A bow of any draw-weight, but not a compound bow or crossbow, may be used.

Subject to the ‘NFAS Rules of Shooting’, archers shooting in this class have complete
freedom of choice of equipment, with the exception that no form of release aid is allowed and
no electrically powered or electronic equipment can be used (eg laser sights, lights on sights).

The sight may be moved at will during shooting.

Attachments, knots or bands of any size or design (including a peep sight) may be used on
the string irrespective of whether the use is for aiding the sighting or shooting technique.

Any draw-length checking mechanism may be used.
