    Yep, noticed this with the top Korean lady archers.

    However, there's a difference between novice & top archers:
    Novice: presses head against the string.
    Top archer: presses string against the head.

    But seriously though...
    ...how often do you see archers craning their necks forward to touch the string?

    You know I shot with a master bowman that did just that and moved his head as part of his draw... ;-)

    It's guess as long as you can reproduce the draw anything goes..

    Park Sung Hyun.... nothing else to say there....

    The difference between the Novice and Top Archer is the key - it's not the mark, but how it's made

    My twelve year old daughter ends up with a sore chin after every weekly shoot ,we get in trouble with her mother when we get home.
    Tried a plaster but it doesn't stick.

    Hi Jake, It sounds as if the string may be rubbing along your daughter's jaw as it starts forwards after release. The string should start to move forwards away from the skin at the front of the chin, not rub along the side. I am not saying that is the problem, just that it could be.
