Terry,

I have been working with your form clock as well as Moebow's rotational draw concepts.

I anchor split with index on corner of mouth. When I get what feels to be a good shoulder-to-target alignment with my anchor firm on face (almost tugging behind me), the sensation of shooting feels a bit like I'm shooting from behind my head over my back. My draw length is also a bit shorter then what I had when my form was not as aligned.

My better shots feel this way, and I attribute the shorter draw length to the alignment and natural lay to anchor, whereas before I was perhaps pulling backwards with my elbow and shoulder away from the target, producing an artificial extension.

Is this feeling of "shooting behind the head" and shorter draw length on the right track?

Thanks for the great tutorials. (and to Moebow for his, as well!)

Sounds like you are creating the 'J' now with your drawing arm...and yes, that's what you want to achieve to acquire back tension and energy going directly toward and away from the target.

I think it clicked!!!

Now by no means am I saying I became a great shot but literally overnight my shooting got very considerably better...

All it took is to focus at the beginning of each shot to get everything in my upper body pointed straight at or straight away from the target. Then I focus on squeezing with my back muscles!

Have been lurking on the form forum for a bit now and reading Terry's form clock over and over. After piecing it all together this is the conclusion about cant and alignment that I have come up with and just want to know if I am on target here.

If I let my bow take a slight cant as it naturally does when pointing at the target, do I have to bend slightly at the waist to line up with the bow/string? Ensuring that I keep full expansion of course, moving nothing else but the waist.

Yes....if you cant the bow, you need to cant your head....or your waist to stay in alignment with the string....also make sure your string hand is canted same as string or you will but a Z Torque on the string.

Your video should have shipped last week....I'll check and see....I've been away for a week....sorry for the delay.

To me it looks like opening your stance too much could be a big problem (my problem) keeping alignment... I never did that shootn wheels. Should I try closing some to see if it helps keep me from collapsing as I tend to shoot left like 6-8" at random times?

Stance really has no bearing on alignment....its all from the waist up. If you are properly aligned, your form doesn't care what position your legs are in...heck, it don't even care what position your upper body is either.

I figured out part of my problem. I always anchored with my thumb up by my temple, but when I get tired, I tend to press with my thumb hard thinking I am keeping my anchor solid, when infact, I am pushing my hand away from my face.

I had to go to the bale and relearn how to anchor with my thumb down at jaw line, which felt about as unnatural as wearing my pants backwards. But since doing that, my anchor seems to be more solid without string hand torque and I can hold more steady with a cleaner release.

Hello All, this is some great info here, I have a question though, I saw some one referring to 2 anchor points. I shoot 3 under and anchor my pointer finger to the corner of my mouth. What is the 2nd anchor that is referred to?
