In an earlier thread today regarding ideal bow weight, George Stout mentioned the term "dynamic release". Could we have a bit of discussion about what dynamic release means (or even some thoughts about the importance of "release", in general?) Yep - - cabin fever is here in Michigan!!
Thanks [pray]

Check the Shooters Froum, the pro's and con's of a dynamic and static release have been discussed extensively there.

The broadhead used, regardless of how sharp, is nowhere as important as being able to place it in the correct spot.

Dynamic release is,as I know it, is a release where the hand upon release comes back after the release,kind of a follow through.This happens when, after anchor and aimimg, and continually pulling back while the string slips away from the fingers,allows the release in motion.Most all olympic shooters use this release as opposed to the dead or static release,where there is very little movement of the hand and point of anchor as the string slips from the fingers.

Thats my interpetation of it.

consistancy!! I'm no expert but when you let go of something that's 40-80# and you let go of it(release)your hand will go in the opposite direction to some degree or another. Whatever you do it needs to consistant(of course). The one advantage I could see with a more static release is you might not be as apt to creep on release. Three things that come to mind that really need consistancy is your release, finger pressure the same with string fingers( I use split and 70% on middle finger,20% indes,10%ring) whatever pressure you use it must be the same. The second is the bow hand high wrist, low wrist, just make sure you put the bow in the same spot every time. The third is your release, my best results happen when my fingers touch my shoulder.-- Steve

I did an experiment a year ago that turned out to be interesting. I tried to do a static release until I was pretty sure I was executing it correctly and that my hand was not going back at all. I then shot from a position in which my draw elbow at full draw had a wall a few inches behind it. On my "static" release my elbow hit the wall every time even when I was sure it felt like a completely static release. This convinced me that all releases are dynamic, but not all look and/or feel dynamic.
OK, so it wasn't a scientific experiment, but it convinced me not to worry about whether my release is dynamic or static.

in essence, a dynamic release is, or is as close to as possible, a 'surprise' release. difficult to achieve with fingers, easiest with a release aid.

when the string fingers unconscientiously slip off the bowstring at full draw, your string hand moves quickly to the rear of your head and inline with the arrow. the bow punches forward and not down or either side. this dynamic release is achieved by constantly pulling rearward, even after achieving anchor. there was a time when this was called the 'push-pull' method of aim/release.

a static release is when you conscientiously stop pulling, and tell yerself to let go of the string.

most top archers never stop pulling on the string, come to anchor, feel their back muscles take on the load, continue the rearward string pressure, allow the fingertips to roll off the string, string hand flies directly rearward, bowhand and bow punch directly forward, arrows finds the mark.

I was taught to use the dead release as a child and still struggle at times not to shoot it.I get much better flight and groups with a dynamic release.
