Default Pick me apart #2

Alright, I played around with it some more, and I think it's better! I hope... Let me know what you think-

Here is the original post, the new one follows this picture:

OLD:



NEW




Let me know what you think- straightened up my back some, dropped my elbow, opened my grip so that my palm isn't touching it (thanks to the stop-sign trick)

I'm no expert but I think everything looks fairly well except your fingers on your bow hand need to relax. Also it looks like your bow is pointing down and to me it looks as if your knock point on your string is too low, if you tilt your head while looking at the picture to make the bow straight up and down, you'll see what I mean.

I agree. Your nocking point is too low or the rest is too high.

Relax your bow hand, it was better in the first picture. Your bow elbow is MUCH better.....Looks like your bow arm is locked out...Overall, looks pretty good really.

The only issue I see are the bow fingers,just relax them but don't change the grip or anything else there.The Elbow looks good to me,both of them.

You might want to narrow a bit with the feet.Just bring them a little to about shoulder width.


The arrow sure looks like it might be nocked to low,I noticed something looked weird in the first photo but really didn't think about it,I believe dws might have naled it.


Good work and now get the bow tuned and start working on little tweaks that fit you best.

How does it feel now?

I knew the fingers were too tight, I realized that as soon as I looked at the picture. That'll be fixed!

The nock is too low! Im going to put a loop on it and that will change when I do that- I was just more concentrated on getting all this stuff down first.


The bow feels much better now, I can't wait to get out and start shooting...only thing is its -15 with the wind chill right now! lol

NOW it dosnt hurt so much to look....Way better keeping everything in a streight line,now maybe I will start picking you apart..jk...
Get a wrist strap(cant tell if you have one).I also like how you balance the bow between the thumb and pointer with fingers out twords target.I never understood how guys can actualy grip a bow and not have issues,to me balanceing the bow in the pocket makes for easier adlustments with out changing the grip.
The wrist strap will keep the bow from falling and helps stabilize the bow when set up right.Also when youve shot long enough youll get the hang of useing the release as a micro ajustment for pin placement without haveing to move your whole arm/hand....
Ive been shooting this way since I put a strap and got a mech release witch was more then likely around the time you were born...
Just keep at it.
After awhile it will become natual for that anchor point and you will know when you dont have a good draw.....
Also if you like to tinker you could have someone mark the anchor point by the corner of your mouth and put a kisser button on to keep that same point of anchor the same every time.....
startin to look good...
