If you’ve ever been to an archery class, you’ve probably heard someone ask, “Why aren’t my arrows hitting the middle?” Though every shot is a learning opportunity, it’s still a great feeling to hit a bull’s-eye, and it’s OK to want to hit the middle every time!
For arrows that don’t get #extramiddle, we’ll review five common archery mistakes that recurve archers face – and some ways to correct them.

Have you heard terms like draw length, draw weight and feet per second, but have no idea what they mean? These are common archery terms you should know when talking to other archers.
Articles, videos and tips from your archery instructor make more sense when you know archery lingo and the context of the sport’s terms. That knowledge also helps you seek advice from fellow archers because you’ll know how to talk their language.
The terms aren’t complicated. In fact, you’ll feel confident using them in conversation by the end of this article.
Archery By the Numbers, Measurements you should know.
What exactly is the function of arrow wraps? Can’t quite work out if they’ll be beneficial to your setup or not? Andrew Tippins explains!
An arrow wrap is a small piece of self-adhesive vinyl that is wrapped around the rear of the arrow to coat the shaft in a very low weight plastic sleeve. The primary function of an arrow wrap is to provide an excellent surface to fuse a vane to. It’s much easier to bond plastic to vinyl than directly to a carbon or aluminium shaft. If an archer decides to strip the arrows in the future they won’t have to scrape the delicate surface of the arrows to remove adhesive, possibly causing damage to the arrow.
