    Default To the dark side I go!!!!!

    I'm going left handed!!!!

    Bought an '08 Bowtech Equalizer.

    Decided to go left handed because I'm left eye dominant. Pulling 40lbs and not doing too bad at it. I'm having to build up my stamina though.

    Here's a pic of me shooting Left handed... and a pic of me shooting right handed....



    I think the form's good...so what do you guys think?

    your form looks good with the new bow. why are you extending the fingers on your left hand though? you didnt do that righthanded.....
    you can also see less tension in your face from not having to squint you left eye closed.

    I made the switch to left handed a few years ago too and I shoot better now than I ever did right handed. I think you'll be happy with the results.

    My fingers are still relaxed on my right hand when I'm shooting. I think they look extended because I haven't quite found the comfortable spot yet. I'm still trying to get consistant.

    J.C...... you and I can be on the dark side together!

    Looks like a good decision.

    Face looks 100% more relaxed in the lefty photo.

    It's so cool now to be able to look through both eyes and not squint!! I can actually see the arrow flight now!
