    Default tuning again and having issues with center shot

    Bows can do funny things. I've had the nocking point so low that the cock vane was getting deformed from hitting the rest and all while shooting bullet holes through paper. Next for brain burning, I've seen rests off badly and when shooting through paper a bullet hole came at longer distance, but then the arrow does correct itself. Even of the best tuned bows the arrow can be on it's worst behavior around 10 to 12 yards. Okay, it happens for no reason.

    Bow timed and all, I want the arrow coming out of the bow a little tail high. This way I know the arrow is basically coming out of the bow cleanly, no rest contact. I then set center shot back to the power stroke of the string.

    Eye ball/align the string to the groove of the upper cam or wheel and see where the arrow is. If off, move rest so arrow aligns with the string aligned to the groove of the cam or wheel. Just like any center shot procedure this is a starting point.

    Weird things still can take place. Aggravated to no end I have set center shot using a chronograph. Here, you look for the highest fps. Once found I go a bit farther with the rest to see if fps drops - you have so much of a span (little) where the highest fps will be recorded, so find the happy medium.

    The number 1 problem with shooters! Torquing the bow! But as archerx7 says let some one else shoot it, it really will show you where the bow is at.

    Very likely the problem or anchor. If it's possible to take a pic of you at fulll draw from side and rear shot, maybe something may come to light with your form. Have you had any coaching from a pro?

    Just remember, you don't want to actually grip the grip, your bow hand should be relaxed. When you get to full draw, try to relax your bow hand, don't wrap your fingers tightly around the grip. If you don't have a wrist sling, get one installed so you don't have to worry about dropping the bow at the shot.

    I changed my bow hand grip and boy did that ever help thanks guys. I have to remember that for the future. I just built a custom grip and it must have made me change something in my grip.
