Hello everyone.

I'm new to both archery and this forum. I don't like the computer so much, so I'll keep it short.
Question: Should I stick with way to position my draw hand on the strings (three under or one over) or switch it up depending on distance?

What I've tried: I have greater accuracy with three under when withing 20 meters. But I have greater accuracy with one over beyond 20 meters unless I'm shooting down hill.

What do you suggest? Keep it consistent or change it up depending on the conditions?

Thanks,
Enoch

I am no expert but I would pick one and stick with it.

If you shoot good under 20 meters with 3 under you shoot good over 20 meters with it to Surprised . The "problem" is just in your head man.....Stick to 3 under all the way Wink

I too am new to traditional archery. I started out shooting split finger because I just assumed that was how it was done. I had never seen anyone shoot three under. When I tried three under, it all started coming together for me. my shooting became more consistant, I began to judge distances much better and I just plain shot better. My arrows even had more true flight out of my bow shooting three under.With split finger they would porpous and wobble to the target.

I prefer 3 under, it puts the point closer to the target for me. When I made the change from split to 3 under I quit tearing up my fence. I think that I shot split finger with a compound for so long it just never seemed natural to me until I made the change, even then it took some getting used to but the rewards have been plentiful. I personally believe that 3 under is the ticket, if for no other reason the guys that I've seen win 3D shoots all shoot 3 under.

I set most of my nock points on the string at around 5/8 inch above the shelf for 3 under making it a little higher than split finger. I was lucky to get my first custom bow that was made for me with a larger grip for my big paws and it is tillered for 3 under. The porpoise that you described is most likely from your string nock placement.
