I know of only two (Swedes) who shoot Olympic style with three under hold. Unless range is an issue, I don't understand why three under is not more popular with Olympic archers.

Any thoughts on the matter?

It probably is range, partially. You need the anchor as low as you can get it for the longer distances, even shooting shoulder-crushing holding weights of 50lbs or more. Else, you'll be blowing your sight pin off your bow lol.

Otherwise, it's probably convention, comfort and repeatability. I did try various different methods in my desperate attempts to become a good oly recurve shooter, but none of them helped. Retiring my recurve career and coming back to compound with a release aid is the only thing that seems to have worked. Recurves everywhere are still sighing in relief.
