    Look what happens on release !

    Taking some photo's of archery_mum at a training session tonight I captured the following image just after release. I found it interesting to see the difference in the string below the arrow. The string above the arrow seems hardly to move but below it is nearly invisible. This photograph is not retouched in any way.

    When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandad did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car

    I feel this is very similar to my comments about string pattern immediately following release in the photos you published here recently. Welbeck was it?
    bring me my bow of burning gold, bring me my arrows of desire....

    Does that mean that the bottom cam is going faster than the top?

    Very cool picture

    Yes it reflects the pattern. I have a couple of images from tonight illustrating this (someone you know ) but what I was not aware of from the Welbeck photos was how the string seemed to remain above the nock point. It looked like the string went into the shape but as it travelled away from the archer. This seems to show that the bottom section accelerates much faster.

    Anna it is common across all bows I have photographed including recurve (see the photos I just added) I would like someone to explain why it happens as there must be a scientific explanation.
