Carbon Express, the leader in arrow technology, is pleased to announce that Team Carbon Express member Michelle Gilbert won the company’s first ever recurve bow gold medal by a U.S. Archer in major tournament. Michelle took first place at the U.S. Archery Texas Shoot Out held in College Station, Texas.
Michelle beat Miranda Leeks, a member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team by a score of 6 to 2. Michelle was using the new the new Nano-Pro Xtreme Recurve arrows, which will be available in July. During the elimination rounds, the new arrows and Michelle’s spot-on aim only had her give up 2 ends out of 14 sets.
Despite the very windy conditions (College Station reported wind gusts of up to 25-30 mph that day), Michelle was able to shoot spot-on because the Nano-Pro Xtreme recovers so fast out of the bow causing less wind drift. Or as Michelle put it, “the new Nano-Pro arrows cut through the wind like little laser darts.”
