Adding a D loop to my string?
« on: February 12, 2019, 11:04:59 AM »
A couple of guys I shoot with tell me I would shoot better with a loop. I shoot well now but always open to improvement. Anyone out there experience a better outcome by adding a loop?

If youíre talking a D loop, it is a better method than using nock sets; less wear and tear on your string. Not sure if it increases accuracy?

Yes, thanks. I meant D loop.

Pretty easy to do, lots of YouTube videos on it that explain it better than I can here. I canít say definitively, but I would think the balanced pull around the nock would lead to better accuracy than pulling above or below.

It also keeps you from adding torque to the string, not that I know its a big deal.  But with being hooked to the D loop it cant twist without affecting the string much at all.

long draw lengths or short ata bows definitely can have a accuracy increase with the addition of a d loop, it eliminated knock pinch for me, and helped mask shooting form issues (string torque).

Your arrows will fly straighter and be influenced basically none by nock pinch with a D loop. Yes you should expect to shoot better with a D loop. Probably notice it more after spinning a broad head onto your arrow. Unless you fine tune your bows with bare shafts.
