I always use a string loop that way I don't tourque the string with my release, even though the release I use has a free floating head. Plus it means less wear and tear on my serving.Abnoba said:If you are using a thumb release on your Ross...how is everyone nocking the release? Such as....directly to bow string with nocking loop of the release? Do you use a bottom nock on string with that? Or are you tying in a D loop on the string and nocking the release to the d-loop? Just curious? Thanks....looking for some ideas to make my Cascade work better with my 334.
