First field score, blech!
Well, it wasn't totally horrible. I shot the first 14 with my back tension and the second 14 with the Just Cuz.
First 14, 257
Second 14, 268
After shooting the second half, I went back to shooting the back tension to try to figure out what I was doing wrong and I did.
I proceeded to pound a group with 10 arrow at 40 yards that I thought was very good. Any tighter and nocks would be breaking.
I found out that if I didn't pay attention to the angle of the back tension release in my hand then I would get flyers that would go left. By rotating my hand a bit more and keeping the back of my hand against my face, the flyers "almost" totally disappeared. I still would occasionally cheat the release and would get a left shot, but that is normal. It reminds you, don't cheat it.
It will be interesting to shoot another round with the back tension.

Oh, Chris, the Carter large knurned trigger does in fact worh with the Solution 3. We had that conversation a while ago and I never did get back to you on that. I bought one and tried it and it works great.

I was having the same problem one night shooting indoors.....all of a sudden my shots were high, low, left, right.......then I relized I wasnt keeping the back of my hand against my face.....so in turn I wasnt repeating my anchor....went back to holding against my face.....started hitting X's again....I cut things up and split them down!
