  1. Switching Releases from Trigger to Hinge

    General Archery Discussion
    Just looking for some guidance on this topic - i just bought the Tru Ball HT 3 and I'm realizing that my anchor point from my trigger to hinge release is much different. Is it common to have to adjust your peep sight to compensate for this? I was hoping to use both for a while, but they don't...

    General Archery Discussion
    I have been shooting my whole life but have never done much of my own tuning, I just ordered new hunting arrows for this year and want to try and do some of this myself. I always have built my own arrows but that's where my knowledge on setting the bow and arrow combination up, goes out the...

    Hoyt Archery Discussion
    I have a 2018 Hoyt Pro Force and currently shooting the standard 85% letoff modules. I have heard of some people setting the string stops 1/2" shorter than the module setting to increase their holding weight. Anyone try this?
  4. Help with Left Nock Tear/Spine Issues Bowtech Prodigy

    General Archery Discussion
    Hello folks, This year I decided to get into bow tuning. For my first project, I decided to change the string and cables on my Prodigy. Since I have never done this before, I have taken my time and made sure to catalog everything I have done while tuning. The string and cables went on fine, with...

  6. Tips or advice on Cam Shims

    Elite Archery Discussion
    So I was tuning my bow the other week to shoot a newer arrow and ended up needing to swap a shim from one side of the cams to the other. This process proved difficult while the bow was pressed and the little washer shims dropping everywhere as you remove the cam. It made Matthew's top hat system...
  7. Hoyt Selena Question

    General Archery Discussion
    I shoot mainly Olympic style recurve and want to try out compound target this season. I'm buying a used LH Hoyt Selena from a fellow who does not know much about the bow he is selling. I've been scraping some infomation and have gathered that Hoyt had this bow released in 2006/2007. There is not...

    I have a Rampage XT with #3 Fuel Cam 1/2, C mods. That setup tunes great. I am putting on Fuel Cam 1/2 #1 cams with E mods. The mods are XR-1E. The string, buss, and control cables are all at factory spec lengths and are Winner's Choice. When I set up the bow, everything looks good. Cams are...

  11. Bare Shaft tuning suggests I should have a +11mm nocking point, Why?

    Bow Tuning
    Currently tuning my recurve bow, to get bare shafts to group vertically required me to raise the Knocking point to 11mm? Visually this looks ridiculous. Is this reasonable? If not what could be causing this? Ive included anything I could think of as relevant bellow Bow Origonal winact riser...
  12. Bareshaft Tuning Input

    F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    Hey all, I didn't want to thread-jack an ongoing tuning thread, so I started a new one. I have fletched shafts entering the bale fairly level. My bareshafts hit at the same vertical plane, but the nocks are all low. Eyeballing the angle difference, I'm guesstimating that the bareshafts are...
  13. Bare Shaft Tuning Distance

    Bow Tuning
    I have a question about bare shaft tuning. So far I have done: Bare shaft tune at 5, then 10, then 20 meters using the yoke. Shooting 3 fletched & 2 bare shaft arrows & getting good groups. The bare shafts have electrical tape wrapped around the same position as the fletching, so all arrows are...

    Martin Archery Discussion
    I only recently received a My 2018 Martin Axon 36. I am having a hard time finding information on timing and tuning. The manual does not show any timing marks or anything. The only information I got was to set everything to center and paper tune, and then advance the cable to 2-3 twists...

    PSE Archery Discussion
    I've tried pretty much everything by now and am looking for new ideas. Let me tell you, I've read everything that I could find, including the tmorelli's post here - believe me, I studied it up and down. The bow is set up to the extent of my knowledge of how everything should look like: - draw...

    Hi all, I have a Mathews Outback, I got new limbs, strings, and cables on it since last season. I am having trouble tuning. I had to put quite a lean into the cam to correct a nock left tear, but left-right I'm pretty straight now. However, I cannot tune out a slight nock high tear. I have tried...

  19. Am I not sighting right or is my bow out of tune??

    General Archery Discussion
    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...
  20. Tuning frequency (bareshaft/broadhead)

    General Archery Discussion
    Alright, so in April I bareshaft tuned my bow, was hitting within an inch at 20 yards everytime. Fixed blades were hitting perfect out to 70 yards until this weekend. Consistently getting 2-4" right at 70. There was an ever so slight left to right wind, about 3-5 mph and sometimes no wind and...
