    That is a cool and true saying. Had a great uncle that grew up during the depression and used to say "I'm as smart as anyone and never been inside a schoolhouse."

    Draw length is too long. Your right arm is wrapped around too far and left shoulder and arm is extended too far toward the target. You probably miss regularly to the right.

    As long as your bow arm and shoulder are in good form and your head is upright for both release types, the loop is the obvious thing to lengthen.

    Great pics Alan. the direction of the knots is exactly as I do them. When bow is drawn and hand is rotated to come to anchor, the proper orientation of the knots almost acts to tighten them.

    Well, that is a lot of heat. The tubing I buy has no glue. I don't know the shrinking temp. I don't want to lead anyone astray.
    Think of it this way--Any way heat is applied, enough to melt the...

    The first thing to do, IMO, is blueprint the string and cables. They may be off.
    Install the string set. The a2a and brace at that point should be close. Close is good enough.

    Stance is a little open, everything else is good. Just maybe, though, you could benefit from a little more thumb pressure on the grip. Just saying.

    You can do it.
    Is your Dad's bow the same? If not, take pics of cable routing.
    Take your time and double check everything, especially make sure all the loops are on the pegs.
