Default Fingers

With 2 fingers under becoming more popular I ask anyone that shoots this way, why? Just wanting to here some thoughts. I'm thinking of giving it a try[&:]. I just don't really see what I'm missing.

I shoot three fingers under. I don't get the pinch on my arrow. I've heard its hard on your lower limb. It has helped my shooting alot and it gets my nock closer to my eye.

It has more to do with getting a cleaner release and less string/arrow pinch. With lower holding weights these days many are using three fingers to draw and then dropping the top finger off once at full draw. The idea is less fingers on the string means a smoother, more consistent release.

A friend of mine that has won many Local, State, National and a World title with fingers shoots with only one finger below the arrow. Better have a strong finger
