    Default Need a little help

    Hey guys I need your help. I have a 2010 Firecat TR2 With the 2 piece Martin Quiver,and a Tru-Glo Range Rover single pin sight.Last season groups were good sights were on.I had rotator cuff surgery in Feb 2011,Dr released me to shoot in July,I have been using a Ripshot release to help draw without shoulder pain,anyway when I shoot my 2010 Cheetah things are okay,but my Firecat shoots 2 inches to the right.I have good groups just to the right of where I aim.I have checked my grip,anchor etc.I can't move the sight over anymore without removing an arrow from the quiver,Which I can do if I need to.Also use a Whisker Biscuit and center shot looks good (eyeball).All screws are tight.Any ideas. Thanks

    Move your rest to the left slightly.

    I don't know if it is the Ripshot or something else. From Destroyers comment I assume he thinks the center shot is off. Here is a method I used called the 10 yard tuning. It will only take a couple shots and you will know if your sight or rest needs to move.
    __________________________________________________ _________________________

    Hang a target face so the bullseye is at your shoulder height.

    Put a nail at the top,
    and hang a weighted string,
    so the string splits the bullseye in half.

    Now,
    start at 9 feet. Yup, just 9 feet.

    Fire a field point arrow.

    If the field point arrow misses the string to the left,
    then move all the pins to the left. (Adjust the entire sight housing).

    If the field point arrow misses to the string to the right,
    then move all the pins to the right.

    The goal is to nail the string perfectly.
    You want your field point arrow to be exactly below the center
    of the bullseye.

    Now,
    go back to 10 yards.

    Fire a 3 arrow group.

    Find the center of the arrow group.

    If the center of the arrow group is to the left of the string,
    move the arrow rest to the right.

    If the center of the arrow group is to the right of the string,
    move the arrow rest to the left.

    Goal is to have the hanging string split your arrow group in half.

    Now,
    go back to 9 feet.

    Fire a field point arrow.

    If the field point arrow does not exactly nail the hanging string,
    then adjust all of your pins to the left or right,
    until the arrow is dead center under the exact center of the bullseye.

    Now,
    go back to 10 yards.

    Adjust the arrow rest in tiny amounts,
    until the hanging string splits your 3 arrow group in half.

    When you are done,
    you can fire a field point arrow from 9 feet
    and it will be exactly underneath the center of the bullseye.

    Your 3 arrow group from 10 yards,
    will also be split in half by the hanging string.

    Now, your centershot (arrow rest)
    and your windage (pins) will be perfect.

    Thank you sir,I will try this tomorrow.

    You don't have to worry about the bullseye part. You just need a string you can see hanging straight down. I use a length of my weed whacker line with a weight on the end. It is bright red and I can see it back at 10 yards. I tried using some of my wife's yarn but but I couldn't see it very well at 10 yards.

    Nope. You can still make small adjustments to the rest and not make a difference to centershot as far as tuning is concerned.

    You should make a new thread in the 'Bow Tuning Made Easy' subforum and put this method in there, good stuff!
