You have to find that second anchor point that fits you.....do a search for double anchor and you will find a lot of info.

New here on the forums, and this thread is probably the greatest resource I have found to help improve my form. Even bought the DVD, just to be safe. Thanks!

Terry, how do I know I'm using back tension? I feel my back muscles but I also feel my upper arm muscles after a training session on the bale!

Also, are you shipping DVD's? What is the time expected to receive it, say, to Savannah Georgia?

Get the DVD order in and I'll get it out same day if I can...Savannah is Next Day since I'm from GA.


In your last video, your alignment looks pretty good...you still may be using arm muscles 'early' in the draw and the back is taking over soon after....no matter long at the back takes over.

Based on those clips and your elbow movement and lack of bow hand movement....I'd say back tension is clearly underway.

Thanks.

What about the use of a form master? I just made one this morning but haven't tried it yet.

It seems that I lay my head after anchor! It doesn't seem right!

From way back pn page 4:

quote:
The best way to get properly aligned is to do it on the bale....and find the place to anchor with your elbow pointing at 6 o'clock....and if you can find a second(double) anchor that's even better.

I understand the concept, but with my particular build and my long arms, if I bring my elbow back to the full 6:00 position, then my hand is completely behind my head. Any suggestions on how to compensate? I plan on ordering the DVD by the way.

I will try to buy the tradgang dvd. I have the M*sters of Barebow series 1-4. It has helped a lot. Now, will try to buy the tradgang dvd.

I feel I am at a point where I have enough bows. I have like 5 or six of bows already. I don't need to constantly check the classified to buy more bows (albeit, I am missing longbows in my collection, as I have zero longbows.) Now, it is time to spend money on DVDs to funnel money into proper learning and shooting form.

cheers.

I will look for the tradgang dvd and buy them. If there is a whole series, I will buy the entire series.

cheers.

I always thought my draw length with trad gear was 27" but if i make the proper T form its actually 29" the same as with my compound

--------------------
And in the end when i can no longer draw the bow or watch the arrow embark on its flight;when i posses only the spirit of the hunter, i will hunt.... if only in my dreams... because the hunt is born amidst my soul, and i... i am the hunter

Yep same boat here. When I was still shooting a wheelie my draw was about 30.5" but that was with a release. I was shooting my longbow with a 28"-28.5" draw up until about a month ago. I now have a 29.5" draw, which I apparently had the entire time but was not taking advantage of that extra draw length. I was told initially that it is normal to be that much shorter with a trad bow.

I was shooting well and never thought about changing anything. I was bent a little more at the waist than I needed to be and my head was forward more than needed, but I was hitting my anchor and thought all was well.

I have been spending a lot of time just drawing my bow holding, and putting the focus on my back tension. I am now able to come to draw and hold a little longer if I need to and feel no need to release the arrow on contact with my anchor. I now draw settle in focus on a spot and release. My daughter has been using a timer when I do this and the hold is between 1.45-1.79 sec I have her start the timer when I reach anchor. I also have done this holding for 5 sec and then release, this is for backyard practice no target just a focus on my form. For me this feels like forever because before she could not start and stop the timer fast enough to time me. I literally would draw hit anchor and the arrow was gone. I have practiced a lot holding for up to 20 sec for 3-5 reps and then 6 reps. But then I do another 5-10 reps holding for up to 15 sec. I will never be a really slow shooter it goes against my natural rhythm. The difference now is I actually take that extra second or two at full draw to settle into the shot. Feels so much better. Thanks Moebow
