Hey Guys, Just wanted to share with the martin family, a neat tool I made to help in tuning arrow, tuning bow, and checking dw, dl, cam lean at full draw. I call it the super shooter.:cool:

I made it about a year ago and it is a great tool and works out to 100yds plus.

It was nice to tune my arrows with no human error. I found 3 arrows out of 9 not grouping. with a couple of turns of the nocks, I had 9 arrows grouping in a 50 cent piece size.:D:D:D

r. I found 3 arrows out of 9 not grouping. with a couple of turns of the nocks, I had 9 arrows grouping in a 50 cent piece size.:D:D:D how did turning the nock make a difference. :confused:

Wow! that would be sweet for Broad head tuning. Bet you can do it in a quarter of the time. Thats it, Im making one...

I will send you the plans if you want them. Just pm me your email address. Also the nock turned 180 changes flight, and some times only 5 degrees moves it 1 inch. One more thing it only costs about $70.00 to build the machine and a little time.

It kind scares me to think about that. I shot Fobs and to remove the fob you have to take the knock off, or if you are shooting at target or animal , and get a past threw the fob and knock comes off. Which is the reason I started shooting fobs. They Saves a lot on fletchings. and you don't have a stack of shafts sitting in the corner waiting to be refletched.

This machine puts the same arrow in the same hole everytime. That takes away human error. And tells you where every arrow hits. I have pro vaporVmaxx and you would think the price you pay for them that they would hit all the same. With a few adjustments to the nocks, and usually it changes the arrows. Only occasionally do I have to fix the vanes.

Why does turning nocks influences the point of impact?

Pretty easy. Although the arrow manufacturers always say that their arrows are perfectly round and so on. This is not true. Making carbon arrows is not that easy and it is even harder to make round ones. The spine of an arrow can differ on each side with carbon arrows so if you turn the nock you can adjust the arrow stiffnes to be all the same on all arrows.

Be nice guys, we are not camera men just archer's. Heres a tutorial on the shooting machine.

That is great!!! With a yardstick attached it would make a great drawboard at the same time.
One question tho - When the bow is at full draw why is the release not inline with the arrow?

Damn, i must graduate a welding course if i want to finetune my bow ;) Excellent video, Hutch!

Spiker the head has 3 adjustments for different bow heights. But so far in its shooting ability it has no affect where the release head is. My son shot his bow out of it at 80 yards. Then he shot his bow at the same distance and no difference. They both shot the same.

It doesn't take much welding mostly spot welding and the only heavy welding is the post where the bow mounts. At 70lbs. LOL if you only spot welded that part.

Hey Hutch, that is very very impressive, a few hours of solid work gone into that no doubt.

Next project, a machine with the capabilities to tune the shooter!!!:D:D

But really Hutch, great work.

Hey gibson 787 It was really a quick project. My string jig took me longer it has motors, presser foot, etc etc. But the fun part of the super shooter is what can be done with it. As far as tuning the shooter no the machine will always beat me!

I was thinking that a turnbuckle right before your release, would be a great addition for fine tuning [ CAM TIMING] .That one to many clicks on that winch could be trouble.:eek: Turnbuckle you'd be able to move it very small increments. Just a thought. ;)

Hey FireHawk Owner, With the winch you can move it to the exact place you need it. Cam timing made easy. It really does cam timing, center shot, arrow leveling, draw weight, draw length etc etc etc. I am sure you guys have more things you can come up with.

I know some guys have made adjustments/changes/tweaks to your Super Shooter. It would be nice to see how others have tweaked your idea, do you have any pictures of the things people have changed and how your idea has evolved?

Yeah! I had to set up a system to be able to email the plans. So Brad converted all my plans to Pdf files. Then put the folder on the desk top. So when I got bombed with requests for the plans, I could do it quickly. I was busy for months. Then someone on AT brought the thread up again and it started it all over, just last week.

This guy had 1' copper given to him. So he built my super shooter out of it.

Sweet rig Hutch. I'd be damn scared of the copper the other guy used, unless it was a heavy walled tube. A little torque, and I'd think that copper might start bending.

The way the rail system is it shouldn't even flex. Mine is made of thin walled electrical pipe. And it only ways approx 30 to 40lbs. It is the best tool I have ever built.
