What kind of accuracy can one expect from a short (32" or less) light weight bow? Is three to four inches at 25 yards acceptable? Is there anything besides arrow tuning that one could do to make them more stable? Thanks, H.H.
I shot a bowtech tomkat for a long tme. My groups did not spreat out to 3-4" until I was out to 50-60 yards. The thing that really effected my groups was draw weight. The lower my draw weight, the larger my groups got. find a heavier back weighted stabillizer, and up your draw weight a couple pounds ,and your groups should get tighter.
3"-4" groups at even thirty yards should provide a good clean kill if that is you can control that good ole buck fever.
the one thing i try and do with a factory lightweight bow is add some weight to lower portion of the riser somehow with doinker weights or a small v-bar set. I also set my dl 1/2" short to clear excessive clothing.
i shot an SQ2 for 4 years. the best group i can remember was 5 arrows touching, in the X ring, at 40 meters. i robinhooded an arrow at 50 meters. and i shot 1170 the first time i shot a FITA event, the first day i shot 70 and 90 meters actually.
i had the bow setup with V bars, and a 30" stabilizer. but even with a pin sight and a short 12" stab, i could get 2-2.5" groups at 40 meters on my good days.
so, short bows are very accurate. i think any short bow is more accurate than his owner. of course a longer bow will be more forgiving, but if you do your part, the bow will do its part also.

No problems with the accuracy, have made lots of robinhods and peeling of vanes at distances from 0 to 50 yds.
So now i never shoots two arrows at the same spot :teeth:
If you are a good shot at 25 yards and you are still getting 3-4 inches between arrows. I would guess your cables are streching... you can check right above the bottom cam... if the serving is seperated more then a half inch, replace cable... that's the problem with micro bows....
