Javi, move loop to change aiming tendencys?
I have a parallel limb bow that I am working on. It wants to hold low on the spot (indoor bow). I've moved my peep up just a touch and that helped but it's still holding low a bit.
Release is back tension hinge. Cam sync is perfect. Binary Cams.
Now my question is this. If I lower or raise the loop/arrow relationship to the berger hole, will this help some?
Since the bow is holding low, do I slightly lower the arrow/loop combination or raise it.
Thanks for any thoughts or advice

You can do that, but before you do have someone look at your shoulder/arrow and see if it is parallel when you are aiming at shoulder height.. One of the most common causes of the bow aiming low is anchor height, then nock location/grip pressure. It is rare today to find limbs so imbalanced as to cause this, but it can occur.Mike "Javi" Cooper

Down with the anchor...
A little goes a long ways on the nock point...
Generally I like the center of the loop to be directly behind the arrow at full draw, but you can get a push up by having the center of the loop above the arrow at full draw.. the loop can tell you a lot about setup.Mike "Javi" Cooper

It was originally intended to replicate the release rope that we started all this with, the primary advantage is that it puts downward pressure on the arrow shaft which can help hold the arrow on the rest. But with proper nock tuning this is easily accomplished without the built-in nock travel associated with this style. Not that it canít produce accurate shots, as we all know if the travel is repetitive it isnít a factor except in tuning for it.
The other disadvantage of this style is that on shorter A2A bows with a longer bow it can actually create such an abrupt angle that the nock is actually displaced from the string during the draw this can also be a factor when shooting a wide jaw release off the string. .Mike "Javi" Cooper
