brand new trad shooter here im having some trouble
im bare shaft testing for correct spine, arrows are hitting pretty strait as far as nock being right down the middle at 20 yards bareshaft
problem is, at 20 yards I have to aim about 24” low to hit my mark. Any way to fix this. Even at 30 yards I have to aim a foot or more low to hit where I want, heres my set up
62” recurve bow set at 45lbs
3050 carbon express Predator arrow
29” carbon to carbon arrow length
125 grain screw in tip
im doing a 3 finger under anchor with my top finger corner of my mouth, and im ripping my lips apart on many of the shots. Any help is wanted

Do to the arc of the arrow, if you are using point of the arrow as a sight – You will have to aim low, until your point on distance is reached. ( usually closer with a 3 under shooter, somewhere around 30yds or less – split finger is usually 50-+). If you use your middle finger as the anchor it should lessen this somewhat. These comments are from memory back when I tried 3 under. I shoot instinctive /split finger. Either is fine, just what one likes better. You might try the string walking technique also, if you like to ” point on ” at closer ranges.
Maybe Stephen will comment as I believe he shoots 3 under

Hey Adam. right on for picking up the recurve! You’ll most likely become really addicted.
You’re experience with using the tip of the arrow is pretty normal. Most folks who use that sighting system have a point on distance somewhere around 40-50 yards, like Raymond said. You could move your anchor around on your face, or increase your weight a lot. Or just get used to shooting the way it does.
Good luck man!
