    Didn't notice any mention of Trader Jan's down in the New Bedford/ Fall River area. Haven't been there myself but heard good things. As far as the top of the list not even owning a paper tuner I'd say that not true. Have shot thru paper there in the basement as they had a PVC frame set up for paper and you could get 10, 15 and 20 yard shots in the basement.

    If your talking about reedy's, they most certainly do have a paper tuner, however they have learned much like many others that paper tuning, isn't the end all of tuning your bow, if anything its just the begining. but they do have a paper tuning frame and all!

    Teepee archery by far the best around. I've been to 70% of these other places and just the service alone from tepee makes them #1 nevermind the clean, organized well stocked pro shop

    Anyone Know if arrow speed in Chicopee tunes bow. My hoyts way out of tune and r&r doesn't form what iv see touch tuning bows. They have you shoot at old cardboard boxes in the back of the shop. No draw board or paper tuner so im looking for a local shop to tune my bow.

    I'd give Ed at E&J archery in Westhampton a call. I know he does tuning even though he doesn't sell Hoyt. His number is 413-527-5252
