Question, I've been playing around for awhile with a back tension release, will my point of impact be slightly off verse me using my wrist release???

I've got a buddy letting me use a Easton stabilizer with v-bar's, etc..

What position is your hand usually in with a back tension??? Knuckles 90* to the jaw or knuckle all resting on your jaw???

Thanks for the imput:teeth:

probably

Even though you are still looking through your peep in the same general way, I have noticed that my POI changes depending on what release I use. The way you hold your release is all up to you. I tend to have it at more of a 90, then tuck into my jawbone. Other people have it almost vertical. The choice is yours.

It most defintely can change. Anytime you change the way your release/hand/arm/eye/peep/string/sight line up, you will see changes.

As for hand position, I used to turn my hand up (knuckles facing away from face) but I've recently switched to 90 degrees and am liking it better now. You can see pictures and a description here:

Thanks for the link:smile: that is the position that feels the most comfortable for me, my point of impact is only about 2" left, so I guess I'll need to adjust the sight;)

any time you change releases it seems that your anchor changes slightly
with a bt i try to place my first knuckle and my second knuckle over my jaw bone and my hand at 45 degrees
i should rephrase that my jaw bone between my 1 and 2nd knuckle

Mine POI always changes slightly when I first started switching to the hinge or thumb.

As far as holding....find a comfortable anchor and have a friend take a picture of it. If your in a "normal" type spot, go with it and try to duplicate it every time.

It can also change based on how you were firing the release. If you were anticipating the index even a little the POI can be different. There are a lot of variables in the equation. Anchor, hand position, release itself, way you look through the peep, etc..

My POI is only about 2-3" left, so a sight adjustment is what I'm guessing I'll need to do.

Thanks guy's:darkbeer:
