At 3 feet I’m getting bullet holes with bare shaft, but the further away I go, the harder it tears. This is my first time paper tuning bare so any help is appreciated.
Nailed itIf the tear is the same everytime and consistent then adjust the bow. What you are seeing is an un tune set up. As long as you are consistent .
Bare shaft through paper can be hard for some. If the bare shaft has say a slight right tear at 3 ft. And I mean it can be so small you think it’s a bullet hole as you back up the right tear will get bigger. And as you back up it will get even bigger. This is because the bow is not tuned.
Lots of people bare shaft through paper at 10 yards. Personally you need to go to 20 yards. Anything less is a waste of time. But there are variables. You need to make sure bow is set correctly before bare shaft tuning. Or damn close. You need to nock tune all shafts first.
Lots to bare shaft tuning. But what you are seeing is what you should be seeing in bare shaft tuning when you first start.
