    I have been having some shooting issues and have to try something different. I am going to try canting with a springy to try to get the arrow closer to my eye.Shooting upright at 20yds I have to big a gap and string walking is not working either. My brother stopped by with Jason Wesbrocks...

    ok so i was out shooting today and i was canting my recurve before and i was not as consistent. i tried shooting the bow vertical and my groups shrank quite a bit like alot. my question is why is this so? i shoot instinctive but my release and everything felt really good. Is this because i use...

    Just an observation, as I shoot an older recurve with a feather rest, that canting the bow is working much better for me than holding the bow vertically. I spent a good six weeks straight trying to only shoot a vertical bow, which was working out pretty well, overall. Two weeks ago I switched...

    So I have always had issues with hitting right (I'm a lefty), and it turns out that it is a string alignment issue. I can't quite get the arrow under my eye... So to help with this someone here suggested canting, and it certainly helped a lot. Before I hit the bale for a few weeks are there any...

    Many years back, if you put wooden arrow on the string of your Bear bow the point arrow was to the left of the string a good bit. you learned to cant the bow till the arrow was under your eye. the next thing you learned is that if your point was aimed 3.5' ((edit that should be 3.5 steps not...

    Does canting make your arrows appear as if they are weaker? While I wait for my new Falco longbow, I continue to practice with my 30 pound Samick SLB (40 pounds at my draw). I am shooting wood arrows that I am sure are stiff. I have some arrows that are spined 10 pounds less that I should be...

    I used to cant my Bows. I no longer cant and shoot my Bows vertical. Here are my observations; I find that centershot and arrow spine are both determiners on canting more so than alignment. I shoot HH type Bows and always cut them to centershot to allow them to be shot vertically. I think most...

    I am right handed, and left eye dominant. I have read thousands of posts on this subject. Shooting left handed is not an option, tried it. I am in the process of building my form, establishing it. I go back and forth between canting and not canting. I think moist say that better form comes...

    Does anyone cant their bow with sights? I just started shooting with sights and it has improved my confidence and accuracy, but it feels awkward shooting with a vertical bow seated in a tree stand. Will canting with sights work?

    Hi, Years ago, I was a snapshooting croucher. Then I found this site and became a Quinn-shooting, 3-fingers under, low anchor, upright bow, subconscious gap shooter. At close range I'm having luck with 3-under, a high anchor (cheek bone), and a cant to the bow. If I don't cant the bow with...

    what are the cons to canting a bow?? I did a bunch of searching and got allot of good ideas on form, grip and follow through but didn't see anything carved in stone about canting. I want to do allot of work on my form and want to hear some opinions from guys who know allot better than I...

    Can you cant a bow while shooting with an elevated rest? Seems this might change the point of impact.

    I've read several posts about the SRF sight, and I'm interested in giving it a try. The one thing holding me back, though, is the thing that has prevented me from trying other sights on my bows. Does the SRF allow you to cant the bow and still use it effectively? Is there some sort of...

    When I used to shoot a compound and a recurve in a college archery class, I was always taught to hold a bow verticle and that canting was bad form. I know there are some very good shots on here and LW that cant a bow way over. I have seen pics of some of you guys that look like your almost 45...

    Went through many various archery websites Sunday and read one that stated the individual observed an archer canting his head while canting his bow. He implied that this was incorrect or just different, don't remember exactly. I do this head canting also. Last night half way through shooting I...

    Greetings, When shooting from an elevated rest on a recurve, should one avoid canting the bow and adopt a more target-type stance? Or does it really matter? Quite honestly, I find a target stance more comfortable and natural, much to the chagrin of my traditional friends. I do cant slightly...
