    I have a bowmadness 34. I just got into tuning and have a couple questions. As there is only a single set of draw stops on this model how do i gauge if my timing is bang on? There are reference marks but ive always read those only get you in the ball park. Secondly, when i got it it was out of...
  2. Traditional Archery
    So I’ve been shooting well the past couple weeks, string was looking rough so I learned to make a flemish twist. After three I finally got one that I am happy with; consistent twists, nocks are fitting well, and BH is right on after the initial break in. Used Brownell XS2, old string was FF+...
  3. Bow Tuning
    So I have been tuning my Bowtech Revolt (30.5 DL, 70 lb DW). It was reasonably tuned, and had started focusing on my nock tuning. I had been able to nock tune bareshaft arrows at 20 yards for several weeks and had been shooting about 20 - 40 arrows nearly every day (note, I shot over 200 arrows...
  4. Bow Tuning
    Sportsmans Warehouse this spring had a bunch of Nockturnal Universal fit nocks at 30% off. I bought a bunch and have been using them on my current arrow build. Question do the "universal" fit nocks introduce any tuning issues (looser fit, affect nock tuning, etc)? Just wondered. Didn't know how...

    Somewhat of a N00b. First year DIY tuning my bow. Got all the stuff (press, board, etc) to do it. Had a rather tough journey tuning my own bow. Think I have it mostly tuned (but isn't tuning a bow a constant?). Right now I am still shooting my arrows bareshaft (@20 yards) to: 1. Make my form...

    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...
  7. Bow Tuning
    First let me thank any and all of you who have provided insight and help in my journey. Now to my w00t w00t! Tiger Blood! Winner! This is my first year bow building and tuning. I bought a Bowtech Revolt as this years primary bow and have been working on it for several months now (yes my tuning...

    Hi there, I have an NTN with the PBTS yokes. I could not get the right tear out of it, so I swapped the shims on the top cam, but now the cable is rubbing on the top cam at full draw. Did I do something wrong (as in should I have changed the shims on both cams)? Or is there something I can do...
  9. Bow Tuning
    New to tuning. Mostly new to archery (3 years at it) - tuning has been a byatch (excuse my french). So many voodoo ways of doing things, so many opinions on how, and so much lingo. Tuning a Bowtech Revolt. 70#, 29.5 DL. Right now tuning with a Easton Axis 5mm 260 spine with a 100 gr Ethics...
  10. Bow Tuning
    Greetings, all. Haven't posted here in a long while. It's good to be back. I was recently certified as a Level 2 USA Archery instructor, and one of my current students is using a Samick Polaris. I was checking her setup and realized her center shot was set WAY past the string. Thing is, she's...

    Is it necessary to switch both top hats when tuning or can I just swap the top or bottom. Thanks!
  12. General Archery Discussion
    Hello, quick question. So I’ve been shooting archery for about four months now and have gotten really good in my opinion. But lately, my arrows have been slanted left when hitting my target, or going further left the further in distance I shoot. I figured it’s time to learn how to tune my bow...

    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...
  14. Bow Tuning
    Relatively new to bow smithing. Got a LC Press, Draw Board, scale, Vise last year been toying around with them, while learning the steps of tuning a bow. This weekend wanted to get next seasons bows in shape and ready (they are new bows so they need the whole enchilada of setup and tuning)...
  15. General Archery Discussion
    Hey All, Love my freak. But I'm finding I want the DL to be a tad bit short at 32" and a tad bit long at 32.5" (I've got crazy long arms, I know). I'm also interested in adding a few pounds to the max DW. I don't have a press, but I have two pro shops nearby. If I want to push the DL 1/4"...

    So I just put brand new Gas Ghost XV string and cable set on my Bowtech Realm. First time tuning a bow from scratch on my own. Shop checked the install and everything is right and within spec. So I plan to start with paper tuning and then walk back tune it. So my center shot is all good and nock...
  18. General Archery Discussion
    Went and bought an PSE evo evl today, went to paper tune and got a constant nock right tear, which usually means to stiff of spine. We took the rest out of center shot and still tearing really bad, so were gunna have to shim or twist. Dealer thinks I should spine down but I disagree my set up is...
  19. General Archery Discussion
    It’s time to restring my bow. With that I have multiple questions. Question 1- what strings would you recommend for long life/durability that is gonna make my bow perform the best it can. Was thinking of either Bloodline VEC99 strings from Wicked Threads or Gas Ghost XV. Also have heard good...
  20. General Archery Discussion
    When paper tuning, what different distances do you all prefer to use? I bare shaft tuned at about 7 or so feet, and now that the arrows are fletched I need another yardage. Thanks
