    Question Sight Tapes.. Who can make them??

    I have the New Hogg Father ordered and im going to need some sight tapes for it.. I have considered buying Archers Advantage but have no way of really making quality tapes like a lable marchine would make.. Could anyone help me out if I get my first and last pin Sighted in? Thanks for any and all help guys....

    Go-ahead an buy it, tape it on with some clear tape on the ends then run a strip over the whole thing to WP it. I would make a card also that tells you the numbers to use on your new sight. I use the numbers on the chart then look at the tape as a ref just to make sure I didn't fat finger a number. To me the numbers are more accurate.

    HHA makes sight tapes and stores like Cabela's sells them too. I don't see why they would not work once you chronograph your arrow. SRM

    I don't crono mine.

    I shoot and get numbers off my sight for 20, 40, 60 and maybe 80. Plug those numbers in and it calculates the "actual" speed. You would be suprised the difference.

    The pre-printed tape with chrono method will probably not work. The dial to head movement ratio space the marks farther apart than the normal fps readings would indicate.

    Example: chrono velocity of 300fps might need a tape with mark spacings closer to what 270fps would generate.

    OT2 has been updated to support the Hogger Dial sights. So you could enter the chrono velocity and the marks will be generated with the correct spacing to reflect actual velocity.

    Good deal I hear on target 2 is an excellent tool as well. Wondering can you download it as well if you purchase it? and how do i Save it from computer crashes. I had heard on bowcast that you can enter the distance from the first pin to the last and it would produce a sight tape for you.. is this correct? thanks for the information guys.. Also when you say it has the info for the spot hogg sights is their a tab you click or something that shows the different type of sights.. ?

    It means the following:
    Give TAP One speed, Perfect TAPE
    Give TAP Two speeds (one at the bow, one down range), Perfect TAPE
    Give TAP Two Sight Marks (first mark 20,30 or 40 yards second mark farther than the first), Perfect TAPE
    Select your Bow, measure carefully, Perfect TAPE

    All modes of operation work flawlessly with the new Spot-Hoggs as well as ANY other sight I am aware of on the market today.

    I use an older version of TAP at the shop to print out sight tapes and most times I don't have alot of time so I just use the single velocity mode and those that I have made a tape for are shooting spot on out to 50+ yards and are very happy with what I give them (thanks Tony), now I have to shoot against them which is always fun.

    >>Wondering can you download it as well if you purchase it?

    When you download the trial version, the install program that you download is the "full version" with some features disabled. You could save the install to a hard copy media, if you want.


    >>and how do i Save it from computer crashes.

    The latest version is always posted on the Pinwheel website.


    >>I had heard on bowcast that you can enter the distance from the first pin to the last and it would produce a sight tape for you.. is this correct?

    Yes. You can have OT2 calculate your velocity from marks, pin gaps, or arrow drop. A chronograph will work, but they can be "off" relative to the program velocity. If your chrony isn't calibrated and it's off by 3% that's a difference of 8.4fps at 280.


    >>Also when you say it has the info for the spot hogg sights is their a tab you click or something that shows the different type of sights.. ?

    Yes. Database Selection subtab. Has the bow, sight, shaft, vane, and fletch databases. The Spot Hogg dial type sights also have a quick selection radio button on the Equipment tab.

    Yes...waiting for it to arrive in the mail. TAP will already handle that sight with 100% accuracy, I might add the whole series as selections in the next rev.

    Right now TAP all versions will handle this with no problems, all modes of operation.

    Don't want to sound redundant, but I've always said TAP is the easiest to use and has the best customer service by far. I think this thread proves it.
    If you're on the edge about selecting a software program, I recommend TAP. If a redneckharleyridin bowhunter and an elf can use it, it HAS to be the best!

    I just looked at purchasing TAP and have a question.

    What is the differance between the Desktop CD ($60) and the Download ($35) versions?

    I would assume that if you bought the download version that you could save it to a CD for a back-up in the event of a computer crash?

    Thanks

    The Download is always the most up to date. I am going to be discontinuing CD's this month.

    When you buy TAP and download it, you can do whatever you need to for safe keeping.
