No matter what your skill level as an archer, you are constantly trying to improve. One of the most common but overlooked factors of shooting a bow is having the proper grip. Most beginners start out by wrapping your fingers around the grip and holding firmly. This causes your forearm to twist and sit more in line with the bowstring and when you shoot you’ll be left with a nice red slap mark from your string on your arm.
The biggest problem with wrapping your fingers and gripping firmly is the torque you put on your bow. When you have a firm grip on your bow, it places the riser of the bow out of square with the arrow rest. The result of bow torque is a high percentage of left or right misses. If you are constantly missing left or right, you may want to study the way you are gripping your bow.
Proper grip is one of the most overlooked aspects of improving your accuracy, yet it is easily corrected. Whether you are an expert or a beginner there is always some room for improvement. I had the opportunity to review the True Shot Coach from Don’t Choke Archery and I have to say, I was impressed. I am by no means an expert but felt confident in my form. I thought I’d give this shot coach a chance but not expecting any improvement.
I then shot two rounds of six with the True Shot Coach. When I first shot with the True Shot Coach the tool actually corrected the torque and made it easier to notice where I was lacking. I was surprised by how taking out a little bit of torque helped improve my arrow grouping. So whether you are an expert or a beginner you will benefit from the True Shot Coach. You can pick one up for $16.95 and it does help correct your grip.
