    Default hummm thinking...

    here is what i came up with. Took an old string apart, left one end loop that was served, so i could make a loop around bungie between Large D loop. once I had that, tied it for a short loop. then twised the bundle of string back together. I served about 3/4" some 22" inches up the string making my self a Y cable type draw stop. I wraped the legs the Y around the handle top & bottom. had plenty of length on each leg.. now hows my form...hahahhaha..lol feals prety good thou Iam still looking for that new ancor pt....

Great bunch of guys, but dang, they'll take your stabilizer, take your arrows, hide your bow and call out a your 10 as a miss.... Suckers turnt the lights out on the indoor range when I was about to shoot.
    sounds like they're trying to tell you somethin' ol' timer.

    If you are refering to me, one of them is my son, and the other one certainly knows I was pulling his leg, at least I would hope that he does.

    We go into local 3D shoots knowing any one of us are going to mess with someone. Comes down to competition and we get serious.

    When getting into back tension releases you may have to reset peep location and/or draw length. Below are the 3 I use. Presently my Shadowcat is set for the TRU Ball ST360, upper left. My Stanislawski, upper right, needs the draw length shortened at least 1/4" - note no thumb barrel, not even a place for one. My Stanislawski Deuce, red, needs the peep raised some or I have lean my head over quite a bit. Here, the Deuce is said to be a faster bt release and if set just so-so just easying up to let the fingers equalize will fire it.
    Again, the draw elbow has to be in line with the power stroke of the string. You if let the elbow out and or down it's really hard to get back tension to work and if anything trying harder pulls you out of shape.

    Thumbs up New Improvements

    I beleave things are comming along. but what do I know..lol
    I made one last change to my trainer, well a few ajustments have been made. After the adidition of string stop.
    1st was to cover it, used long length of fishing lure wire covers. sm dia orange is like a rubber snubber. The yellow (2 short ones) has no strech, its more like a straw.
    2nd was to repalce long D loop for a shorter one.
    have to live with the string wraped/tied to handle. If i was to makea 2nd I would 1. drill holes in the handle 2. make large end loops that hook over handle. just like your bows axle . I may try this a bit later. Now My son says," We can sell that"

    Well thats not a problum. How is it switching between the 3 releases.. I hope to keep using my other wrist strap release as well but shoot it BT style. not worried about it messing with my finger tab...lol
