    Bow Tuning
    Hey guys, I am trying to fix a broadhead issue that I have noticed recently. My rest is the microadjustable whisper biscuit. I got so frustrated I ordered a limb driver but in the meantime I am hoping to rule out other issues. No matter the left/right position of the whisper biscuit, from...

    General Archery Discussion
    Hey Guys, I'm new to tuning my own bow and have been trying to wrap my mind around how to paper tune a bow correctly.

  9. Obsession Final Cut Tuning Problem

    General Archery Discussion
    So I picked up a #60/27.5 Final Cut. I could not get it to ATA spec with the stock string set. I even put zero twist in the strings and cables so they are at their longest length and I still couldnt get to the spec ATA. So I ordered a set of Vaportrails and it helped a little bit but I still...

    General Archery Discussion
    Hi All, I'd love some advice here, as I'm going a bit crazy. Lately when I shoot, I get a painful slap on the base of my hand, where my thumb meets my wrist and/or on my wrist itself. Generally, I think most problems are problems with form not with the bow, but I have really played around...

  20. Adjusting arrows for longer distances

    F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    Hello fine archerytalk compadres! I'm getting heavier limbs (yes, it's time). My arrows are currently a little bit stiff, so that's convenient as I move up. They are also slightly long for me; too long to use a riser-mounted clicker so I'm using the extended clicker instead. I'd love to get to...
