    Default different bow's with different shots

    i was not sure ware to post this so im posting here.so i have shot a few bow's but not many.most have been martin and one or two different brands.what im getting at is i shot my buddy's 90's bengal and 2009 bengal sighted in for him and i shot like it was sighted in for me.
    another buddyof mine bought a mission craze and just for kicks i shot it,and i was about 2' off the target when he is shootin decent groups.another buddy of mine has a mathews,he shoots well with it.i shot it and darn near the same thing about 2' off target.im lost on this because the other bow owners shot my bengal and they were dead nuts on target.i think it's just weird.any insight.

    GD, shorter ata's will do that. Also different grips and torquing the bow. Also you are use to a more stable bow. The Bengal to me is very stable.

    How 'bout draw length. Were they all the same as you? An inch off could be a change in your shooting form.

    the thing that just keeps eating at me is we were standin side by side shooting the same target and with our own bows in our hands hiting the same mark.arrows allmost kissin eachother.so i hand him my bow,he shoots dead on.he hands me his bow im way off to the left center.same thing with my buddy's mathews.but every other martin i have shot is good to go.just plain weird

    Idk,GD. I 'hooded one of my nephew's arrows shoooting his bow trying to show him what a proper grip does. In order to see through the peep, kisser is bout 1/4" below my nose. Shot was 15yds w a single fixed pin set for 30yds. He got the point I was trying to make about a consistent grip. Lol
