    I shoot a 42lb (at my draw length of 31") Turkish bow - with a thumb ring, not fingers. I make my own arrows and I'm about to get some decent bamboo shafts. The informed sources about Asiatic archery and bamboo arrows say that (because of bamboo's different resonant frequency/ different nodal...

    Hello all, Recently got back into shooting when my uncle gave me his Ben Pearson recurve from the 60's. I'm noticing that arrow flight is much cleaner when shooting without the tab. Thoughts on that? I shot a ton in high school, pushing 20 years ago, mostly bare finger, but developed an...

    As y’all know I went to Rick Welch’s school last week. Great experience. One issue I am really having trouble resolving is plucking the string. I also notice after shooting that my ring finger is usually sore. Makes me wonder if my ring finger is the culprit or an indicator that I’m plucking...

    Im not asking why one is better - lots of threads already and we can make more. Im just thinking about whats actually going on. The words are generally used this way (Im not saying its right) Dynamic release - The string hand is continuously moving back and when it releases the sting the hand...

    When at the moment of release : 1.) You do focus on the point of the arrow . . . Or 2.) You do focus on the point of impact (i.e. the target) . . . regards, John

    I've always* shot Olympic recurve with a clicker or compound with a thumb trigger release used properly (hauling on the wall until the shot breaks, rather than punching it) and the thing with both of those is that you aim to develop a "surprise" or subconscious release. 1) How should I go about...

    Anybody remember the name of the guy who came up with a leather release aid for people with hand injuries? He had pictures of him shooting and he also sold them.

    Is anybody still using Rogers Talon release? Are they still available? I was shooting last night and my finger started locking up like trigger finger. I was having a hard time getting off the string. I was thinking of getting a leather glove and sewing a tab on the side of the index finger and...

    As I work through my summer light bow form workouts, following what Sandy McCain has been teaching me, I have started to notice certain things. For one, the release comes from the entire body and not just the fingers. In my very deliberate way of shooting I am very aware of what is happening...

    Hey all, I've been watching a few videos about Back Tension Releases. I remembered a few threads on one of the other forums where some members talked of using a release on their recurves. Most were home made and back tension type releases. It got me a bit interested. There are times when...

    Thought to comment on a distinct threshold I had crossed in my search for accuracy. My archery reached a fairly satisfying level using a dead release. I was aware of the accepted system of follow through (dynamic release) but my beat up (tradesman) 58 yr old body convinced me to do otherwise...

    After communicating with two complete goofballs via text today, I may have had a hand in participating in that nonsense, so that's on me lol! Anyhow, I decided to expand upon the whole relax fingers release, vs the close your fingers release. I videoed myself doing this 3 ways, with comparisons...

    I keep hearing (what to me sounds like) conflicting advice about the release. So back tension makes a lot of sense to me and that sounds like you let the string slide off the tips of your fingers. Which is what I've been doing. Just setting my fingers to a certain pressure, is the best I can...
