Personal preference. I like mine really short. I just have room to attach my Sabertooth release which has small jaws. I have about an 1/8 inch clearance from my nock when my release is attached to the loop.
THAT makes absolutely NO sense. Please next time put a smiley face after ridiculous statements like this, so we know that you're joking.i set mine up to give me an extra 1/2" of dl. therefore i get my bows 1/2" shorter then my dl.
the longer loop does help reduce the amount of twist offset (it's not torque) imparted to the string if you rotate your hand a lot to anchor. quite a few target archers run a loop around 1" or even longer for this reason. speed isn't everything. an extra inch of release loop rope won't cost any amount of performance that matters outside the mind of the archer.If not...all you're doing is losing 6 or 7 fps, and for what?
