My dealer is 40 miles from my home. I went to a new, local, archery shop and asked if they could check the setting of my Trophy Taker rest. When I asked if they did paper tuning, they stated they only use a Mother Board. What is a Mother Board and does it work as well/better/worse?

I know this doesn't answer your question at all, but I have absolutely NO idea what they are talking about?? I always feel like I keep up with the world of bows and accessories pretty closely, and I have never heard that term used in tuning a bow. Sorry??

This IS a valid tuning method. Used predominately in the western states (Wyoming, Montana, Texas). I have always papertuned but must admit I am dying to try motherboard tuning. Maybe on my next bow. Anyway the method is actually misnamed the name has been shortened for PC reasons. It was originally referred to as Mother-in-law board tuning. Take your mother in law and strap here to a 5' X 5' sheet of plywood. Place a large sheet of paper behind her. I recommend using heavy ratchet straps as she will undoubtedly squirm around at least for the first couple of seconds. Make sure you have perfect form. to assure this repeat the following..."So I am not good enough for your little girl....ohmmmm.....you never liked me anyway....ohmmm. Evaluate the paper tears after a complete pass through and adjust your rest position and arrow spine from there. Sorry guys I couldn't resist. Okay, not sorry. Motherboard tuning? Never heard of it.

You sure it wasn't a drawing board? Some people time their dual cam bows with a device that holds the riser while a winch pulls the bow back to full draw and holds it there. I can see how this could be used to "time" a dropaway, although it wouldn't tell them anything about centershot.

Yeah I have been to that shop. The owners mother works for him part time tuning bows. But she only tunes them when she is bored :D This is called
"mother bored tuning" ;)

I prefer glass tuning myself, but being a computer geek, I shall try this "motherboard tuning" on an old dell a little later this evening and post pictures as to how well it works :D For now, here's a really nice hole I did awhile back while trying out my glass tuning method. :)

Hell man an 80 pounder shooting drinking straws tipped with lazers wouldn't pass through my mother in law :mad:

X-ring,

Try Grizzly Stik Safari's tipped with a 250 grain Zwickey. If Dr. Ashbey can put one through an asian water buffalo, it may stand a chance against your mother in log.

Yes, it is a very common tuning method, down here in Texas. I started using bungee straps and did determine Rogbo was correct in using ratchet straps is the correct method. Also duct taping the mouth helps the audio portion of the test. :D

They are probably talking about using a tuning board. I used to call mine the "Ouija Board". You can check cam timing and nock travel with a "board".

Paper tuning is not that accurate. It is good for only one space and distance from target. Better to do group tuning and sight in at 25-30 yards on a target with tape running vetically and horizontally intersecting in the middle....sight in for vertical then horizontal,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,get the arrows to fly and the hit the place where the tape meets on the horizontal and vertical plane.........that maybe what they br talking about!!!!!

Paper tuning is not that accurate.

I doubt mother board tuning is that great either. :D At least it doesn't sound like something I want to depend on.

Reasons NOT to do this:
1.Friggin arrows are HARD to pull out
2.If you hit the heatsink on the northbridge - it wrecks your arrow.
3.If you hit the heatsink on the northbridge - the broken arrow comes BACK at you at high speed. (safety concern)
4.If you hit any other components on the motherboard the hole tears are askew and useless to gage arrow flight from. (maybe shoot from backside :D )
5.Your computer will NOT work after you do this.
6.Arrows do NOT pass completely through.

Reason TO do this:
1.Stress relief
2.Make a bunch of people I don't know on an internet forum laugh.
3.Inform others of complications doing this procedure.

HAHAHA - I always did hate this stupid motherboard anyway :D

Jim and Jave are correct. I have heard it called a "tiller board". and I use it for determining draw length, timing and tiller at full draw.

I made mine using a 4X4 with a 1 1/4" wood dowel with a piece of pipe insulation for padding at one end (I place the bow handle there) and a boat crank at the other end. A piece of plywood in between helps to take measurements. The only cost was the boat crank ($19.95 through Harbor Freight as I recall).
