Who uses one and what are your thoughts on it? Do you mount it above or below your sight?

Backspin & Sigma.. same anchor? #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Has anybody shot both? Able to use the sam anchor point? They look to be similar size/shape.

I’ve got a Backspin, but not sure I’m confident enough with it yet to hunt with it. Was thinking about trying the Sigma if it’s the same anchor.

Or can anyone recommend a hinge & thumb release with the same anchor?

Plumb-Bob, Anchor, & Aim

If you are not prone to insanity, please read no further.

I recently shifted my anchor point to a slightly different location. I noticed, after many shots on four different bows (recurve and longbow), that my eye was grabbing its aim quite nicely. My usual anchor was fine, but often I would get a bit of some cross-eyed conflict during the aim.

Using my new anchor, the cross-eye seemed gone, and my eye seemed to comfortably sit well atop the arrow-to-target alignment in a consistent manner (I’m a split-vision, or "guess-gapper" guy).

In a moment of sheer, disruptive mental chaos, I decided to make a quick plumb-bob (old bow string and two-pound spine test weight) and stand in front of a mirror in the bathroom to perform, what is known as in scientific circles, the "Bear Went Over the Mountain" Test (to "see what he could see").

Holding the string of the plumb-bob against my forehead, I let it dangle vertically in front of my eye’s pupil as the weight sat upon the bathroom counter top (instant stability – no swing). Then I assumed something of a shooting stance and head angle, observing where the string, when directly across the pupil, crossed my lower face.

After some tilting and twisting of the head, all the while shifting the string to stay across my pupil while noting the variety of positions that the string crossed both on and off my face area, I put my draw hand into close proximity of my former and newer anchor positions. This is not exact, for without a string being drawn, the draw hand and touch points are not precisely where they would be during a real draw. I also had to guess where the arrow’s nock would be between my fingers.

However, I was able to notice the difference in "where under the eye" between the two positions by comparison with the plumb-bob’s string. And indeed, the newer anchor that inspired this wacky research was more directly under the eye than the prior anchor.

After noting this, I proceeded to move the head with an anchor in place, ranging from tilting from straight to cant as well as twisting the head toward and away from the imaginary target. This was shockingly varied as to eye-over-shaft positioning.

My conclusion? Well, you got me there! Obviously there is a mathematical vertical line from eye to ground that crosses on or off the face at a precise point. It is variable due to body angle, head angle, face shape, anchor point, and bow angle. Does anyone need to perform this experiment to improve their shooting? Certainly not. Should anyone? Probably not.

However, as the nature of the anchor is highly connected to the aim and sight picture, this retro-peekaboo to find out perhaps what was different to my eye between the two anchors was absolutely instructive.

Thank you for listening.
