Thanks Hutch its definatly off to the left quite a bit. Why would my paper tune have looked correct if the rest is so far off.
Put the elastic band on like this. This will give you an approx on the centering and the sight. You can also put an allen key in both limb bolts and then put on the elastic band. that will bring the band closer together to give you an even more accurate centering of the rest and sight
This is with using 2 allen keys in the limb bolts.
This surly gives the visual of alignment.
Bout 10 feet. I tried today to get it to paper tune without suceeding. I decided to start from scratch. I noticed that my rest was also too high, my arrow when level was sitting almost even with the top of the two holes in the riser. I changed my nock point to match my new rest height and I think tomorrow I am gonna try either walk back tuning or bare shaft tuning. Hopefully everything goes better tomorrow.
At 10 feet away some bows will bullet hole. My old altitude would at short distance, but at 20 to 30 yards it wouldn't. The method of putting the elastic over the bolts works well. Only if every thing else is right.
Walk back tuning is one of the best methods. I like this link that shows you how.
Sounds like you are on the right track once there the fun should begin.
I think I got it now. Hopefully I just needed to take a minute think and reckeck everything. Ill post tomorrow after tune and let you know how I make out.
Thanks for all your help
If you don't have the room to shoot long during walk-back tuning you could try French Tuning. I don't know how the Saber compares to some of the other Martin bows, but I could not get either my FireCat, Moab or Rytera AZ to paper tune or bare shaft tune so don't be surprised if you can't either. Sometimes it's just a matter of eyebaling for centershot and shoot the bow. Sounds ugly but that's just how it is sometimes.

I tried paper and walk back tuning again without any luck. I really think its a bad form thing more than bow not setup right. Im gonna try the french tune tomorrow thanks Bfisher. There really isnt much online about french tuning. Surprising because it looks so easy. Thanks again
