Hungarian... mediteranian or thumb ring?

Anybody know what they used ?
Modern hungarians use mediterainian alot since the hungarians elected a christan king and relinquished their nomadic life style but previously the magyars used the thumb release.

So uniquely in hungarian history and archery both styles are acceptable but med is more modern and thumb more historical almost certainly.

Also the traditional magyar hungarian bow (Offical bow of hungary) is actually a replica apoximation of the original.


There is no shelf on the bow, so one's shooting off the bow hand. If I had to shoot one, I'd use Mediterranean draw and release.
Whichever method you use, you're shooting off the bow hand... thumb on one side, first finger on the other.
