I wouldn't call shooting split and Hill style dark ages, but there is a painted over arrow hole between the up stairs windows of my house, they are 7" apart. That was me shooting three under with a short recurve, I lifted the arrow off of the bow as I drew and released. I shot three under years ago when I had a 50" Browning Cobra, I decided that short bows and three under were not for me. Even then, I had to be very careful when shooting at game, so I wouldn't lift the arrow. I found it very distracting and threw off my shot timing. Some can do it without a second thought.

I was referring more to their midset than the equipment choices being dark ages. I'm more than happy to see people shoot a bow that makes them smile be that compound, longbow. recurve or otherwise. My definition of Trad is "single string" there are sub groups that fall under the trad umbrella like: Primitive
Trad Longbow
Modern (hybrid) Longbow
Recurve

And then barebow or sighted. The focus of Trad archery should be the simple joy of shooting a single string bow not the gear snobbery that seems to be the focus here in Australia.

Was 3 under, now 2 under due to ring finger injury.

Split. It was just what I was taught as a kid, and I never tried anything else.

I'm around A LOT of archers. I can't think of even one who shoots three under.

Almost all of them are hunters, maybe that's the reason for the prevalence of split.

Split. I recently went back after giving 3 under a year long try. So many were shooting three under I thought there had to be an advantage to learning it. It just doesn't work as well for me.

I have always used split. Back 40 years ago I tried the three under and became too focused on lining the arrow up with target that I forgot to focus on the target. Needless to say my accuracy and the fun of shooting dropped significantly so I changed back.
