Here’s one from the archives, written by Greg Staggs. For what it’s worth, ever since Greg wrote this piece for me a couple years ago, I have tied my own D-loops exactly as he describes below—and I do think it makes a difference. –Dave Hurteau
The Scoop On Your D-Loop
With the current wild popularity of short axle-to-axle bows, more and more archers are adding a D-loop to the string to shoot with a caliper-style release. This is smart on the one hand. Because of the very sharp angle created when you draw a short bow, the added loop makes for less torque, less nock pinch, and less serving wear compared with shooting directly off the string.
