    Default Martin Tuners?

    Anybody know of a good Martin tuner in N.E. Oregon or S.E. Washington? Will the Martin Factory do a tune with custom strings? Don't get me wrong I love the way my Martin Silencer shoots. Just wondering how much better it could be after reading about some of the so called "super tuners".

    Super tuning or advanced tuning isn't major. I just finished one for a customer. It starts with a new string and cable(s). Then making sure you the bow is set to specs. Once set to specs then set the timing. Once timing is complete you do creep tuning. With that all said and done. I put it into the shooting machine and adjust the sight and rest. Then I set the bow to the right draw weight and draw length. Then I test it for fps. Usually you can pick up more speed and the bow will be a little bit quieter. The only other thing it does is let you sight it in at further yardage. Like I did in this video of my bow. Watch all three parts.

    How do you like Whitetails plus in Deer Park, Wa. I actually get up to Spokane every once in a while. Have friends in Post Falls and CDA. So a trip to Deer Park would not be out of the question for me if they do a good job.

    I drive 90 miles (one way) pass two pro shops and two Big box store to get to WhiteTails Plus. I recommended the shop to guys from CDA and returned home Happy. Plus they are a Martin Pro Dealer.

    Like the videos Hutch where did you post the build for it? I may want to build one...

    As for the super tuners though, for myself, I'm a DIY type of guy, and I like to know how things work and why... there are plenty of resources out there for those who want to learn (this great forum being one ). If a guy has the gumption to learn he won't need a "super tuner" tech, just him/her self. Just my .02...
