    One way to check fishtailing would be to shoot through several sheets of paper spaced a couple feet apart. 6-8-10-12 feet or so. Then look at the tears. That would give a definite sign of anything strange going on during arrow flight. Or space them out further if you have the chance, 5-10-15 yards......Tears might not be as predominant as it looks without the paper, but it should show any fishtail. Guessing the paper might straighten the arrow out some as it flies through....

    I posted 2 threads one on draw length, and this one one arrows fishtailing. Well they were the same problem. Seems that the draw length was not set right. And I did not know that it could be pulled beyond the flat spot in the module. Kind of an overdraw. That caused the string to ride over the end of the module and then when the string was released it would let the arrow fly erratic. Now with the right module in it and the draw stop set properly. I have no more issues with the arrows.
