The new 120 arrow round.

A standard indoor archery round has 3 arrows shot in 2 minutes with 20 ends for a total of 60 arrows. 

The new round (an invention of Heidelberg Archers) has 6 arrows shot in 2 minutes with 20 ends for a total of 120 arrows but only the best 3 arrows of each end are scored. 

It's archery for the common man.

Lots of practice and relaxed because if you have a bad shot it wont destroy your score. 

Excellent scores were shot and interestingly the spread between the archers is much closer which is very encouraging to the up and comers. There isn't the massive differences in scores between archers. The best archers still win but not by so much that they seem out of reach for everybody else.

I like this new round a lot.
