Brian, when I went from wheels to a longbow I had grip problems and about gave it up. Then an old gentleman said to hold that bow like you were picking up a suitcase. If you do that and then just for grins stick your pointy finger out, it will be pointing at what you be wanting to hit. If you hold it like compound grip, your finger will be pointing off towards Tim Buc Tu. Good luck. I have no grip problems whatsoever between my recurve and longbows. Biggest problem I have is a sometimes hittin’ what I wasn’t looking at. 😆
