    I have been shooting for many years, and have been shooting a Bowtech for about 2 years, and all of a sudden, I am starting to hit my arm with it. I started conciously changing my hand position, which helped, but I shouldn't have to. Could there be something off that could cause this. I was also really off on the weekend, and I am usually alot more consistent.

    Are you keeping your bow arm slightly bent??

    :welcome:

    I have a Switchback XT that I have been shooting for a couple years. During league this year, I was slapping my arm every night that I shot indoors. The last couple nights that I shot, I figured out that my anchor point had changed just enough that I was stretching my arm staighter and slapping my arm. Once I changed my anchor point back to where it should be and bent my elbow a little more, I stopped slapping my arm.

    Hope this helps.

    Check where your feet are, have they moved, open your stance and see what happens...cured the problem for me.

    yup, I concur with the draw length comments........

    did you change releases or anthing else on the bow??

    take off a kisser button??
     
  9. have some one look at your bow while you have it at full draw to see if your cams or limbs are twisting, if they are it may be causing you to grip and/or torqe your bow a little different while shooting it with out you knowing it.:noidea:
