Thread: Bow tuning/set-up resource.

  1. #1

    Bow tuning/set-up resource.

    Hey Guys.

    The only "pro shop" for miles has closed and the local "big box" type store is inconsistent at best with their back up so wanting to learn more about working with compound bows for us and our club mates.

    Normally I'm strictly traditional but an ex-wheelie bow shooter and my wife is getting into it now too so it would be nice to be self-sufficient so-to-speak.

    Are there any Books/DVD's/ youtube channels that the wise would recommend?

    Any other up-to-date resource would be helpful.

    from set-up, maintenance, tuning……even cable making (not sure my flemish twists are the way to go with this!!)

    Thanks muchly in advance

    And the price is right

    The advantage to AT tuning, is the resource is dynamic, and responds to design and equipment changes.

    To make the best use of it, a decent press is critical, along with a way to keep notes on your changes. I have a copy of the guide on my shop bench, along with a couple other legacy tuning greats in the sticky section, but they are even more useful if you track the output for your own bow(s). There are some changes that need to be reversed, and remembering what you did to the bus, control, string, etc. (at least with my aging cells) is usually not much help. May sound anal, but from the day I bring a bow home, or install new rigging, I have any tuning adjustment logged and dated, along with chronograph data.

    But the N&B guide is a method, with a structure. There are other ways to accomplish some tasks, and you don't have to start at the beginning every time, (with some practice and experience). But random adjustments, no structure, usually equals no results, or equipment wrapped around a tree.
