    Here's the king of the hill from Cilsanws. Target #3. 38 yards, 48 degrees. Keep in mind both archers have 10 degree drop main stabs. Arrows are "true" incline.

    I bet many don't factor the cut on an uphill shot - probably seems counter intuitive. Gravity doesn't care uphill or down, same cut.

    If the tear is an inch or less, just go to group tuning. Don't chase bullet holes - in my experience once you group tune and go back to paper, you'll have a tear of some type. Yoke tuning will help...

    Ripping the Bow Apart

    Gellenthien does have visible rotation in his release but unless he's said he's using his hand to rotate the release, he could just as well be using back tension and simply has the release set cold. ...

    I'd double check your cable lengths. 23 lbs holding weight on a 56.5 draw weight is a 60% let off and little to no valley I'd bet. That could be a hand full to shoot unless you are used to it.

    Correct. When properly set the blade will flex out of the way of the vanes and not affect arrow flight.

    An alternative that helps set of a blade arrow rest is to take one arrow cut to about 10" in length (good use for fractured arrows) and no point. Lock your bow in a vice and nock this set up arrow. ...

    The most important aspect of making accurate sight tapes is getting good marks. Don't shoot a mark under 30 yards. The reason why is that a fast bow at under 30 yards can be up or down several...
