    Draw wobbles are caused by too much tension in the draw hand and wrist. Keep your wrist relaxed and pull from the elbow not the hand.
    Fitting one of the red Launchtec blades can help as they don't bounce as much as a metal blade

    Also, try drawing to a place about 4 inches to the right of your jaw and then swinging your elbow around to come to anchor. If you draw directly to anchor it causes a lot more strain on the arm muscles.

    You also might try putting a few turns of electrical tape on the blade.
    just point,pull & click the mouse button

    Sorry guys I missed your posts! GoneBad - I haven't had a draw wobble for ages. I think it started (in fact I KNOW) when I tried a hinge release; let a few arrows off unexpectedly, became almost "scared" of the bow, got nervous, bought (for 200!) a nice Carter thumb trigger release, had a brief flurry of success then it got worse, finally listened to Jerry and bought a nice wrist release from him and gradually pulled it back. I now don't worry at all.
    And yes as you advice I do pull slightly "out" then tuck in - feels more comfortable.

    I think the angle of draw and the tension in my drawing hand AND arm just didn't work with my simple little brain (I was quite clever once - I blame many years of kickboxing).
