    As far as the rotation on every shot, that's normal.

    For the idler lean, that may or may not be a problem. Do a search here for bare shaft tuning.

    It seems to be pretty common that when a wrist shooter tries a handheld for a sufficient period of time, then goes back to the wrist, they shoot better.

    The beman's are a very good arrow. In fact when I did a lot of measuring arrows for straightness, Beman's tended to be straighter than others, even when the package was marked 0.006".

    With her release hand so far out, she's plucking the string.

    But I disagree with "wardrobe malfunction". Looks good to me. I hope it catches on!

    I had several failures with epoxy and the guys at my club talked me into using hot melt. I haven't lost a point since then and that's been about 12 years of a lot of shooting.
