    It's one of the manifestations of target panic. I actually got the same thing shooting fingers, not even a release. I quit archery for a year because I was so frustrated. I picked up a release and...

    I always enjoyed being around Frank. My son and I helped setup for Vegas one year and Frank was working harder than any of us. He was a hoot to be around.

    I don't know anything about that sight. But it looks like you might be able to remove the head and flip the part that mounts to the bow and get the whole thing lower.

    Move it to the lower holes in the riser, upper holes in the sight. That will give you the maximum amount of down direction.

    There really is no such thing as a "beginner" thumb or hinge release. You have to decide which one you want and go for it.

    My tip for when using super glue for kisser buttons or nock points is to heavily wax the area under the nock or kisser first. Then tie it and dab with super glue. You can then thread it up and down...

    If, in fact, the hole is stripped, I have had great success with Recoil brand thread repair kits. It's a better quality heli-coil.

    The whisker biscuit is doing it. It's a known issue with the rests. It is also not the reason your arrows are missing the mark. Wavy vanes don't affect accuracy that much at that distance.
