Odd question. Bought me some new Quarks, but I've never had axes with a trigger. Where should the trigger be? Should my trigger finger always be on it? i.e. you set it up so your first 3 fingers are below it and your trigger finger on it. Orrrr should it be your whole hand is below the trigger but you can reach up with your trigger finger?

Probably doesn't matter but it's annoying me.

Have a look in the instruction bookley. They recommend it goes a little higher than you (or certain I) might expect.

But I'm going to take mine off, had enough of getting it caught when swining with a loose grip.

Look at the technical instuctions, last box.

i remove trigger and just use it as an upper rest at the top of the grip.

The plastic is rubbish and it'll break off anyway!
