My name is Anca and I have been doing Archery for just over a year now. During this time I realised how much I love this sport, how much it taught me, and most of all, it helped me meet some incredible people I am proud to call “my friends”.
For everyone who has any previous archery knowledge, I shoot both an American Flatbow and an Olympic Recurve. For the moment hehe.
As a quick introduction, but I promise more detailed posts about my equipment:
1. The Flatbow (a Ragim Wolf) which is my first ever personal bow that I love very very much. (photo)
2. The Olympic recurve ( CXT riser, SF limbs, etc etc… I will detail later), but here’s a cool video below!
I want to keep this blog as a little public Archer’s diary, as well as to make it a learning ground for both me and people interested in archery, or any kind.
So, if you have any questions, you want to say hello!, or correct me for anything I say wrong: message me! I’d love to meet you all!
