    Default tuning again and having issues with center shot

    Hey guys bought a drop zone for my saber and paper tuned. I have bullet holes from 3-15 yards but the rest is set way to the right the fletching almost hits the front of the riser when shot. Is there anything that could cause my bow to tune so far to the right? Can a single cam bow be out of time and could that be it? I am pulling my hair out cause there is definatly something wrong. I forgot to mention its a 2010 saber 70#limbs and29 in draw. I shoot carbon express mayhem hunter 350 with 100 gr tips. Thanks in advance for your input.

    Check your idler lean and try making some adjustments to the yoke.

    My idler is cocked pretty far. (top is left) If I adjust the yoke should that straighten it out?

    Yes it will. After adjusting it make sure the ATA is right on both sides.

    If you need any help in how to do it just ask. If you already understand I hope it goes well for you.

    I tuned in the yoke so the idler is square last night. Tried it out this mornin and still shootin bullet holes at 5-15yards with the rest in the same position. without even checking the actuall measurment I'd say its about 3/4 in too far right. Any other ideas?

    I'd say that the sight is too far too the right, so that's why the bow shoots accurately with rest off center. Remember when you move the sight, it's opposite the way you think. If you move it to the right, the arrow hits farther left, and if you move it to the left, the arrow hits farther to the right.

    Have someone else shoot the bow through paper, you may be putting a little bit of tourqe in the grip. Also, if you have access to any other shafts or different weight points, try those as it could be a spine or shaft issue as well. Have you checked for vane contact with the rest ?
