Competitive archery tip #1.
As you work towards competing with the highest level of shooters in the world, there are many things to remember. Some are more important than others, but you must remember that even the small things matter. The cliché is true: If something bad can happen, at some point it will.
It is vital to have enough equipment to bring a back-up part for everything you have: both to practice and to tournaments. Nothing is worse than getting to an event and realizing something broke along the way, or something breaks in the middle of competition. That replacement piece may be sitting on your bench at home, or you almost packed it, but that doesn’t do anybody any good. Things as simple as launcher blades, cable slides or rollers, extra peep sights and anything else that can be lost or damaged, bring it. Best advice is to make a list of parts that can be damaged and then check off every backup part you have before you leave and put all backup parts into one sealed bag or compartment in your case. Also, keep a set of tools you will need to replace those parts like hex keys. You will know exactly where to go to replace it – when it happens.
