    Right now I'm working on increasing draw weight. I'm currently on #30 slowly increasing to #40. The problem is that my 3pin sight is already at its lowest setting, with all pins pushed as far down as possible. Aiming with the highest of the three pins I'm consistently shooting 3" low. I'm already shooting off the shelf, no rest. Are there any multi pin sights for recurves? I can't think of anything else I could do. Any suggestions gratefully appreciated

    change your anchor point? In watching a lot of YouTube videos I see people using all kinds of draw styles and anchor points.

    Not sure if you do, but a lot of guys use 3 fingers under (none on top) and that brings the anchor point higher (sighting more along the arrow shaft.) By lowering the anchor point it brings your eyes and line of sight higher.

    The closer your anchor point is to your eye the lower the pins will be.
