    Default why are my arrows fishtailing?

    i am shooting a martin threshold
    63lbs
    29" draw
    with carbon express mutiny 350's
    with a 125g montec g5 broadhead
    i am having trouble (to me) it looks like they arrows are fishtailing they are hitting in decent groups.
    i checked the rest - no contact had the pro shop look at it and they said it was all in tune.

    could i be over/under spine ?
    any help would be great thank you

    Yeah I would have checked center first, then clearance and if those two were tight I would then look at my grip and my release and follow through.

    I would be checking more the Indian than the Bow.

    Welcome Bowhunter8point, Check center shot, but also see if there is any vane contact. Spray some foot powder on the rest or arrow shoot and see if there is any contact.
