Now, I'm not a huge advocate on paper tuning, although I do believe that it is just an early/single process in the 'total tuning' job of your bow. But, if you're done setting up a bow, pull it out of the press, take your first shot through paper at 9 yards and it looks a little something like this, you're doin' good......... :eek:) Oh yeah, and that's with a QAD Ultra HD/LD using the standard launcher, out of a 60# Maxxis 35, 28" DL, shooting 2" Blazers on a 27" a/c/c 3-49...........

Try that same shaft with no fletchings at 4-5 ft, not yards and see what you get, at 9 yds that arrow with fletchings probly has enough time to stabilize, I do not do paper tuning but to each his own

AGREED! But If that was my first shot though paper I would be very happy!
It's a great place to start:teeth:

Don't need to. Bare shafts hits at 20 yards same as the fletched shafts and fly like darts with field tips. Like I said, I'm not a big proponent on paper tuning, but for the guys who are, I just thought I'd give them an example on what it should look like. And yeah, that was straight out of the press and first shot through paper. Done. :darkbeer:

It shot a perfect hole through paper and it bare shafted at 20 yards. Enough said, the results speak for themselves.
