I have been shooting for around 16 months now. All the time right hand. My dominat eye is the left.
I was at the eye doc not long ago and he told me that my right eye is much weaker than my left.
So i decide to try left hand shooting and wonder if i could have some tips here.
Would it altso be an ide to start shooting with a hinge backtension release?

I have never tried shooting left handed but if I did I would start from scratch and only use back tension. Otherwise, I know I would pick up some bad habits. I would start from the beginning and make sure my form and the release was good so I hopefully would not pick up any bad habits..
