivia

I was at the indoor 3-d league last night shooting when I overheard someone trying to explain "back tension" to a fellow archer, so, I listened in. It was obvious that he himself didn't understand "back tension" so he was giving a lot of mis-information to this fellow. I said nothing, but allowed him to continue. The poor fellow was trying to absorb the explanation, but could not. Hopefully he doesn't follow the advise as it will certainly screw up his accuracy and form. Made me stop and think how much bad "advise" is freely given to others when he/she themselves don't know what they are talking about, but think they do because they have "heard" it.

So... let's play the trivia game and see what you know or think you know. Guess's are welcome.

I have my single pin sight setup to shoot at 15, 20, 25, 30 yards etc. We shoot 15 different targets at different distances and run thru the course twice for a total of 30 targets. On target #4 it was 17 yards (+ or-). I set the pin to 15 and hit the 10 ring. On the second round when I again came to this target, I forgot to re-adjust the sight, leaving it set at 25 yards from the previous target. I again scored a 10, but pinwheeled it in the 12 ring. I noticed after moving to the next target that I had not set my sight correctly previously but still scored perfect. Why??? Was it an error in my form and I just got lucky or is what happened correct. Can you set your sight for 15 and hit and set it for 25 and hit, but set at 20, you will shoot high? What do you think. I know the answer... do you. Let's see what you come up with. Let me give you a bit of additional information. This will not work on every bow setup. Why???

trajectory curve matching line of sight in 2 places - at 15 yard it crossed line of sight on the way up, plateaued , started falling down past 25 yard pin on the way down

your 45 yard pin setup may also act as a 10 yard
and your 60 yard pin setup may actually act as a 7 yard too

depends on a rear peep height

I think it has something to do with the flux capacitance? Smaller diodes, down around 5-6 microfloppies in the perseverance cantilever helped my elevation participator considerably. Just saying.

its called paralax. It has to do with the height of the sight above the rest which is why it is different for each person.

Sounds like a "trick pin" setup...

Dusty nailed it. I should have said that if you know, don't answer until we get a few wild guess's. Interesting how that works. Like the guy at the range "helping" a fellow archer understand back tension, it could be amusing to hear what some of the "sidewalk experts" think. It took me a while to be able to wrap my head around this "phenomena" and understand why. I had to have someone actually draw me a picture to illustrate how it works.
