View Full Version : Curse you 50 pin!

I had recently moved my sight out farther from the riser. So I had to re-sight all my pins. I got to my 50 pin and just before the shot thought to myself ... I got a bad feeling about this. I should have just let down, because after that arrow left, I watched it sail right over the target off into the field. The field is better known as the "land of no return" ...

After that, got the 50 set but arrows were pulling right, vertical placement is good. Wondering if this would have anything to do with the arrow and not being able stay true for that distance. 40 is good without problems, just when I get beyond that it starts to get all funky. Would arrow spine have any effect on this?

Sighting plane has changed so it might be changing the way you see. Why did yo move the sight out from the bow?

In my experience I usually sight in @ the farthest distance. In my case I sight in @ 80yards. Then I sight in every pin back to 20yards. This takes out left to right traveling. It makes the arrow travel in a straight line @ a longer distance. Which causes shorter distances to be right on.

Are you fine tuning center shot through rest/pin adjustments at the distance while keeping things in line as you come to the shorter?

Usually I set left or right and height @ 80yards. For the most part I usually don't have to touch left or right adjustments just up or down. On the sighting on 70,60,50 and so on.

How do you know if you need a rest or sight adjustment when starting at distance? How do you get on target at that distance?

Well MLN, if I were just setting up a bow, I wouldn't sight in at that distance. As droppixel isn't setting up he already is hitting at that distance.
When setting up a bow I sight in 20yd pin. If I have a multi pin I adjust my pins equally apart. I than shoot every pin 20,30,40,50, 60 at the same bulls-eye at 20yards. That way each arrow is equally apart on my target. If they are more than 2" apart I tighten up the pins so the arrows are 2" apart or under when shooting. That way when I am shooting I won't loose an arrow. Once this is done I start at 60yds or what ever my greatest distance is. As far as left or right adjustment I adjust accordingly. Once say 60yds is sighted in I seldom have to change anything except up and down. Being doing this for awhile and it works very well. Troubled bows I usually can get them shooting within 30 to 40 minutes. Unless I use the super shooter. If I use the super shooter I use the same method. But I then have to re-adjust for the shooter usually left or right.

Okay, now that I have the rest of the story I understand. I took it at face value when you said you started at 80 and worked backwards. When does checking center shot come into play?
