  1. Mathews Archery Discussion
    So I bought a nice new VXR 31.5 when it launched and then suffered a shoulder injury. When I went to start shooting again I let some weight off of my limb bolts, then it started shooting with a slight nock left tear on paper. I took it to my pro shop and they told me that you absolutely CANNOT...

    Ok so I want to start by saying I’m not new to archery. I’ve tuned several bows. But this one has me scratching my head. My sons bow: Hoyt power max 40 lbs 25.5” draw Qad rest Arrows are XX75 2018 28” long 510 grs. I got everything set up and it’s shooting bullet holes through paper. Now we...

    So I don’t know why it’s took me this long to do this, but I’ll explain my set up. Bowtech reign 6 60lbs 27” draw. I’ve been shooting victory rip 400’s with a 125 exodus or stinger up front. I struggle to get it to tune. So today I bit the bullet and tried some of my Beman defender...
  4. Bear Archery Discussion
    My strings and cable have taken a beating on my 2021 Whitetail Legend. This is my first compound bow. Even so, the cable guide seemed like a weak link. I'll be changing the string, cable and guide tonight. I don't anticipate any issues, but always willing to listen to an experienced hand if...

    Hello, I am a new archer who has only been shooting a year. I am getting my bow tuned for the hunting season. My question is in regards to my arrow not lining up with the Berger hole. One of the common things I have heard in regards to setting your center shot is that the arrow should be 13/16...

    Hey guys, fairly new to bows and have been shooting for the last 6 months. Last night I attempted the paper tune test and it went miserably. My nock was tearing right big time, according to the charts I found online this means I should be moving my rest to the left. I followed the instructions...

    Anybody figure out the low tear issue's with the VXR's? In our group of bowhunters we have about 5 VXR's and mine can't seem to get rid of a low tear. I've shot the other bows, no issues with tears and other people have shot mine and can't get rid of low tear either. Tried messing with...

    Just wondering if anyone knows how many counter clockwise turns from peak weight can you turn the limb bolt to decrease the weight on a VXR 28? Thanks!

    I got tired of paying people to install strings,peeps,cables and any other things that requires a press. I bought a LCA press last week and was trying to find a chart that tells you when to add twist or take out twist. I remember a few years ago seeing a chart with pictures that explained...
  10. Obsession Bow Discussion
    I have to give another shoutout to https://www.archerytalk.com/vb/member.php?u=96164 Kevin @ PassThru Archery in Asheville, NC. He is completepassthru on here. I “met” him on here last year and sent him a different Obsession bow. When I got it back I was impressed with the way it shot so I...

    I've read in some posts a term "achieve a forgiving tune", which factors increase "forgiveness" and what factors "destroy forgiveness"?

    Hoping that asking here can spare me some time and effort in case anyone else has tried it. My Hoyt Prodigy RX is currently set up with the highest vertatune plate, A/C/Es and Shibuya rest. My question is, would switching to the medium or low vertatune plate have any noticeable effect? I've...

    I recently slapped on a CBE SL4 sight on my bow, began sighting my 20yard pin I adjusted the sight all the way to the extreme right. I am still shooting right! My QAD rest seems to be square and centered. I had the same issue with my previous Trophy Ridge sight so I am assuming it is not the...

I dialed everything in and had shot around 300 arrows prior to turkey...

    Hi there, Ive been reading the posts here for about 2 years, so I figured i would join, seems like the best place for tuning knowledge. I shot traditional longbows as a kid in the backyard growing up, a lot. In 2016 I bought a compound because there was a range near my house, the Redwood...
