I see Lancaster is selling a $79 video of Jesse Broadwater setting up and tuning his bow, together with what seem to be lo it’s of other “pro” tips. I regard Lancaster and Jesse B highly. Wondering if anyone else has purchased this and, if so, what kind of reviews you give it. Most importantly, is it worth the 79 bucks?

(BTW, there is a corresponding recurve video featuring another pro)

Shouldn't be nothing but exceptional to worth that money taking in consideration the amount of good content currently available for free on Youtube. Gellenthien has has a 10 min one about how to tune a TRX38 and I've seen 10 min tutorials just about how to select, adjust and tie a peep. This kind of content was very convenient in pre-Internet era, but harder to justify now due the amount of people glad to share they knownledge in all kind of media platforms, just because they enjoy helping.

Thats a great question... thank you. I had asked a couple of club mates the exact same question re its worth. Its alot of money if its just re hash of already available and commonly known content. Not critersising anyone here so please dont climb into me for asking.. Id be interested to hear from others who have paid whether their money was well spent or not.

And the "other pro" is raaaaather good at re curve too...lol!!!
Thanks.

You can watch John Dudley tune bows for free on Nock on videos on Youtube. There are a couple over an hour each. I don't think with what is free from some very knowledgeable people that i would pay 79 dollars for a video.

If you have to ask then it's definitely worth it for you.

You should buy it, write a review. Let us know what knowledge you gained...a before and after comparison.

IMO that's a pretty ****ty way to treat customers by charging for that. Teach people how to setup and tune their bows for free and they will buy from you when they need something. Good faith and all that.

My understanding is USA Archery put both videos together not Lancaster.

Lancaster are selling them through through their website. I guess its pretty "****ty" a national organisation is trying rip people off by charging for this. I don't know what planet you keyboard warriors are on sometimes. Give me strength guys, a lot of things that are free on Youtube are not even worth that.

It is USAA that put this out not Lancaster and everything USAA sells is high priced. I think they use some of the money to support their programs/tournaments etc across the US or so I hope. Not sure how much of the cost goes to Brady or Jesse but probably a good chunk of it. I guess if you are a "fan" of either and want to have this fine but as many others have said the information is out there.......

What nonsense. USAA must not realize there's such a thing as the internet and YouTube. Or they're banking on the naive being overcome by the famous names and unquestioningly handing over their money.

I posted the link for these videos in the "Super Tuners" thread, but there is so much c**k measuring going on there it got lost in the wind.
My humble opinion is, I would gladly pay $40 an hour to have one of those guys walk me thru their process. ($40/video, $80 for both). We all know it takes more than an hour to setup and tune a bow from start to finish, so these videos seem like a bargain to me. Considering they're giving you world class knowledge, that didn't exactly take a Tuesday afternoon to film and put on tape. These guys don't get a salary, they're paid based on results. The knowledge and skill they obtain is priceless.
So if you want to enroll in the "school of nock" tour again and get the basics then by all means, save your money. And this is coming from a Nock On fan boy, I own 2 of his releases. But Dudley wasn't the best for a reason, skill and knowledge made these guys world champions, not just practice.

there is a young guy (13) at my 3D club, that always shoots 300+ scores. same stake as the
rest of us. is he this great tuner? not even close ! is he a shooter? you bet !

him, an his dad are friends with a local pro shop owner that takes care of there tuning.
great shooter, great tuner, don't always go together. as this young guy moves along he will
most likely pick some things up. will he be a great tuner? time will tell. have seen a lot of good
shooters, most couldn't tune there way out of a bad draw length !
FYI- not all great shooters, ->>>>---------------------> are super tuners .

If you truly think that Jesse is tuning extra points out of his bows that nobody else can do, then $80 is dirt cheap.
