Quick Disconnect Angle or Not for Hunting

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I’m thinking of installing a quick disconnect on my hunting bow. I’ve seen that they make a straight, 8 or 10 degree one. I’ve looked but haven’t seen them mounted on any bows. What would you recommend and if someone has a 8 or 10 degree one on their bow, can I see a picture? Also any specific brand? I’ve good things about the one Coolhand Luke made but I haven’t seen him on in a while.

Release angle at longer distance

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hi all.

I started using a pull through release last summer – Stan Element – and moved to a the Tru Ball BT Gold late in the winter. Blank baling with both I then moved to targets and achieved a level of accuracy that I had never seen before. I was shooting very well and consistently between 20 and 30 yds. And I mean really well compared to my former scores.

That 40 yard target was calling me again and again, lol, but I held on at 30 max until I was very confident.

My confidence fell through the floor yesterday. Yea, I listened to the siren’s call and warmed up then moved to 40 yds. After a long afternoon, too long of course as my shooting time increases directly with how poorly I’m shooting, which, of course makes me tired and my shots worse, which makes me want to shoot longer to get it right, etc etc etc.

I was all over the place (even before I was tiring out that is). What I had never noticed before with a trigger release, is how much the release angle changes with increased yds as the bow angle changes. My well practiced roll + back tension was compromised. Everything felt wrong.

Any tips for this particular problem? Should I be forcing the release to stay at a parallel to the ground even when raising the angle of the bow?

I’m stumped.

TIA

All blessings

Nock Angle with Helical Feathers

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

First of all. Happy New Years and Thanks for all the previous advice posted on my Arrow questions. I am using Carbon Express II 800 with 5" Helical Feathers. They seem to be spined well on the Samick Sage 30# at my 29.5" draw length. One thing I noticed is the calf hair rest is getting chewed up a bit on the shelf. My nocks are set up so that the cock feather is perpendicular to the riser facing out with reference to the rear of the feather. Or if looking at the back of the arrow the nock is vertical with the string (obviously) and the edge of the rear shield feather is exactly 90 degrees to the nock. This is what i have read is correct for off the shelf. But, With the Helical fletching, the leading edge of the feather is several degrees further left or counter clockwise on the shaft. It is apparently striking the hair rest on the shelf and chewing it up a bit. My question is should I rotate the nock a bit and trade off between the leading and trailing edges of the LW Feather to avoid this? Maybe a straight Fletch would be better on these thin carbon shafts anyway but I have to deal with these arrows I have. Another thing i need to mention is that I did not completely cover the entire shelf with the calf hair plate. I cheated and cut it in half and placed it on the apex of the shelf where the shaft would contact it. Is this not correct? I have also seen some hair rests and strike plates set up with a small gap between them for the fletching to move through? Is this effective? The good news is, it is New Years Eve and I just shot my first 75 arrows at 7 yards. No major problems, I only missed the entire bag once, (the wife will find that hole in the extra fold out table next gathering), I had some 3" groups so apparently I did remember something from my childhood and that Bear Fiberglass Recurve I got when I was 7 years old? It was very Cool. I was so excited to shoot that I forgot to put a nock on my string so i just placed arrows perpendicular to the shelf. Who cares when you shoot your first arrow at six feet away from a great big $ 50 dollar yellow bag with a hornet on it, and you have really now idea where the arrow is going to go. Yep, 7 years old again…. Priceless.
