    I was told by some shooters they can actually see the spin of the target, letters and lines on the target. Can you?

    It's starting already and it isn't April 1st- but next time I shoot, I make sure that I look closely.

    There are some who can see the spin but unfortunately I'm not one of them. But when there is a bad background I can see that very well.

    Funny you ask, I cannot see what you describe, but every once in a while if I am standing the right spot I swear I see the shot string. It is usually by accident and I can never purposely see the shot string when I want too.

    Easy to do, no problem to read the lettering on the target. I thought everyone could.
