  1. Center Pull Risers .... Are they living up to the hype?

    General Archery Discussion
    For those that have lots of experience with BOTH standard and Center Pull risers, has the Center Pull risers lived up to the hype? I know there were some skeptics among the most respected bow gurus around, and some gave detailed explanations as to why they were not behind the idea of a true...

    Mathews Archery Discussion
    Got new strings cables on my halon 32. New hha virtus rest. Worked through fletching contact issues with the rest seemed to have fixed that.

  5. Arrows hit right

    Traditional Archery
    Would like some advice. I would really like to have my arrows hit the target exactly above or below where I'm placing the point of the arrow. But my arrows always hit to the right. It's not a weak spine issue; if anything, the arrows I'm using are too stiff. Bare shafts are grouping with the...
  6. Elite Synergy/QAD ultra rest

    General Archery Discussion
    I keep reading that your arrow on the elite synergy should run through your berger hole. My arrow is closer to the top of the hole almost completely above it. From what I can tell it looks like if I lower my rest too much more it will hit the shelf. Does anyone have this set-up or any advice...
  7. Dynamic Spine Calculator - center cut / strike plate question

    Traditional Archery
    I've been playing around a lot with Stu Miller's Dynamic Spine Calculator (Rev 12-25-10 v2) to see how well matched my bow and arrow setup is. I've noticed that the strike plate thickness (I'm using Samick Sage) has a significant impact on the dynamic spine value requirement of the bow. I'm...

    Finger Shooting
    Hello all, I’ve been a compound finger shooter for nearly 25 years now and I have recently purchased two new bows to replace my old ones. A Martin Scepter V to replace a Cougar 2000 for the hunting bow. And a Mathews (gasp!:mg:) Apex 8 to replace the Martin Scepter II, for 3-D and target...
  9. SOS! Ready to throw in the towel!

    Bowtech Archery Discussion
    OK-First off, I have a habit of making posts entirely too long winded, so I am going to start with short and sweet and answer questions as they arise about my situation. I have a Bowtech Assassin I bought two years ago. I purchased it from a local "pro-shop" who supposedly paper tuned it for...
  10. Barebow aiming and centershot

    F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    How do you aim your barebow, stringwalking or gap, doesn't matter, if you line your centershot dead center or really close to center? Don't you align your bow and your string with your eye and that would block the sight of your arrow point?

  12. Experience center shot

    Bowtech Archery Discussion
    Hey guys what did you set your experience center shot at prior to yoke tuning? I have mine at 7/8 but that looks a little far out. Is anyone tuning any closer like 13/16 or something else?
  13. Centershot, parallax, and basic alignment tips?

    F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    I've known my centershot is off, but since I usually shoot at 18m in my backyard, I never bothered to adjust it. Tonight at a club shoot, we were moving our distances around: as close as two yards, and as far as 28 (we shoot inside a gym, and I'm the lone olympic style shooter; everyone else...
  14. Z7 & Whisker Biscuit Centershot

    General Archery Discussion
    I have read that a drop-away rest has tuned well for some at around 11/16" and a "containment style" rest has tuned well for some at about 13/16" on the Z7. I have a whisker biscuit on mine and am looking for a starting point from someone else who has tuned this bow with a whisker biscuit...
  15. centershot, how far out is too far out

    General Archery Discussion
    Hey guys, I just got my new alphamax 32 and ripcord rest set up and paper To get bullet holes at six feet, I had to move the center of the rest a full inch from the riser. It looks a little too far out to me, is this normal? If it's not, what is the fix? I had been getting a consistant right...
