The video would be the quickest way... most can spot a flaw quickly. It may save you some time and headache. Any old timers/pro shooters you can trust to give advice in your area? They could also watch you....

Tim, wrap your grip in something sticky once like tennis racket tape. Then get your hand into the grip and shoot it and see if the problem changes. Just trouble-shooting here.

Bender & FD -

I'll get a photo of my grip soon as I get my camera back,
I don't know how to describe that "compound bow grip".

Here's what I did with two layers of buckskin to prevent frostbite, it's
nice & snug around the riser handle:

Looks to me like your Bear weather rest may be well worn... try a new rest and see if that helps. To me the photo looked like you had worn the rubber rest down on the side..

I replaced the Bear Weather Rest, and shot at 20 yards the other day,
testing some el-cheapo woodies that I just made up [spine matched
but not weight-matched]. I shoot with a clicker and sight.

I did switch to my finger tab, and shooting carefully and slowly,
taking my time between each shot, I managed to group 6 arrows
into a 4" circle, two times. Then I started "breaking down" and the groups
opened up. I have sort of a two-stage draw, coming back somewhat quickly,
then slowly sneaking up on the click, and loosing when I hear it go off. It's
tiring as hell but this is how I've developed to still stay in the game, dealing
with that TP shit.

I went away with huge loud thoughts in my head, something like,

"IT'S ALL ABOUT FORM, YA
DUMMY! FORM! FORM! FORM!"


Whew doggers, have I not been here before? :mrgreen:

Sounds like the form broke down for some reason--fatigue perhaps. Yep, form is always the key. Sounds like you may have a creep or collapse. Just keep pulling through and past that darn clicker. The shot is not over just because it goes off.
