I just started offering a service to help the DIY Tuners. Yes, it is done solely by text and text pics since that would be the most efficient way to go about this service. All I would need is the bow make/model, bow specs, arrow specs, centershot measurement, nock height measurement, measured pre lean if aplicable, side view of yourself at full draw, current cam synch if possible and that would be enough to get started. I would evaluate your specs, have you make initial adjustments if need be and start the tuning process. Once we are in the general area for a good starting base I would then require bareshaft and fletched pics at 10 yards. After that we will progress to 20 yards until that is perfected. You will need to have access to a press, bow vise or an accurate way you could measure nock height. A drawboard is recommended but not the end of the world and we can usually work around it. This gives you an idea of what things I might need up front to get this ball rolling if you might be interested. Please go to my website http://www.ontarget7.com/ and click on the DIY Tuning link, then send me a message if you might be interested in this service. The price is also listed under that link as well.

Thought it would be a great idea to start a thread for the DIY tuning customers of mine. Somewhere they could post their results of before, after and overall experience.
I have had quite the response the first day, so we will see how this turns out and hopefully it will help many of the DIY guys and gals have a better understanding of the tuning process.


Thanks
Shane

Ill jump in with before and after pics. Lucky for me i was able to begin the learning process about a year and half ago. I was struggling with my cs30 and getting the tune i was after. Thought i needed tremendous cam lean to achieve results and was NOT halpy. Contacted shane and we began to pick everything apart. The first pic is where i started 10 yards bareshaft and fletched. We made dl adjustments timing adjustments cam lean adjustments and most importantly GRIP adjustments. Below is the cam lean i began with. Pic hard to see but tons of lean.

Within a 2 days results were much better but not where we wanted them. Within one week i was stacking bareshafts and fletched together at 20 yards 3 out of 5 times. Im now able to shoot bareshaft and fletched arrows together at 40 yards on a day to day basis. Pics below are current cam lean and current results from 30 to 40 yards. Shane has been awsome to work with and has tons of knowledge in this are. If your considering learning how to DIY this is the guy to be in contact with.

Man, I forgot about those pics bro !
You are doing great and actually picked it up very fast, like a sponge absorbing water.

Those groups will give me a run for my money, that's what I like to see.

Last year when tuning my Faktor 30 I was having major problems with bareshaft flight. Shane helped me for FREE and I was able to get my bow shooting great. Shane, I think what you are doing is awesome and would gladly pay for your services in the future!
