    After shooting this morning at 20 and finding it more difficult than yesterday to get the proper feel I went back to 13 and shot this target (10 arrows). I think I'll have to work on the transition...

    I totally agree. I can set up while drawing the bow with a little slack left in my bow arm, set my anchor, center and acquire the X and then continue the draw cycle. I was amazed how well this works...
