DS Equipment: 

  • DS Pro Nano XS Stabiliser 25" and 12"

I’m the tiny Trex archer! At 25” draw length and 50+ compound draw weight I’m tiny but mighty.

I started shooting as a recurve at university in 2012 after some convincing I switched to compound in 2018 and have been loving it since. Shooting to 25th in the UK in my first compound year.

 

I mainly shoot target competitions, but am looking at trying out 3D and Field in the future, watch this space!

 

I started using DS Stabilisers as I wanted a set of good stiff rods that could cope with both my poundage and shortness I require. I couple these with DS weights and dampening.

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.

DS Equipment: 

  • DS Pro Nano XS Stabiliser - 33" with 20 oz weights 

          DS Pro Nano XS - 12" Side Rod - 25oz Canister

          DS Pro Nano XS - 14" Side Rod - 14oz Weights

I have been shooting since 1993. I have won numerous National titles at Target and Field as both a junior and a senior. My biggest achievement to date was being a member of the Great Britain team for the World Championship in Mexico City 2017 where I managed a 9th place finish. 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.

 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

Over may many years of shooting I have tried out many rods. I have now shot the DS Pro Nanos for the last few seasons and have no intention of changing them any time soon! They are stiff and very well constructed, they easily compete with the 'top manufacturers' offerings and exceed most of them. I would highly recommend these stabilisers to anyone looking for new rods.

I first picked up a bow in 1999. There were some ups and downs with recurve, and I finally decided to have a proper go at shooting compound around 2016. Since then I've had some decent results at European IFAA events, been in the top ten at the European Pro Series, and made the GB team for both field archery and 3D. I also try to shoot the 3DAUK series which is great fun and a totally different challenge, but with somewhat mixed results.

 

I'm using the DS stabilisers primarily for their stiffness. I don't shoot a lot of mass weight compared to most archers, but have found that the stiffer the rod the more noticeable the effect that a small change in weight has. So the small tuning weights that DS produce are great to play with, as well as the different lengths of bolt to attach them if you really want small changes - so many people quote how many ounces they are shooting without thinking about the 4" long steel rod that is holding them all together! 

The DS equipment generally is really solidly built. I'm still on the same longrod I first got in 2016, and having compared it to a fresh-from-the-packet one in the same configuration I can't tell the difference..

 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.

  • DS Pro Nano XS - 10" Side Rod  

 

I started shooting at University, stuck with recurve for a number of years before finally swapping permanently to compound. There's been some real high points to my archery such as getting my 1350 WA Star, making the GB 3D team, placing 3rd at the 2017 IFAA European Championships, equalling a European IFAA record, but on top of that I'm also a World Archery Continental Judge.

I've been the Chair of Judges at a number of premier UK events including the All British Field Championships, and most recently was on the judging team for the European Field Championships in Mokrice-Catez in 2019.

 

I shoot as much as I can while still keeping this sport fun, and I use the DS product range because it's so consistent. It's one more thing that I don't have to worry about changing from one day to the next, and I don't have to think about whether my equipment may be letting me down.
