    Swapping or changing shims on the lower cam is the only way to correct lean issues when you don't have a yoke. Basically you move the cam towards the limb you want to give more pressure on the axle...

    I could shoot an arrow cut 3.5" shorter than my draw length. I won't though. I at least make sure my arrow's insert end doesn't draw beyond the back of my bow's shelf. That way I know I can't...

    I would use the 340 spine in your case. The biggest reasons are that your bow is rated over 315 ibo, and you can increase tip weight with the heavier spine or go up a bit in draw weight. Your looking...

    I find its easier to design and build an arrow for the prey your after. No reason to have an arrow that'll put down a cape buffalo if the largest animal you'll be after is white tail deer. With that...

    Looking at the Gold Tip chart directly, and starting with a 32" 400 spine arrow and cutting it down to 28", your looking at gaining between 10 to 15 lbs of draw force. For an average it's looking...

    It's better to err on the stiffer side of spine. I always go up to the next full inch of arrow length when checking a chart. But, that's just a start. I also make sure my bow and arrow setup is...

    My Spyder 34 LD tuned best the same; top stop hitting around a credit card thickness before the bottom. That's with a level arrow, not perpendicular off the string.

    What bow? If it's the Hoyt listed in your profile, set your centershot and yoke tune through paper. Then bareshaft tune at 10 then 20 yds. Bareshafting will get you way closer than paper will.

    For the most part Dale is correct. But, Stash is correct also. I've experienced a bow with a shifting limb in its pocket. Impossible to tune. Very inconsistent. I know at least one bow company is...

    I guess it boils down to how much length you can take off an arrow to clean up the variance. I shoot 29.5" carbon to carbon arrows so I do go with .001 straightness. I can tell the difference in .001...

    Bareshafting is all about angles. Compare your bareshafts to your fletched. I see your bareshaft nocks to the right and a little low. That would give you a low right tear through paper. Adjust the...
