    Since getting the new Vertix and shooting the past 3 days I kind of developed a bad habit..going from an Elite to a Mathews somewhere along the way I changed anchor or just plain have not gotten used to a completely different bow..Now, I use a peep and a kisser and touch the tip of my nose with the string..and yet, still not consistent..I am going to try the jawbone and locked into the back side of my thumb..I guess it's like hooking bone to bone.. maybe like this guy...what do you do to get more consistent? 2-String-Contact-ATA.jpg

    My concern would be over the term "locked in". If i dig into my face when I'm trying to find my anchor i get too much pressure and left/ right inconsistency

    Don’t shoot lake this guy. From the picture you can tell he’s got poor form and setup. He’s leaning back which means his hips are probably thrust forward he should be standing tall like the letter T. His front shoulder is up in his ear should be down and level with back shoulder. His head looks like it may be tipped down which may be a result his peep being too low or his leaning back and shoulder up. The placement of your anchor that you talk about is good just don’t dig, burry, or mash your hand into your face it will cause left right inconsistencies. A solid contact is what you are looking for not hovering next to or behind your jaw but making consistent solid light contact in the same place every time.

    Have seen several certainly a different way of shooting I think it would take years of dedicated practice to accomplish this.
