I'm about 1.5 months into archery. I'm slowly increasing my draw weight on my Mathews V3X 29 and I'm discovering that I'm getting a slight "pinch" sensation in my index & middle fingers when drawing my bow around ~57lbs. It's not painful, but it definitely doesn't feel like it should be happening. It's happening with both the Nock 2 It (Carter Wise Choice) and Spot Hogg Whippersnapper. I have the release in the pad of my finger between my first and second knuckle.

Has anyone experienced this or something similar?

I have had some tension in my hand. I would try using your back muscles more then death gripping and pulling with your hand

I mean I get calluses where you are talking about and that can hurt a little but honestly no I have never experienced anything like that. Have someone who knows what they are doing look at your release hand or video yourself and upload it so people can see what you are doing.
