So I have a Alien Z RH 60 lber. I have been struggling to get it paper tuned and to get it broadheaded tuned for hunting season. I was using 350 trophy ridge crushes arrows cut a 29 in. They were tearing tail left everytime and could only get a slight tear the other way if I adjusted the rest all the way towards the riser. to looking down from the top of the bow the arrow is going towards the riser. so I adjusted the wt down to 50 lbs and got great flight not perfect but great. wanted to get it closer to 60 lbs so I bought some 300 spine arrows. now it shoots broadheads good at 60 lbs but the arrow is still going towards the riser. Some on here have said the center shot needs to be 15/16 but mine is more like 7/8 or just under it. Anythoughts on why?? I have 8 days until elk season so will be looking for ideas after sept?? Maybe swap limbs??

I hate to say it but all three of my Ryteras tune with the rest slightly inside center. You do realize, I hope, that the difference between 15/16" and 7/8" is only 1/16", right? I haven't quite figured it out myself, but I have an inkling that the Hybrix cams are not as aggressive as we are led to believe so maybe a softer spine would work better. Don't be afraid to try a 400 spine.

well I re measured the center shot its a smidge under 15/16.. I did try a 400 spine (55/75) and it was ugly...Bought 6 goldtip Kinetic 300 and the broadheads are flying nice and str8. No more wag to them....I feel really good about it as well... I was very stressed over it as well. deer season starting the 1st and elk the 4th... no time for this b.s :)

I am using 400's on my Nemesis. I added a little length to 29 inches measuring from carbon to inside of nock. 60 pound DW exactly with 100 grain Broadheads. It's shooting good.

I don't think that a Deer or an Elk will really care which side of the entrance hole the tail end of the shaft was on, Josh. :)

That's a great buck!. We have nothing like that where I'm at. As soon as a buck gets that third antler slightly over an inch, someone kills it. I was out today on a hillside and saw only two bucks with 4 points on each side, but barely over an inch and way to narrow for me. I try my best to get a 4x4 minimum as a personal goal but it's not lloking too promising so far. There's a 3x3 that is much larger, meat wise and if he ended up in front of me, I would take him in a heart beat. I wish they would let us take a doe in archery in my GMU. it's 3 point muley only.

I've had elk walk out in front of me, but none in season. That's a good looking Bull. Elk is my favorite. I have friends down in Selah that come up and give me elk meat most years. They have a second home where I live. I love to slow cook it in a croc pot.
