Interesting observation!

The wider the gap between the retention and release cords is, the faster the ammo exits the pouch after you let go of the release cord.


Would it then be even better to place the retention cord on your ring finger?


I wouldn’t say wider is better necessarily. It just changes the timing a tiny bit. Wider spreads will also cause the pouch to roll back and forth during a swing too, so your ammo position in the pouch will change depending on the relative angles of the two cords when you let go.
