    So, long story short. I have shot a ton, but past few months I’ve been slacking badly. Well, past 3 weeks or so, I’ve shot almost daily. Past few days I’ve been slinging hundreds of arrows a day. However, I cannot find my original anchor. I use an index finger release, and anchor right under my...

    I recently purchased this bow. It is 58” AMO and 47 pounds @28”. While it is absolutely a great piece, I am unable to draw it to a stage where I can get a solid anchor. The best I can achieve is is an anchor with the string about 5-7 cm from my nose where the lower section of my thumb is just...

    Does anyone know of a easy, cost-effective way to get springs for a Carter “wise choice” or Truball “blade” style release? The mechanisms are so similar that the springs are virtually interchangeable but I just don’t know where to find all of them for less than running around OSH then buying...

    Recently had some bow work done; Draw length, new strings, sight leveled, and cam timing. The shop recommended a floating anchor, and offered to revert back if I wasn't comfortable with it. I've been shooting it for a couple days now, an I like how forgiving its been shooting and the shops job...

    I started touching my finger to my tooth as a new anchor and my groups have been soooo much better. Anybody else try this n get the same effect?

    Hi all, I bought my Mathew's v3 and got setup with a 26.5" draw length. I practice in my backyard almost every day and was suspecting my draw length was a bit too long. My index base knuckle was under and behind my ear lobe by about 1/2" and my sight housing had a large gap in my peep with eye...

    Teaching my 10 year old nephew how to shoot and trying to teach him a proper anchor point. He seems to be doing OK with just a kisser button, however I'm wondering if putting a nose button on would help him or just be overkill. Dont want to put too many things on there and him start to over...

    I need some help. I was previously shooting a Mathews solocam Z3 with a Trophy Ridge Peak v5. I liked the idea of individual pin adjustment vs all moving together with the react technology, but I digress. I had plenty of elevation micro adjustment shooting around 270fps @ 27.5"/ 70#. Due to a...

    Hey everyone, seen the nose button that josh bowmar released. considering trying one, the tip of my nose and corner of mouth has always been my anchor points. i liked kisser buttons but i had way to much face pressure when using one. Any opinions?

    Just looking for some guidance on this topic - i just bought the Tru Ball HT 3 and I'm realizing that my anchor point from my trigger to hinge release is much different. Is it common to have to adjust your peep sight to compensate for this? I was hoping to use both for a while, but they don't...

    Backstory: When I was originally measured for DL, I was measured at 26.5" by two separate local pro shops. Since they both measured me the same, I'm fairly certain they are correct. When I bought my bow though, I was set up at 27", and was advised to use a TruBall Activator release with a BOA...

    I was just reading an interesting old thread on this forum about anchor points. Two comments stuck with me. The first, from 3D Archery, noted that skeletal alignment should dictate where we anchor. I've seen the video this comment was based on and it's compelling. Then Viper1 observed that true...

    Hi guys, I am new to this forum and hope to get some advice. I have been shooting a recurve bow for about two and a half months now. I started with a Samick Sage Riser with Journey limbs and just bought an Olympic Style recurve bow. So far I have anchored at the corner of my mouth but would now...

    Greetings, I'm progressing well with instinctive aiming but I have an inexpensive single-pin sight and want to experiment with it. I get the "follow the arrows" adjustment scheme but what I don't get is where to set the peep sight initially. How high above the arrow should the peep be? Also...

    All right everyone so the local shop here had recently ordered a ton of the trufire chickenwings. We joked around about the goofy looking trigger for a bit, but still wondered how beneficial using two fingers would make towards a more consistent anchor point. So we opened up the demo release...

    1. Should my draw arm elbow be level with shoulders at all anchor points? 2. Is it wrong to have multiple anchor points? I shoot a traditional bow and shoot pretty good but maybe not as good as I think I do. I anchor at different locations depending on the distance I am shooting. < or = 20 yrds...

    I'm shooting a Hoyt Nitrum 34 with a 29" draw length. I'm using a truball Max 4 hunter release witch is a thumb release its very short for max draw length. My anchor point is my nuckles behind the base of my ear. The string is still on the tip of my nose and my bow arm is still slightly bent...

    Where do you anchor your release hand? I straddle my index and middle knuckle on the back of my jaw, but I have to tilt my head to see through my peep and I'm trying to determine if changing my anchor will fix it or if I'll have to raise my peep.

    After shooting a few different wrist release at the local BassPro I settled on the TruFire Hardcore Max and its adjustability and comfort is awesome. I am still having a little trouble with two things though. First off is I have huge hands and I have a little trouble anchoring consistently and...
