IBO Pro Division competitors shoot two rounds of twenty targets from unmarked distances. These targets vary in distance up to 50 yards. Unlike ASA, there is no shoot down to decide the winner unless there is a tie for first. In the event of a tie, each archer shoots one arrow to determine the winner.
