Pouch Twist?

I am still on the steep part of the learning curve. And as with most other things I do I am probably going about things backwards.

Thinking I may sling hunt ssomeday wanted to make sure power was there. After some experimenting I am confident it is. So now accuracy. Better late than never?

A couple weeks of shooting every day and accuracy is coming along. As is a good case of cheek burn to go along with it.

After much thought, and a bit of video, I am convinced my all the way to the ear anchor is a factor. I decided I could give up an inch of draw length and get around my big head with a cheek or mouth corner anchor.

Cheek rub is much better now and I am figuring out new anchor points.

While experimenting and researching this I came across some past topics and videos on pouch twisting. I tried out the twisting and think I like it. Will give it a try for a week and see if it sticks.

Seems easier for me to get high elbow, ammo holding thumd straight and pointing at target, and rest oof drawing hand relaxed, etc.

While looking at past posts there seemed to be a diversity of opinion on twisting before.

I am curious to pick experienced minds here and listen to current thinking on pouch twisting. I have tried 90 and 180 degrees and the 90 seems to feel good for me here at the start.

Any thoughts, musings, suggestions greatly appreciated.

I turn the pouch 90 degrees..pretty much always have. I went a few months where I tried not to and my accuracy went to pot. I can’t tell you why it helps..I think it’s just a more natural hold, and In turn you get a cleaner release.
