Many of you will likely tell me the proper form for gripping the bow is loose, maybe open fingers, pushing against the palm bone at the base of the thumb. I have only been shooting since February and have gone back and forth in my groupings using the above technique as well as gripping the riser tight, closed fist. In these situations my groups, my confidence, and my steadiness has been the highest when gripping the grip tight, not the loose technique. I have heard that gripping it tight can torque your shot unintentionally, but I haven't run into this. Am I going to damage my future by using the "bad" form? Should I put aside my rookie observations and just stick with open grip knowing that in the long run it will improve my shooting?
