Hello everyone! My name is Mark Jeffreys and I’ve been interested in archery for over 20 years. It all started when I was 8 years old and I tried to make a bow using a curved stick and a rubber band. It did not work nearly as well as I thought it was, but I’ve been obsessed with archery since then.
Over the years, I’ve spent a bit of time going to the archery range and seeing how well I could shoot. It wasn’t until I got older that I found out how much your form impacted your ability to hit the target, let alone the bullseye. That and using the same bow whenever I was shooting.
I had been going to the range for a while before I looked around and I saw all the fancy equipment other archers were using. I wondered how much of it was really needed. The answer was more than I thought!
I talked with several of the vetaran archers and I learned why they used the equipment they did. This helped kick start my own research into archery equipment.
I decided to start this site to try to pass on what I have learned about archery. I try to help you pick the right gear to help you no matter what type of archery you practice. I do all the content planning, writing, and editing to make sure that the content produced is of the highest quality. I strive to provide the most reliable information possible to help you make the right decisions.
I also talk to other archers and staff from local stores to learn about new items that may be of interest.
As much as I try to get hands on experience with the items mentioned on this blog, it’s not always possible to do so. In those cases I rely on extensive customer feedback from real customers of those items.
I want this to be a site you can trust – that is not biased with brand sponsorships – to help you make the best decisions for yourself.
What will you get out of this site?
This site tries to give you the best, real-world experiences from the world of archery. I strive to give you the best information on topics relevant to archery. If you identify with any of the following statements, this site is for you:
