Tobias is having great success with his "fistgrip" release technique. This made me thinking - is it time for a completely new approach to the release issue?
Made a quick and dirty prototype today with leftover multiplex. I was afraid that it ain't possible to hold the thing together when drawing out, but in fact it is necessary to consciously open your hand!
This opens the door to completely new power dimensions. In most cases, it the the pouch hand, not the arm and shoulder muscles, that determine the draw. This eliminated the need for a strong hand.
And it is soo easy to make. All you need is a bit of wood and a hinge.
I will optimize this over the weekend. An even more canted release angle will allow for a totally relaxed fist position, and even slightly enhance the draw length.
