"over draw"
« on: April 01, 2020, 08:02:00 PM »
I've discovered something and I need some dialog on this subject if possible.  I read on hear but do not post much and there is a lot of folks who know a thing or two.  Ok here is my discovery and topic for discussion:
I have a brand new toelke whistler 60" 48# @ 28" set at 7 5/8" brace height tuned with a traditional only 3 Rivers 500 spine shaft with 250g total up front cut to just under 29", I shoot three under.  My draw length is at best 27.5", That's the stats.  Now trying to use my back muscles and best form possible I sometimes am on target pretty good and really try to expand my draw.  I've been shooting the last 2 days without me trying to expand and get the "extra" length to my draw with my back muscles and just solid anchor full draw with no back engaged and my accuracy has improved fantastic.  Talk to me about what I see as overdraw and it effecting accuracy.  I am loving this new found accuracy and am for one not changing.  Thoughts? and thanks for all the knowledgeable people on this forum.

Depends on what you mean as "over draw."  Expansion Is not over draw!  As a person expands correctly, the string hand DOES NOT move on the face.  IF it does, then you aren't "expanding" you are just pulling farther back.  And yes, that will affect your accuracy.

My anchor does not change.  I'm going to check out what my draw length is next both ways.  Also I have a very basic question:  does brace height increasing from as an example from 7" to 8" have an effect on speed or energy of the arrow when shot?

Probably.  An increase of 1 inch of brace height will basically shorten the power stroke so a little slower arrow.

I have been guilty of drawing a bit further back than my form will stand.  Once i came to terms w letting my back determine " full draw" i find that my fingers are anchoring nearer the front of my mouth.  Alignment is good and arrows go right down the pike.  When i overdraw, my body seems to explode and the shot yielding left and right misses.  Arnes form videos are excellent resources and he really helped me.
