    I have been shooting some 26.75" arrows thru the chrono to test some limbs. I think 26.75" to the button is my draw. So if I can keep the point right at the spring I am at full draw. My kind wife was helping me she watched the arrow to make sure i was not creeping or over drawing. Bright...

    I'm new here, but from what I've seen this may be just the place to get some help. TradArcher recommended this site to some time ago, thanks Tom. Question is this.. I've been working on the expansion part of my shot. I've heard to push the elbow back but I can't seem to get that to work. I...

    I've been trying to understand what expansion is as far as muscle action goes. This statement was in a recent thread. "Expand to full draw (transfer of loading from arm and neck tension to back muscles)" Would it be correct to say that when you have transferred the load to the back muscles as...

    I'm curious to hear from those that use a clicker, or draw to a psycho trigger, or those that continue to pull till the shot goes off. Once your at anchor, how much more movement is left in your draw? I changed my anchor/head position and I'm working on keeping my bow shoulder down and I flex my...

    I wanted to point out an observation on expansion through release. Due to my fatigue issue I get to the point where my back muscles are too tired to expand properly. When that happens, my shots are unpredictable as the expansion is important to keeping me aligned through the shot cycle. Last...

    I've read about expansion in several books and on several websites. I listened to Rod's explanation in MBB3. I could write essays on expansion (probably about to ....) but what does it mean to the archer? What is it to you? When I started archery I had a dead release. Worked well enough. It...

    Firstly, I apologize for all the questions. I have been out for several years and have much to catch up on. I know in my shot sequence I am supposed to get to anchor, set the sight picture, and then move to the final stages of the shot. I believe many incorporate "expansion" into the back end...

    In my long fight to control my tp troubled shot Ive found gret help in shifting the focus entirely from anything aiming related to expansion.But the conscious push and pull still gives me jitters when the x is yelling me to go for it.Lately on the bale Ive got promising results studying what...

    Have been messing around with my target bow a little and decided to put a clicker (clickty-click style) back on my bow to see if I was creeping, but in the process I noticed something you fellas might find interesting and that is Depending on how much air is in my lungs the clicker will go off...

    Thanks to Oz and his post on his breathing during a shot, I finally stumbled on how to "expand" through release instead of "pulling through"...wow...that was a long time coming!! Been stuck at the same level for a while...dogged by the occasional flyer...trying to get comfortable with more of a...

    I thought I knew the difference between stress cracks and expansion cracks. After speaking with some guys at my club I'm not as sure as I once was. Recently, I've been buying and selling bows and really don't want to misrepresent these things. :help: Do expansion cracks run the length of the...
