Left Or Right Hand Bow?

by Norman
(Sydney)

I am right eye dominant but my right eye is long sighted +0.5


My left eye is sharper. I am trained right handed and my right arm is stronger as well.

Should I be using a left hand bow?

My logic is my bow hand will be more steady with the stronger arm and my focusing with left eye will be sharper.

Thanks

Norman

Consider Age And Dedication To Change
by: Coach Zeober

Hi Norman
This is somewhat of a tricky situation. Without knowing more about the individual I cannot make a recommendation however, I can say that if you are an older archer the eye dominance can be re-trained much easier than the motor skill.

FYI – Your stronger hand has already developed the fine motor skill that is required for controlling the bow.

What you need to consider is that the weaker arm with less motor skill will hold the riser (bow) and the stronger hand with more developed motor skill will manipulate the bow string and determine anchor position.

Getting off the bow string cleanly (finger release) or manipulating a release mechanism is going to be the key to greater accuracy providing your less dominant hand can brace and support the riser/bow.

I would suggest you read: http://www.learn-archery.com/right-or-left-hand.html
