    Half inch to long in these pictures, plus there is zero bend in your left arm. I would recommend at least 1 inch shorter draw length than what is in these pics.

    Nice bow!!

    I think its because I was so used to the old DL that I want to hyper extend my arm. after redrawing I put bend in my arm and the string went right to the tip of my nose. I definitly need to strengthen my bow arm a little. Thank you

    Hey Louie how ya doin??'

    I agree you still look about 1/2" too long. One more inch and put some bend in the left elbow. Oh and try to aim level when checking form, do not aim low.

    You need to have the tip of your nose not the side touching that string and then your draw arm might come down a bit too. Seems you are lifting up a bit higher than you should be because of the draw length. Like Cameron said you should have some bend in your arm, not a ton just a tad.

    Shorten the loop and drop your anchor slightly. This may take care of it. Your loop looks to be an inch long at least.

    it doesnt feel like I am full stretch anymore by any means, like my last DL. It feels like I have more control and holding strength, if that makes any sense.

    I would also like to learn to use my release better. Kinda like squeezing a pistols trigger rather than pull it, I feel like a hit the trigger rather than fire it.

    That's most likely because the release is too long, putting the trigger too close to the fingertip. If you can try adjusting it shorter, like with the trigger clear back to where the finger meets the hand before you hook up to the string. If need be you can even use your middle finger to do the shootin..

    I agree with Chris about the bow's draw length. It's fairly close and may need a bit of refinement, but most of your problem right now is with the right arm. You're just overstretched on that side. The loop could easily lose
    1/2". Maybe try a release with a short head designed for loops (trigger forward design).

    Then get some more pictures. By then you should be pretty good on form.

    I pull the trigger with all four fingers, like my hand is in a mitten. It keeps me from punching the trigger.

    With that mean look on your face, you could use some skulls on that bow.

    I got an idea just try this......

    hook your release directly to your string under the loop and take a pic of it for me at full draw.....

    just for a pic or 2....
    I cut things up and split them down!
