Solid and Consistent

January 31, 2019


The only effective way to shoot well every single time is with a solid and consistent anchor position.

If your anchor is different for each shot, your arrow will impact the target at different locations even if you had the same point of aim with each shot.

Some archers are afraid of the bowstring being to close to the face and consequently, they cannot achieve a consistent anchor position.

I call this a floating-anchor which is actually an oxymoron. An anchor simply cannot float and be effective at the same time…so for our purposes, the term floating-anchor is very applicable.

Make a mental note of where you position your hands and string on your face until you find a comfortable place that you will use every time you anchor. (See the diagram above for a common anchor position used by most top archers)

See you on the range,
