Tuning Problem or Not??

467 Views 11 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  medicFF
I am shooting a Hoyt Vtec (2005) @ 63 lbs., GT 5575 XT Hunter 27" with 2" blazers, 100 gr. field point, Draw length 27", Quick Tune 1000 rest.

I noticed while shooting staight on at the target, that from 20 yds. out to 40 yds. that the tail (nock end) of the arrow was leaning to the right in the target. It is barely noticable at 20 yds, but very pronounced at 40 yds.. The point of impact is slightly off, approximately 1 - 2" left when I shoot at 35 - 40 yds, but dead on out to about 25 yds.

What is up with that??:confused:

Nuts & Bolts

I will have to swing by the sporting goods store tomorrow to get some 125 gr. field points. Does this mean that the (6) 100 gr. Rocket hammerheads are no good or can upping the poundage to 65 lbs fix the issue?:confused:
Thanks everyone for the input

When I had the bow set up at the local pro shop, the bow technician had it shooting a perfect bullet hole on the paper. However, I never could get it to quite shoot the hole that he could. So, I guess it could be me torquing the grip. Could it be that I'm canting the bow to one side slightly?

I am going to try bumping the poundage up slightly as NUT/BOLTS suggested to give it a try.

Thanks for all of the advice.:wink:

Its a new compressed layer target. NUTS/BOLTS, I just bumped the poundage up to 66 lbs along with trying to really concentrate on my grip and it definately improved. It is not perfect yet, but it is better.:) Bumping up the poundage just 3 lbs created a noticable difference in the pull, which I will have to get used to.



Sent you a PM.
