WFC? The subject is his value as someone we could learn a thing or two from.....which I’m sure he has much.

But if I’m forking over a nickel for any ‘tips’, any and Nicole’s if mine are going to the many very fine shooters, who have long and distinguished histories of outstanding behavior on the course. Too many elite level shooters, with elite level manners and reputations to spend my money with.


Exactly. Class of 78 (Ben) just using the board to drum up business. Wish Curly would remove this thread. I’ll get my tips from Anthony, Zach, Wendell, Bill, David, and on and on.


Being a good shot does not necessarily make you a good coach. Being a good coach does not necessarily mean that you provide good online instructional content. At some point in the future I might decide to get in person instruction from one a top tier coach's but for now I prefer to watch instructional videos that I access online (mostly Youtube). Most of the guys you mentioned above do not have much of any free content to look at and see how their methods work for you. For free online instructional content Ben and Gil Ash seem to have the most out there. For me Ben's content is more easily understood and transferable to my shooting. I have been able to take some of his advice go and practice it and hit targets more consistently because of those methods. I am aware that Anthony has instructional video content that you can purchase online which a lot of people seem to enjoy. The problem for me is that video based instruction is something I like to test drive through free content before deciding if the instructor is good at conveying their message clearly both visually and orally in the videos. I just have not seen enough "sneek peak" instructional clips out of Anthony or others to pay the price over what I am already finding helpful from Ben.

To me the Northbrook Cheatgate scandal is irrelevant to what I get out of his instructional content.

A friend of the site asked me to post this for the benefit of LacyB and others thinking AM has no free material available:

To me the integrity of the sport is more important than giving internet hits to Ben to save the difference of a SYO shoot vs a shoot with trappers.

My whole purpose of posting this was for internet content to be viewed by the masses. I have heard many rumours seen no evidence on cheatgate. So I’ll continue to learn from what I see as the best out there

I never said he had no free content just not as much. I had watched this video 2 times previously along with videos from several others. Ben and Gil both have tons of content out there. The Smoking Targets series from Ben is probably my favorite. The "How to Break" series from the CPSA is also pretty good although the instructor is very bland which makes the videos less enjoyable than they could be.

I came upon a Digweed video today that was quite interesting. He had a lot of discussion of footwork and stance. He was talking about some tough targets presenting edge on and curling away as they retreated into the distance. Problem was, he talked about the importance of hitting them at the right time, but never really showed what that was. The recorded views of the targets weren’t really clear enough for the viewer to tell what was going on in the absence of detailed explanation so some good, some bad.

Reference GD video

Was a useless video like most of his content. A tremendous shooter in days gone by but unfortunately a new technical era has left him behind.

Certainly removes all doubt about his purpose here though.
