I got an email from Portugal regarding buying archery equipment. The situation the writer is in is: no shops nearby, no ranges nearby, and no help nearby, and help on the Internet is spotty—sound familiar?
I get this question so often I am thinking about writing a book or pamphlet or producing an online course to help new archers and/or archery parents understand how to go about fitting, sizing, choosing, and buying archery equipment. The question is which?
What would you rather have:
a. a book/pamphlet
b. online course
c. an instructional video
This would be something you could refer to your students, archery parents, general questioners and it would be available relatively inexpensively. (If a book, you could buy copies from us at discount and sell to your customers.) Please respond with a comment (a., b., or c. plus anything you want to add)
Realize that brands and models go in and out of fashion (and business) rather quickly so the advice would have to be generic so as to not go out of date quickly. The fitting and sizing parameters have been stable for quite a few decades but brands/models come and go.
