Thanks for all the great tips and videos. I will work on it and report back. I had the draw length adjusted last year when I bought it and believe it is correct. When I pull back my release anchors right in the corner of my mouth. I think a lot of my problems are the way I am gripping my bow. I will work on making sure the grip rests properly and I am not squeezing the grip. Thanks for the tips guys, I appreciate them.

Bigbulls is right...didn't watch the videos but explanation was right on.

Form is another thing that is very important. The arm that's gripping the bow should not be parallel to your chest. Your grip arm should be ~45 angle to our chest. If your draw length is too long, natural tendency is to overcompensate by making your arm more parallel to your chest to make up for it. This is one of the main reasons why people slap their arm with the string. By creating the Grip Arm/Chest/Bow String triangle, you'll eliminate a lot of these problems....because your string isn't traveling right alongside your arm.
