  • Hoyt Podium: Pro Nano XS Long Rod Stabiliser: 36" with 8oz weights

I first started shooting when I was at University but never competed at the time. I then had a very long break before coming back and taking it more seriously. I spent over 12 years focused on Target shooting, competing for both Great Britain & England many times during that period. I now enjoy more Field shooting these days, especially the fantastic and incredibly challenging European Pro-Series events and the new and very exciting 3DA Archery UK events that are bringing some of the buzz of the US ASA 3-D series to the UK.

 

I choice the equipment I shoot based on what I believe is the best on the market and the best for me and the way I shoot, The DS-Archery products are no exception, I shoot them because I believe they are the best.

DS Equipment: 

  • DS Pro Nano Stabilisers 33" and 10"

I started archery when I was 11 years old and I got my first own compound bow as a Christmas present couple of months later.

My international career started in 2000. I love to shoot all types of archery. Field and 3D I feel are the most interesting and challenging types. 3D is my latest interest. My club has had a 3D course for many many years and I could see many 3D targets when I was practising field, but I never actually tried 3D until 2014. And I loved it! My long experience in field archery helped me to get my first 3D World Championship title just a year later. I have been shooting Pro Archery Series from the first ever tournament in Müllenborn 2007.

You can regularly find me competing as a Known Pro on the 3DAUK circuit or at World Archery events.

 

No matter how big or small the competition I always want the best and most reliable equipment at my side, that is why I choose DS. I have been shooting the products for quite a few years now and they have never let me down.

I have been shooting since I was 9 years old and have competed in many different societies. During that time I have achieved numerous UK National titles and in 2014 came 3rd in the IFAA European Bowhunter Champs. More recently I have managed to win " Shooter of the Year"  twice in both the Unknown and Known Distance competitions at the 3DA UK National Series events

I am lucky enough to be able to work within the Archery business and I fully believe that the DS-Archery products are the best on the market. They are quality and the proof is shown in the results of our shooters.

Bow: Hoyt Alpha Burner

 

 DS Equipment:

  • Vibex Long Rod Stabiliser: 33" with six ½ ounce weights

  • Vibex 10" side rod with two ½ ounce weights

 

I have been shooting the DS Vibex stabiliser now for awhile now and I’m really impressed.

The twill Carbon patterning makes them unique from other stabilisers available at the moment.

I chose the Vibex over the RV1 as its made from thicker carbon and was the heavier of the two – which is perfect for me. I really like how stiff the rods are and the internal foam really helps to beat vibration that usually occurs with some stabilisers.

I can highly recommend the DS - Dragon Spit Glue. The product has been around for years and is excellent not just for putting together arrow components but I’ve also heard other people say they’ve used it for other tasks – like glueing bits of their car back on, or fixing soles back onto their shoes

 DS Equipment:

  • Prime One: DS Pro Nano XS Stabiliser - 30" with 4- 6 oz weights                                                                                            DS Pro Nano XS - 12" Side Rod - 24oz 

 

I have been shooting since 1990 and have won numerous National and International Titles. I am currently competing on the European Pro Archery Series, The ASA circuit in America and the newly formed 3DA Series based here in the UK. 

I find the DS-Archery weight system is really simple and quick to use. Being able to adjust the weight on the front of by 1/2oz and as little as 1/4oz on the rear, really allows you to fine tune your aim.
