Just wondering how many of you regularly shoot both OTT and TTF? Shoot one way yesterday and another today, or switch back and forth the same day. For those that do switch it up, do you find it an easy transition?
I shoot both. I have more trouble with fork width differences than with ott vs ttf. I just don't like changing my anchor point. I want to hit what I am after on the first shot. If I switch too much I second guess my anchor point. It takes me a shot or 2 to get elevation correct.
Same as Mr Brooks said...when i switch between frames regularly its the same...no adjustments required
However, I find if i shoot OTT for a long time before i switch back to TTF, when i do use the TTF frane i will get a couple of fork hits until i get my form back to perfect...its because OTT is more forgiving and can cause me to get sloppy with squaring up my forks...it doesnt affect my accuracy with OTT...but it is important to get the shot through the forks cleanly with TTF.....
Thats my theory anyway...
I am in the exploring phase and more focused on grip, bands, pouches and aiming. I primarily go back and forth between a Kit Fox hybrid and an Alley Cat. The Kit Fox is a hammer grip with an arm brace, heavy tubes, shot instinctively, and TTF. The Alley Cat is “hook-hook” (pinch grip), pseudo tapered 1842’s, aimed, and also shot TTF. I also shoot a Rambone 2.0 (hammer grip) and a PP HTS both OTT and with flat bands. At my stage, I do not see much difference between OTT & TTF. I see a lot of difference with the other variables.
I've been shooting OTT and just recently acquired a TTF. I'm having a hard time adjusting to TTF and find myself reaching back for my OTT frames. Is there an advantage to thru the forks? Or is that a whole separate post/topic?
I use to but found I enjoyed OTT more, even though I was in the early days more accurate TTF. Have been thinking about trying TTF again as well, with the longer daylight hours and more opportunities to shoot outdoors.
