    the arrows that are going nock up and not hitting straght are not heavy enough for that bow it is to fast for those arrows the one arrow that hit straght see what the wieght is and use more of them

    smooth1962 is correct, the spine of the arrows have to be matched to the maximum pull weight of the bow. I shoot a 55# recurve but I pull to 30 1/2 inches so I use 65# arrow spines. also your nock point on your bow string is important I use a whipped nock, most people use a crimp on nock, but you do have to have a nock point or the nock on the arrow is going to slide on the bow string. where you are attaching your release also make a difference. are you attaching to a d-loop or the bow string. and just an fyi, log shooting is really hard on the arrows. I use a high density poly foam back stop, the arrows live longer.

    Thanks for the input larrys. All my arrows are crimp notched to fit the bow string perfect, There is a D-loop I can slide into place for Trigger releasing which is required now as my bow pulls at almost 100lbs but I prefer finger firing as accuracy and speed seem to make up for any lost power. Since I am poor there is no consistency to my arrows, I buy them cheap and used with many different weights and lengths. It is now bow season here tho so I may pick up a few heavy arrows to see if there is a difference. And yes I know shooting arrows at a stump is not an ideal back stop but it was all I had on hand at the time. I usually use a large cube of styrophoam but I have almost shot my way through that.

    I understand the poor part, I'm retired now and living off of savings. what kind of bow are you using? mine's a very old Bear 76'er I bought when I was about your age.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>afaik releases are only used for compound bows with loops attached to the bow string. never saw someone using it on a recurve or other bow.<br><br>try using a short strong compound bow without it, and you know, thats nearly impossible. also there's too less space for your fingers between the angle of the string and the arrow nodge.<br><br>i don't own bows but i bought a trigger release for shooting arrows with my slingshot and i'm very pleased with it.</span>
