“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength.” ~ August Wilson

      A new way of shooting

Astra Archery is proud to present the Shot Trainer form aide. Now, learning how to shoot a strong shot without collapsing on the release is comfortable, convenient, and controllable. The Shot Trainer comes in two sizes and is fully adjustable to fit almost any body type or size, comfortably wrapping around the drawing arm in Nobel Prize winning Olefin fabric, made by Swiftwick. Durable parachute cord connects the Shot Trainer to the bow string, providing a secure, yet non-destructive attachment. Simply detach the stainless steel snap-hook to quickly and conveniently retrieve arrows. 100% made in the USA.

Astra Archery is proud to sponsor the members of the US Olympic Archery Team and the United States Olympic Resident Athlete Program with Shot Trainers. The original prototypes were developed in these programs in late 2007!
