So I was discussing finger position the other day with someone and the debate raged. 3 Under or Split? Who shoots what? What % of us shoot where?

Both; but I voted the one I have used the most lately. Maybe this is my problem! [biglaugh]

I don't like how loud my bow seems when shot 3 under. So I shoot split.

I'm surprised by the results so far. I shoot split but it seems most 3D competitors shoot 3 under with a high anchor and/or string/face walk.

3 under........shot split for 30 years and then went 3 under. I would find it very difficult to go back now. I get a good release and my accuracy is more consistent.

3 Under. Started split in the late 60's. 3 Under is more comfortable for me.
