      What am I suppose to do with my string fingers? Im 3 under and I dont know if I am suppose to slowly release tension in my fingers and let the string pull out or am I suppose to kinda roll my fingers off the string? OR is there something else completely different? Thanks for the help, Squirrel Master.

      Hey, I am a one over two under shooter, but I believe that the release technique is the same. I basically just relax my fingers and let the string to the work. It is almost as if I let the string slip through my fingers.

      I found watching this video helpful to me for string hand.


      Also something similar in G. Fred Asbell’s book “Advanced Instinctive shooting” he talks about trying to hold and release a paint can with a the thin handle form about 6″ off the ground and if you do it right the can fall on the ground and not spill.

      Yes, Jimmy’s video posted above will give you some great ideas to try. I also have a video called “release tips” that may give some more ideas for you to try. You can get to my videos through the link below.
