Default ASA Traditional Class

I am not necessarily new here, but haven't posted much. I am trying to set up my first metal risered bow for a local ASA class. I am asking for guidance from some of the guys who are more into the tournament scene. I have not shot many ASA shoots, so i'm wondering what would be the most accurate set up I could set up? I can shoot with both a stabilizer and an elevated rest should I choose.


Are there real benefits to them? Thanks, fellas.

It may be beneficial to know my set up, I have a 17" Gen 3 Morrison with some Morrison Max 4 Longs that are #46@28, I draw to 29.5".

Yes both are worth the effort. A stab will stiffen your arrows, so check your tune. 25yd game, set up accordingly.

Spend the money on a 25" riser. It's worth more points than a stab or expensive rest.

Lets put it this way the only thing you can't do is string walk and have a clicker ! 12 inch stab, yes a raised rest and flipper. Do your best with what you have for now , come to a shoot and check out what everyone is using. then go spend what you have too. Cal

Nope

How about face walking?

Nope

I quote: "Bow must be either recurve of longbow without wheels or cams. No release aid, no sights, a SINGLE stabilizer up to 12" in length measured from the point of attachment, no overdraws, no draw checks, MUST HAVE ONE FINGER TOUCHING THE ARROW NOCK, AND MUST USE ONE CONSISTENT ANCHOR POINT. No marks on the sight window, string or bow to use as an aiming of judging reference. All arrows must be identical in size, weight and construction.

25 yards max (+/-) 280FPS Unknown

By the way, congrats on your win this past weekend in Cincy.

Like Cal said go to a shoot and see what everybody has, ask questions more after than during, watch, listen, absorb, and have fun. jim

ASA shoots are drawing more shooters than IBO shoots at the national level, with a larger amount in pay back to shooters and it cost less to shoot them. jim
