    Shooting with Classic Heavy Hitter (Island Made Catapults) again.
    Toothpick is very good target, but makes no sound when ball hits.

    Watching how you shoot . . . carefully aiming, and then at the last moment, dropping the frame down approximately 2-inches, while simultaneously releasing the shot. Fascinating technique. And obviously very effective.

    Funny thing is, that when I shot, I have no idea I'm dropping my frame before release :)

    After trying this 40 minutes I was already frustrated.
    Good thing is, that usually then I don't overthink my shooting anymore and something like this happens.
    Not going to try smaller targets than this.
    Last summer I tried too many impossible shots and that wasn't fun.
    Longer distance shots are fun, but then butterfly-style is only solution and not going to try it anymore.

    Just curious, and my apology if I missed your comments in the past if you've already addressed this issue, but just wanted to ask why you are "not going to try (butterfly-style) anymore". As for me, I love B.F. Shooting, but have had one-too-many scrapes to the side of the face. So have switched back to short-draw.

    When I tried last time, I was using 3/4 butterfly and after that had elbow pain two weeks.
    Now trying full butterfly two days in a row and not any problems.
    Well... only one, can't hit my target :D

    OK. Got it.
    Good luck in your journey.
    Hopefully the accuracy will come in time. If not, I'll always take 'best' accuracy over 'a little better' speed and power.
