Where is the berger hole located and what is its purpose in tuning a bow?
Thanks.

I believe it is the hole in the riser used for mounting your rest. The arrow should sit approximately in the middle of the berger hole when on the rest. I also think it is where you can measure from the center of it to your string to check your brace height.

It is the threaded hole in the riser that your rest attaches to.
It is called that because in the old days :rolleyes: the rod that screwed into the hole was called a bergerbutton.
You measure from the valley in the grip to the string for brace hieght.

Remember? The 18-year old Darton that I'm currently using still has one on it!!! :eek: (Right above my "flip" rest! :eek:

Fortunately, I pickup my brand new 2005 Parker Phoenix 34 on Monday. I'm quite certain that I'm in for quite a treat!
