No idea...do you want to get into it because the the name of the feathers on the arrows is fletching, and it sort of sounds like felching? :D :P :twisted:

hahahaha... nah above the belt on this one... had an interest in it for a long time, and gonna take the plunge and buy a mid-range bow. The shops around here are all dodgy, so im gonna get one from the states at half the price.

I had a go of my mate's bow shooting at 2 litre bottles filled with water, heaps of fun! I managed to hit them too (and yes, I was further away than 1 metre :lol:)

Would love to get into it myself one day. Let us know how much you end up spending so I can work it into the budget somewhere in between the car, new bike (BMX) and various other shinies.

i am looking at about $400ish for a bow and some arrows (from the US). you can go cheaper, but i think they are absolute crap...
the bow i am looking at is a PSE Stinger 3G, bow by itself can be around $300 (all reviews and suggestions i read say it is rock solid and great for the price)

I'll ask the pros next time I'm in Sherwood Forest but seems Robin Hood prefers the stock market these days.

I'll seek medical attention to the rash also.
