paper tuning

  1. General Archery Discussion
    Want to thank all of you have provided guidance and knowledge. This is my first "self" bow setup and tune. Before this I prayed and fasted for 2 weeks, walked on gravel barefoot 10 miles to my local shaman (bow guy) who then I would lay gifts at their feet and continue praying and fasting as...

    Paper tuned with bare shaft and fletching at 7'. Now I'm trying to group tune at 20 yds. I'm getting some inconsistent impact points with bare shafts. None are totally out of whack but some days I'm getting slight right impact, others slight left and one day slight high. Stuff like this...

    Just put on some new stings and getting everything dialed back in and I have a red pill blue pill problem. My bare shaft is a bullet hole through paper and my fleched arrow is a right tear. Thought I would seek some insight before I start down the rabbit hole. Also what paper does everyone use...

    I recently found a nice old Darton recurve bow at a rummage sale and have been getting myself set up to start practicing. I've read/watched a lot of material so far on technology and technique but like I said.. I'm new at this. The problem I'm trying to correct is this: I can shoot an old...
  6. WELCOME! New User Forum
    I've been wanting to get into archery for a while and got my chance this summer with a good rummage sale find: a 44# Darton recurve in great condition. I've watched and read quite a bit at this point and I'm pretty sure I'm set up and doing things right, except for one big problem.. I'm...

    I just picked up a 15' Prodigy (looks brand new). I have owned a few ODBinaries, and have never had any issues with initial setup, paper tuning, or bareshaft & broadhead tuning. This Prodigy is driving me nuts. I initially set my nock point and rest (QAD HDX) perpendicular / level through the...

    So I have something strange going on when trying to paper tune my 2017 Hoyt Carbon Defiant 34. Let me just start off by saying that the bow is shooting awesome and I’m shooting higher scores than ever before. (consistently over even each weekend) However, I recently decided that I was going to...

    Just for conversation, I thought I would throw this out there...(not bashing or endorsing anything). I have owned quite a few Elite's over the last 4yrs (Answer,Hunter, 07' Impulse, GT500, 15' Synergy, E35....), and upon receiving each bow, I normally check specs and timing and then throw on a...

    I set my bow up recently and the way it paper tuned my arrow is above 90 degrees and I'm not a huge fan so looking for some help. The initial setup was arrow at 90 degrees, bottom of the arrow touching bottom of the burger button hole, cams stopping at the same time, zero cam lean and specs...

    Hello Everyone, I have a question about paper tuning. I shoot a 2007 Bear Element (solo cam) and am wondering if there is any variation to paper tuning a single cam bow. I've heard (from a friend) that you want a high tear when shooting solo cam and I just wanted to see what the experts think...

    I have been reading a bunch of articles and posts on paper tuning and am trying to get my bow dialed in better. I know for certain tears there are a few adjustments that can be made. I'm wondering if there is a consensus on what adjustment should be made first. In other words if I have a...

    Hello Everyone! At what distance to you paper tune you bow? When I search the internet I get all kinds of answers, Some say 5-6 feet, some 10-15 feet and, some say 10 yards. Does it matter? Also do you bare shaft tune as well or what do you recommend? I shoot a 35# Samick Sage with Journey...
  15. General Archery Discussion
    Archers, I set my center shot up with an Easy Eye Eze-Center Laser, then went directly to paper tuning the bow. From everything I have read, if I have a right tear (I have a right tear) I need to adjust my rest to the left to correct for it. I was able to eliminate the right tear and shoot...

    I was trying to avoid opening another paper tuning thread but I've been looking and looking so many unanswered questions still. I'm just trying to figure out the tuning process because I've read people paper tune to start then do french tuning. Doesn't that defeat the whole purpose of paper...

    I decided to upgrade my bow this winter to a Hoyt Spyder Turbo ZT. I am still waiting for the bow to come in, but I am wondering about paper tuning and arrows. The local bow show where I go pretty good, the guy is knowledgeable, but I have some concerns about follow-up after the purchase...

    I just picked up a Fred Bear Empire, which is a worlds of difference from my '06 Bear Instinct, but I am having trouble paper tuning. I actually had to return my Anarchy HC because i consistently got a downward rigth paper tear, and could not get decent arrow flight. I went with the single cam...
