So I have never worn arm guards when shooting/practicing archery. I was taught at a very young age that in order to make sure the string doesn't hit your arm bend your elbow slightly out. This is what I have always done but I have read and realized that I can get at least 1/2"-1" extra draw length if I lock my elbow and arm completely. Now I'm just not sure if this is ok for the arm or if this is improper form. The difference is to make sure the string doesn't hit my arm now I rotate my elbow/arm clockwise (awkward motion, takes getting used to) but after I do this my string doesn't come near my arm. Is this a bad idea? Bad for form? Bad for my elbow/arm? Thoughs =).
