Default Hey there Daniel Boone, check out this pic

And answer me a question. How many Pro's or even Joe shooters do you see on the 3-d courses shooting with their loop set up like this? I was told about this method a few years ago, and I have found that I shoot a little better with my loop tied this way (under the arrow nock). I also use a spring steel rest. I was just curious how common this is among other shooters. Thanks in advance. Josh

I know that in the Straight Talk from Michael Braden instructional video Michael Braden is shooting with his d-loop like this. He's had more than just a little success over the years as a Pro. Also shoots a wrist release.

There may be two or three pros shooting with loop under, Mike is/was one not sure he still does. It has both advantages and disadvantages...

Disadvantages are it can create nock travel where there was none.. and on shorter bows with long draw lengths it can cause the arrow to drop off the string and you usually must re-nock on a let down...

Advantages it puts downward pressure on the arrow rest and the arrow is less likely to fall off during the draw or in the wind.. and the loop can be shorter.

In essence it is the same as using a release with a rope instead of a loop..which most of us stopped using and went to the tied in loop because of the disadvantages listed above..

I know guys that have been shooting this way for years. Mostly indoor target shooters. I haven't seen in much outdoors it works better for the guys who is using a back tension release they don't have as mush travel on the relaese.

I can see how this applies more down pressure on the arrow rest when drawing back.

But how would this change the amount of travel in your release?? Having the loop a lower on the string then before

Just try it and you see. I have freind that has shot this way for year with a back tension and he shoot 300 60 X time after time. I think Zenith has a pace on it on ther info on shooting a loop. I have tried it and the loop it's has got to be tuned more to get it to go off. I didn't like the loop to much angle on back tension release. The loop under the nock work more like the rope thats was on the release.

I know some find it to be a good way. Nathan Brooks at times as shot his like this. Popular on one cams with some.

Javi gave a great answer.

The first loop I had put on my bow years ago was installed at the pro shop like this. I shot it that way for a year. Seemed to work fine.
