    Nice one! I am not sure if I would not prefer to shoot it with the fork angled forwards, though. <br><br>I tested with the backwards canting, so you can hold the fist angled down like shooting a P08 pistol - but my wrist is the strongest when the fist is totally straight.

    I don't think so, this follows the line of Nathan's Hare Splitter... not great for really heavy bands.

    I've been sent this in reply to you all:<br><br>The cant is designed so your hand and arm is extended completely straight, if you grip a pencil in your fist and hold your arm out perpendicular you will notice it points forward. The cant is designed so the forks are straight, helping eliminate wrist strain when shooting heavy bands.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Try holding your arm out in front of you with your palm open, then using your other hand place a pencil in the palm that's out extended and close your grip. You will notice the pencil points forwards unless you lift your wrist towards yourself. </span>
     
  15. Maybe it's just from shooting bows for so long but it's completely vertical. No forward tilt.

    Hmmm I can't see how, I'll make a video and post it up here to explain myself a little better maybe.
     
  17. I'm not doubting what you say, I just can't get it to work. As I said I think it's from shooting bows as long as I have (over 20 years) my wrists don't "break" naturally anymore.

    It is true that a pencil will be tilted very slightly to the front when you do that palm test. But replace the pencil with a 30 cm long wooden rod, and apply a tiny bit of force to the tip - then the hand automatically moves and you are holding it like in my picture. <br><br>I tested these angles very extensively in order to find out what position allows me to use the strongest bands. It always is that 90-degree-angle between the handle and the forearm. <br><br>It is easy, just replace the bands with rope and use a fishing scale between the pouch and the end of the rope. Then pull, as hard as possible. I did that, and the result was very clear. For me, the 90 degree angle is the best. <br><br>Having said that, this may be different for others. <br><br>

    <span class="postbody"><br>Yes Jeorg, I've verified the same, that little angle is very useful when applying the full draw force, I got used to reach exact 90° (using a full height mirror, to correct posture)</span>
