anchor point

  1. Something isn't right...I've run out of adjustment

    General Archery Discussion
    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...

  3. Switching Releases from Trigger to Hinge

    General Archery Discussion
    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...
  4. Ahoy. I Can't Anchor.

    General Archery Discussion
    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...
  5. Compromise on alignment

    Traditional Archery
    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...
  6. Under Chin anchor explained

    Competition Target Archery
    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.

  7. Trying A Single Pin Sight On My Samick Sage

    General Archery Discussion
    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...
  8. Chickenwing

    General Archery Discussion
    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...
  9. Form and anchor point ?

    General Archery Discussion
    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...

    General Archery Discussion
    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...
  12. Handheld release anchor point

    General Archery Discussion
    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.
  13. Is it time to try a different release?

    General Archery Discussion
    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...

  15. Anchor Sight Question

    General Archery Discussion

  17. Traditional Sight Picture Question

    Traditional Archery
    I have read through the sticky "Various methods of Aiming the Traditional bow" and found it informative. My "Sight Picture" is not quite the same as in the thread so I am concerned my anchor point is not correct. I am shooting three weeks now "instinctively" (it is more likely a combination of...

  19. Help with Anchor point

    General Archery Discussion
    So I'm trying to find an anchor point that works better than the one i currently have. I'm not having much luck. Currently I am using a 26.5" draw with a Trufire Hardcore MAX release. I am putting my thumb on my neck and find that even the slightest movement messes up my arrow placement. So im...
  20. Need some feedback.

    Coaches Corner
    Hello veterans, So, I've been doing ALOT of research before I got my bow, and EVEN MORE since I've received mine. One of the things I really got interested in was applying a "D" loop to my string. Now, I was set up with a brass knock, but I noticed that the serving started to become undone...
