    One of the biggest issues with a solid back wall is your draw length setting, when you have a nice long valley your draw length isn't a big deal because you come to anchor and are functioning on...

    Why is it a big deal?

    1. Your front arm has to do way more work when your rear arm is really not helping, When your rear arm is applying preload to the wall it helps stabilize the aiming of the...

    If you are a shooter that likes to come to anchor and just sit in the valley and then once the pin is perfect you just dump the trigger then the wall really isn't something important to you. If you...

    If you are a low level tuner and you lucked out and got the bow to tune and have no idea how you got to that point then I would leave it right there. If you know how to control the arrow flight with...

    Right now I don't think I am brand loyal when it comes to bows, I would shoot any bow from pse or hoyt or bowtech that had yokes. I will not voluntarily own a bow without yokes because of tuning...

    In all reality this could be the best tuning method ever once someone actually puts it in writing. In my opinion I would do my setup exactly the same with cam sync and perfect draw length and then I...

    The biggest revolution that is going to continue to grow is the fact that we now understand that moving the powerstroke of the bow is the way to go instead of moving the arrow rest. I just don't...

    I have thought about actually spending the time to do it but my problem is that I just don't see the need, I feel like I got lucky and became a paper tuner back before I was here on archery talk and...

    The only people that I hear that try and incorporate yoke tuning into their walk back tuning are the guys who do a little preliminary paper tuning or something where they can yoke tune a little to...

    Bernies book is a good one but it doesn't offer any setup routine to your hinge and it is pretty much a back tension only method for firing the hinge. He has some really good reading and if you are...
