With distances that range from 4 to 101 yards and angles of up to 40 degrees, the NFAA Marked 3-D National Championships course in Redding is designed to be extremely challenging.

On the Men's pro side, World #1 Reo Wilde tied ASA champion Levi Morgan and went to a shoot off to decide the podium places. Reo officially took the bronze with Team Easton's Braden Gellenthien in 4th.
"My Pro Tours just keep hitting center." Said Champion Jesse Broadwater. "There were a lot of shots on the second day that I didn't have to aim off (compensate) for the wind. I just held straight on and these Pro Tours just plow right through (the wind)" Said Jesse. "I've been close to winning here before, but it feels great to finally get the win on this challenging archery course."
Easton Technical Products President, Shane Michelli said "Easton is honored to have an archer like Jesse on the Team. His performance in Redding was one for the ages. For anyone to pull away from such a talented field is remarkable and Jesse did it in record-setting fashion. It is great to see him shooting Easton Pro Tours with such confidence."
