    Being an old finger shooter the corner of my mouth has
    been my anchor point with this release Iím having a
    Problem feeling the release in the corner of my mouth
    Has anyone every modified a release by adding a dimple
    or something on the side of it so you can feel it better

    Button but when the nocks get turned a little bit I lose it

    I guess you do not want to try any new achor points? I use a T handle release and put the 1st two knuckles in my jaw and then put my nose on the string.

    I have tried other anchor points with really bad results and they feel so unnatural

    I put my first knuckle below my ear lob and behind my jaw bone. I used to put my thumb there but was way too inconsistent. I also have the string slightly touching my nose.

    Maybe you should consider a kisser button so you can still have a reference point at the corner of your mouth but anchor a litle lower. You could have multiple reference points, your nose on the string, the kisser, and maybe your knuckle or thumb at the base of your jaw.

    Why not try a kisser ?
    They make an extra parge one that would really give you a good anchor.

    No it would not interfere with anything if your draw length was correct.
    Sorry, I meant 'large' not 'parge'... I was typing with my brain out of gear I guess...
