OK so when my bow was oringinally set up the arrow placement was above the single Knock on the serving. But yesterday when I was getting some arrows sized the guy said I had been doing it wrong it goes below the knock and the string release goes below the arrow. well yesterday after an intese day of turkey hunting my serving started to wear fast so I put another knock bead under where the arrow knock placement someone please tell me I havent been shooting wrong for the last 3 years. Or can it be shooter preference?
I use a D-loop instead of a brass knocking point. In that setup you simply knock the arrow between the two knots that are tied to your bowstring. And, you don't get the serving wear because you're not clipping your release onto your bowstring. I think that's the way more people are going these days...might be something to look into. Good luck
If you use the brass knocking point your arrow should attach under it. It is best to have somthing between your arrow and release, there is a rubber grommit called a berger button that goes on the string to keep the release from touching your arrow, and as the other fellows have suggested the D-Loop is most popular now, I just purchased a new bow and had the D-Loop put on mine. At this time I believe it is the best way to go.
I agree with TopPin56 partially add another knocking point above the arrow,still attach your release below the bottom point the top will prevent the arrow from riding up the string while drawing,I've done mine this way for years,and have had no problems with flight,grouping,or string wear.
In the next week or so I will be going to Ohio,hoping to get in a late season bow hunt.Any of you guys out there from the buckeye state,from around Jefferson county. I'm looking for a public tract of land to hunt on that has little to no pressure.Does anyone know of such a place.I have a few spots that I used to hunt years ago,but too many people know them as well and the last couple of times I hunted them it seemed that the deer have moved out due to too much hunting pressure. Basically looking for a remote area that most wouldn't try to hunt.
If you decide to go with a string loop, I would suggest also tying at least one nock point on. You could tie it above or below inside the loop. This will help in keeping the same nock point when it's time to replace a worn string loop. Also if you find your arrow lifting off the rest during the draw, tie the nock point below your arrows nock. This will cause a slight pinch on the arrow forcing it down against your rest. I tie 2 nock points, one below and one above my arrows nock, both inside the string loop and the lower being just a tad larger than the upper.
I agree with the guy helping you with your arrows. For years I shot with a brass knocking point on my string and always had it below the arrow. In this position it keeps the release from pinching the arrow. For years I went back and forth between the two methods. Today I use the string loop only, but went to bows with a 1/2" shorter draw length.
