    Default Threshold Noob

    Hi to the forum. i am new to bows and thought i would get a 2012 threshold. I didn't want to get too deep in to start off with so after tons of research i opted for the best sub $250 bow i could find in my size. I received the Bow on Tuesday and i must say that i am very impressed with the over all fit and finish. I am taking the Bow to my local Wholesale sports because the Bowman said he would help me with initial setup. i will be shooting it at 65lbs with a cobra caliper release with victory vforce v-6 carbon 350 arrows at 30" draw with 31" shafts and 100gr field points for practice. After i put the sights quiver and rest on the bow i noticed that the arrows i selected had been fletched off center with the rest. is this ok or should i take them back and get different arrows? also my bow came with a different sight than mentioned. it was supposed to have a striker sight and it came with a Trophy ridge Sharp shooter sight.

    Thank you for your time and Thanks to Barry for helping to get my account on the forums going

    Hello,welcome to forum,just put your arrow on bow like your goint to shoot it,just dont draw it back,then turn arrow until you have cock vane up or down depending on rest.If it;s a dropaway then cock vane up.Make sure all your arrows end up in same position.
    As faR as sight goes there both about the same so it doesnt matter really.

    WC, glad to see you found your way into the forums. Congrats on your bow purchase. Although not as high tech as some bows your Threshold should suit your purposes very well for quite some time. You made a comment about the fletching of your arrows being off center in realtion to the rest. This isn't so. You can index the nocks in the arrows to a different position, meaning you can turn the nocks to whatever position you desire. Your bow guy should know this and help you out.

    Enjoy learning and shooting and if you have any questions be sure and ask. Don't be afraid to enter into converstaions on here, too. We're quite a friendly bunch and will be glad to educate you.

    Thank you both. I'm sure I'll like the bow. It feels nice and solid. I cannot wait to shoot it tomorrow after the sop gets it set up. I'm sure it will not be my last bow. This forum is full of great info. Thanks again for the fletching tips.

    Congrats on the new bow,
    I have a Threshold as well mine is set at 60 Lbs. with the f5 module. If you are using the Mantis rest the cock vane is indexed down. I got my bow at the end of deer season last fall and love it. I have been shooting a couple dozen arrows a day for the last couple weeks getting ready for the season. Enjoy your new bow and welcome to the forum.
