Trigger release for my bow

Canada
July 17, 2016 5:33pm CST
So I've ruined another pair of gloves, and still ripped up my draw finger a little-I decided that I would investigate buying a trigger release for the bow. I have been doing archery on and off for more then half of my life, but have been stubborn about this, because to be honest...well, it just seemed kinda wimpy to me. But I thought "whatever" and decided to give it a try. At first it was really weird shooting with it, but I got used to it pretty quickly, and then the accuracy picked up again. Almost right away I noticed something though, one, yeh there was no rope burns on my fingers, but also, the way my draw hand reacted to the weight was a lot different too-it was a lot easier on the joints in my fingers. So, for anyone curious, if a person is shooting a bow which is of higher weight, I actually would recommend this-especially if they are thinking about accuracy, it does reduce some of the roll over which drawing with fingers produces at times. I'm pleased with it. But that said, I still do feel kinda...wimpy. But um, if a person is shooting a 60 pound recurve bow which they made and they are feeling wimpy over something which is simply prudent, well, then they probably have other issues because... Acting with intelligence does not make one a wimp...and confusing the two, just kinda makes one foolish.

Very well said and, I actually prefer a lighter bow, but sure it's awesome still and, good idea for the trigger release.

Yeh, the lighter bows can still do the job, like, even if a person wanted to hunt deer, generally speaking the bylaws for that are usually 40 pounds, here and in the States-for something like rabbit, I actually don't know of restrictions on it, and some of my 20 pound recurves will penetrate and actually react faster then some of my heavier wooden bows-poundage in a bow isn't everything.

I'm glad you got a trigger for your bow and it's working well for you. I don't think it's wimpy but wise.

Right. You're not wimpy, you're efficient.
