This is something I’ve struggled with for years. I’m much more accurate shooting 3-under, more comfortable shooting split. I’ve often pondered why the difference. Personally, I think besides the ‘nock pinching’ issue some have talked about, I think split finger shooters inadvertently ‘torque’ the string at anchor. And also, in my case, when shooting 3 under and using the pointer finger in the corner of the mouth, the arrow nock is actually more in line with my eye, the rear sight. The absolute best way I have come across to increase my accuracy, with either method of anchor, is Asbell’s “Push/Pull”. When I get that right, my split finger accuracy is close to my 3 under. Shoot the way, aim the way, YOU want. What you do naturally is what you’ll do consistently. And that’s what you want.
