Forward to the 1:00 minute mark. This setup is a modified cocking top with two harbinger hooks being used instead of rope cocking hooks. Actually is pretty darn cool.
I use the 'Cossack' method on my Mission and a short 8" piece of arrow loaded as a real arrow. It defeats the ADF and drops out of the way as you let the string down. On compounds like the MXB, I think I could hold the letdown with one finger. On the heavy recurves like Micro 355, BD400 and above, you might want to use 3 fingers... but still trivial to hold back and let down slowly.Smong, are you defeating the ADF from the side or what?
I think he's talking about loading the short arrow not actually letting the string down.Fingers are nowhere close. One set is by the trigger (back of string), the others hold the handle.
