Learn How to Drive a Back Tension Release

In this video, John Dudley teaches a brand new archer how to “drive” a back tension release, including the Silverback Plus and Backstrap, by drawing profound comparisons between driving a car and driving a tension release. When learning to drive a vehicle for the first time, there’s a lot to learn about the fluid motion between the brakes, the gas, and the clutch (for those that grew up learning on a manual transmission), and the same can be said with shot execution on a tension based release. These valuable lessons taught in this video will not only help new archers that are learning the proper method of executing a back tension release, they will also help seasoned archers “stay in the lines” as they drive and properly execute shots with their favorite back tension release.
