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.

    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...

    Wabbit. I agree. But my problem is I gotta do hands-on to learn. I have read all kinds of stuff and watched a bunch of videos and i do perform a lot of my own work. I would love to find someone willing to take the time to teach me the proper way to do this stuff. We don't have a good shop anywhere close. So doing all this stuff for me, my family and friends would be a big plus.
    GO DUCKS!

    jw, that's a slippery slope my friend lol; I started out learning for myself, and now all my friends that shoot bring their stuff to me... sometimes its daunting having a friend hand you a $500-1000 bow and say "I trust you", and knowing that if I break something its on me.

    However, I started just by reading what I could, watching videos on you tube, and then building/buying some basic equipment. A draw board can be made pretty easily, Martin sells an inexpensive draw scale, and a bowmaster press w/limb attachments and a chrono can both be had pretty cheap if you shop around. I think I've spent around $250-300 on my tuning equipment total over the last few years. Most of it was purchased just so I could set my Onza up myself, just before I purchased it.

    I'm no expert by any means, and there's some very knowledgeable and helpful people in this forum that are light years ahead of me, but I've learned more from just tweaking my bows myself and seeing the results than I would have otherwise. And if I get stuck I know I can come on here and ask a question. Besides, its also fun .

    Other than LaGrande, and Walla Walla, the only other place I know of down there is a little shop in Hermiston... I don't even know if he's still open lol.

    You guys better watch out. There's a downside to learning too much. I've been doing all my own work for almost 40 years, know too much, and always learning more. The problem with knowing so much is that you'll end up working on everybody else's equipment and not have time to shoot your own. This happens to me all the time. I got to the club to shoot a Vegas (600 round) for pratice. I usually get to shoot about 8 arrows and the rest of the evening is spent "bow teching" for other folks. And there's always some coaching going on, too.

    Two weeks ago I got my bow all rigged up for practice and never got to shoot an arrow although I was there for over two hours. It happens a lot on the outside practice range, too. As luck would have it I'm retired so I can go during the day when most everybody is working. And believe me, between getting older (eyes and muscles) I can use all the practice I can get.

    But, the other side of the coin is that I get to help others and pass along a lot of what I have learned during my shooting career. Some of my former students, like Merrill, have learned enough from me and from their own tinkering that they help others, too, and this is what floats my boat.

    Just think of all the people you've helped along the way . I know it may not be said often but we all thank you for your help and guidance. If we can all just take a little of what we learn in these forums and pass it on well all be that much better in the end...
