I agree shooting what works for you personally is better than what is most popular.
It's great to see alot of finger shooters still out there I thought we where a dieing breed.

When I was younger I shot a recurve with fingers only. I ended up giving up the bow as I thought that it was too difficult. I had no proper instruction to teach me the proper technique so I was all over the place with my shots and ended up giving up the bow until a couple of years ago. Now with a proper release that all changed. I don't think that I could go back to shooting with fingers.

Actually, I shoot with a release because (to quote my Dad) I am a candy a**. I have abused my hands something awful and refuse to even try finger shooting.

Also, I pay good money to get my nails done and refuse to mess them up. I know, I know, the whole girly thing. This is my one concession to being a girly girl (okay, maybe my second, I do get pedicures regularly also) and I ain't giving it up!! hehe!
