Okay let me explain, I shot my first friendly comp. few months back and thought I did ok (can't remember my exact score) any way went back to my club and shot our course Avon Hawks for a few weeks and felt it was all over the place. Then, before Christmas we had another friendly at our club and this time felt I had improved 29/40. But since then again it's just doesn't feel consistent and I can't get it to group well at all. I've heard that the Daystates are not the best past 40 yards but not sure. Now I'm not that experienced, and I have said that I will stick with it but just concerned that it's going to frustrate me, and with SWEFTA comps starting soon I at a loss. I've cleaned the barrel, changed the pellet probe o ring, I use a single shot adaptor and AA Diablo's 4.52.

Getting to the point, should i stick with it or look at selling and getting something else, I'm thinking of a styer or similar if one comes up on here but just wanted people honest advice.

Thanks Tristin
I shoot an Airwolf in FT, I too have a Rowan single shot loader and this seems to wear out the probe o ring quickly, the last time it lost a ft lb, so made a huge difference to my dialling in ( I have a T50)
